The benefits of drinking purified water

Drinking pure water is the second most important function to healthy living, just behind breathing oxygen.

We as a human race can live for around a month without eating but we would die if we did not drink healthy water for three days. This is because our bodies are made up of 80% water and without this vital substance, we would poison ourselves to death.

Not only does pure drinking water aid in the digestion process but it also keeps our body temperature at a regular level, helps distribute oxygen and essential nutrients around the body and clears waste products and other toxins from the system. You can begin to see what may happen when we lack drinking water in the amounts we need to function – the body can begin to suffer from the debilitating effects of dehydration. Some of the effects of this are:

  • Stomach Pain
  • Lack of Energy
  • Dry “Cotton” Mouth
  • Dizziness and Headaches

Long term, the effects of dehydration can cause issues such as weight gain, high stress levels, kidney stones and other urinary problems and even asthma.

On the health benefits of drinking water side, drinking the right amount of pure water can increase your concentration, help your skin and protect you from sickness.

It is well known that 8 glasses of water per day is about the right amount of water to drink to stay healthy, vital and active. Obviously this is just a general guide, and if you are exercising or the weather temperature is high, you will need to have much more than this.

8 glasses of water per day is enough to cover the body’s natural loss of around 2.4 litres of water per day. This is lost through perspiration, urine, sweat and faeces on a daily basis, and an increase in the loss from any of these areas will require an increase in the intake of drinking water to make up for this loss.

Be sure to benefit your health from drinking pure water.
