You hear experts speak about the benefits of water all the time. Have you ever wondered what particularly makes water more nutritious? We would like to set the record straight.
Why choose water? If you are not already a big water drinker, the sound of it is probably rather blah. It doesn’t hold the same appeal as soda or juice. It lacks the same flavor.
However, you likely already realize that water is the ideal beverage for everyone (except newborns.)
It helps your body keep a normal temperature, lubricates your joints, protects your spinal cord, and aids your body with its waste-removal process.
The CDC has a great illustration on its website, that of an unwatered houseplant. Have you ever seen one? It’s all wilted and droopy. Well, let’s be honest, your body requires water just as much as any plant.
Your body is made up of 50-65% water. Therefore, when you are out in hot climates, or exercising and your body is losing fluids through sweating, you must replace that water.
You may wonder how it is possible to ever get enough water. The easiest way to always have enough water is to always have water with you. And if the taste of water is somewhat unpleasant, try adding a slice of lemon or lime.
Are you familiar with the adage, “once you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated”? It is a true statement. You do not want to get to the point of being thirsty as far as you can help it.
How much water should you drink? A Harvard study put it very simply: “It depends.” It depends on what you eat, how much you eat, the day’s weather, and your level of physical activity. The Institute of Medicine has established a guideline of 125 ounces for men and 91 ounces for women.
Water is the perfect beverage. It provides you all the hydration you need with zero calories and zero sodium. It quenches your thirst and restores your body. It is true, there is no actual nutritional value to water; however, you can get all your nutrients from your food choices and a multivitamin.
To whatever extent possible, choose water above all other beverages and your body will never become like a wilted houseplant!
