Water Fact:
The water on the earth today is the same as the water that was here when the Earth was formed and when the dinosaurs lived. We keep using the same water over and over and over.

 

 

 

 


Water and You ~
You are what you drink!


Magic potion? Necessity of life? Wet and wild?

 

Water is all of these!

 

Water is essential to nearly all of our body functions, from running to thinking. In fact, our bodies are almost two-thirds water. We don't slosh when we move because all of that water is busy working for us!

 

Water:

  • regulates body temperature
  • carries nutrients and oxygen to cells
  • flushes waste away from cells
  • works as shock-absorber for organs
  • helps convert food to energy
  • cushions joints
  • makes up 92% of the blood
  • makes up 22% of bones and 75% of muscle
  • makes up 75% of the brain

 

The average adult excretes 2½ to 3 quarts of water a day. To maintain an adequate supply of water for your body to function efficiently, you need to drink at least eight 8-oz. glasses of water every day.

 

WATER FACTS
Even if the only exercise you get is breathing, you still need to drink water!

 

They say we're 98% water.
We're that close to drowning.
-Steven Wright

 

You can't rely on thirst to tell you when your body needs a drink. Most people don't usually feel thirsty until they have already become partially dehydrated. Also, the thirst signal shuts off before you have had enough liquid to make up the deficit. The best way to be sure your body has all the water it needs to function at peak level is to drink water regularly, whether you're thirsty or not. Sometimes your body needs even more water than usual.

 

These times include:

  • during hot weather: You lose more water through perspiration. Even a small water deficit can cause headaches and dizziness.
  • when you exercise: You lose water through both perspiration and exhalation, even in cold weather.
  • when you're sick: Water helps get rid of toxins, loosen congestion and replace moisture lost through fever, vomiting, or diarrhea.
  • while pregnant and nursing: Blood volume expands during pregnancy and extra water is needed for adequate milk supply. 10 to 12 (8-oz.) glasses per day are recommended.
  • when traveling: The low humidity inside airplanes and at mountain resorts can dry your eyes and respiratory passages, worsen jet lag, make you irritable, and actually interfere with physical and mental function. Drink 12-20 (8-oz.) glasses per day.
  • when dieting: Water flushes away toxins formed by the breakdown of fat and muscle. Drinking extra water also helps retain muscle tone and suppresses your appetite.
  • Babies and seniors easily become dehydrated. Make sure infants drink plenty of liquids. Urge older family members to drink water between meals.

 

Some drinks actually decrease your body's water supply! Called diuretics, these liquids cause your body to excrete water:

  • alcoholic beverages
  • caffeinated tea
  • caffeinated coffee
  • carbonated soft drinks

 

In addition, milk and drinks with a high sugar content contain so many solids they actually increase your body's need for water. The best way to be sure your body has an adequate moisture supply is to drink plenty of clean, fresh water every day!
