Water & Nutrition
Water is the one nutritional supplement that everyone takes for granted until you miss it. It fills our bodies, down the smallest cells and it’s required for virtually every bodily function.
Besides the fact that our bodies are mostly water, and that water is needed for nearly every bodily process, some amazing things are being learned about water
Water as a means to reduce tiredness, and increase concentration: A lack of water is considered by some researchers to be the major cause of daytime fatigue. Research suggests that a tiny drop (even1-2%) in body hydration can result in short-term memory problems, cause trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on a computer screen.
When a work day feels long, and concentration is wavering - a walk to the water cooler and a drink may be all that’s required to get you back to peak performance. Try it for yourself.
A glass of water is recommended by many diets programs to shut down ‘hunger pangs.’ Some researchers have found evidence that indicates drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day can significantly ease back and joint pain. Other research indicates that drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer, breast cancer and bladder cancer.
So it is important to add water in your dietary plans if you wish to improve on your health.
