One of the most important things you can do for your health is to hydrate! Most people suffer from chronic dehydration. The amount of water your body needs is half your weight in ounces to function at optimal level. So if you weigh 140 lbs, you should be drinking 70 ounces of water daily. If you work out, then add another 10 ounces.
Note: Juice and tea does not count as your daily water requirement. Also, you don’t want to drink with meals as it interferes with digestion. If drinking is necessary with a meal; then add lemon to the water. The morning is the best time to drink as much as possible, as your body is naturally dehydrated after sleep.
Drinking the right amount of water ensures that your cells don’t sit in a stagnant pool and that there’s proper fluid exchange. Food can’t digest well in a dehydrated colon and absorption of nutrients can’t happen without proper water. So if you’re ready to make one change this month, start by drinking MORE pure and clean WATER!
Tip for the week: Drink more water!
