Healing with Proper Hydration
Did you know that without proper hydration, you can experience:
- Digestive issues (including kidney health and constipation)
- Hair, skin and nail issues
- Sleepiness and Irritability
- Immune Function
As a general rule, to stay properly hydrated adults need to consume a sufficient amount of water each day. A good measure is to take your weight in pounds, then divide in half. The resulting number is the approximate amount of ounces you should have each day. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds, you should drink at least 60 ounces of pure water each day. Another general rule: your urine should be the color of lemonade, not apple juice! If you enjoy caffeinated beverages (tea, coffee, and/or soda) in your diet, you should drink extra water to offset the diuretic effects of the caffeine.
Whether you are at home or at the office, it’s important to have quality water available. But don’t just reach for bottled water– here are 10 reasons to avoid bottled water. Instead, consider investing in a water cooler that purifies your water as needed. The Quench company offers free standing and countertop versions of water purification and dispensing systems that features layered carbon filter and optional reverse osmosis. This cleans out gunk from your water supply, and helps you save 300 to 2,100 5-gallon plastic water jugs annually. The Quench water systems use the full array of purification technologies to remove bacteria, viruses, parasites, toxins, and bad taste, and claim to be the only ones in the industry who do so. The purification steps they use include UV sanitization, 5 stage carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, BioCote anti-microbial protection, food-grade tubing and stainless steel tanks to create delicious, pure hydration.
