During my time working as a Kinesiologist, it has become very apparent that there is a lot of misunderstanding about the significance of drinking water.
Now I know we all hear about this "8 glasses of water a day bit.............." Actually there a great deal of advertising & media coverage about it, (especially advertisers selling bottled water) but has anyone explained to you the real reason why you should drink "8 glasses per day."
I have found dealing with 16 / 20 clients per week, that most of my new clients have no idea.............
I wish to share some of the fantastic ways that drinking 1.5L - 2L of water per day, can possibly turn your life around.
Your body & brain are comprised of 79% water. For your total system to function correctly, it must be well hydrated.
(That means that you need to drink water.....)
Now some people will tell you that they do drink water (in tea / coffee / cordial / mineral water based drinks.)
Your body does not see this "water" as a substance that it can easily absorb.
These substances (tea / coffee / cordial etc...) need to be broken down, so your body can take out the water for it's own use.
The process of breaking down these substances uses the equivalent energy of 2/3 glasses of water to break down 1 coffee etc......
What does this really mean to you? - It means that for every tea / coffee / cordial / fizzy drink / alcohol drink that you absorb into your system, your body requires the energy of 2/3 glasses of water to negate the "other drink" that you have drunk.
So how can drinking water help me?
