EVERY SIP COUNTS
Whilst there is no real rule on how much water we need every day, as we all have different percentages of water in our bodies, experts and doctors stress that water is the very best way to hydrate ourselves.
Athletes will mostly choose water charged with electrons, to give back to their depleted sources faster. Water is naturally charged with electrons, and will as everything over time oxidize. We all know antioxidants are good for us, however, few know that negatively charged water is one of the best sources of antioxidants we can get. When thinking about the amount of water we consist of, this theory does make more sense the more we think about it.
There are many ways to hydrate the body, all drinks are liquid, but not all necessarily contribute to your restoration. Whilst energy drinks and sodas have a high claim to fame and are drunk bountifully by the minute, these drinks are not considered very healthy. Just because its liquid, doesn’t mean it’s good for you and adds to your 8 cups per day rule. Many drinks like coffee, tea, energy drinks and alcohol may in fact dehydrate and deplete you more than they add back in. Sugar and caffeine loaded drinks open up to a whole new group of problems we can discuss more later. Your body needs pure clean water without sugars or additives for optimal hydration. If pure water is not your taste, try to instead find drinks with natural sweeteners to avoid the sugar crash syndrome.
Water sources with low electrons, and a so-called high negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential, negative ORP written as -ORP) offers the best for cell regeneration and anti-ageing. A high or positive number of electrons (+ORP) will act as free radicals and damage your DNA and cell structure, whereas a negative number of electrons (-ORP) will act as a strong antioxidant and help regenerate and rebuild cell damage.
A friend’s daughter was brought to the hospital a few weeks back after collapsing on the ground while playing with her friends. It was a hot summers day and she was diagnosed with dehydration. Her parents were confused with this diagnose as she diligently drank the recommended water intake for kids. The thing is, water intake also depends on our daily activity, and our external environments. If we are outdoors running as this girl was, and the heat index is higher than your regular day, we will need to take more liquids to replenish our body.
