Drinking water provides countless benefits to your body.

Water is the reason for the existence of life on earth. From human beings to animals, from tiny plants and huge trees to micro-organisms like bacteria, every living being on the planet requires water to survive.

Water is a vital nutrient for your body. The body comprises about 60 percent of water, therefore, you must always ensure to keep yourself well hydrated so your body functions properly.

Although the benefits of water are many, drinking adequate amount of water is crucial for you as it proves to be an asset for your body.

Facts about consuming water

  • Water facilitates the removal of harmful toxins and waste materials from the body
  • Drinking moderate amount of water can help you to lose weight
  • Water assists in regulating your body temperature
  • Water carries oxygen to your brain

Benefits of drinking adequate water every day

  • Drinking about 2 to 3 litres of water daily boosts your skin quality and enhances your complexion
  • Water forms the mucus and saliva in the mouth and keeps the eyes and nose moist which prevents damage due to friction
  • Your digestive system depends on water, so apart from eating healthily, you must also drink enough water to ensure that your digestive system functions appropriately
  • Water facilitates your body to assimilate vitamins, minerals, amino aids, lipids and more

In addition to drinking water, taking a hot or cold shower has also been proven to have various perks for your body.

Taking a shower reduces fatigue in the body and can improve your heart health. A shower after a lazy day can help you get the blood actively flowing through the body. A study has proven that taking a bath can trigger Stress Induced Analgesia which reduces pain. Getting in the shower is also beneficial for your brain as it promotes memory, learning, maintenance and growth of nerve cells.

Water is a vital element to lead a joyful life. Healthy eating is key, and the proper intake of water is also necessary to keep dehydration and diseases at bay. In addition to this, taking a shower in natural water is also essential to maintain the cleanliness and health of your skin and hair.

The importance of quality hydration

We all hear how important it is to stay hydrated.  Especially when we’re in summer!  The heat and humidity in  the northern parts of Australia will have you sweating, and feeling it! However, in the southern states of Australia and New Zealand while you are still sweating, the dryer air evaporates the sweat. 

So, in all areas of these two countries staying hydrated is very important, as is the quality of water you are drinking.  Some water that comes from your town supply is filtered with chemicals to kill bacteria and take out other contaminants including heavy metals.

A little salt is a great addition to your drinking water.  As research has shown that salt assists the water to penetrate the walls of your blood cells.  This in turn assists in transporting the water to the necessary organs and muscles  of your body, including your brain. 

If you feel woozy or a headache coming on in summer take a couple of grains of natural salt and roll it around on your tongue to dissolve it then drink a glass of body temperature water.  This will allow the salt and water to penetrate your stomach lining and the body can direct the water to where ever your brain feels you need it.

As mentioned, the quality of water you drink is extremely important.  If, by consuming water, you also consume too many contaminants these will need to be filtered out through your liver and kidneys.  These two vital organs also require a flush and this isn’t as effective without clean water.

A great filter to have above, under your sink or the whole house is the Extreme Wellness Water Filter System.  This system removes 99% of contaminants in tap water and allows your body to make quick, effective use of the water when ingested.  The whole house system also improves the vapour you are breathing in whilst showering.
