Water is the most important constituent in the human body. The water content of an adult is 70 percent. Hence, the organs are made of much more water than solid materials. The kidneys, for example, consist of 82 percent water; the brain is 74 percent water; the muscles are 75 percent water; the liver is 75 percent water. The hard parts of the body also have copious water in them. The bone consist of 22 percent water and the teeth are 5 percent water.
Water can enter the body through not only the mouth, but also lungs and skin. In some metabolism processes, water is produced as metabolic waste. An adult produces about 0.66 pound metabolic fluid per day. After the body absorb and use water, it will expel water by four routes: kidneys (urine), skin (sweat), lungs (vapor), and intestines. Water is in and out the body all the time. It is critical to maintain a hydric balance for the body to function properly.
Water plays a fundamental role in health. To drink water in sufficient quantity on a daily basis, not only maintains the body in good working condition but can also prevent and heal many health disorders.
There are research findings showed that fatigue, energy depletion, depression, anxiety, high and low blood pressure, high cholesterol, digestion disorders, eczema, rheumatism, and premature aging could all be caused by a chronic lack of water in the body. The fact is, you are not sick but just thirsty! Science has discovered that these problems, and many others, can be effectively prevented or treated by correct hydration.
Drink more water
People assume they have taken enough water on a daily basis. They consume plentiful amounts of fluid like coffee, tea, and all kinds of soft drinks. However, these beverages are far less effective in hydrating the body than plain water. Furthermore, our bodies’ need for water nowadays is much higher than it once was. Our food is too rich, concentrated and salty. The use of dehydrating substances such as coffee, alcohol and tobacco is very common. Stress, air-conditioned homes, offices, and stores, air and water pollution, and food contamination – all contribute to our increased need for water.
As a consequence, many people do not realize that they are chronically dehydrated, which may have resulted in many of their health problems. There is only one solution: drink a lot more water.
The recommended amount of water that you should consume in a day can be determined by taking your weight and dividing it in half. This is the number of ounces of water that you should drink on a daily basis.
Timing for Water:
- 30 minutes before meals and 2.5 hours after meals
- the first thing in the morning
- 1 hour before bed
- before exercise
Drink better water
In a study published in Environmental Science and Technology, drugs such as antibiotics, hormones, strong pain killers, tranquilizers, and chemotherapy drugs have been measured in surface, ground, and tap water. The U.S. water supply has 10 times the antibiotics as the German water supply. Therefore, a water treatment device is needed to ensure the quality of drinking water.
Quality drinking water need to meet three criteria:
- Hygiene: Free of pathogenic bacteria, particles and turbidity.
- Safety: Free of chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals and any contaminants
- Health: abundant in beneficial minerals; energized/magnetized to help cells facilitate the process of import nutrient and get rid of waste.
Though there are so many different devices on the market, they can be categorized into reverse osmosis (RO), distillation, filtering, and electrolysis. Each has its own advantages and shortcomings.
The water treatment device we recommend to our clients is i water manufactured by Japin International.
