Are You Dehydrated?

Most Americans are chronically dehydrated and don’t realize it. By the time your mouth feels dry, your body is in acute dehydration and serious problems may begin to show such as fatigue, high or low blood pressure, respiratory troubles, obesity, eczema, infections and a multitude of other issues. The human body consists of 70% water, the brain consists of 80% water, and blood consists of 90% water. Let’s face it; we rely on water as the basis of our existence — not Pepsi, juice, coffee, or beer. We need to ingest water in its purest form, free from any chemicals in order for our cells to remain hydrated and our body systems functioning as they should.
Can you drink 64 ounces of tap water? Chlorination makes tap water safe to use but it can also react with organic compounds to produce toxic substances. So, do you think that bottled water is healthier than tap water or do you like the packages? In a four-year scientific study they tested more than 1,000 bottles of 103 brands, a third of them were found to contain contaminants such as arsenic and carcinogenic. Yet, bottled water is so popular and available almost everywhere: the bottled water industry enjoys annual sales of more than $35 billion worldwide.

I recommend restructured Alkaline water that helps to energize, oxidize, and reduce acid in the body. Most bodies are too acidic from the foods we eat. Alkaline water offers clean water without chemicals but has the minerals your body needs. Mention this article at Fitness Spa and we will be happy to offer you free alkaline water sample. We just bought our machine and are pleased with the results. It’s all about health!
