There’s hydration and then there is super-hydration
Filter Systems Australia
Hydration means a lot more than just drinking plenty of water. Hydration needs electrolytes — the minerals necessary for health, which influence hydration. The body functions better when its’ fluids are balanced and electrolytes steer water and nutrients to where they are most needed to perform bioelectrical functions such as muscle contractions, heart beats, and even thinking and seeing. And to signal thirst too, of course. Water keeps the kidneys functioning and boosts intelligence, while dehydration impairs performance. Light coloured, clear urine means you are probably well hydrated, whereas if your urine is strong-smelling and dark you may well be dehydrated.
Be sure to filter your water
Eighty-five per cent of tap water is probably contaminated nowadays, so click through to The Water Filter Superstore products — we sell purifying products and filter systems in Australia, at highly competitive prices so that you can drink pure, clear, clean water all the time.
Raw vegetables and fruit
Seventy per cent of your diet should consist of food with a high water content, so you should actually focus on fruit — watermelons, cherries and blueberries have a very high water content — and raw vegetables — cucumbers and courgettes, tomatoes and celery have too — and start drinking water as soon as you wake up, and ideally every 20 minutes or so throughout the day.
Put some fruit in your water, or even sea salt if you like
But thirst is subjective, and not necessarily a very reliable indicator of hydration. Sports coaches recommend one cup of liquid for every half-pound you lose taking prolonged exercise. Water may not be enough if you are exercising hard — you may need to add a pinch of sea salt to your water or a chunk of fruit or, perhaps occasionally down the sugar free version of a sports drink to maintain electrolytes.
All the benefits
Super-hydration, on the other hand, encourages nutrient absorption and helps the body’s natural detoxification by maintaining healthy intestinal flora and balancing pH-levels. It also improves your skin, neutralizes free radicals, works as an antioxidant, and has antibacterial and antifungal properties. It may even help you to lose weight.
