Spring Water + Hydration
WHAT IS NATURAL SPRING WATER?
Drinking fresh, clean high-quality natrual spring water is considered by many studies to be the best form of natural drinking. What is natural spring water? Spring water is water sourced from mountains that is clean, fresh, unprocessed and free from artificial treatment – it is truly alive! It’s considered by many to be the safest kind of drinking water since it’s free of toxins, natural, and contains all essential minerals required by the human body.
WHY DRINK NATURAL SPRING WATER?
Spring water is the way nature intended drinking water to be. And because natural water that passes through rocks will always pick up minerals, spring water Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, and Potassium in just the right amount and proportion required by the human body. Some studies have shown that drinking water containing the right concentration of these minerals can help in preventing a wide range of health conditions. Natural spring water is healthier & safer than drinking filtered water, alkaline water, ionized water, or tap water. It is also better than distilled water because distilled water is nothing but pure H2O – which doesn’t exist in nature & doesn’t contain minerals thath help destroy pathogens in the body.

HOW TO HYDRATE & HOW LONG IT TAKES
Each and every cell, tissue & organ in our body depends on water to survive. We’ve all heard that up to 60% of the adult human body is made of water. Our bodies use water to maintain temperature, lubricate joints, and remove waste – it is essential for good health!
Many conditions influence how fast your body absorbs water. For example, if you drink water on an empty stomach, it can pass through your stomach & large intestine to enter your bloodstream in as little as 5 minutes – especially if the water is cold. However, if you are eating while you drink water, it might take 45+ minutes to enter your bloodstream because the stomach has to first digest your food before allowing the water to pass through. So we can estimate that on average it takes 5-120 minutes for water to fully absorb into your bloodstream. For more research, check out this site: Explained Health.
It is recommended that the average human drink 6-8 glasses of water per day, but keep in mind that every body is different and that it’s possible to hydrate with other fluids too, as well as in foods (such as watermelon, tomatoes, lettuce, and soup broth). If you’re in doubt about if you’re drinking enough water for your body, check your urine – it should be colorless or a light yellow. Any darker, and you should up your daily water intake! It’s important to note that if you ever feel headache, confusion, extreme sleepiness or extreme thirst, you may be dehydrated. To maximize hydration, drink water before you eat.
If you find it hard to remember to drink your 6-8 glasses per day,
try these tips & tricks:
Drink slow & steady (throughout the day, versus a lot at one time)
Buy a reusable water bottle & fill it up every morning, then make sure to keep it with you during the day so it’s always at hand
Thirst is often confused with hunger – so when you’re hungry try drinking water first
When you go to a restaurant always ask for a glass of water first before ordering so you have it at hand
If you just don’t like the taste of water, add lemon or lime slices. Lemon also helps in aiding your digestion, hydrating your lymph system, has a load of nutrients including potassium and vitamin C, reduces inflammation and gives you an energy boost.
Schedule your water drinking – for example, a small glass at the beginning of each hour. For maximum absorption drink right in the morning & two hours before heavy exercise.
