It has been a long time debate; people often ask that drinking 8 glasses of water in a day is enough to keep us hydrated and healthy. According to some experts this specification is outdated but according to the Institute of Medicine, there is a specification for men and women and that is:
Women, with ages 19 or more than 19 need 2.7 liters of water that is around 11 glasses a day.
Men, on the other hand needs 3.7 liters i.e. 15 glasses a day.
According to a survey, Americans drink around 3 liters of beverages in a day and water is just a quarter in that. These non-water drinks, such as cold drinks, sodas etc. provide fluids to the body but it also provides the calories that are not nutritious. Therefore to keep restoring the fluids which your body loses through different process and to stay balanced, pure water is the best.
The new studies by researches in the Human Performance Lab of University of Connecticut found that a mild dehydration is just the loss of 1.5% of water. Water is not only important for your physical health but it is important for your mental health too. It is found that if you stay hydrated and complete the fluid loss in your body, you will feel 60% happier than the person whose water intake is improper.
Therefore plenty amount of water intake is very important for our body, however it is equally important to consider what kind of water you are providing to your body to stay in the hydration process. Well if it is the bottled water or tap water which is supplied to your house then I am sorry to say but in order to stay hydrated you are actually going more close to incurable diseases and creating more harm to your body. Tap water is actually now the biggest source of all the water pollutants and impurities. It has fluoride, it has chemicals, it has lead and it has much more harmful content which even can be the cause of cancer. Bottled water, on the other hand contains micro plastics which are very dangerous for the human body and most of the bottled water actually use the ordinary tap water.
Without any doubt, water intake is very important, but getting pure and impurities free water is more important. Whole house water filters can provide you the best quality of water if you are looking for water filtration systems at home, as ordinary water filters only provide you safety from the water you are drinking but what about the water which you use for bathing and for other house hold purposes. As humans have small pores all over the body and water entering through these pores and can harm you if it is not pure. Therefore complete safety from the contaminated water should be the first concern and whole house water filters are the best buy in that case.
Staying hydrated and drinking pure and clean water really can make you better person by mind and body.
