Let’s Talk Water

Let’s Talk Water

Let’s talk water.

It is more important than ever to look after yourself. You can’t look after others unless you are well yourself.

There is not set rule on the amount of water to drink everyday although many sources recommend 2 litres. We would say, in the first instance, just increase the amount of water you drink. Maybe start with two glasses more per day and see how you go. If the target isn’t too high, it is all the more achievable.

Our bodies are made up of 60 percent water, and our blood is 90 percent water.

Here are just some of the things that our body uses water for.

Oxygen in Blood
Blood is more than 90 percent water, and blood carries oxygen to different parts of the body.

Digestion
The bowel needs water to work properly. Dehydration can lead to digestive problems.

Body waste
Water is needed in the processes of sweating and removal of urine and feces.

Blood pressure
A lack of water can cause blood to become thicker, increasing blood pressure.

Kidneys
The kidneys regulate fluid in the body. Insufficient water can lead to kidney stones and other problems.

Joints
Long-term dehydration can reduce the joints’ shock-absorbing ability, leading to joint pain.

Saliva
Saliva helps us digest our food and keeps the mouth, nose, and eyes moist. Drinking water keeps the mouth clean and so helps fight tooth decay.

Weight loss
Drinking water before meals can help prevent overeating by creating a sense of fullness.
