Hydration: The Key to Mental and Physical Health

Water is composed of hydrogen and oxygen, and is an essential compound that is plentiful under the earth’s surface and essential for the survival for all plant and animal life.  Sounds simple right?  Well, we also know that hydration is a vital part of human life, but many people underestimate the power and health benefits of staying hydrated with water—not coffee, tea, soft drinks, or alcohol.  Water.  Without water, life on earth would be impossible.  In addition to this fact, staying hydrated beneficially affects your mental and physical health.  If you take into account that 75% of human bodies are made up of water, this makes sense! Water is vital to our physical health. The Mayo Clinic recommends that men drink approximately 3.7 liters or 15 ½ cups of water per day and about 2.7 liters or 11 ½ cups a day for women.  While it is obvious that if you don’t drink enough water you’ll be dehydrated and thirsty, water also plays a huge role in our body’s brain, muscular, and cardiovascular functions.  Our heart is a very large and complicated muscle; when we are dehydrated, our blood thickens, making it more difficult to pump, increasing our blood pressure and, in certain heart conditions, can lead to death.  In addition to our heart muscle, hydration is also key for all muscles to effectively function.  Without proper hydration, we suffer cramps in larger muscles like the legs, and even more so if you are working out!  It is recommended that we drink water every 15 minutes during workouts due to increased activity and losing water through sweating. Hydration affect one’s mental health too!  Do you ever feel anxious, stressed, irritable, or overwhelmed?  If so, you are most likely dehydrated.  Making sure you drink a lot of clean, purified water can also combat depression—as well as the ever-popular term coined from the pandemic times: brain fog.  When you are dehydrated, your body will sap your brain’s energy, which also impedes serotonin production.  Overall stress increases, leading to anxiety, irritability, and panic attacks.  Drinking water is one thing, but you want to make sure you are drinking the highest-quality water available, and that would be purified reverse osmosis (RO) drinking water from the Kinetico K5 Drinking Station.  There are many benefits to having a Kinetico RO water system installed in your home.  Over time, it will help save the planet from plastic water bottle waste, save you time from shopping repeatedly for cases of water, and it will save you money.  Did you know people around the world are drinking approximately 70 million water bottles per day?
