WATER!

I always wanted to write ..a blog on water.. seeing its significance and our busy life schedule ,sometimes we are more mechanised and run on aerated water causing health issues... The most important ingredient in human life..If I am thirsty ..its only water that will quench my thirst .. to me .. life runs on water. Water is a major component of every body cell, tissue and organ. It plays an important role in almost every body function, most of our body is made of water... Today’s lifestyle and the soft drinks penetration in the markets has made the much sought after drink in the back burner....In earlier times, people used to walk a lot and after a long walk have 2-3 glasses of water. my grandfather always said that..nothin like water... Water was a drink which people consumed in great quantities and never complained of ailments that we do now. .....dehydration can cause serious damage as water also provides oxygen to brain..symptoms of fatigue can also be termed as lack of hydration in the body...I prefer water to any other drink or juice..even at parties... It helps to stay active and remove toxins giving an added glow..to skin..and off course to life too... Many a times I see people drinking water only when they are thirsty like in winters generally only during meals ..but eight glasses a day is considered to be healthy.. starting my day with a an eight ounce glass of Luke warm water is my general habit since last so many years... During exercise or in gym I usually finish my two litre bottle in an hour .. it helps body to stay active, refresh mind...I usually prefer chilled water during exercising ..as it helps in better workout... The vast majority aren't drinking enough water to begin with and to make matters worse, many don't realize that beverages containing alcohol and caffeine actually rob the body of water." (. People just assume that their body is hydrated with the coke that they drank for lunch and the beer from after work. The key to feeling the effects of water is to begin drinking and to drink continuously throughout the day.... important reasons ..
  • It regulates body temperature.
  • Makes up 83% of blood.
  • Composes 75% of brain.
  • Moistens oxygen for breathing
  • Helps convert food into energy
  • Protects and cushions vital organs
  • Helps body absorbs nutrients
  • Makes up 75% of muscles
  • Cushions joints
  • Accounts for 22% of brain
  • Removes waste
Painful joints a signal of water shortage. It can affect the young as well as the old. The use of painkillers does not cure the problem, but exposes the person to further damage from pain medications. Intake of water will cure this problem to a certain extent....
  • Benefit of drinking water to prevent and treat Depression: hydration helps the body naturally replenish its supply ...

  • Benefit of drinking water to prevent and treat Sleep disorders: hydration is needed for the production of nature's sleep regulator...

  • Benefit of drinking water to prevent and treat Lack of energy: water generates electrical and magnetic energy in every body cell, providing a natural power boost....

  • Benefit of drinking water to prevent and treat Attention Deficit: a well hydrated brain is continually energized to imprint new information in its memory banks....

On average, the human brain weights 1.4 Kilograms (about 3 pounds). It is estimated that the brain consists of 85% water. The brain is extremely sensitive to water loss. It is said that the brain cannot tolerate even a 1% loss of water. If it were to be dehydrated to the point of being only 84% water for long, the brains would not function properly. (Remember that nerve cells in the brain are one-time-living units. They don't multiply like other cells in the body and don't regenerate). Dehydration can cause damage in the blood vessels in the brain, leading to bleeding and plaques, which are at the base of most neurological disorders like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.
Recently I had an eye examination. The doctor told me that our cornea is 80% water. Working long hours on the computer makes the eyes dry. Just closing the eyes for a few seconds every hour and blinking frequently allows liquid from the tear glands to moisturize and lubricate the cornea. He also recommended regular drinking of water for good eye health... .......To lose the excess fluids, you may need to drink MORE water. Dehydration can cause the body to retain fluid that will be released as you drink more water. The goal is to keep lots of fluid flowing through your body. To do this, drink more water along with salt intake... Benefits of water are endless.. we need to have awareness and add it as an important ingredient in life...leave all other drinks and stick to water during ..before and after meals...
I am sure you wanna have a glass of water now!!
WATER FOR LIFE!!!
