A glass of water has been one drink that has been close to my heart. Sipping a glass of chilled water makes me feel good and energetic. I tell most of my friends to replace soft drinks with a bottle of water whenever they have a craving, headache, or hunger pangs.
It’s a fact, human brain is 90% water, the human body is 70% water and all the blood vessels and every cell in the body is composed of water. Therefore, it goes without saying that water is essential for proper functioning of the body. You can call it a lubricant.
How Much Water To Consume
The amount of water you should consume is an individual choice. However, if you are suffering from regular headaches, constipation or have dry skin, its most likely that you aren’t drinking enough water. Usually eight glasses of water are required by the human body. However, every body’s needs is different.
Dress up a glass of chilled fresh water with a squeeze of sweet lime, orange or lemon juice, add a sprig of mint, few slices of cucumber and toast to your health. If you are a health freak, instead of tap water drink mineral or vapor-distilled water.
What Is Vapor Distilled Water
Vapor distilled water is the safest type of bottled water to drink as it is free of dissolved minerals. The process of manufacturing is simple. The water is boiled, evaporated and the condensed vapors are harvested into the bottles. This water has the ability to absorb toxins from the body and eliminate them subsequently. These are easily available in online stores these days.
