It is no secret that water is the healthiest thing you can drink. It is pure moisture without added flavors. There are no superfluous sugars and it is separate from alcohol or caffeine. So whether you like water or not .. you really do well to drink the required liters of water every day. However, the theories about the required amount of liters of water diverge. But if you put all theories together, the average is 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day. This is recommended for average, healthy adult people. Drink plenty of water, give the body what it needs.
A formula has been developed where you can get a personal indication of how much water your body needs per day. The formula is as follows:
0.03 x your body weight = the number of liters of water you have to drink in a day. Again, they are all theories. Whether you use the formula is entirely up to you.
Why you must drink water when get up in the morning. Do you know what I think is strange? We humans know only too well that drinking enough water is very important, and yet we continue to drink soft drinks. Why does not it trigger us to go on a healthy tour?
The main reason for sufficient water is that you purify your body. You stimulate the functioning of your kidneys. The kidneys in your body have the function to filter the body. This is how your kidneys filter:
However, the transport of these waste materials does not take place automatically. The kidneys need water for that. By drinking the required liters of water in a day, you promote the functioning of your kidneys. And yes, that is why drinking water is a must!
Good blood circulation is important for your body. As described above, your kidneys filter waste from the body. However, these waste products do not automatically end up at your kidneys. That is what the blood takes care of. The blood carries all waste materials to your kidneys. And your kidneys then ensure that the waste products leave your body. By drinking enough water you stimulate your own blood circulation. When you drink too little water, you dry out. With dehydration, the blood in your body thickens. As a result, the circulation of the blood goes faster and a lot slower through the body. With this you have a chance that the waste will not be fully processed. Drinking enough water lays the foundation for good blood circulation. And that subsequently works positively for the functioning of your kidneys. Very important!
We often live under the assumption that coffee is the drink that will give us more energy. And although some theories have already been written about it, I do not think it actually gives you more energy. Because of the caffeine your body only gets a "boost". A boost that makes you feel temporarily less tired. Coffee is ideal for the short term. Only we often do not know that with too much coffee the moisture is drained away from your body more quickly. The result is that you have less fluid in your body. And a consequence of insufficient fluid in your body is that you get tired faster. Drinking sufficient water consistently gives you more energy in the longer term than the occasional cup of coffee. A cup of coffee will give you a boost in the short term, but will make you more tired in the long term. With too much caffeine you reduce the vitamin B content in your body. And this is important for the energy in your body.
There are no calories in water. In contrast, an average of 80 calories is consumed in a soft drink. With just 6 glasses of cola a day, you are about 480 calories. If you consider how many calories you can only have in a day, then you are already well on your way with 6 glasses of cola. Soft drinks are therefore fatal. You reduce daily aches and pains.
