Drinking water is healthy - and certainly not a luxury on a summer day. Drinking lemon water in the morning is good for you. We all know that now. But how much water is enough and how is that traveling? We put it in a row for you.
We first need to drink water for a good moisture balance. The guideline of 1.5 to 2 liters per day also gives us more energy, reduces headaches, drains the toxins from the body and ensures a good skin condition. Before you cling to the familiar 8 glasses a day: the required amount varies per person. What does drinking 2 liters of water a day with your body.
In addition to water, tea, coffee, milk and juices are also options to maintain the moisture balance. Your desired drinking behavior depends on many factors, such as age, weight, or a lot of sport, your diet and the temperature outside. If you sport fanatically one day you obviously need more water, because you lose a lot of fluid. Fact: you have to replenish what you lose. When you move a little and are in cool spaces, you need less. In addition, pregnant women can also use more swallows and when breastfeeding is given 2 to 2.5 liters per day is recommended. When you eat a lot of salt and protein, turning the tap on regularly is also a good idea. Copper: alcohol has a moisture-exerting effect, so keep this in mind. Have you eaten something wrong while traveling with many toilet visits as a result? Well refuel! Ok, how can you check if you hydrate enough? There are two important check-ups: drinking before thirst and pause. Can you lose weight by drinking water.
When we get a dry mouth on a busy working day, on the beach or during gardening, our brain gives a signal and we quickly drink a glass of water. Ai! Actually, it is already too late, because if you are thirsty, you are already 1 to 2 percent dehydrated. It may sound crazy and we often do not realize it, but it is a fact that we are always a bit dehydrated. It is precisely in the summer that the motto applies: no thirst, no drinking. This also reduces the risk of kidney stones and a urinary tract infection.
Is the color of your urine dark? Then your body will retain water, so that dehydration lurks. So you drink too little. A light color is better.
Most holidaymakers take into account that taps from the tap can be better exchanged by bottles of water. Use the water from bottles not only to drink, but also to brush teeth, vegetables and fruit to wash and to rinse cooking utensils. Please note that many local restaurants do work with tap water. So are you very sensitive or do you have to be extra careful for medical reasons? Skip raw vegetables in a restaurant when in doubt. A classic: a drink on a terrace without ice cubes is a better treat than with the cold (made of tap water) blocks.
Water, an essential nutrient. The endless refilling of your plastic water bottle is less sensible. Not because the bottle is toxic, but because in the course of time bacteria simply form inside the bottle. Make use of a sustainable water bottle that can be cleaned in the dishwasher or in a soapy water. Also saves a lot of waste.
