Drink enough water from your water dispenser, Grafton, why does that have to be.

Why is drinking so important?

In order to maintain a good balance between fluid intake and fluid loss, it is important to regularly provide the body with fluid and drink well. Tips to drink more water. But often that is not so easy, because it depends not only on how much you drink but also what you drink. Chemical processes take place continuously in the human body, often unnoticed, sometimes also clearly noticeable. The water balance in our body varies constantly from the absorption, formation and separation of moisture. During the day, the body loses two to three litres of fluid through secretion and in the form of sweat through the skin. During sports, in heat and diseases such as diarrhea or diabetes mellitus even more. This moisture loss must be compensated again to keep the moisture balance in the body constant. With a very high loss of moisture, the body reminds us by giving thirst signals.

Moisture is essential for a good metabolism

Sufficient moisture, for example, is important for metabolism. A large part of the water that people absorb every day is responsible for the transport of nutrients to the cells and for the transport and separation of waste products and salts. Many wastes can only be excreted when they are dissolved in water at a certain concentration. Of course, that only goes if there is sufficient fluid in the body.

Moisture also regulates our body temperature

In addition, fluid in the body is an important task to regulate body temperature. For example, sweating is an unpleasantness, but it helps to keep the body temperature constant at 37 ° C, no matter how cold or hot it is outside our body. And that constant temperature needs the human body to function smoothly. If the body a lacks fluid, performance is reduced and people feel tired and listless. It is not uncommon for the body to become dehydrated with headaches.

Thirst quenchers and moisture suppliers

Drinking water is the best way to keep your moisture balance up to date. The best thirst quenchers are tap water, mineral water and unsweetened fruit or herbal teas. Optionally, diluted fruit and vegetable juice can also be used with water. Cola and other sugary soft drinks are not really suitable as a thirst quencher. They belong to the so-called fat makers because they contain a lot of calories. Unthinned fruit juices also belong to this. Their high sugar content makes them true calorie bombs.

Solid foods as moisture suppliers

In addition to beverages, solid food is also among the moisture suppliers: fruit, vegetables, potatoes or fish, for example, have a moisture content of more than 75%. Poultry, meat products and some cheeses (eg Camembert) consist of 50 to 75% water. Even bread, eggs and pastries come to a water content of at least 25 to 50%. In total, solid foods supply the body with about one litre of water daily. A small contribution to fluid management also supplies the body itself: when it breaks down nutrients it produces about 300 ml. of oxidation moisture. After deduction of all these sources of moisture, there is, therefore, one and a half to two litres of fluid that needs to be replenished from outside, depending on the digested foods and body size.

Moisture and body weight

The amount of moisture required can also be calculated on the basis of body weight. Can you lose weight by drinking water? As a rule of thumb: per day you need to absorb about 30 to 40 millilitres of fluid per kilogram of body weight. A person weighing 60 kg should therefore drink at least 1.8 litres of water per day. Those who do a lot of sports or follow a diet or get a steady diet should drink a lot more. The elderly and children also need more fluid.

Thirst is not a reliable signal

That there is a need for moisture, the body usually signals with a thirst. But that feeling of thirst is not always reliable. In principle, one should not only drink when one is thirsty. Because the feeling of thirst only occurs when the body has already lost a lot of fluid. That is why it is important to drink a lot with every meal and in between, even if you do not feel thirsty. This is especially true in warm weather and when you are physically active. In sports practice, it is important to bring water management up to standard beforehand.

How can you drink enough?

Many people find it difficult to drink enough during the day. Actually, I should drink more water. The following tips can help you to maintain your water balance.

  • Drink at least 1/2 to 2 litres of fluid evenly throughout the day from your water dispenser Grafton. More at high temperatures and during physical exertion;
  • Bring variety to the daily choice of drinks. Suitable are tap water, mineral water, unsweetened fruit and herbal teas, but also diluted fruit and vegetable juices;

  • In the morning, drink a glass of water from your water dispenser Grafton immediately after you get up;

  • Avoid sugarily and therefore high-calorie beverages or use them in moderation. This includes, for example, energy drinks, cola and soft drinks, as well as undiluted fruit juices;
  • For a long time, people thought that coffee dried out or seized the body, but nowadays people see it differently. Coffee can make a positive contribution to the moisture balance. Coffee has a diuretic effect which, however, decreases with regular use. Due to its stimulating effect, however, coffee should not be consumed as a thirst quencher. Up to four cups a day is considered acceptable;
  • If you drink a glass of wine, drink a glass of water there;
  • If you drink alcoholic beverages on occasion, it makes sense to drink 0.3 litres of water with each drink.

How much water do you drink per day?

On a day you lose 2.5 litres of moisture on average. You lose this because of your urine, breathing and sweat. You lose even more in warm weather and physical exertion (eg exercise). It is very important for the body and soul to keep your fluid balance up to scratch.

Prestige Water advises adults to drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water per day. Healthline also maintains that number with a recommendation of approximately 2 litres. Cold or hot drinks in warm weather? Water alternated with coffee and tea (without sugar) is the healthiest option. You also get moisture from food, about 1 litre per day.

How much water in hot weather and/or sports

Hot temperature or are you going to exercise? Drink a little more to supplement your deficits. Keep a minimum of approximately 2 litres of water in warm weather and sporting efforts. Lemon water is healthy and delicious. This is of course partly dependent on the intensity of the temperature and effort. If you exercise for more than an hour or in the strong heat, a sports drink with electrolytes may be worth the effort. Fruit water.

Listen to your body

Healthline emphasizes how important it is to listen to the body. In the first place because everybody is different. For example, one person needs more water than the other. Secondly, the body itself also clearly states what it needs, for example through our thirst mechanism.

The thirst mechanism in our brains automatically indicates when we should drink. For many people, the advice is therefore sufficient: "Are you thirsty? Drink! Are you not thirsty? Do not drink. A bottle of water at hand is of course always handy, especially in the summer when you need a little more moisture.

Too much water is not good

A bottle of water at hand is very handy, but you do not need to "drink" all day You can forget the myths that you have to sit and suck at a bottle all day long. Too much water is not good for you. A good indicator is your own body again. If your urine looks a bit like lemonade (light yellow coloured), then you're probably in the right place. Colourless urine usually means that you have too much fluid in your body. The dark colour indicates a lack of water.

* Nutrition, supplements, medicines and other factors can also influence the colour of your urine.)
Coffee, alcohol, fruit juice and soft drinks
Coffee does not expel moisture and you can "just" drink it

There are a lot of myths and untruths about these drinks. But what is the actual influence of coffee, alcohol and sugary drinks on our moisture balance? Prestige Water provides a fairly clear picture:
  • Coffee does not dry out your body, contrary to what many people think (1, 2) So you can safely take this.
  • Alcohol does dissipate moisture. Still in the mood for beer or wine? For each alcoholic drink, drink a glass of water from your water dispenser Grafton, as a kind of well-off
  • You can better avoid fruit juice and soft drinks because of the sugars (and calories).

Water regulates body temperature

Water helps your internal body temperature adapt to the outside temperature. When you're overheated, your body knows it needs to sweat to cool you down, explains Peter. However, this also increases the fluid requirement.

Water improves the skin

The skin is constantly exposed to toxins. Water helps flush these toxins out of your system. If you don't drink enough water, your skin can overcompensate and get greasy to try to flush out the pollutants on its own, explains Peter.
