Water, water!

My good friend Jennifer Bradshaw has kindly done this video for me to share more information with you about the benefits of water. Are you getting the impression that I think it’s important?! Jennifer is a Platinum Director at Xyngular Corporation who are one of the fastest growing direct sales nutritional companies in the industry,and she certainly has a great knowledge on all things health and nutrition. Check out her other videos on YouTube @ getskinnywithjenny.
Hydration is tremendously important for overall health.Soft drinks have absolutely ZERO nutritional content; it’s like pouring a punch of sugar and syrup into your cup. Every system in your body depends on water. Water carries nutrients to cells and flushes toxins from all vital organs.

10 glasses per day is optimal, how many have you been getting lately?



#1Lack of water can lead to dehydration. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired. A healthy adult living in a temperate climate needs about 64 to 72 ounces of water each day.So around 10 glasses per day is optimal.


#2 Throughout the day have water constantly available. Keep a water bottle on your desk so you can top up your glass throughout the day and carry a bottle of water with you when you are on the go.


#3 Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables. They have a high water content and will contribute to your daily water intake.


#4 When you are dehydrated your attention and concentration can decrease by 13% and short term memory by 7%. Drinking 6-8 glasses a day helps to improve your concentration.


#5 Don’t wait until you’re thirsty·  Drink water even when you don’t feel thirsty; by the time you feel thirsty your body has lost between 2 and 5 cups of water!


#6 A handy way to check if you are drinking enough water; pinch the back of your hand whilst resting it on a flat surface. When you release the pinch, the skin should snap back into place. If it is slow in doing this, you are probably dehydrated.


#7 Drinking water before any physical activity will help keep your heart rate and body temperature lower.


#8 Drinking your RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) will help to keep your skin looking younger and more vibrant.


#9 Water can help with dieting. Drinking water often curbs the appetite and it is calorie free.


#10 If like me you enjoy drinking coffee or tea have some water at the same time. Caffeine is a diuretic and can lead to dehydration and reduce your stimulus to drink. As a guide caffeinated drinks should not count as part of your daily fluid intake requirement. Drinking a glass of water with your tea or coffee will help to readdress the balance.
