How often are we told how important water is to us, and how often do we tell ourselves that we really should drink more water.
Approximately 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated and this may well apply to a good half of the world’s population as well
In almost half of the dehydrated population the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger, even a mild case of dehydration will slow down your metabolism as much as 3%
In a Washington University study the simple drinking of one glass of water shut down the hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied.
A lack of water is the number one trigger of daytime fatigue
Research has shown that consuming 8 to 10 glasses of water could have a significant effect on reducing or easing back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers of these conditions
A 2% drop in hydration can trigger short term memory, difficulty with basic mathematics, and trouble with focusing on a computer screen or a printed page.
An innovative teacher at a well known Melbourne boys college has been comparing the effects of consuming plain water, versus water containing 20% Apple and Pear juice with her students, and all students have noticed a remarkable difference in their bodies ability to absorb the mixture of the water with 20% Apple and Pear juice added, and reported requiring less toilet trips than if they drink plain water.
