Drink Up! Water for health and beauty.

July 09, 2011

Drink eight glasses of water a day. You’ve heard this before, but there is more to the story. • Models optimize the benefits of water by drinking ice water. Ice water revs up your metabolism to maintain a normal body temperature, using additional calories in the process. Drink eight 12-oz glasses of ice water per day and your body will burn an additional 200 calories. That said, too much ice water stresses the immune system, so sip (as opposed to gulping) ice water. Drink water that is closer to room temperature for high volume intake. • Drink consistently throughout the day. Thirst indicates dehydration, the condition you are trying to avoid. Steady hydration prevents water intoxication, an unsafe alteration of the normal balance of electrolytes due to over-consumption of water. Gatorade was invented to replenish electrolytes lost in sweat during vigorous activity. • Add lemons to your water. Lemon stimulates the digestive system and promotes liver function for elimination of waste products and toxins. Many people forget that healthy liver metabolism results in healthy skin. • Water, especially water with lemon, suppresses food cravings. • It is a myth that drinking too much water will cause bloating in an otherwise healthy individual. Water retention is more likely to occur when intake of fluids is low. • While tap water is just fine, water obtained from other sources is equally useful, but choose wisely. Green tea has a host of health benefits in addition to providing fluid, but obviously, sugary drinks are not a wholesome substitute.
