We know that water is essential to good health… but specifically, why do we need to drink so much in a day? What does water do for our bodies? Is reverse osmosis water that much better for drinking compared to tap water? Below, Artesian Bottleless Water & Air Purification explains the health benefits of water.
The Health Benefits of Water
Keeps you refreshed and properly hydrated
According to Medical News Today, there is no universally agreed upon amount of water we should be drinking each day. However, water is essential for the kidneys and other bodily functions, and when we are dehydrated, our skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling. Water also delivers nutrients and oxygen throughout our bodies—it’s amazing how much water can do for us.
Water may not be as “fun” as soda or juice, but it does help with weight loss. Water can take the place of sugary beverages, and drinking a full glass before eating a meal can trick the stomach into thinking it’s full sooner. If we don’t drink enough water, our bodies pull hydration from the foods we eat, which are sometimes unhealthy. Drinking water allows our bodies to remain hydrated without adding extra calories that stick around longer.
Dehydration leads to fatigue because it impacts the flow of oxygen to the brain. The more water you drink during your workday, the more productive and alert you (and your employees) will be. It’s the best of both words at that point!
Helps immune system
While blood, which happens to be 92% water, transports the nutrients we get from food to other places in our bodies, water is what allows the nutrients to pass through capillaries within intestinal walls. Drinking more water can also help prevent toxins from building up and having a negative impact on your immune system, especially during peak flu season, November through March.
Why say yes to a reverse osmosis system?
Many places in the world struggle to provide their residents with clean water. Even cities in the United States, such as Flint, Michigan and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, have water crises in their neighborhoods. While a reverse osmosis (RO) system cannot solve entire neighborhoods’ contaminated water issues, it can provide your business with clean water for your employees and customers who walk in the door.
