Our body is 60% water. It makes up a pretty big part of us! So let’s make sure that you are getting the water YOU need to perform at 110% through your daily life..
Water transports nutrients throughout the body, aids in digestion, provides fluid for our joints, regulates temperature, can help reduce appetite, assists in body detoxification, helps prevent low blood pressure, promotes healthy bowel movements, improves mental concentration and relieves fatigue. Wow! That’s an impressive list for the humble water droplet!
You see, water is your most important nutrient.
Weight loss is a natural by-product of a hydrated body. Some studies have shown that by drinking water before meals, you lose more weight than those who do not drink water.
Your metabolism is also boosted when fully hydrated too. This means just by keeping your body in a state of good hydration, you burn off excess energy more efficiently. This keeps you slimmer, less bloated, and looking more youthful!
Hydration is extra important during the process of time restricted fasting (TRF) - especially your 24 hour fast days. In this time you will be detoxing and moving a lot of much needed processes through the body for cleaning and repair.
Hydration also helps us maintain a healthy pH balance. The first line of defense against disease is a proper pH balance. Disease can only grow in an acidic body, which makes that condition favorable for the growth of bacteria, yeast, fungus, mold, viruses, and any other unwanted organisms.
In summary, water is everything when it comes to our personal health. So, our Hydration Challenge may be the most important one yet! See this article for more information on the challenge.
