As an avid water drinker, I always stress on the importance of staying hydrated. Yes, drinking 8 glasses a day is a good rule of thumb to know, but there is also a more accurate way of knowing as well. If your urine is a light yellow, or even clear color when you go to the bathroom, that’s how you know you’ve been drinking enough water throughout the day.
Water is nature’s medicine and every living thing needs it in order to survive. It’s important to drink water that is clean and that doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or toxins. Just because water is clear, doesn’t make it safe to drink. You can test your water at home with a kit like this one to see what’s really in your tap water. A lot of tap water is filled with harmful chemicals that the water has absorbed traveling through the water pipes. It may not make you feel sick instantly, but contaminated water can cause hormonal issues, inflammation in your body, and elevate your body’s pH.
Fun Fact: Our body’s are made of up to 60% water, and it only takes 2 days to replenish all of the water in our body.
Staying hydrated helps with:
Proper immune system function
Inhibits food cravings
Aids in detoxifying your body
Aids in digestion
+so much more
Two types of water I recommend drinking:
Spring water contain nourishing minerals that your body needs like magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium. It is also alkalizing, meaning it has a low pH level and is non-acidic. This inhibits inflammation in your body and keeps your joints, skin, and bones hydrated. Live spring water delivers oxygen to the celles, balances your body’s pH, fights bacteria and viruses, remineralizes your brain, and improves liver and hormone function (1).
Now imagine all of the benefits of spring water and water combined, times two! So what is molecular hydrogen water exactly? Hydrogen is extremely reactive and almost immediately bonds with another hydrogen atoms to form molecular hydrogen, or H2 gas. Due to its uniquely small size, mass, and neutral charge, H2 is able to more effectively penetrate not only cell membranes but also the blood-brain barrier and even the cell nucleus—where it's thought to protect DNA and enhance mitochondrial health (2). It’s also absorbed directly into one's bloodstream which heightens the healing properties of H2 water.
Hydrogen water is:
Rich in antioxidants and has been shown to prevent brain damage (3).
Suppresses inflammation in the body (4).
Reduces muscle fatigue and muscle degeneration (5).
Helps in weight loss and inhibits metabolic syndrome (6).
I was a bit skeptical at first when I heard about molecular hydrogen water, but after testing it out on myself and drinking it religiously for a few weeks, I really notice the positive effects. I have more energy when working out, sleep better, my skin is soft and clearer than before, and I really like how it tastes as well. I know, water doesn’t really taste like anything, but you have to experience it for yourself, the water is silky and easy to drink.
