Despite all of the natural benefits of drinking water, the majority of people still do not properly hydrate themselves. If you are used to drinking other things, such as sodas, coffee, or juice, it can be really difficult to get in the habit of drinking the right amount of water, especially when tap water tastes so bad. Having a water purification system installed in your home or office may be the perfect way to encourage yourself to drink more water! The advantages of staying well hydrated by drinking clean, pure water are innumerable. Call Mirex AquaPure Solutions to learn more about how a water purification system can not only improve the quality of your drinking water, but also improve your overall health.
Why Do We Need to Stay Hydrated?
The body’s need for water is relentless. Between two and three quarts of water per day are used by the body for such important functions as regulating body temperature, nutrient metabolism, cushioning joints, organs and tissues. Therefore you do not need to be engaged in high amounts of physical activity to feel the need to stay hydrated; you need to stay hydrated so that your body performs basic functions efficiently.
Despite the importance of water, it is often the overlooked nutrient. According to a survey conducted by Boston College, at least two thirds of Americans pull up a quart short on a daily basis.
How Much Water Should I Drink Per Day?
The recommended amount of water is 8 cups per day and 1-3 cups/hour activity. The amount of water you should drink during a physical activity depends on the intensity.
For most of us, that seems like quite a bit. That is probably because we are used to drinking other liquids – such as coffee, sodas, and alcoholic beverages – that satiate our thirst. Replacing those drinks with water will improve your overall health.
What Are The Health Benefits of Drinking More Water?
If you are living a dehydrated lifestyle, increasing your water intake can help you in the following ways:
- Gives you more energy;
- It will lessen the urge for empty calories;
- It keeps your skin clear;
- Helps you maintain normal body functions;
- Helps you think more clearly;
- Improves bowel functions.
What Are The Benefits of a Water Purification System?
Your alternatives to a water purification system are tap water and bottled water. Tap water — especially in Houston — is filled with both contaminates and flouride. Not only does the water have an unpleasant taste, but it fills your body with unwanted particles.
On the other hand, water bottles produce copious amounts of trash. How many times have you gotten into a car and seen empty and half-filled water bottles all over the place? Not to mention that all of that is thrown into a landfill somewhere and left to contaminate another water source.
Mirex offers water purification systems that hook up directly to your water source, providing you with the purest drinking water at the touch of a button. Our water simply tastes better than tap or bottled water because it is cleaner and healthier for you.
