Water is a compound that we take for granted, but her importance for our body and health is of utmost importance. As you all probably know, human body can starve for 40 days, but without water, it can’t last more than a week.
Insufficient water intake gradually changes the physiology of the body and leads to a number of chronic degenerative changes in tissues and organs. Believe it or not, even such diseases such as stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, cholesterol, arthritis, allergies and asthma can appear as a consequence of constant dehydration.
The modern man lives under the illusion that he could not dehydrate because the water is always at hand – just turn on the tap. However, neglecting of clean water and its so-called replacement with “fluids” as coffee, alcohol and various juices, inevitably leads to dehydration, because these drinks can not replace the clean water. Unfortunately, continuous consumption of these “fluids” eventually leads to the loss of sense of thirst, and replacement of thirst with hunger – basically we eat more instead to drink more and this is detrimental to the body.
To avoid these troubles, it is necessary to establish a “discipline” – drink 2 liters or 8 glasses of water a day, even if you don’t think are not thirsty.
What kind of water should we drink?
Of course, pure spring water would be the best choice. Unfortunately, in modern life it is not so easy. Bottled water, even if it comes from the purest sources, has artificial flavor, which comes from the package itself. Therefore, we recommend to use tap water, but filtered or structured in such a way that it makes it healthier. One of the ways of structuring is freezing and thawing it. Another way which might be more suited to the mentality of modern man, is to use polarizers, a device which is simply placed on the tap and structures the water in the same way as in the process of freezing and thawing.
