The Importance of Water Intake

valpurHow is your water intake? We often see patients who drink only 1-2 glasses of water a day. This is well below the amount necessary for your body to function properly. Water is one of the most important nutrients for the human body. Regular water consumption is good for our health and diet, and is essential for many functions of the body. It is important in helping with digestion; the absorption of food, the regulation of body temperature and blood circulation, and for the removal of toxins. Water also helps with the movement of joints, and helps protect tissues and organs in the body. It is also good to drink water for metabolic and weight loss purposes. Drinking water metabolizes stored fats, and helps maintain proper muscle tone. Most importantly, drinking water will prevent dehydration, which can have detrimental effects on the body. By drinking enough water, you keep a regular flow of fluids going in the body so that it can perform it’s daily functions easily, and effectively.

In order to determine how much water you should be drinking daily, calculate half your body weight in ounces per day. (A 160 pound person needs 80 ounces of water per day). The rule is the more you weigh, the more water you should be drinking. Also, it is important to drink more water if you are exercising. As you exercise, you lose water as you sweat; therefore it is very important to keep hydrated. Do you drink caffeine? The same applies; drink more water!

Keeping up with your daily water intake can be difficult for some due to a busy lifestyle. We recently came across a water bottle that fits any lifestyle-The Vapur® Anti-Bottle. The Vapur® Anti-Bottle stands when full and folds when empty – easily fitting into pockets, purses or packs.

The Vapur® Anti-Bottle™ is a foldable, reusable water bottle designed for convenient on-the-go use. Unlike traditional rigid bottles, the Anti-Bottle is flexible. It stands upright when full and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty – easily fitting into pockets, purses or packs. Fill it half full of water, stick it in the freezer overnight, fill it with water the next morning and you’ll have ice water for the day.

Affordable, safe and durable, the Vapur Anti-Bottle is designed to withstand everyday use and regular cleaning. It also comes with a carabiner, allowing you to attach your Anti-Bottle and take it anywhere. The writable area on the back of the bottle also allows it to be personalized.

You can find the Vapur Anti-Bottle at 3 Wishes on Park St in Alameda. Get yours today! Drinking water on a regular basis can boost your health and keep your body feeling great!
