Benefits of water

Benefits of optimal water consumption for

human health

The human brain

The human brain contains 90% water, as well as neurotransmitters without which information could not be transmitted to the organs. That's why when we don't drink enough water, the feeling of thirst disappears. Due to dehydration, the message to drink water is not properly transmitted. Thirst is no longer perceived, but other undesirable phenomena occur, e.g. muscle pain, fatigue, dizziness, feeling hungry. The kidneys are the first to be affected, then the skin, and the power of concentration decreases.

The mode of communication between the cells of the body is bio-laser. There is water inside the cell and water outside the cell. The exchange between them purifies the cell and helps it function properly. But when the cell membrane is no longer well hydrated, the body triggers an emergency mechanism, and the cell will be overdressed ina protective film of cholesterol to prevent drying out. In this way our body protects itself from dehydration.

The role of water in the body

Studies have shown that in 90% of cases, cholesterol drops within 21 days of drinking the right water. This means that in the same percentage it increases as a result of dehydration. The benefits of drinking water are also seen in cartilage and bones. When cartilage loses water it starts to hurt. Similarly, many bone pains and slipped lumbar disc syndrome are also caused by dehydration. Blood vessel problems are also a lack of good hydration.

In the body, every cell, every component fights to survive, which keeps the whole body alive. Blood is no exception to this principle, which is why it is extremely important to drink water half an hour before a meal. In this way the blood will stop drawing water from the vital organs to carry out the digestion process.

Headaches and constant hunger are signs of dehydration. A glass of not very cold water (10 degrees below body temperature) drunk slowly when you have a headache can be the best remedy. In most cases the headache passes at 10-15 minutes after I finished drinking the water. We can do the same when we are hungry. The desire to eat is greatly reduced and we will feel in good shape.

To appreciate the role of water in maintaining the health of the body and beyond, it is important to understand that the surrounding world and the human body are actually made up of crystalline substances. The human body is crystalline in structure. And the most predominant element in the body is water, which is nothing more than a liquid crystal, just like blood. This is why it is important to drink spring water. Water from unsafe sources or from the tap carries not only the chemical load but also the information of all the toxic elements with which it is impure.

Medicinal plants

Cold maceration of beneficial herbs is a favourable alternative. It can give us a whole-body well-being and will be loaded with the specific qualities of each individual herb. For example, we can routinely use macerates of basil leaves, mint, sage, rosemary, chamomile, acacia, elderberry, marigold, mousetail, etc.

We can also get the water we need every day from fruit, vegetables or natural juices. We cannot impose a limit of 2 litres a day because some people feel the need to consume more than 2 litres and others less. Water needs vary depending on several factors, activity, body weight, age.

Practical recommendations

The way to find out how much fluid our body needs to function normally is to do a simple calculation: divide our body weight by 30. This will give us exactly how much water, in litres, we need to consume in 24 hours.

The first glass of water is drunk in the morning, as soon as we wake up. Water literally washes out the digestive system and helps the body eliminate toxins. This will make our stomach more ready for the first meal of the day, and it will process food faster and more efficiently. In addition, it brings a feeling of satiety if we want to reduce our portion sizes.

 Another aspect that is good to consider is that for every glass of juice or other sugar-based drinks (including alcohol) consumed, it is necessary to drink an equal amount of water on the same day. Sugar and caffeine absorb water from the body and cause dehydration.

Juices or sugary drinks do not quench thirst. On the contrary, they make us thirstier and we will be more dehydrated than before we consumed the drink. This gives us a better understanding of the disastrous effects of coffee or caffeinated juices consumed in the morning on an empty stomach. Instead of helping to energise us, they tend to ruin our whole day from the start.

Therefore, the optimal consumption of pure spring water or the optimal use of cold macerates from beneficial herbs can bring us multiple health benefits.
