Water

Did you know that water regulates the Earth's temperature? It also regulates the temperature of the human body, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions joints, protects organs and tissues, and removes wastes. 75% of the human brain is water and 75% of a living tree is water. We know we need to drink it every day, even though sometimes it's hard to get in the recommended ounces daily. According to research, hydration affects the brain as well as the body. Light dehydration can change your mood or memory and can also increase anxiety. For some people, lack of water can trigger migraines and headaches. Water is powerful! What a force of nature and so beautiful. From lakes to oceans, streams and water falls, it fascinates me. Drinking water is vital to maintain your body temperature. During physical activities and hot environments, the body loses water through sweating. The sweat keeps the body cool, however, the temperature of the body will rise if water is not replenished, it is because the body loses electrolytes (minerals in the body) and plasma (carries nutrients to the different parts of the body) when dehydrated. Sweating is good for your body. A few benefits are boosting energy, maintaining a healthy weight, defending against diseases and health conditions, improving mood and promoting a good night's sleep. Although there are differing opinions on detoxification through sweat, a 2016 study in China indicated that the levels of most heavy metals were lower in those people who exercised regularly. (ask me for the study if interested.) Heavy metals were found in the sweat and urine with a higher concentration in the sweat, leading to the conclusion that, sweating is a potential method for the elimination of heavy metals in your body. I am diving deep into some interesting research studies on water and the health benefits of sweat. Stay tuned, but for now see my link below on a water filtration system. It may be something to consider one day for my own home and for Fenix. For now, I find hydration packets, like liquid IV a quick and easy way to hydrate and get in extra electrolytes. That said, stay hydrated and try to sweat some every day!! For more inquiries on the matter, https://justingabossi.com/ is a water expert-I am just getting my feet wet on the topic.
