Drink Water Solutions

Temperatures are rising with summer trudging ahead. Now more then ever is an opportune time to assess your daily water consumption habits. Are you drinking enough water every day? The benefits of staying properly hydrated are endless.

Reaching your daily goal can easily be achieved with a little planning and there are convenient drinking water solutions that can be installed right in your home for easy access to purified water all day long.

What are the Benefits of Drinking Enough Water?

Keeping your body hydrated is one of the easiest, most important things we can do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Consuming the proper amount of water keeps every system in the human body functioning properly. Below are just a few reasons you should make it a point to drink enough water.

  1. Helps to Avoid Dehydration: If you have ever been outside on a hot summer day for an extended period of time and felt the incredible need to drink something, that is your brain initiating the “thirst” mechanism to the rest of your body. This could signal the start of dehydration. Dehydration occurs when your system loses more fluids than it takes in. To fend off dehydration, make sure you are taking in enough water, especially during rigorous activities such as working out or playing a sport.
  2. Aids in Bowel Movements: Believe it or not, constipation can also be due to a lack of water intake. Without water, the digestive system resorts to pulling water from the stool which ultimately leads to constipation.
  3. Brings Nutrients Through Your Body: The nutrients we get from food are broken down and dissolved in water. Water carries these nutrients and oxygen to our cells, keeping them alive and healthy.
  4.  Keeps you Looking Healthy: We know water is great for overall health, but did you know drinking enough can keep you looking younger and healthier? Your skin cells are made up of water so staying hydrated can keep your skin from drying up and also help to reduce wrinkles. Your skins elasticity depends on water circulating throughout your body, so drink up!

Tips and Tricks to Help You Reach Your Goal

We know drinking enough water is crucial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. But what can we do to make sure we are taking in enough water?

-Take advantage of technology and try using a fitness tracker or an app to track your progress. This is an easy way to keep track of how many glasses of water you have consumed in a day, which makes reaching your goal even easier.

-Bring a gallon jug or water bottle with you for the day. You may find it silly to lug around a large container of water at first, but this is a super simple way to reach your daily goal. Just fill it up in the morning with some ice and you are good to go!

-Another simple solution is to remember to drink 2 glasses of water at every meal. When you sit down to have lunch or dinner with the family you will more than likely have some sort of beverage with your meal. Why not make that beverage water?

-Try drinking a cup of herbal tea before bedtime to help you unwind from the busy day. Not only is it relaxing but it is also a great way to increase your fluid intake before bed.

These are just a few easy solutions to help you reach your daily water goal. But what if your water quality at home is questionable at best? It’s really hard to drink enough water if you don’t like the taste of it. Luckily, WaterCare® has a full line of drinking water solutions for you to choose from.

Purified Water Right from the Tap

If the water circulating through your home is not tasty due to lack of quality, you may consider installing a Reverse Osmosis drinking water solution. Reverse osmosis (RO) is in a lot of ways the purest form of drinking water available. Reverse osmosis is a multi-stage water treatment process that pushes water molecules in through a semi-permeable membrane. The water then moves from one side of the RO to the other, leaving behind all the contaminants and impurities that are the cause of taste and odor problems. What is left over is purified drinking water.

What makes these RO drinking water solutions so convenient is that they can be installed right under your kitchen sink. This allows you to have pure, fresh drinking water long-term right from the tap. The WaterCare UltroWater® RO drinking water system is a great option if you are looking for an easy way to increase your daily water consumption at home. The UltroWater RO system is NSF/ANSI Standard 58 certified so it is proven to reduce the harshest contaminants like arsenic, lead and copper.
