Everyone has heard that you should drink at least eight glasses of water a day. Sounds easy right? Well, turns out it’s easier said than done. The human body is composed of about 60% water. Some research has been done to calculate that about 95% of Americans are dehydrated. When a person is dehydrated it can cause a slew of problems with your muscles and brain. Plain and simple, your body just doesn’t function quite the same without them. Lucky for you, Mother Beverage is made up of about 95% purified water. Not only are you drinking a serving of water, but you are also getting your daily serving of ACV. We keep our ingredients simple and organic, so you can feel good about what you are drinking. Trust us, your body will thank you. Just in case you’re not convinced, we’ve put together a few key points on exactly why staying hydrated is so important.
If you don’t stay hydrated your body will begin to shut down. One of the first signs of dehydration is a headache. Your brain tissue loses water causing your brain to shrink and pull away from the skull. Dehydration also causes your blood volume to drop, which reduces the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. If you have a headache more than likely you need to re-hydrate.
Help with weight loss
It has been proven that staying hydrated and drinking apple cider vinegar can help a person from overeating. Also, when you are dehydrated your cravings for sweets is at an all time high. When you are dehydrated your body has difficulty with glycogen production, causing your brain to tell you that you need sugar! As we all know, resisting sweets is already hard enough, so do yourself a favor and drink up.
Getting rid of waste
Our body has many functions to get rid of waste. We sift out waste through our kidneys, liver, bladder and bowel system. Staying hydrated aids in the process.
Clear up skin
I love dry dull skin… said no one ever. Staying hydrated helps to flush toxins out of your body, resulting in fewer clogged pores and healthier skin.
Inevitably we all get sick. Some more than others, but it happens to us all. The next time you are sick remember to drink lots and lots of water, as it leads to a faster recovery.
Bottom line, staying hydrated is essential for healthy living. Grab a Mother Beverage in place of one of your 8 glasses of water and drink your way to a healthier you!
