Aquae Anima Vivens (Water Is Life)

Drinking water is good for us - we all know that but how many of us have this habit? If you want to learn more about water, you can read this interesting article.

There are some curious facts about water that you didn't suspect and will always make you want to have at least a glass or bottle of water around you.

Do You know That:

1. Drinking water increases our energy and eliminates fatigue

Because most of our brains are water, drinking water helps us think, focus, and be more alert! Changing your coffee with water will help you deal with tired eyes and have a much fresher look.

2. Drinking water helps to lose weight

Some various studies have found a link between drinking water and losing weight.
The secret behind this?

3. Water reduces food intake (if drunk before meals, by filling the stomach) and reduces hunger, as it is a natural means of suppressing appetite.

Besides, drinking water improves metabolism and contains zero calories!

4. Water removes toxins from your body

Drinking water allows us to get rid of toxins in our body by sweating and urinating, which reduces the risk of infections of the urinary tract and kidney stones.
Also, H2O maintains the body's water balance, regulates body temperature, and aids digestion.

I believe these exciting facts about the drinking water are interesting for you and if you like them, they should keep reading, because there are some more. Here they are :

5. Drinking water improves the structure of the skin

Water moisturizes our skin - keeping it fresh, soft, shiny, and smooth. Removes wrinkles and is the best remedy for premature aging!

6. Water boosts the immune system

It is proven by scientists that those people who drink more water are less likely to become ill. And who wouldn't want to be healthy most of the time? Drinking large amounts of water helps fight the flu, cancer, and other diseases such as heart attacks.

7. Water forms a large part of our muscles

To respond well to training, the muscles must work optimally, and this requires proper hydration. Many people are constantly dehydrated, and this makes their training difficult. Concentrate on drinking more water, and you will notice how flexible your body becomes.

8. Water is a natural remedy for headaches

Recent studies show that drinking water relieves and prevents problems such as headaches, migraines, and back pain, which are often caused by dehydration.

9. Drinking water lifts the mood

When our body feels good, we feel great and happy! What are you waiting for? It is so easy!

10. Drinking water saves money!

Water is free! Even if you choose filtered or distilled water, it is much cheaper than many high-sugar and harmful drinks.

These were 10 of some of the most interesting facts that I compiled about the drinking water around us but stay with me because there are still three more curious facts to come.

11. Water has a memory

Along with its endless useful properties, water is supposed to have memory. Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto has been experimenting with water exposed to music, spoken word, photographs, thoughts, and words written on paper and attached to a glass vessel for years.
During his scientific work, he has taken over 10,000 photographs, some of which have been published in his famous books "The Messages from Water" and "Water knows the answer."

12. The amount of water to be taken per day is individual.

There are many suggestions and recommendations regarding this fact.
Research recommendations are mostly about eight glasses of water a day, but the most important thing is to listen to your body.
For every kilogram of body weight, we should take somewhere between 30 and 40 ml of water.
If you weigh 50 kg, then you will need 1.5 - 2.0 l of fluid per day approximately while if your weight is around 70 kg, then, in this case, you will need 2.1 - 2.8 l of fluid per day (70 x 30 ml = 2100 ml; 70 x 40 ml = 2800 ml).

At the End

If you don't like the taste of pure water, you can always add a slice of lemon, squeeze a lime, add a few mint leaves, or a slice of cucumber to taste - or whatever will make you drink more water.
