Your body is your house, the physical vessel in which you live all of your life. Would you rather that house be a mansion that provides you everything you need to live a full life or a shack that is falling down around you?
If you answered that you prefer a shack, then you can stop reading, get yourself a soda and a donut and enjoy the rest of your life.
If you prefer a mansion, then read on.
What Does Water Do in Your Body?
The house that you live in all of your life is the body that you were born in, and you can choose to treat it as a mansion or a shack. I think too many people treat it like a shack when they could make just a few better choices and turn it into a mansion. One of those choices is what you drink. Do you realize all of the things that water does in your body?
- Composes 75% of your brain
- Regulates your body temperature
- Makes up 83% of your blood, which carries nutrients to cells and removes waste.
- Composes 22% of your bones
- Cushions your joints
- Moistens the oxygen that you breathe
- Helps convert food to energy
- Protects and cushions your vital organs
- Helps your body absorb nutrients
- Makes up 75% of your muscles
If your body is a mansion, then you want to keep all of these systems functioning at their best, which means drinking enough water and the best quality water.
What is Quality Water?
Quality water is both clean and alkaline.
Clean water is obvious. You don’t want your water to bring in pollutants and make things worse in your body. Water needs to be clean so that it is free to carry nutrients in and waste products out. Essentially, if you don’t filter the water you drink, then your body will. You don’t want that.
Alkaline water may be a little less obvious. It’s pretty simple though. Your body needs to stay slightly alkaline to stay healthy. Acidic water adds to your body’s acidity while alkaline water helps to keep you slightly alkaline.
I use a Nikken water filter, the PiMag Waterfall, to make my water clean and alkaline. Whether you use a Nikken water filter or one from another company, make sure that it is certified to clean your water and makes the water alkaline.
