Everyone knows that drinking adequate fresh water each day is important to maximize health and prevent dehydration. But not everyone realizes that drinking strategies - how one drinks their daily water – can substantially affect the water’s absorption, hydration and health benefit. Fresh water researcher Sharon Kleyne, host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show, has discovered the best drinking water “tips” to make sure one’s daily fresh water is fully absorbed.
Kleyne will discuss strategies to optimize the benefits of daily fresh water intake on her broadcast of May 4, 2015. For a podcast, go to http://www.SharonKleyneHour.com.
The syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show, hosted by fresh water advocate Sharon Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, which was founded by Kleyne and specializes in fresh water, atmosphere and dehydration. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry eyes.
Drinking sufficient water each day and taking steps to maximize the body’s absorption of that water, according to Kleyne, is becoming a major health issue. With warming temperatures and increasing drought, dehydration or loss of body water, is a growing health threat. Kleyne believes that dehydration as an underlying cause of a many – if not all – diseases and health problems. Dehydration upsets nearly every body function because every body function depends on water.
While most doctors recommend eight glasses, or 64 ounces a day, Kleyne regards this as the absolute minimum. She suggests ten glasses or 80 ounces a day, noting that everyone’s daily water needs differ.
Some experts recommend one ounce of water per day for every two pounds of body weight. Kleyne agrees with this for individuals who weigh under 100 pounds. A 50 pound child does not require 80 ounces a day – 25 or 30 ounces is sufficient.
There are differing medical opinions on whether liquids containing water can be counted towards the daily drinking water requirement. Kleyne has concluded that 100% of a person’s daily water consumption should be in the form of pure water. “Remember,” says Kleyne, “the human body is 70% water and every one of the body’s 50 trillion cells requires pure fresh water to survive – why force the body to extract the water?.”
Other liquids and foods with a high water content, Kleyne has discovered, can be counted as a supplement to ones daily water intake but would not count towards meeting the daily requirement. Many of these foods also offer a substantial nutritional benefit.
As a rule, the heavier and more opaque the liquid, the less the health benefit there is in the drinking water content. Apple juice for example, is superior to tomato juice, as far as water absorption, even though tomato juice is more nutritious. By the same reasoning, pure water is best to drink compared to vitamin fortified water or heavy mineral water.
A twist of lime or lemon is fine, says Kleyne, noting that a small amount of citric acid will slightly lower the water’s pH.
Coffee, alcohol and carbonated beverages should be consumed in moderation or avoided because they are dehydrating and may actually cause the body to lose water. Tea, however, is usually extremely diluted and offers an outstanding – and very relaxing – water supplement.
The best drinking water for absorption, retention and hydration is obtained when the water is consumed at room temperature or slightly warmer. Ice water is likely to quickly pass through the body but can help cool an overheated body in summer.
At least 32 ounces of a person’s daily fresh water should be consumed all at once. Kleyne recommends two full glasses of water, or 16 ounces, upon first getting up and another two full glasses in the afternoon. Kleyne compares the sipping of water to watering a garden a teaspoonful at a time.
Pouring the water into a glass before drinking increases oxygen content, taste and benefit.
If the body is dehydrated due to illness, strenuous exercise or sun exposure, water consumption should be increased accordingly.
