We are always being told to make sure we are drinking enough water but why is drinking water so important? There are so many benefits that come from drinking water – it increases your energy, improves your skin, promotes weight loss, helps fight infections and so much more!

So, how much water should we drink a day? We have all heard the universal, “one size fits all”, eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.  However, many experts have said this has changed. Ultimately, it depends on your size and weight, activity level and where you live. All three of these factors will affect how much water you body truly needs to stay properly hydrated.  Nessler says, “In general, you should try to drink between half an ounce and ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day”.  So, example – if you weigh 140 pounds, you would aim to drink between 70 and 140 ounce of water each day. Obviously if you are doing a lot of physical activity (which we recommend) or if you are out in the heat of the sun a lot, then make sure to increase your water intake.

Sometimes when we are exercising in colder temperatures, we don’t sweat as much, if we sweat at all. We tend to think this means that we didn’t use or lose any water, and we don’t need to rehydrate. The truth is that your muscles and the rest of your body uses water internally during heightened physical activity. So even if you didn’t sweat much, make sure to drink some water anyway. Many athletes will increase their water intake up to 24-48 hours before strenuous activity in order to be more hydrated going in.

But today we want our main fluid focus to be on its ability to cleanse the body. Drinking water each day helps your body flush out impurities and rids itself of unwanted toxins. If you remember from last week’s post, we talked about how Aloe Arborescens detoxifies the body. It has the ability to help rid the body of any built-up waste that body cannot remove itself. But even one of the best detox solutions out there, the Aloe Arborescens Supreme Immune Health Formula, is more effective with drinking the right amounts of water.

Think of the benefits you could gain by increasing your water intake and adding Aloe Arborescens to your daily routine! The Aloe working to remove and cleanse the body of impurities, allowing the water to flush out more toxins than ever before! This combination can help you improve your overall health without feeling like you have to dramatically change your lifestyle.

So what are you waiting for? Fill up a tall glass of water, grab your favorite detoxifier, and let’s start cleaning our your body today!
