We all know that fluids are important to the functionality of the body systems including the most important heart, brain and muscles. We require water in all of our cells, organs and tissues in order to regulate the temperature of our bodies’ morning, noon and night!
Throughout the day we lose water through core functions such as digestion, breathing and excretion. And most commonly for us -The SIXPAX family - through sweating!! This loss of water can be put back into the body from a large range of foods that contain water, as well as water itself and other beverages!
The most recent claims of the benefits of drinking water are:
- Increased energy
- Reduced fatigue
- Flushing out toxins
- Boosting the immune system
- Promoting weight loss
- Benefiting the appearance of skin
- Prevention of headaches
- Lubrication of joints
- Aiding the prevention and relief of constipation
- Beneficial to digestion
The recommended water consumption is 8 glasses eg 2 litres per day. Remember this includes hot water as well as herbal teas, fruit teas, smoothies, coconut milk and coconut water.
To maximise your hydration, we at SIXPAX suggest drinking water before, during and after your workouts. As well as investing in a water bottle to carry with you, to ensure that you drink throughout the day.
Stay happy, stay healthy, stay hydrated!
