Every single day your kidneys filter between 120 and 160 litres of fluid, thereby cleansing the body of impurities in the form of urine and recycling the majority of the water back into the bloodstream.
Not Drinking sufficient water every day can lead to Dehydration, which in turn will lead to a host of health problems such as Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs). UTIs can spread to the upper urinary tract, including the kidneys, causing kidney infections, kidney stones, chronic kidney disease and even kidney failure, which will require dialysis and can be fatal.
Dehydration means taking in more water than you are losing throughout the day via urination, sweating, and even just breathing, as the body cannot store water and it is vital that you maintain the fluid balance in your body for it to remain healthy and work optimally.
Dehydration will lead to an imbalance in the body’s electrolytes such as potassium, phosphate, and sodium, which help carry electrical signals between cells. Electrolyte levels in the body are kept stable by properly functioning kidneys.
Dehydration creates havoc (stress) at cellular level, and can also suppress your immune system, cause toxic build up, slow metabolism, and more:
Dehydration leads to headaches, allergies, dry flaky skin, increased acidity, decreased oxygen uptake by red blood cells, asthma, digestion problems, insomnia and sleep problems, constipation, heartburn, acid reflux, peptic ulcers, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, weight gain, diabetes, anxiety, depression, unexplained pains, low back pain, morning sickness, water retention, unlubricated and sore joints, irritableness, anger, short attention span, impatience and even depression.
Drinking plenty of water will ensure that you remain fully hydrated and in good health, able to think clearly, and be physically active without any problems.
The best way to ensure that you and yours are getting sufficient clean, fresh, toxin-free drinking water is to invest in a water Cooler. Whether you choose to purchase a bottled water cooler (good for smaller businesses and homes) or a mains (POU) water cooler is your choice – just make sure that the water cooler company you deal with is a member of the British Water Cooler Association (BWCA), as this membership is your guarantee of strict adherence to the highest possible technology and hygiene standards.
