After a study performed in 2012 and finding out that only 15% of middle-school students are drinking enough water, I knew I had to be part of this campaign.

Water is the most important, and often most forgotten, nutrient. You can last for some time without food, but only days without water.

Water is important:

  • It is the solvent for important biochemical reactions, supplying nutrients and removing waste.
  • It is essential for maintaining blood circulation throughoutyour body and maintaining your blood pressure on a healthy level. When we are chronically dehydrated, our blood becomes thicker and more viscous.
  • It is essential for digestion. Our bodies produce an average of 7 liters of digestive juices daily. When we don’t drink enough water, our secretions are more limited and the digestive process is inhibited.
  • It maintains body temperature.

I like Nestlé® Pure Life® undergoes a 12-Step Quality Process that includes reverse osmosis and/or distillation. Select minerals are added for taste to ensure you get pure, refreshing water every time.

Some facts that were uncovered in the survey and healthy hydration study:

  • Kids who drink 4+ glasses of water per day are more likely to frequently exhibit healthy habits, such as
  • Getting their own water when thirsty,
  • Eating their fruits and vegetables at meal times without reminders
  • Requesting healthy food and beverage options for school lunches

The survey also uncovered some interesting insights specific to the hydration habits of Hispanic moms and kids including:

  • Water consumption is higher among both Hispanic moms and kids compared to non-Hispanic moms and kids.

Some important tips to consider to keeping hydrated:

  • Monitor fluid loss by checking the color of your urine. It should be pale yellow and not dark yellow, too smelly or cloudy.
  • Drink enough water to prevent thirst. Know that thirst is a sign of dehydration.
  • Begin exercise well-hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids within the hour before, during and after your exercise session.

People can often underestimate the importance of water intake. Start each day with a glass of water before you have coffee, tea or juice. It will help replace fluids lost overnight and get your hydration efforts off to a good start!

Enjoy!
