A surprising discovery was made in 2003. Stalking away from the sea, octopus with tentacles unusual was observed in 20 meters long. It is estimated that only a very small percentage of the planet has been explored, and most of it is water! We keep hearing about the "secrets" deep - the extraordinary life, the sea showed us, but we forget the magic of his own body. Water is important for the health and nutrition. A colleague recently asked me: "How much water should I take?"
About 70% of the earth's surface is water (less than one percent of this water for human consumption are suitable). About 75% of the human body is water. Coincidence? Peut-être. In the measurement of body fat, fat is as fat and the amount of mass that is called "lean body mass. "Many people confuse for muscle mass - in fact, most of which lean mass is water and bone tissue - typically less than 1:8 of muscle mass is a reality!
In the human body, lubricates joints, and Waters. It helps muscle tone. The water keeps the skin soft. Water regulates body temperature, filter, impurities and keeps the brain works. Water carries nutrients and cells. While the human body can not store energy in the form of glycogen, fat and tissues that can not "save" water - the body uses its own water and bring a steady supply of fresh water function. Water is in the movement of nutrients into and out of a cell, an action such as the "ion pump known essential. Once caught trying in the wrong balance of sodium and potassium, or not drinking enough water, your body to increase hormone and" hold " while the water-filtering kidneys. Ironically, one of the best ways to keep stopping water, drink more water!
Although humans can survive without food for several weeks (documented cases have a length of up to two months shown) can survive a few days without water. Thirst is a sign that your body needs to be rehydrated, but if they are thirsty, it is too late. Only a fraction of a percentage drop of water your body can cause a significant slowdown in performance. Even mild dehydration can be critical. During the sports season in recent years, several deaths due to dehydration.
Contrary to popular belief, "rattle" a gallon of water is not the body the water it needs. When absorbing too much water that your system is suddenly floods your body will spend the bulk of the bubble, and only a small amount. Weight in the stomach is a signal to begin the process of assimilation, and a variety of organic chemicals in the stomach and change the pH balance. This can cause indigestion and abdominal pain. The best way to make drinking water continuously throughout the day. You should also eat lots of fruits and vegetables - most of the products they consume are filled with water, the body can process this water very effectively.
So - how much water? There are millions of equations and theories. I have heard of the drink "eight cups of coffee a day is one that is better than nothing, but the way all adults, with so much variety in size, shape, metabolism, exercise, etc., requires the exact same amount of Water? Then there are complex equation to estimate the basal metabolic rate and energy consumption. I had that one too - they want to start a computer program every day to get to their water needs? "I like to drink like a fish and then I'm done. Just kidding.
What I found there are two ways of calculating the absorption of water, that both work incredibly well. The first is a little too vague for some people to follow, but very effective - it is the nutritionist recommended Brink. They say that there is enough drinking water for two or three holes completely clear day. If you are not yet so clear, urine, then either you do not drink enough water, not eat well or have some kind of infection or other illness.
On the one hand is normal healthy adults, two or three clear urination, a "rule". Otherwise, you can then raise the consumption of water until it happens.
If this is too general or explicit, which also led to your weight and divide it into two parts. This is a "base" amount of ounces to drink every day. For each cup of water to drink, you drink a cup of that water. For each group of exercises that you drink a cup before and after, and an additional cup for every hour that you exercised (round up!). That is all. Take myself as an example.
If I weigh 200 pounds, 200 / 2 = 100 ounces of water or about 12 cups.
To say that even on the treadmill for 30 minutes running. A cup of coffee in a cup for the year and a cut after three cups total. 12 + 3 = 15 cups.
I drank two cups of coffee, he must also two additional cups of water. 15 + 2 = 17.
That's it - the water needs of today for me is 17 cups! And I have no problem with this - I have an extra large glass, which is about 64 ounces. I fill them and keep them full all day. It took me time and again. Probably by drinking one to two Gallonen today because I love my coffee and my exercise.
The type of drinking water is the subject of much debate. I prefer to tap water by the potential for harmful substances in the raw filtered tap water - although many health gurus recommend tap water due to the fact that they provide many vitamins and minerals. Note that, unfiltered if you drink too much water, you can increase your chances of kidney stones, if they filter a lot of foreign materials that your body. When you filter a water before it is turned off exactly what your body can filter - the kidneys - are addressed. Distilled water is also an option.
Now go and drink water!
