How Drinking Spring Water Can Improve Your Health

How Drinking Spring Water Can Improve Your Health

Most of us appreciate that water is essential for all life on the planet. With the availability of bottled water, spring water and even tap water, drinking enough fluids should not be a problem for anyone in the first world. However, most people are still not drinking enough and could be in danger of dehydration.

Indications of Dehydration:

According to many health experts, adults should be drinking between two and three litres of water each day. Even this amount may not be enough to avoid dehydration in very hot weather. Unfortunately, many of us don’t even realise we are becoming dehydrated and may even eat a snack when our body tries to tell us we need water. Hunger pangs can actually be one of the most obvious signs that we are becoming dehydrated, since feeling thirsty is an indication that you are already dehydrated. If these signs are ignored, dehydration is likely to progress into some major symptoms that can indicate a problem.

Since water is needed for almost every function in the human body, symptoms of dehydration can vary greatly. These can range from digestive problems such as constipation or heartburn, through to higher cholesterol levels or weight gain. You may also experience urinary tract infections or an increased risk of developing autoimmune diseases.

Why Spring Water?

Unfortunately, the quantity of water you are drinking is not the only factor that can impact your health. The quality of your drinking water can also have a positive or detrimental effect on your body. Unfortunately, the use of chemicals in industry, fertilizers in agriculture and even household cleaning products has had an impact on the quality of tap water. While municipal water supplies are treated to eliminate many potentially harmful contaminants, the use of chlorine means that even “clean” tap water could be harming your health. Many contaminants associated with tap water have detrimental health effects that vary from gastrointestinal problems through to an increased risk of developing cancer. The best way to avoid these potentially damaging health effects is to drink good quality water.

Are You Drinking Enough?

Once you have sourced good quality drinking water, how do you know you are drinking enough? Unfortunately, there is no set rule. The old recommendation of eight glasses per day is not necessarily right for you. There are a number of factors that affect how much water you need to stay healthy and avoid dehydration. These factors include your sex, your age, how active you are and if you have any medical conditions. The best rule of thumb is to pay attention to your body. Your urine should be a light colour, and you should not wait until you feel thirsty before you drink a glass of water. It is a good idea to keep a bottle of spring water on hand throughout the day and ensure that you drink before you engage in any strenuous activity.

Best water, service and price! Dealt with Hayley through email who was efficient and friendly and Mary over the phone more recently to add more bottles to be delivered and she was easy to understand and prompt ! Love having good cold water in Perths summer heat and it’s made better when it’s so easy to access with their delivery service and the great customer service they provide.

When your daughter mentions that the water at Mummy's house is better than at Daddy's house you know your onto something good. If a 5yo can taste the difference in the water quality what's that say about what is coming out of our taps. Thanks for making the small changes I've made in our health easy. Delivery guy is always polite and happy to carry the bottles to where I store them. Staff, on the few times I've had to visit the Wangara office, are always polite. Really if you want to do something good for your family then Aussie Natural Spring Water is a no brainer. You won't regret the change.
