Stay hydrated – Eat your water!

Stay hydrated – Eat your water!

Quenching your body with water is essential in keeping well hydrated and flushing out toxins or wastes that the body does not need or want. When water intake does not equal your output – urination, sweating, strenuous exercise and even high altitudes, may cause you to become dehydrated.

Over 60% of our bodies are water! That’s because our body needs these fluids to maintain our temperature, aid in digestion and absorption as well as assist in the transportation of nutrients.

Did you know though that about 20% of our fluid intake comes from food! A great way to keep hydrated without even trying is to eat your water!

Aussie’s favourite hydrating foods are:

Cucumbers: Made up of 95% water, a cup of cucumber slices is nearly as thirst-quenching as a glass of water.At 95 percent water content, a cup of cucumber slices is nearly as thirst-quenching as a glass of water.

Salad Greens: Aside from being a great way to cram in some vegetables, greens also are more than 90% water. They are packed with nutrients, such as folate, vitamin C and fiber!

Strawberries: Strawberries deliver the most vitamin C of all berries and also provide folate, a B vitamin that’s essential for the healthy growth of new cells. And, since they’re 91% water, they’ll contribute significantly toward your overall fluid intake

Watermelon: At 92% water, hence the name, watermelon is a good source of vitamin C and, when it’s red (some are orange or yellow), also has lycopene, an antioxidant that may help protect against heart disease and some types of cancer. 

Yogurt: Depending on your preferred type, regular plain yogurt can be 85 to 88% water. You’ll also get calcium, some B vitamins  and  some good-for-you probiotics!

Papaya: Made up of 88 % water, this fruit will help you stay hydrated and provide a delicious snack! Better yet, 1 cup delivers 3 grams of fiber for just 55 calories.

Butternut Pumpkin: This sweet and nutty pumpkin is 80% water. A cup of cooked butternut also boasts over 400% of your daily value for vitamin A, a key nutrient for eye health.

All these foods will help you not only keep hydrated but also provide your body with essential nutrients.

Remember though the very best way to stay hydrated is by drinking Aussie Natural Spring Water regularly. Get a water cooler in your home or office for just $9 a month! Contact Aussie today and take advantage of our special offers.

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.
