The Health Benefits of Drinking Water

Water is the second most important ingredient for the body after oxygen. Drinking a glass of water after your session is recommended to help flush toxins out of the system.

The health benefits of drinking water are many, including: a clear, healthy and vibrant complexion, regular bowel and urinary functions, healthier teeth and bones, and as an aid in weight loss. Drinking water is essential for life. We can live without many things including certain foods. However, without consuming adequate amounts of drinking water we will die in only a few days. Water makes up about two thirds of the human body. It is the main component of blood, urine, lymph, sweat, and digestive juices. We need water simply to function every day. Water produces energy, regulates body temperature, builds new cells, lubricates joints, and eliminates waste.

We lose water naturally every day from breathing, sweating, and eliminating waste. We also lose water every day as a result of exercise and/or environmental conditions such as humidity and heat. During the summer months, water loss is greater because perspiration, which is used to cool our bodies, evaporates faster in a hot environment. As it evaporates, our bodies produce more perspiration, using up more and more of the water in our bodies. When the water has been depleted, our bodies are not able to cool and we become over heated. Without water, blood pressure rises and the heart begins to malfunction causing the kidneys to shut down. This is very dangerous and can lead to death if not treated properly in time.

Because using the Exerciser Elite® helps to move the lymph fluid, a person will most likely experience different forms of detoxification. Detox and cleansing is one of the most important functions that the human body performs. When most people decide to detox their body it is usually because they are sick and are having a problem recovering from a long term chronic illness. They are trying to clean out toxins that have accumulated over several years. There are many parts of the body that handle detoxification such as the liver, lungs, kidneys, colon and skin. Drinking water helps carry the toxins out of the body quicker and more efficiently.
