Don’t Like Water? Try These Tips To Stay Hydrated!
When in doubt, flush it out! One of the important reasons we encourage using the hydration tool in Movin’ Together. Keep reading to learn how to win a $50.00 gift certificate to Tree of Life Natural Foods! Many products they sell in the store were created to support wellness naturally.
Herbalist Daryl McCullough, who owns the store, shares the importance of hydration. He noted that we are mostly 70% water, so keeping our bodies working well requires hydration. He stressed that many of us who suffer from low back pain may find relief by drinking more water. (Muscles are 79% water) Those who start their day with coffee could follow up with a glass of water because coffee is a diuretic. In the store, he sells a product that tastes like coffee called Dandy Blend which does not have caffeine so you may want to try it!
Daryl also explained that water is needed to transport nutrients to your cells and waste out of the body. (when it doubt – flush it out) Watch the video that accompanies this writing for more reasons to hydrate.
My research found that drinking water first upon awakening flushes the stomach and balances the lymphatic system. A stable lymphatic system helps build a robust immune system, preventing us from getting sick as often. So I now drink two glasses of water when I awaken. I told Daryl I do not enjoy drinking water during the day, so he suggested ways to help water taste better.
One of Daryl’s suggestions to help water taste better is a product he sells called Slender Sticks. I tried one, and I enjoyed it! Another glass down for the day!
To put it simply—and there are volumes of books on the benefits of water—water keeps your organs functioning properly, clears toxins, eliminates excess sodium from your body, hydrates your muscle cells, nourishes your skin, and boosts your metabolism. Additionally, weight loss can only be accomplished when you give your body the necessary water and proper nutrients.
When you go into Tree of Life Natural Foods, you will find many products that benefit living a fun and healthier life. They have teas, essential oils, supplements, eggs, raw milk, maple syrup, nuts, and seeds, body care products and many more!
