Healthy Hydration

Don't forget that nourishment doesn't only come from what we eat but also what we drink. It's essential to stay well hydrated, because water nourishes every system of the body and is vital for survival. In fact, despite the fact that the human body can sustain up to several weeks without food, we can only live a few days without water.


Consider this:

Our body is roughly 70% water

Our blood is about 50% water

Our lungs are 83% water

Our heart and brain are 73% water

Our muscles and kidneys are 79% water

Our skin is 64% water

Even our bones are 31% water!


To figure out how much water your body needs on a daily basis, divide your weight (in pounds) by 2, and try to drink AT LEAST that many ounces a day. If you have a hard time drinking plain H2O, try making your own "spa water" by adding fresh lemon, cucumber, mint, berries, watermelon or any combination of your favorite fruit and/or herbs. Or try mixing it with coconut water or a splash of your favorite juice.
