Drink for healthy and slim

Adult human body consists of about 60% water, which meets the very important role in maintaining health and proper functioning of our body. Not without significance is the fact that a person deprived of fluid, can survive only a few days. It provides the environment changes and reactions occurring in the body, is a means to transport the substances involved in thermoregulation of the body, "moisturize from the inside" our skin, is part of the digestive juices: bile, pancreatic juice, intestinal juice, gastric juice, saliva.

You can continue to exchange the functions of water in the body, but it is important to remember that this is due to its content it is possible to maintain normal metabolism and, hence, faster, dropping pounds. Why is it important to provide enough fluid? Since the body loses water throughout the day along with faeces, sweat, exhaled air, especially in the urine. It must therefore be remembered that during the day we should drink about 2 liters of water. It is known, however, that value will fluctuate, depending on body temperature and ambient humidity levels and the state of physical activity.

The importance of proper irrigation of the body during weight loss

During weight loss, where there is a reduction in food intake, the body can run out of water, which has previously been supplied with food. Therefore, to avoid slowing down the metabolism and allow for efficient removal of unnecessary or harmful substances, it is proper hydration. Currently, the Internet or other sources so you can find. Shipping Calculator, calculates the required daily intake for each fluid.

However, it is no room for extremism, for which too much is not healthy, and in this case, the excess fluid is especially dangerous because it can lead to partial or complete rinsing of mineral salts from the body, as the worst consequence is death. Consequently, I, as in all others, should exercise restraint.

It is important to remember not to drink while eating a meal. It is recommended to drink about 30 minutes before or after consumption, so as not to neutralize the digestive juices, and thus not to hamper the digestion of food.

Spring water is characterized by a low degree of mineralization (up to 500 mg / l minerals), has a delicate flavor and can drink it at will, just as the low-mineralized water (of course, common sense). Caution is needed in case of highly mineralized water (at least 1,000 mg / l) and curative waters. You should not drink them in large quantities, because one can harm any of the excess dissolved minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium. As regards the medicinal water, although they help in many medical problems, they should not be eaten on its own, only after consulting your doctor.

In addition, it contained carbon dioxide is not conducive to people with stomach ailments (eg, hyperacidity), because it can damage the lining of the stomach, such as contributing to the formation of ulcers.
