Why is water good for you?

February 18, 2010

We all know we should drink more water but just how much of it do we need every day? We get the lowdown on the liquid stuff.

Your body is about 60 to 70 per cent water. Your body needs water to regulate body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to all your organs. Water also transports oxygen to your cells, removes waste, and protects your joints and organs.

You lose water through urination, respiration, and by sweating. Caffeine and alcohol also suck water from the body and no one wants to give up their wine time!

The Institute of Medicine advises that men consume roughly 3 litres (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day and women consume 2.2 litres (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day. Remember that you get 20 per cent of your water from the foods you eat though . The rest of your water need should come from the beverages you drink.

Noble’s Pureau is one of those beverages that gives you maximum punch! It’s the only Australian water that is 100% guaranteed to be completely free of all impurities including chlorine, bacteria, sodium (salt), fluoride, pesticides and other inorganic minerals.

Many doctors, naturopaths and homeopaths recommend that their patients drink Pureau as an alternative to tap or other bottled water and many pregnant and breast-feeding women drink Pureau as it’s the only water that 100% guarantees to be completely free of bacteria.

So drink up baby! Get your daily dose of the liquid stuff and feel better in seconds.
