Research shows that Americans are often chronically dehydrated. It appears that Americans will drink almost anything except water.
Amanda Carlson, a trainer, conducted a study on college football players who were preparing for the major NFL Scouting event. She found that 98 per cent of them were dehydrated when they arrived for the morning evaluation.
Researchers at Tufts University also found that college athletes who are mildly dehydrated, and engage in high-impact aerobics 60 to 75 minutes per day without sufficient water intake, were more likely feel tired, confused, angry or depressed.
What is the point? Water matters, no matter how elite you are, whether you’re a weekend warrior, or a gym rat.
“In my experience, most people are not aware of how much they’re drinking and are not drinking enough — many, as little as half of what they need,”Carlson is the director of performance nutrition at Athlete’s Performance, which is a training facility for elite athletes.
Water is not only good for your workout, but can also be used to control unwanted weight.
“Water’s involved in every type of cellular process in your body, and when your dehydrated, they all run less efficiently — and that includes your metabolism,”Carlson.
It can be difficult for the body distinguish between hunger or thirst. Sometimes, hunger can be caused by your body needing to drink.
All water is not created equal. Alkame Water has benefits that other bottled water does not, such as tap water.
It’s as simple as this: Your body must maintain a healthy pH level in order to function properly. According to Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, an unbalanced pH can cause your body to take important minerals from your bones and vital organs in order to eliminate acid. Alkame is a mildly alkaline water that counters acidity. This will give you a better chance to prevent sickness, premature aging and weak bones.
Alkaline water also has the added benefit of being infused with high levels stabilized, dissolved oxygen. This is good news for overall health and can improve aerobic capacity, energy, and overall vitality.
