10+ reasons to drink more water

We all know, and we shall all agree that water is essential to our health. However, how many of us have as a priority the consumption of clean water and, most of all, its adequate consumption? We are aware of the experts' advice on the amount of water we should drink, as well as of the importance of water filters, but at the fast pace we live, they probably end up being among the first things we neglect. Surely, you already know that the human body comprises 60% water. But do you know that the percentage of water in our brain reaches 85% and that in our blood reaches 90%?

The amount of water we should drink depends on a variety of factors, such as our age, physical activity, etc. But most of us only drink water if we feel thirsty, in other words, when we have already reached the point where our body begins to dehydrate. In addition, besides its limited consumption, we do not care about the quality of the water we drink. That's why the greek Primato water filters ensure that you will enjoy truly clean and tasty water in every glass. As for how much water you should drink, a quick read below will make you reconsider your attitude towards water consumption!


The benefits of water for health

Water is a synonym for health, with its quality being guaranteed only by reliable water filters. Adequate consumption of clean, filtered water has many different benefits for our body. Let's list the most important of them:

  1. Water carries oxygen throughout our body, since our blood comprises 90% water and red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to all our body.
  2. It moisturizes the joints, as the cartilage covering the joints comprises 80% water. Therefore, long-term dehydration makes the vibrations absorption in the joints of our limbs and spine difficult. The natural consequence is pain.
  3. Body hydration stimulates skin health, protecting it from problems and premature wrinkles.
  4. Body hydration creates saliva and mucus, necessary for proper food digestion, dental health, proper functioning of the respiratory tract and protection of various vital organs.
  5. It protects the brain and spinal cord, enhancing its structure and healthy function. Prolonged dehydration can cause thinking and reasoning problems.
  6. It regulates body temperature through sweating.
  7. It detoxifies the body.
  8. It helps maintain blood pressure.
  9. It keeps the kidneys healthy and clean, as they are the organ that regulates the amount of fluids in the body.
  10. It protects us from asthma and respiratory allergies, since, when the body is dehydrated, the airways contract to prevent water loss through breathing.
  11. Water is essential for nutrition, as many vitamins and minerals are water-soluble and must be dissolved in water to be absorbed by the body.
  12. It facilitates weight loss, since two glasses before each meal causes a feeling of fullness, thus limiting the amount of food we consume.
  13. It aids our exercise performance, as hydration increases our endurance in physical activity that lasts more than 30 minutes.

Since 2008, he has published over 300 unique educational and informative articles on water filters and new water treatment technologies.

Occasionally, universities and doctoral students request to use George Margiolos' articles in their research because of their quality and uniqueness.
