Water is important to our health. We need it to maintain the proper functioning of all our organs and tissues. We need water to regulate our body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to our organs and tissues. Water in our bodies’ transports oxygen to cells, removes wastes and lubricates and protects our joints and organs.
Entire books, such as Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, have been devoted to discussing the health, beauty, and healing properties of water.
In order for our bodies to function correctly, we need to have the correct balance of water. If we take in too much water, it can cause hyponatremia. If we lose too much water then dehydration can occur. Many people in our society don’t drink enough water throughout the day, and have replaced it with coffee, juices, and soda. According to MayoClinic.com, the general guideline is to consume eight 8 oz. glasses of water every day, possibly more if you are extremely active.
The common complaint with drinking so much water is that it’s “boring.” People gravitate toward juices, coffees, teas, and sodas seeking flavor. Guess what? We have great news for you. Water does not have to be boring and flavorless. Water can be delicious, full of flavor, healthy, and beautiful. Check out twelve of our favorite water recipes and enjoy!
