What to drink to best hydrate the body?

There is much talk about water. Some say to drink boiled, others bottled, and others that it is better to drink juices.

What to drink to best hydrate the body?

But how is it with this water? Is it worth drinking or not?
The adult organism consists of 60% water, while the child with 75-80%.
It is said that without food a person will last even a month, while without water it will take only a few days.
What role does water play in our body?
  • is a solvent for ingredients distributed throughout our body,
  • is necessary for proper digestion processes,
  • plays the role of protection,
  • enables the transport of nutrients,
  • protects the body against overheating
Water "escapes" from our body together with sweat, urine, and exhaled air, so it is important to fill its deficiencies all day.
Doctors alarm - spring water contains only trace amounts of minerals that remain in our body. It is better to drink mineral water, because it leaves the body with the right amount of minerals we need for the proper functioning of the body.

On Friday at yoga I learned that cold water cools the body and kidneys, therefore it is better to drink warm water (e.g. at room temperature, but preferably slightly warmed). Such water relaxes our muscles (it is recommended especially during high effort so that our body does not get shocked).

It is known, it looks a little different in summer, when it is hot. Then definitely reach for cooler drinks. Thanks to this, we will cool our body.
Juices are also very healthy and tasty, but only those that we make ourselves. Good juice can also be bought in the store, but it's worth checking the composition. Unfortunately, most juices available on our market contain huge amounts of sugar, as well as other ingredients that we don't need at all.
When buying juices, we buy from such fruits that are available in our country. Apple juice is the one I choose the most, because apples are grown in Poland. Thanks to this, manufacturers do not combine with enhancers, as with exotic flavors, including coconut, pineapple, lychee, cactus, or other. I ignore the fact that these juices probably didn't even stand next to the fruit they have on the label.
They are also very tasty tomato juices. They are especially recommended for people who have frequent calf cramps. However, as with fruit juices, they often contain sugar and / or salt. It is better to buy a few tomatoes yourself, peel, blend and pass through a strainer. You can add a few basil leaves to this juice if you like it.
And how to check that we drink too little water? Well, once on one of the blogs I read that hydration of our body is manifested by the color of urine. The paler the urine, the better, because there is enough water in the body. I wonder if this method is reliable, but it certainly doesn't hurt if we look at their color after peeing;)

    My friend noticed that when lubricated with moisturizing lotions, it swells less than the so-called water retention, i.e. its water does not stop in such a system. I like highly mineralized and medium water. And so I distinguish water by taste; D

    with this urine it is definitely true 😉 I have never read it from a 'professional' point of view but I have noticed it myself - the less I drink, the more yellow it is, and the more, the more I feel that I pee water. 😀
