The Source of Life

Like all living things, we need water. If this delicate plant doesn't get enough water, it shrivels up, too much will suffocate it, but with just enough, it's visibly strong and healthy, Did you know that 60%-75% of our bodies are made up of water? So if you're not feeling right, (backache, headache, digestion, always tired...), perhaps you're not getting enough H2O. On average, women should be drinking 2.2 liters (74oz or 9 cups) each day, while men should aim for 3 liters (101oz or 12.5 cups) The exact amount is different for everyone, depending on age, physical activity, climate and diet. This is the largest glass container I have to keep with me throughout the day, so I only need to drink 2 of these, plus my morning lemon water and nighttime herbal tea. It's hard to keep track of 8 cups a day!! Drink water when you feel like you're wanting a snack, wait a few minutes to see if your body is still hungry. Also, note that if you drink water (not alcohol) anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour before you have a meal, it aids your digestion.
