3 Simple Ways To Hydrate

Updated: Nov 7, 2020

Hydration is one of the essential ingredients of life. We can go days, even weeks, without food. But we can only survive three days without water. In fact, up to 60% of our body is water. But do you really know how much water you drank today? You may feel like you are drinking enough liquids but chances are you are not.

The quality of our water makes a big difference to our bodies. If you are drinking tap water or even tap water that has a filter on it (like the type used in refrigerators), you are still ingesting chemicals and pollutants that is damaging essential systems in the body. Our digestive system needs clean drinking water to help filter waste out of our bodies.

3 simple ways to hydrate for good gut health

Medical Daily states a constant supply of water is needed to aid in digestion because the digestive process results in our bodies losing water. Drinking fluids and eating foods that contain water can act as a digestive aid. Proper digestion makes minerals and nutrients more accessible to the body. Water is also necessary to help digest soluble fiber, which helps the bowel make well-formed, soft stools that are easy to pass.

If you have gut health issues such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or Colitis, you may need to drink more water than the average person. Some of the symptoms of IBS or Colitis, such as diarrhea and watery, loose stools, results in the loss of water.
