Eating a healthy diet and drinking adequate water is key to good detoxification and a long and healthy life. Water dilution is the solution to pollution in our systems, we know this, but are we drinking enough?
Today put a gorgeous glass gallon pitcher on your counter top filled with water, fill every glass (every hydro flask when you are leaving the house) from it and see where you are this evening, just do it!
Why Drink Water?
Water is crucial for diluting and eliminating toxic accumulations.
Water is our most important detoxifier. It helps us clean through our skin, kidneys, and improves our ability to sweat during exercise.
We need 48 to 64 ounces daily to replenish the water lost through urine, sweat, and breathing.
Two glasses of water thirty to sixty minutes before each meal will help to flush toxins.
