Nutrition Facts it is all about the water

Nutrition Facts it is all about the water
Water it is all about the Kangen water!

For More Information

Physiological Functions: Water is widely known as an essential nutrient because it must be consumed from external sources to meet our body’s metabolic demand, and requirements. Water constitutes approximately 60%to 75% of adult total body weight.

Water is a catalyst for or involved in most all of the body’s enzymatic reactions including all of those involved in nutrient digestion, absorption, transport, and metabolism.

It is also required for facilitating removal of metabolic waste by the kidneys. Inadequate intake of water compromises, and then damages cell functions by contributing electrolyte imbalances, contraction of plasma volume (reduction of blood), and finally and sometimes fatally the bodies inability to regulate body temperature.
Factors Affecting Availability Water is not consumed in sufficient amounts by most individuals since thirst does not develop until body fluids are depleted well below levels required for optimal functioning.

Many people wait till thirst to drink Kangen water...

This thirst signal is suppressed with prolonged dehydration. It is known that persons who are more hydrated sense thirst more readily. These processes and mechanisms that cause the thirst sensations are stimulated by increased transfer or decreased extracellular volume which is not detected until significant contraction of plasma volume has occurred. A person experiencing blood volume contraction maybe at risk for additional damage and illness.

Groups most vulnerable to dehydration, infants, elderly adults, and athletes, are either not able to adequately express thirst sensations or to detect them, or have expended large volumes of liquids through exertion.

With extreme heat, advanced exercise exertion or competitive engagement resulting in excessive perspiration, thirst may lag behind actual water requirements, to the detriment of performance or health. To prevent dehydration, a minimum of eight cups of Kangen Water is suggested daily. Additional water from beverages and foods may also increase the body’s total volume.

Deficiency Loss of body water amounting to 10% of the body weight impairs work, athletic, and mental performance and is associated with nausea, weakness, delirium, and hyperthermia.

Signs of dehydration include poor skin turgor, skin tenting on the forehead, decreased urine output, concentrated urine, sunken eyes, dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose, orthostatic blood pressure changes and tachycardia. Water losses exceeding 20% of body weight are extremely life-threatening.
Kangen Requirements Consumption of approximately 2.5 to 3 liters (10.4-12.5 cups daily) of Kangen water is recommended to maintain optimal hydration. Some foods and beverages can also add to the total volume of water in the body and aid to satisfy this requirement. The equivalent of 8 cups of water (64 fluid ounces or 2 liters) is the MINIMUM amount of fluid recommended daily to replace water losses under conditions of low activity, low ambient temperature, and low altitude.

Trends and how to be a part; Health, Holistic, Hydrate

How trends come and with them bring opportunity;

Marian Salzman a top trend spotter has recently been quoted as saying "watch for "H" themes; Health, Holistic, Hydrate. She asks if water should be free to all. She predicts that Hydation will be a theme of the near furture. We also agree hyrdation and being hydrated will be clear paths to health and wellenss in the near term.

Be sure you drink plenlty of pure clean hexagonal water.

with Joy,
