One should not rely on being thirsty to indicate when we should drink water. It just is not a good idea to use thirst alone as a guide for when to drink Kangen water. Once the body becomes dehydrated , that is the signal for your body to be thirsty. By the time you become thirsty, it's true and clear that you are already slightly dehydrated. Also, be alert that as you are more often dehydrated the sensation of thirst is also diminished, and as we get older the body is less able to sense dehydration, and then send your brain signals of thirst . .
To prevent dehydration and be healthy make sure your body has the fluids it needs, make water your beverage of choice. Nearly every healthy adult can consider the following:
§ Drink a liter of Kangen water about 45 minutes before each meal. And if you can hold off on drinking more water afterwards until the food has passed from the stomach, this is to allow digestion to occur completely. I know when this happens you might not be aware so 20 minutes is usually good.
§ Drink Kangen water before, during and after exercise. You can check your total body weight loss if you want to be technical about the re hydration you need after exercise. If you are this accurate we can suggest some sports trainers and nutritionist to work with you.
§ Substitute Kangen water for alcoholic drinks at social gatherings. Or at least drink one glass of Kangen water in between any alcoholic beverages. Also a small dash of Kangen water in wine will make it more smooth and decrease the acidity. Ask us about Kangen Ice wow! This is great! I can make a whole bunch of Kangen ice for this 4th of July weekend, drinks and everything is better!
If you drink water from a glass bottle, thoroughly clean the bottle often at least every other day, rinse with 2.5 pH water. If you want my bottle suggestions please send an e-mail...
If you're concerned about your fluid intake, check with your doctor or a registered dietitian. Caution however that if you are excessively thirsty and experience dramatically increased urination, these might be signs of a more serious medical condition.
