Discussing :: Water - an underrated health tonic


I try to drink plenty of water each day and it definitely makes a difference to my energy levels, my skin and my hair.


Water, definitely good for you. Often think we do not drink enough of it.


By the time you feel thirst you can actually already be in a state of dehydration so it's a good idea to keep water with you and sip it through the day.


I am a devotee of the natural spring fountain in Petone. Cold, refreshing and very pure.


keeping hydrated is so important. water is great for weight loss and also your skin. I also enjoy water with a slice of lemon from time to time.


It has taken me a long time but now I enjoy water and sometime prefer it to other drinks. I have always tried to drink lots of water everyday because i felt it was good for me but it was a chore.


A glass of water with lemon juice in it every morning before anything else cleanses your body (esp your liver) and gets you going for the day. Water is so much better than sugar laden drinks and juices.


I leave drink bottles everywhere so that they remind to drink up. It works quite well, as long as you remember to change the water if it doesn't get drunk :)


I try my hardest to drink lots of water...I know it's good for you, but at times it's just really hard to drink it!


No so long ago, there was no such thing as bottled water and and soft drinks were a treat. People didn't believe that they had to be constantly hydrated and carry water bottles around with them everywhere. Quite a bit of research has gone into the "eight glassses a day" fiction... "There's no denying that water is good for you, but does everyone really need to drink 8 glasses or more every day? According to Heinz Valtin, a retired professor of physiology from Dartmouth Medical School who specialized in kidney research and spent 45 years studying the biological system that keeps the water in our bodies in balance, the answer is no." " In 2008 Dan Negoianu and Stanley Goldfarb reviewed the evidence for the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. They came to a similar conclusion: "There is no clear evidence of benefit from drinking increased amounts of water."
