It’s important to stay well hydrated

As we all bake in this summer’s oppressive heat it’s extremely important to stay well hydrated at all times.  75% of our bodies’ weight is comprised of water and that water is distributed in different compartments  throughout the body. Lean muscle tissue contains about 75% water, blood contains 83%, body fat contains 25%, and bone is 22% water.  It’s safe to say that every single bodily function requires water to effectively perform and that’s why adequate hydration is so essential to maintaining good health.

But how do we ensure we’re getting enough water.  For starters medicine.net (http://www.medicinenet.com/dehydration/article.htm) provides a great chart to help you track how many ounces of water your body will likely need on a daily basis.  In hot weather like this, though, it’s also important to keep in mind that you’re likely losing more water through sweat so it’s always better to err on the side of caution and drink more water.  Another great way to ensure hydration is by making sure you’re adding Willard Water to your drinks.

In fact, one of the very first experiments Dr. Willard performed with his newly invented Willard Water involved hydration.  As a professor of chemistry at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Dr. Willard had a readily available supply of test subjects in his students and they were always willing to work with him on his studies.  Even today, we’re constantly hearing from Dr. Willard’s former students regarding those “early days” of Willard Water development and the studies he did on hydration were apparently very popular.  What Dr. Willard and his students found in these studies is that the Willard Water not only helps the body deliver nutrients, minerals and electrolytes throughout the body but it also helps the cells absorb, and retain, that much needed water.  Subsequent studies on both plants and animals indicated that the Willard Water actually works BETTER under more extreme heat and dehydration conditions.

So, if you’re worried about hydration in the dog days of summer, remember to add some Willard Water to your daily routine.  It will help keep you well hydrated and healthy as your body struggles to keep up with these record temperatures.  As an added incentive, use the coupon code hot2011 on our website at drwillard.com or when calling us at 888-379-4552 and you’ll get 25% off your entire order.
