For decades we have been told “drink eight glasses of water every day.” Do we know the origin of this well-known myth?
Amanda parades daily with her fancy two litre water bottle embellished with a flourescent green cover and handle. This is not a facade. Her aim is to drink the entire bottle in one day. But for now, she struggles to get to the halfway mark.
For decades we have been told “drink eight glasses of water every day.” Do we know the origin of this well-known myth? Is there any scientific justification? According to an article on www.youngliving.com “the adequate intake recommends around 95 ounces for women over the age of 19 and 131 ounces for men over the age of 19. We must be mindful that our total water intake includes drinking water, water in beverages and water that is part of food.
Many of us are in the same situation as Amanda. There are many strategies we can use to increase our water intake such as drinking water that is pleasing to our taste buds. You might think that water doesn’t have flavour, but water tastes differently depending on where it comes from. Caribbean Spring is is bottled directly from a natural spring located in the rainforests of the Northern Range. It is naturally alkaline with a pH of 8.0 straight out of the spring and it is packed with minerals that gives it a soft refreshing taste that making it a lot more palatable than other mineral water brands.
