5 Surprising Hydration Facts You May Not Know

Hydration doesn’t just keep you moist, it works from the inside out to overcome fatigue and lack of focus, gives you easy fluid movement, helps digest your food, and washes away waste and contaminants in your system. Hydration actually gives you energy you need for thinking, feeling and healing. Water is really your fuel and being hydrated is preventative care.

Fact #1: 8 Glasses a Day is Not the Way; There is a Better Kind of Water

There is a kind of water we find in nature – it is the water in streams and springs, in fruits and vegetables, and in our cells. Nature’s water has been identified as structured water with the molecular structure of H3O2 or Ez Water. Recent science has emerged from the culmination of over 30 years of experiments and research from the University of Washington laboratory of Dr. Gerald Pollack, PhD. “What we found . . . is not H20, it is actually H302. At this phase, water is potential energy, just like a battery of water.” Dr. Pollack found that H3O2 is 10% denser and has more oxygen than regular tap or bottled H2O. Perhaps the most surprising difference is that while tap or bottled water has little to no charge, structured water has an electrical charge. Because of the energy in structured water, you can drink less water and be better hydrated.

Fact # 2: 80% of Our Blood Is Water When We Are Adequately Hydrated

When the water level in our blood falls, it is the concentration of other particles that trigger our sensation of thirst. Here are some other figures from the Journal of Biological Chemistry: 60% of a man’s body weight is water, for women, it is 50%. Muscle is 73% water, but body fat is only 10%. Our brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and our lungs are about 83% water. Skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even bones are watery: 31%. Water is constantly moving through our cells. Approximately 4-10% of our body water is replaced daily with “fresh” water.

Fact # 3: Your Body Can Produce 8-16 Ounces of Water Per Day

This occurs during normal metabolic processes. A runner can produce this much water in as little as 2 hours. When muscles burn glycogen, they simultaneously produce metabolic water. This helps protect against dehydration, but it is no substitute for replenishing all the water you lose when sweating.

Fact # 4: Two Pound Weight Loss from Sweating Equals 32 Ounces of Water

Being hydrated when exercising and in hot environments enables you to sweat to keep you from overheating. Here is a simple equation: losing 2 pounds of weight through sweat equals 32 ounces of water. Drink accordingly to offset this loss.

Fact # 5: Nearly 50% of Bottled Water is Actually Tap Water

According to the Center for Science for the Public Interest, it may surprise you to learn that nearly half of bottled water is not from the beautiful, pristine mountain streams or natural springs found on the label, but rather from municipal water. If you just turned on your tap you will not only save money, you will also help stem the flood of plastic bottles ending up in our landfills, to the tune of approximately 100 million per day, of which less than 20% is recycled. Make structured water from your tap AND be green!

Gina Bria, an anthropologist and author, discovered hydration solutions to modern water challenges while researching desert dwellers. Her first project was to support her elderly mother who was suffering from dehydration in a nursing home. Surprised these natural strategies, confirmed by recent science breakthroughs, were not more widespread, she convened the first TEDx event Bodies of Water, creating 4 TEDxtalks, as well as the Hydration Foundation to spread information on structured water.

From a perspective of hydration, the paradigm we are living in is not supporting us. We may not have complete agreement on which aspects of the paradigm are determining the current results, but one thing we can agree on is the research on over 40,000 people that shows that people absorb less than 10% of the water they drink and at least 94% of us are dehydrated.
