Use filtered alkalised water; preferably the ionising Designer Water Jug that removes most impurities like chlorine and heavy metals .Increases the pH of water by up to 2 points and the anti-oxidant potential. You should drink at least 2 litres of filtered water a day!

  1. Alkalize your water using corral calcium. This helps to reduce acidity in the body and supplies much needed oxygen to all parts.

  2. Water naturally suppresses the appetite and helps the body to metabolize stored fat. If the liver is not working to full capacity it cannot metabolize the stored fat and weight loss does not occur.

  3. Kidneys cannot function properly without water. If kidney function is impaired they dump their load onto the liver. This may also result in increased bladder infections.

  4. The overweight person needs more water than the thin person as larger person has larger metabolic loads.

  5. Water helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving muscles their natural ability to contract and prevent dehydration.

  6. Water also helps to prevent the sagging of the skin that usually follows weight loss. Shrinking cells are buoyed by water which plumps up skin.

  7. Water can help relieve constipation. When the body gets too little water, it has to draw water from internal sources, like the colon, resulting in constipation.

  8. Our bodies are made up of approximately 70% water and 30% solids, mostly bone. The water we drink provides for cellular and bodily functions such as digestion, respiration, perspiration, transport of nutrients to, and metabolic waste from various systems & organs. Dehydration impairs the efficiency of these important functions.

  9. The best treatment for fluid retention is to drink more water. When the body gets too little water it perceives it as a threat to survival, drinking more water then helps the release of stored water.

  10. Most headaches during the day are the result of dehydration. Drink a glass or two of water and wait 15 minutes before reaching for the painkillers.
