What is Oxygenated Water?

PRACTICE

Oxygenated water is water that has been specially treated using unique proprietary

methods to increase the level of saturated oxygen. The enrichment processes that

create oxygenated water are similar to the way extra amounts of saturated carbon

dioxide are added to soft drinks. Activated Oxygen injection is the last step in our

water purification systems to produce clean healthy water. As soon as oxygenated

water is ingested, the oxygen begins to be absorbed into the bloodstream then

continues on through the digestive system.

One of the most important benefits of drinking water that is oxygenated is that it

aids in strengthening the immune system. Oxygen helps promote the replication of

good bacteria in the body. By drinking water that has been enriched with oxygen, it

creates an environment in your body that promotes a strong immune system.

Higher oxygen levels also offer other benefits, especially while exercising. Oxygen-
enriched water greatly reduces internal muscle burn and enhances overall athletic

performance allowing for longer workouts and faster recovery.

Oxygen injected water has been proven through many significant scientific studies

to provide many overall health and wellness benefits. Our machines provide point of

use healthy, fresh oxygenated water on demand for your whole company!

Are You Drinking Enough Water?

#smm-1

With summer right around the corner and rising temperatures, it is important to stay adequately hydrated! Since up to 60% of your body is water, it is a vital part in ensuring every part of your body is working properly. From flushing waste and toxins to keeping your body at an optimum temperature, water helps to keep us alive!

Throughout the day, your body loses water through urine, breathing and sweat glands. As a result, you have to constantly replenish this fluid, and sugary sodas and coffee do not count toward this requirement. Because of the high caffeine content in these drinks, they can dehydrate your body. Sticking to pure, clean water is best when rehydrating. Once your body has already lost 1-2% of it’s total water content, you will begin to experience your body’s natural mechanism that tells you when you need to replenish your water supply- thirst. However, by the time you are thirsty, your body may already be a bit dehydrated. Studies have indicated that about 66% of us are dehydrated and need to drink more water.

Before your signals that you are thirsty, learn the subtler signs your body sends, indicating you need to drink more water.

  • Fatigue or moodiness
  • Hunger even after a recent meal
  • Infrequent urination, dark concentrated urine

Besides paying attention to the above signs, a good indicator is to look at the color of your urine. You should be consuming enough water so your urine is a light yellow. How often you urinate can also be used to judge your intake of water. A well-hydrated person urinates about 7-8 times per day. If you haven’t gone to the bathroom in several hours, it is a good indication that you may be dehydrated. A good guideline is to drink six- eight, 8-ounce glasses of water every day. Some adults may need more or less, depending on how active and healthy they are and what type of climate they live in. Some good tips for staying hydrated are:

  • Drink a glass after every time you use the bathroom
  • Sip before every meal
  • Keep a glass of water on your bedside table to drink first thing when you wake BEFORE coffee or tea
  • Invest in a reusable water bottle to sip from throughout the day

By depriving ourselves of water, we are continuously damaging our bodies. Listening and being in tune to your body’s signals will help you stay healthier and live happier.
