One of the benefits of drinking water is that adequate hydration has a huge impact on your immune system, so it is critical to be very aware of the quantity and quality of the water you are actually drinking. Make sure it is truly functional water, and you are drinking enough of it!
While exposure to bacteria and virus’ cannot be completely avoided, boosting the immune system is possible. A stronger immune system helps fight a lot of health threats!
Key Benefits of Water
1. Water Oxygenates Your Blood and Cleanses Toxins
A regular glass of water refreshes you as it helps carry oxygen throughout the body — to organs, tissues, and blood cells. Your immune system functions best when your muscles and organs are functioning best. Water also promotes adaptive immune response by working to get rid of toxic foreign invaders from the body through the kidneys. It prevents toxin build-up which, in turn, boosts immune function.
Have you tried Lemon Water/Tea? Lemon squeezed in water or tea is a good source of Vitamin C. It not only adds a citrus flavor to the drink but also:
- 1. Boosts the function of the immune system
- 2. Fights bacteria, viruses, and fungi that cause cold, flu, and infection
- 3. Keeps foreign substances away from cells
- 4. Helps prevent diseases
- 5. Aids in digestion
- 5. Promotes detoxification
2. Water Helps in the Production of Lymph
Your body’s immune system uses lymph fluids to circulate white blood cells and nutrients to all of the body’s tissues. Lymph fulfills the following functions in your body:
- 1. It carries water and nutrients to the blood, and through the blood, to the cells of the body.
- 2. It carries white blood cells and other immune system cells from the thymus and the bone marrow, throughout the body.
- 3. It removes toxins from the blood.
Your body needs water in order to produce lymph fluids. Without it, your white blood cells and other immune cells would not be able to travel throughout the body to fight disease.
3. Water Promotes Good Quality Rest
Drinking water regularly triggers the brain to produce melatonin and other sleep-inducing chemicals. The result is good quality rest and a completely recharged body which in itself is a vital support to a strong and productive immune system.
4. Water Helps You Digest Your Food
You need adequate nutrition to maintain a strong immune system. One of the benefits of drinking plenty of water is that it keeps your digestive system strong so that you can properly digest your food. If you don’t drink enough water, you could become constipated, or develop even more severe digestive problems. You would also not be able to sufficiently access and process all of the valuable nutrients from your food (see below).
5. Water Assists With The Adsorption Of Essential Nutrients
Drinking plenty of water also ensures that your cells get adequate nutrition from your blood. Zinc, vitamin C, and other water soluble essential nutrients dissolve and are carried throughout the body for absorption. You may have a healthy, nutrient-rich diet, but without adequate hydration to make them accessible, it’s hard to absorb all of the nutrients from your food. Make sure to sip water with your meal, and have plenty in between.
6. Water Cleanses Our Senses
For our sense organs, like the skin, eyes, and mouth, water maintains moisture on mucous membranes. Mucus is the slimy-sticky liquid lining your sinuses, “containing antibodies and bacteria-killing enzymes to help fight off infections.” Mucus also acts as a barrier that prevents pathogens like dust, smoke, and bacteria from getting further into your body where they can cause real harm. They literally get stuck, ready for elimination through a runny nose. When mucus gets too dry, it can’t do it’s job of catching pathogens before they enter your body. Make sure your mucus membranes stay healthy by drinking lots of water.
Turn Your Tap Water In To Mineral Water
You do not need to worry about your health as much if you are drinking enough water every day. If you find your body being particularly susceptible to colds and allergies, your body may be sending you a sign that the amount of water you drink is not enough for the immune system to properly function.
