DRINK WATER WITHOUT THIRST AGAINST A HEART ATTACK

According to research, those who drink 2 cups of water and less have a higher risk of heart attack. It iis worthy to note that drinking at least 6 glasses of water a day is also very beneficial for our heart.

We know how useful water is for our health, but we don’t drink enough during the day because we either forget or don’t feel thirsty. However, an Internal Medicine Specialist who points out that dehydration poses a great threat to the body, especially to heart health, Turkey Medicals member and JCI hospital in Istanbul Professor Doctor, he gave the following information about this vital drink…

.
THE BENEFITS DO NOT END WITH COUNTING

70 Percent of our body is water. Water delivers oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body, increases blood volume, ensures the healthy functioning of the heart and cleanses the body of toxins. It prevents kidney diseases, constipation and muscle cramps. It protects against infections, provides weight control and moisturizes the skin. A large part of people do not drink enough water. For this reason, they continue to live in a chronically dehydrated, that is, dehydrated state, endangering their health.

IT IS THE INSURANCE OF OUR HEALTH

Even a small amount of water loss disrupts the body’s balance, causes fatigue, decreased concentration, and pain. Human health is endangered if adequate and correct water is not drunk. In order to live healthy and not gain weight, it is essential to consume water regularly. Water accelerates the basal metabolism. This means consuming more energy at rest and while sleeping, and therefore not gaining weight. Insufficient water, on the other hand, makes a person tired, fat and sick. The risk of death from a heart attack was found to be much less in those who drank 6 or more glasses of water a day than in those who drank 2 cups and less a day. Because water protects the vessels and heart by increasing the fluidity of the blood. It has been found that some types of cancer occur less frequently in those who drink enough and proper water. Cancer of the large intestine, bladder and breast is less common in those who drink enough water.

PAY ATTENTION IF YOU USUALLY CONSUME TEA, COFFEE AND ACIDIC DRINKS

Water from tea, coffee and acidic drinks will never replace real water. Such drinks, with their diuretic effect, cause the body to become even more dehydrated. If not enough water is drunk, toxins accumulate in the body, metabolism slows down, chronic diseases, complaints such as pain and weight gain occur.

.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I DRINK?

An adult person loses an average of 2-2.5 liters of water per day through the lungs, skin, bowel movements and urine. This lost water must necessarily be replaced. If you don’t like drinking water, you can add cucumber, cinnamon, mint leaves, ginger or apple slices to the water to improve its taste.

.
RESOURCES ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY POLLUTED

Unfortunately, access to clean water sources is very difficult in the world now. Industrial chemicals, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, petrochemicals, domestic and industrial wastes pollute water resources. Unfortunately, sufficient technological possibilities for the purification of water resources from these chemicals are limited.

.
DO NOT CONFUSE HUNGER AND THIRST

People tend to confuse feelings of hunger and thirst in general. When the body is dehydrated, this feeling is perceived as hunger in a significant part of people and the need to eat arises, so that excess calories are taken. Therefore, when you feel a feeling of hunger, drink water first.
