Summer is in full swing, along with the warm days, warm nights, and much longer days. It means it is the time of year where we are all a little more active, enjoy the outdoors more, head to the beach or pool, or simply enjoy relaxing. No matter what we are doing this summer, water is essential for us to stay hydrated and well during the warmer months.
Summer’s long, hot and humid climate means sweat perspires off our bodies as fast as ice cubes can melt, so it is essential that we hydrate our bodies. Water is the key to good health, and during summer when we are a little more active, it is easy to forget to drink enough water.
Many do not realise the importance of getting enough fluids during hot temperatures. It is also very easy to not realise how much water your body has released and that you are becoming dehydrated when we are swimming or even laying in an air-conditioned room.
There are a number of reasons why staying hydrated is important.
Water regulates Body Temperature
Our body regulates its temperature through sweating, exhaling and consuming water or electrolyte beverages, replenishing fluid and mineral loss.
Dehydration leads to muscle fatigue and a feeling of ‘hitting the wall’ during exercise or even day-to-day activities. Staying hydrated not only lubricates our joints, but water aids the transport of oxygen to our muscles.
Our Heart Health
Dehydration forces the heart to work harder to circulate blood and oxygen throughout the body, affecting our heart health. When our bodies fatigue it can make daily tasks such as walking or climbing upstairs much more difficult.
Fluid, especially water is essential for nutrients to pass through the intestinal system and dehydration can result in constipation, which long-term may lead to digestion issues.
Being hydrated leads to clear thoughts and a sharper mental focus as it improves the blood and oxygen flow to the brain. Just a 1% drop in hydration decreases concentration and causes short-term memory problems.
Knowing this, it is super easy to stay hydrated during the summer heat and Pure Water Systems have you covered with a wide range of filters, purification systems and other products to ensure you are drinking enough good water.
By good water, we mean filtered water. Good health begins with good water, and water filters are the perfect solution for removing unpleasant taste and odour, and reducing contaminants from our drinking water while retaining healthy minerals.
With a Bench Top Water Filter you will always have clean, healthy water at the turn of a tap; it is easily DIY installed and will become the cornerstone of your kitchen.
The convenience of having filtered water on tap doesn’t just have to stop there, Pure Water Systems’ handy fridge bottles will conveniently store your filtered water in your fridge giving you perfectly chilled water when you need it.
The fridge bottles come in both stackable and slimline models which fit neatly into your fridge and are ideal for frequent household use.
These fridge bottles feature a convenient tap for pouring as well as an easy-grip handle making it a great partner for outdoor occasions such as picnics, camping trips and days out.
Pure Water Systems have the perfect solution to store and take your filtered water everywhere with you with the Oasis Water Bottle, a double-walled insulated drink bottle that is BPA-free and will keep your drinks cool for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours.
The stylish drink bottle is available in a variety of sizes and colours and eliminates the reliance on single-use plastic bottles which are not only expensive but are terrible for the environment with most ending up as landfill.
When we have busy lives, it is great to have cool, healthy, filtered water with us, but it is easy to get caught up and forget to drink. Pure Water Systems have this covered with the Ulla Hydration Reminder. Featuring a silicone band, Ulla is easily mounted to bottles, glasses or mugs in seconds and gives you an alert reminder throughout the day to take a drink.
Knowing how important it is to stay hydrated, now is the time to invest in the tools; a water filter, a fridge bottle, a stylish water bottle and a hydration reminder… we have your summer covered!
