Are you robbing your body of the benefits from your nutritious food?
TRUTH IS - You can have a great diet, but without proper hydration your nutrients aren’t being broken down and transferred into your cells. This causes your body to miss the advantageous power of the nutrients you ingest.
Picture your cells. Each cell has a membrane. Your water intake directly affects the fluidity of your cell membrane. If the cell membrane is hard, the nutrients bounce off. However, if the cell membrane is fluid, the nutrients are easily transferred in to do their job!
Water also aids in digestion. The enzymes found in saliva, the basis of which is water, help break down food and liquid, dissolving them into minerals and nutrients to be used by the cells.
Two thirds of your body water is held within the cell. This water is responsible for a large number of metabolic reactions within the cell, creating an environment where fat burning magic happens!
Drink water to break down food and make the nutrients easily accessible to the cells for optimal living, maintaining a healthy weight, and superior energy!
Cheers to fat loss, living lean, and enjoying life!
