What water is good for health

Nutritionist Tatyana Yakovleva recalls that compliance with the drinking regime is one of the most important stages in maintaining the health of the body. It's no secret that water is the basis of life of any living being. That is why it is so important to form the habit of drinking water. The recommended norm is 30 ml per 1 kg of weight, if your weight is more than 100 kg, then the daily norm of liquid is no more than three liters.

What characteristics should the water we drink have? If you use bottled water, I would draw your attention to the fact that it is not stored in plastic containers. Therefore, when you choose water on the shelves of the store, it is better to give preference to glass packaging. It is also important to remember that warm water is absorbed better than cold water. Every morning it is recommended to start with a glass of warm water with lemon juice or natural apple cider vinegar, preferably 30 minutes before breakfast.

Other characteristics of "ideal water" include the following indicators:

  • physical, chemical and bacteriological purity;
  • mineralization less than 1000 mg/l;
  • acid-base balance pH 7.5;
  • redox potential negative (-100 or more)
  • high fluidity without a film on the surface;
  • the absence of heavy isotopes of hydrogen (deuterium).
