“Are you drinking at work?”

A latest report into keeping dehydrated at work
86% of respondents believe that they should be drinking five or more glasses of water a day, yet only 13% actually are.

46% of respondents are drinking only one or two glasses of water a day at work.

64% of companies reported that men don’t drink as much water at work as women; instead they turn to tea, coffee and soft drinks; they also tend to be less health conscious than women, and not as aware of the health benefits of drinking water.

“The number one trigger for daytime fatigue is lack of water,” says Ken Buckley, Director of Healthworks Corporate. “2% loss of body water brings on symptoms of dehydration which includes increased heart rate, and affects motor control, decision making and concentration.”

“Drinking seven to eight glasses of water a day is ideal and while 53% of respondents agree, it’s not being put into practice in the workplace,” says Buckley.

Convenience was cited as a major factor in reminding people to drink water regularly, with companies that provide their employees with a water solution reporting higher consumption.

Drinking water is important for weight loss

Water is important to every body, and especially for those who are trying to loose weight by dieting:

• When dieting, initial weight loss is largely due to a loss of water, and you need to drink an adequate amount of water in order to avoid dehydration.

• The process of burning calories requires an adequate supply of water in order to function efficiently; dehydration slows down the fat- burning process.

• Burning calories creates toxins (think of the exhaust coming out of your car), and water plays a vital role in flushing them out of your body.

• Dehydration causes a reduction in blood volume; a reduction in blood volume causes a reduction in the supply of oxygen to your muscles; and a reduction in the supply of oxygen to your muscles can make you feel tired.

• Water helps maintain muscle tone by assisting muscles in their ability to contract, and it lubricates your joints. Proper hydration can help reduce muscle and joint soreness when exercising.

• A healthy (weight loss) diet includes a good amount of fibre. But while fibre is normally helpful to your digestive system, without adequate fluids it can cause constipation instead of helping to eliminate it.

• Drinking water with a meal may make you feel full sooner and therefore satisfied eating less. Note, however, that drinking water alone may not have this effect. In order to feel satiated (not hungry), our bodies need bulk, calories and nutrients.

How much water you actually need depends on your weight, level of activity, the temperature and humidity of your environment, and your diet. Your diet makes a difference because if you eat plenty of water-dense foods like fruits and vegetables your need to drink water will be diminished.

Drinking other liquids can also provide your body with a source of water, but note that diuretics cause your body to expel water. Diuretics include caffeinated drinks (coffee, tea and soda) and alcohol. When drinking diuretics, you need to drink more water to compensate.

When drinking alcohol, it is advisable to drink water along with it, as well as before and afterward, to help eliminate a hangover headache and feeling of tiredness.

Do not worry that drinking water will give your body a bloated look. There are a number of causes of water retention, including consuming too much salt. But drinking water is not one of them!

How much water should I drink when exercising?

From the regular gym-goer to an endurance athlete, these are the guidelines you should follow:

A humble glass of H2O may not be the most popular pre-workout tipple (caffeine rightly takes the crown there), but it’s certainly the most essential. A study published in the journal Sports Medicine found dehydration “consistently attenuates strength (by 2%), power (by 3%) and high-intensity endurance (by 10%).”

As a rule of thumb, drink a 250ml glass of water 30 minutes before you hit the gym to ensure your muscles are firing on all cylinders. Then follow that up with 500ml within 30 minutes of finishing. Deciding how much to sip mid-session is more subjective. “Around 500ml of water during the course of a one-hour workout is sensible,” says nutritional therapist Jo Scott-Dalgleish.

After 90 minutes moderate exercise, water is no longer enough. At this point, your glycogen stores are mere fumes and it’s time to start sipping electrolyte-rich sports drinks. For endurance athletes, managing minerals is exceptionally important and, although the concept of drinking too much water may seem strange, it can be dangerous.

Downing litres of water without replacing electrolytes can cause a condition called hyponatremia, which may lead to seizures, organ failure and even death. If you’re tackling long distance runs, ensure you have a tried-and-tested hydration strategy in place.

How Long does it take to install a Mains Fed, Point of Use Water Cooler?

Be be aware that Mains fed and  point of use are the same, just different wording is used within some industries.
You will be so surprised with the ease of this, a mains fed water cooler is connected directly to the mains water supply within your establishment.
With a filtered mains fed water cooler it reduces the chlorine, fluoride and earthy taste to your drinking water. The taste is vastly improved and you will be so surprised.
From having a Gorilla waterCooler, mains fed water cooler within your work space you will see other advantages: hydration in the work place, increased energy levels, less sick days for your business which helps with productivity I think you will agree?
After having our WRAS approved engineer complete a site survey report which is discussed with the above in mind. We will then return to our office to complete  a method statement and risk assessment on the install in hand. Once we do this, we will then process your requirements taking into account your needs.
On the agreed date we will action our approved WARS engineer to arrive to site and unload in a safe, manageably way.
A typical install involves temporarily turning off the water supply to the targeted area, a few mins in most cases. Insert a T-piece or saddle value before installing a install rail which consists of an isolator, non returning valve, pressure reducer and a water block leak detector.
From this point we run 15mm or 8mm flexi hose, using market leading John Guest push fittings into the back of the machine with clips to finish the jobs to a high professional finish.
Once this is all in place and to the WRAS agreed pipework installed finish. Gorilla WaterCoolers will place the Ebac manufactured Water Cooler or our increasing Marco Eco hot water boiler range to the agreed postion.

Water, The Ultimate Detox Tool

Powerful Water Detox Methods

It constitutes an intrinsic part of our daily life and we could not survive without it. Amongst its countless benefits to our health and our planet, WATER is the ultimate natural detox tool to the human body.

The recent Detox Craze has reached phenomenal proportions, with manufacturers frantically marketing products that promise instant cleansing and purification, in an attempt to fulfill – such an overwhelming market demand.

By highly publicizing their successful detox experiences, stars like Beyonce – amongst others – which hold a different advertised brand for the cameras every day – have contributed in making detox trendy.

This and other factors have made detox the health buzzword of the 21st century. It is now considered a necessary factor in the quest for optimal health, weight loss and well being.

Unfortunately, such proliferation, variety and availability of detox aids makes identifying the ideal personal detox program a daunting task.

Many cases and articles of detox gone wrong are published on the web, reminding the gullible and the unseasoned of the dangers of extreme detox, which clearly could be health-hazardous.

The quest for the ideal detox tool or program is on, with a mind-boggling array of products to choose from: Detox supplements, colon cleansing aids, detox foot baths and detox patches… The list is endless!

In our frantic search for the ultimate detox, we overlooked the ideal and most obvious detox aid. A natural resource that we are in physical contact with every single day of our life: Water.

NOTHING supports the body, cleansing and elimination capacity like Water; the most ancient and potent natural detox aid ever known to mankind.

Whether by drinking it, sweating or bathing in it, water has been used to expel toxins, and restore health since the dawn of humanity.

 

Drink Plenty of Water

We are all familiar with the dangers of: dehydration by now.

If the body is not sufficiently hydrated, the cells will draw water from the bloodstream, thus pressurizing and burdening the heart. Even mild dehydration prevents the kidneys from effectively purifying the blood.

When this happens, some of the kidney’s workload is passed on to the liver and other organs, and may cause them to be severely stressed.

Minor health conditions such as constipation, dry and itchy skin, acne, nosebleeds, urinary tract infections, coughs, sneezing, sinus problems and headache may develop as a consequence.

It is no secret that drinking 2 litres of water a day can dramatically improve your health, and the signs will be obvious:

Glowing complexion and clear skin, better immunity, better digestion, less aches and pains, weight loss, less cellulite, better concentration and renewed vitality and energy.

Most detox regimes recommend flooding the body with purified or filtered water and bottled at source water. Infusing the body with water will immediately stimulate your kidneys, liver and digestive systems (primary detox organs) functions.

It will boost your metabolism, which in turn accelerates toxin and fat elimination.

Water fasts are highly praised for cleansing, and are regularly practised by keen detox advocates. However, fasting is not to be taken lightly, and any fast longer than 48 hours should be medically supervised.

 

Conclusion

Detox is not – and never will be – an instant, magical fix. Detox is an ongoing process, which provides tremendous health benefits, that you can enjoy starting today – View our products page to start gaining bottled or mains feed filtered water: Click here to view our product range

A regular practice of a combination of the 3 -almost free- and completely safe water detox methods above is the only detox regime you will ever need to effectively eliminate toxins and fat, and enjoy a lifetime of radiant health.

Tips and Tricks: Hydration

Good hydration makes good sense as part of a healthy lifestyle. Most of us would agree this so please see some tips below that any

  1. Drink two litres of water per day.
  2. Start by drinking a glass of fresh water when you get up in the morning.
  3. If you are not used to drinking water regularly, try initially replacing just one of your other drinks a day with fresh water, increasing your consumption as the weeks go by.
  4. Ask for a glass of tap water to go with your coffee and tea in cafes.
  5. Drink a glass of water before and during each meal.
  6. Hot water with a piece of fruit in – like lemon, lime, orange etc.- often helps those who want a hot drink.
  7. Carry a bottle filled with chilled tap water with you whenever you leave the house.
  8. During exercise, drink at 10 to 15 minute intervals or think of it as a full glass every 30 minutes – drink slowly and drink early, it’s physically easier to do this when you are still feeling fresh.
  9. Keep a check on your urine. As a general guide to hydration, it should be plentiful, pale in colour and odourless.
  10. Ask for a jug of iced tap water with your meal when in restaurants and with your alcohol when in bars – good establishments will be happy to provide this.
