Why we need to properly hydrate ourselves.

Hydration is key, words that hang on the wall in front of me as I write.

Our body needs nourishment from food, as well as water everyday. Some might argue that we need hydration a lot more than food. But still most people are dehydrated without being aware of it. How can this be? And why do we need to properly hydrate ourselves? Let’s get into it.


Human bodies are made up of 70% of water, the brain and heart contain of 73% water, and the lungs are about made up of 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%. Meaning that we need to hydrate ourselves well.
But as the people of the 21st century, we want to know why we should drink more water, and maybe even add extra minerals into our water bottles. Which is why we will provide you a full list of benefits you may experience when you start drinking more water.

Brain health

Our brain contains about 73% water. This water helps the braincells communicate with each other and it carries the nutrients you eat towards the brain. Meaning that drinking enough water helps you to be sharp and stay focused. A hydrated brain is one that is flexible and creative, and one that can stay centered during stressful situations. The water in your brain also helps to clear out toxins to help is stay young and clean. 

Beautiful skin

First and foremost water hydrates our skin and makes it look bouncy and glowing.

But since the skin is made up of 64% water, it helps the healing process speed up as well as detox our skin to keep it clean and clear. Hydrated skin is also a powerful detox organ within our bodies. Meaning that when our skin is hydrated, the toxins that we hold within our bodies can be more easily be transferred outwards. Helping you stay clean within and without !

Stonger bones

Strong bones are bones that are packed with minerals and enough water. Through the water we drink minerals come in. These minerals are extremely important for strong bones, as they slow down the breakage of bones, help build up new bone marrow and bone cells. Minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium are all found in good water, and help you grow old with a strong frame.


Different water

Now that we know why water is so important, we would like to tell you more about the different types of water. And this might come to you as a shock, but not all water is the same. And not all water has the same hydrating effect. 

The main difference we want to talk about today is minerals.

Water contains a set of different minerals, or so it used to, and these minerals are what are bodies use to absorb the water ( hydrate )  and hold on to it. A prime example of mineral rich water is spring water, that runs through nature and is alive. While this spring water would be the best and most efficient type of water for us, most of us don’t have daily access to a spring.

The difference between spring water and tap water is large, so we will keep it to minerals. The main difference between tap water and spring water is that tab water is filtered and cleansed from bad bacteria, most heavy metals and oils, but through this cleaning method, most minerals are gone to waste. And as a result, we now drink more clean water, that lacks in minerals.


An easy way for all of us to re-mineralize our water is through adding Celtic Salt.

Now this may sound strange at first, and it may taste strange when you add to much too.

But Celtic Salt contains more than 17% of trace minerals, as well as a lot of magnesium, zink, iron and many more. Celtic Salt will bring back all the minerals that are lost, and help you to rehydrate once again.

Adding 1/4 a teaspoon of Celtic Salt into 1 Liter of water will give you the right balance. Just fill a large bottle of water to work or school, and see your focus and attention improve massively.
