How Water Aids the Body in Removing Toxins

We all hear about toxins all the time and it’s kind of creepy to think we have these things in our bodies that need to be removed. Toxins and their removal are generally very misunderstood by most people, and they are not a scary thing at all, in fact, they are perfectly normal as everyone has them as they are a part of your body's intake of food and oxygen. Our bowels dispose of toxins from the digestive system and the liver disposes of toxins from our blood and helps other organs to function properly.

So Is That The Problem Solved?

Not quite, when our bodies are overloaded with toxins, and generating too many or aren’t eliminating them effectively they can build up and start to cause health issues. At this point, it’s worth starting a detox program or just giving our bodies a little extra help to get rid of the excess toxins.

The issue is that coffee, tea, sports drinks and soft drinks cause more problems than just a sugar high, they take more actual real water to flush these fluids from your system leaving you ultimately more dehydrated than when you started. Plus, many of these drinks contain actual toxins and unnatural ingredients on top.

The key to detoxification is knowledge: understanding the link between feeling below par and toxic, knowing where toxins come from and ultimately knowing what you can do to help your body detox. Drinking pure water is instrumental when it comes to detoxification.

How Does Water Help Remove Toxins?

Water helps the body flush toxins and waste from the body and transports nutrients to where they are required. The body doesn’t use tea or cola to do that. Water prevents the colon from drying out which causes constipation, and is why doctors always recommend drinking more water as it softens stools and lubricates bowel walls.

Our kidneys remove waste products from the blood whilst removing toxins from urine at the same time. They also remove water-based toxins that come from the liver too. None of this is really possible without enough water and most of us don’t drink enough water. We should all drink 1 litre of water for every 22kgs of body weight each day. Drinking a glass before bed and as soon as you wake up is also important due to the timing. Adding a few slices of lemon to three to four glasses in each part of the day and you’re there! Lemon is excellent as it not only adds flavour but it has an alkalising effect in the digestive system which helps balance your body’s pH. 

The purer the water you drink, like Saka Water then the more help your body gets. 

There’s Water, Then There’s Saka Water

Whilst most of us have drinkable tap water, tap water has many questionable chemicals and toxins in it, and it varies not only from state to state. Government regulations are fairly broad and Australian tap water (like most countries) certainly isn’t the purest.

Some people are sensitive to fluoride or chlorine or other additives, none of which aid the body's detoxification process, in fact, they slow it down as these ingredients also have to be processed. Yes, tap water is better than cola but it still isn’t as good as Saka Water for helping your body detoxify at its optimum.

Drinking pure water like Saka Water helps your body to detoxify itself better.  Saka water has won several awards for its taste and purity and many of our customers report health benefits from switching to Saka for their drinking water. It has a great taste, it's perfectly pH balanced at 8.22 and we have bottle sizes for every situation. Pure water is the number one way to maintain a healthy body so why not help your body by switching to Saka Water today?

Detoxing is an ongoing process and doesn’t end but switching to Saka Water will certainly help and your body will thank you for it.
