Facts that you always wanted
to know about water

This happens when you drink three liters of water a day 🤯☝🏼

Three liters of water with Water Sommelier Timo Bausch drinking

Water is essential for human life. We cannot live without water. It is necessary for many vital processes in the body, including transporting nutrients and oxygen to the cells, regulating body temperature, and removing waste products and toxins from the body.

I would like to show you some of the positive effects that drinking enough water can have on your body:

1. You will be more awake:

Water acts as a pick-me-up and boosts your metabolism. When you are tired, drink a large glass of water before reaching for coffee, tea, or energy drinks.

2. Your concentration increases:

Your brain is about 80 percent water. Every day, your body produces about 0.5 liters of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which your brain "swims" in. However, water is also lost every day, so it is important to keep the water in your brain in balance. Otherwise, it can cause problems concentrating, dizziness, and feeling tired.

3. Your skin looks great:

In fact, our largest organ is about 90% water. So when you drink too little water, your skin suffers. When water is lacking, the tissue is less nourished, dries out, and loses elasticity. Drinking plenty of water improves circulation and keeps your skin looking firm and elastic.

4. Your digestion is stimulated:

Your intestines need enough fluid to soften food and extract nutrients so they can be absorbed into your cells. Water is especially good for this because it has no calories and also contains helpful minerals such as sulfate and bicarbonate. For example, water with a high sulfate content (about 1,200 mg/liter) aids digestion, while bicarbonate can help with heartburn (see also here).

5. Your body gets rid of toxins:

Many pollutants that accumulate in our bodies from the environment can be more easily excreted by the kidneys with adequate hydration. Especially in the morning, it is important to flush the accumulated toxins from your body. That's why I recommend drinking half a liter of water right after getting up.

6. Your muscles can grow:

Muscles are also about 80 percent water. If you do not provide your body with enough water, your entire metabolism suffers, which has a negative effect on muscle growth, recovery and fat loss. This is because vitamins, proteins, fats, carbohydrates and other nutrients cannot be transported to the muscles and other organs. And without protein, you cannot build muscle. Tip: During exercise we lose especially sodium, calcium and magnesium. That's why mineral waters with a high mineral content are particularly suitable for sports (see also here).

7. Your joints are lubricated:

Water acts as a buffer and lubricant in the spaces between your joints. Cartilage is also mostly water. It is more elastic and cushions movement and impact when it is adequately hydrated. A lack of water, on the other hand, can lead to friction, pain, and long-term damage. Tip: In addition to plenty of water, bones need calcium. Some mineral waters contain 600 mg or more per liter. They are a great source of calcium (see some examples here).

As you can see, water plays a fundamental role in many areas of your body. That's why you want to make sure you're getting enough water. Three liters of water may seem like a lot. But if you divide it into six large glasses of 0.5 liters each, it's achievable 😉

If you are still struggling to meet your hydration needs, I recommend the PREMIUM DRINKING PLANNER: The 60-Days-Water-Challenge. It will teach you how to incorporate a drinking routine into your daily life in just 60 days.

And now, have fun drinking water...

Many greetings

About Timo Bausch

My fascination with mineral waters began in 2016 during my training as a Water Sommelier. Since then, I have been exploring the characteristics and diversity of water. In addition to pairing water with food, wine, coffee and other beverages, I offer the creation of water menus for restaurants and hotels. Furthermore, it is also important to me to draw attention to the importance of drinking water.
