As we all know, water plays an important role in our lives. It is the source of life and one of the most important material resources indispensable for human survival and development. Human life is inseparable from water for a moment, water is the most important material that human life needs.
When our intake of water is not enough, the blood in our body will become too viscous, toxic garbage cannot be effectively removed, and it will also greatly increase the burden on the kidneys, liver and other organs. People cannot eat food for a few days or even 1 to 2 weeks, but they cannot drink water for a few days. Once the body loses 20% of its water, life cannot be maintained.
There are many bottles for drinking water on the market, and there are bottles of various textures. Everyone must be puzzled why we advocate drinking water in glass bottles. Because from a health point of view, the glass is actually the most suitable for drinking water.
The glass does not contain organic chemicals. When people drink water or other beverages from the glass, they don’t have to worry about the chemicals being drunk into their stomachs. Although some cups are very colorful and beautiful, in fact, there are huge hidden dangers in those bright paints. When the cups are filled with boiling water or beverages with high acidity and alkalinity, the lead and other toxic heavy metal elements in these pigments are It is easy to dissolve in liquids. People who drink liquids with chemical substances will cause harm to the human body. Plasticizers are often added to plastics, which contain some toxic chemicals. When hot or boiling water is filled in a plastic cup, the toxic chemicals are easily diluted into the water. And there are many gaps in the internal microstructure of the plastic, which hides dirt.
Do you think the glass bottle has only health benefits? Of course not, it also has the following advantages:
The glass bottle is easy to keep clean, and will not lose transparency like plastic by washing or infusing a fruit. They can be sterilized at high temperatures in the dishwasher without worrying about them melting or degrading. Eliminate potential toxins while maintaining the structure and integrity of the glass bottle.
The glass bottle will not change the taste of the liquid. If you use a plastic bottle, the taste of the juice you drank before will stay in the bottle, and you will have a juice taste when you use it to drink water.
Whether hot or cold, glass bottles can keep liquids at a stable temperature more effectively than plastics. Glass can be used for liquids other than water without absorbing peculiar smell, smell or color. This means you can use a glass carafe for hot tea in the morning and the same water bottle for refreshing cold water in the afternoon.
Glass can be recycled endlessly, and it can be used continuously or without a landfill. Most plastic bottles end up in landfills or water sources. Even recycled plastic materials may not necessarily pass through the entire recycling process, which further complicates the ability of plastics to become sustainable materials. Of the 30 plastics available, only 7 are generally accepted for recycling. On the other hand, all glass is recyclable, and the only criterion for sorting glass is its color. In fact, most glass manufacturing uses recycled post-consumer glass, which is crushed, melted, and made into new products.
Of course, we should not drink water only when we feel thirsty. When we feel thirsty, our body is already dehydrated! Don't rely on the thirst mechanism to tell us when to drink water. If we fail to consume the required amount of fluid every day, it will have a negative impact on our body.
Dehydration not only causes chapped lips and a feeling of thirst-we also experience these side effects and more:
1. Dry mouth
No water means no saliva. If you don't drink enough water, you will have difficulty speaking, swallowing or even breathing. Insufficient saliva production can also cause bacteria to accumulate on your tongue, teeth, and gums, which can lead to bad breath. Carry a filter bottle with you to prevent bad breath and dry mouth.
When you feel thirsty and exhausted, you may experience severe headaches. In addition to persistent headaches, dehydration can also cause irritability, depression, and mental decline.
3. Dull skin
Even if you try to hide it, everyone will know that you are dehydrated because it will show up on your face! Water can moisturize and plump skin cells to brighten your skin, while lack of water can cause dryness, flaking, fine lines and poor overall skin health. No skin care product can replace water-if you want bright, beautiful skin, you need to stay hydrated.
Water keeps stool soft, makes it easier to pass through the digestive tract, and promotes good digestion and regular bowel movements. When you do not drink enough water, your body may need to absorb water from the stool to compensate for the loss of water, resulting in harder and harder stools.
5. Weight gain
Your body may confuse thirst with hunger, which may cause you to suddenly want to eat sugary foods such as chocolate, candies and biscuits to accumulate energy. As a result, you gain weight while dehydrated. If you crave sugar or suddenly feel hungry, drink some water to prevent you from becoming too hungry.
When summer comes, let's drink water in glass bottles together.
