    The Real Truth About Water

    There are some things I'm about to tell you about water that will not only blow your mind, but will also have an almost immediate impact on your energy.

    First - most of the advice you get about drinking water is dangerously wrong.

    No one really knows for sure exactly how much water you should drink, and the blanket advice we get is pure hogwash.

    For example ...

    "Drink 8 glasses a day."

    Now, that may look like sound advice, but further analysis shows it's an overly simplified "wives tail."

    To be more blunt: "8 glasses a day" is actually a well established urban legend.

    As recently revealed by the American Journal of Physiology, there is absolutely no scientific evidence to support the popular 8-glasses-a-day theory.

    Now, none of these scientists at AJP are saying we don't need water (that would be silly). It's just that these overly simplified platitudes are not helping anyone's health.

    What's needed is real scientific information and not half-truths.

    What we do know is that "8 glasses a day" by itself is not good advice.

    First, you need to drink water regularly throughout the day. Drinking 8 glasses in the morning and thinking you're "golden" for the day is actually dangerous.

    You should, in fact, hydrate every single hour.
    Many people who simply take up the habit of drinking a glass (or even half a glass - more about that in a minute) every hour notice their energy levels skyrocket.


    Because most of us are chronically dehydrated.

    You're tired all the time and you can't figure out why.

    Dehydration making you tired?

    You bet.


    ~Chronic fatigue


    ~Hair loss


    ~Low back pain


    And more ..

    Dehydration has been shown quite clearly to be linked to all of these. (Merck Manual of Health)

    OK, so you want to fix this ...

    What next?

    Before you start gulping down, you need to know that "how much" depends on a lot of factors.

    It depends on your body size, how much you exercise, the climate in which you live, and more ...

    Obviously if you live in a hot climate where you're sweating all the time (a lot of the sweat is invisible - you don't have to be dripping to be rapidly losing water all day long), you need more - a lot more.

    If you exercise even mildly - same thing.

    But there's something important here.

    You may think drinking more water by itself is enough, but if you drink too much you can actually "overdose" on water.

    It sounds crazy, but there was even a widely publicized case where people were "holding their wee for Nintendo Wii" for a radio contest.

    The contestants were ordered to drink a high volume of water and hold their "wee" for as long as they could.

    One of the contestants died as a result.

    True story.

    Too much water can harm you by either "water intoxication" (as the above Wii casulty, may she rest in peace) or by "electrolyte" imbalance.

    Ah, electrolytes ...

    Listen to this:

    See, the more water you drink, the more you need to replace your electrolytes.

    But before you go thinking you're going to need to purchase some expensive fancy "electrolyte replacement" sports drinks, here's the real deal:

    All you have to do is add a tiny pinch of sea salt to every gallon of filtered drinking water you drink and - voila! - you have all the electrolytes you need.

    Of course, the sports drink peddlers won't tell you that. They'd have to sell you a whole lot of sea salt to make the same profit off your back!

    Not bad, huh?

    If you were simply to apply what we have shown you so far is that you'd see a pretty significant bump in your energy.
