Water is needed by all the cells and organs in the body in order for them to function properly. It is also used to lubricate the joints, protect the spinal cord and other sensitive tissues, regulate body temperature and assist the passage of food through the intestines.
Although some of the water required by the body is obtained through foods with a high water content - soups, tomatoes, oranges - the majority is gained through drinking water and other beverages.
During normal everyday functioning, water is lost by the body, and this needs to be replaced. It is noticeable that we lose water through activities such as sweating and urination, but water is even lost when breathing.
Drinking water is the best source of fluid for the body. Beverages such as milk and juices are also decent sources of water, but beverages containing alcohol and caffeine, such as soft drinks, coffee and beer, are less than ideal due to having diuretic properties, meaning that they cause the body to release water.
Here at Fresh2o, our bottleless water coolers are water filtration systems and coolers all in one unit. This means you can eliminate the chemicals that are found in plastic water bottles that harm your body and the environment.

A machine that purifies water probably shouldn’t double as a fire hazard. So, Nestlé Waters has recalled 12,300 of its AccuPure floor standing filtration dispensers.
The units’ tendency to overheat can turn them from water dispensers to fire dispensers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice states there have been seven reports of units smoking or catching fire among the 15 reports of overheating.
Businesses leased or bought the AccuPure floor standing dispensers from Nestlé Waters from April 2011 through this past April. Those with model numbers HB215-3G or HW215-3G should unplug the appliances immediately. Nestlé Waters says it told customers to do that in early May by phone and letter. Now, they’re in the process of scheduling replacements.
Those wishing to be proactive can call Nestlé Waters at 844-895-9691 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern time, Mondays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern time Saturdays or go to the website.

Ever wake up in the middle of the night clutching your calf in pain? Often called a "Charlie Horse," this is just one type of cramp that could be prevented by being more hydrated. (Talk about leading a horse to water....)
Cramps are the involuntary tightening of a muscle that won't relax, occurring most often in the calf and thighs. The cause of muscle cramps is not exactly known, but is thought to be caused by many things such as overuse, injury, staying in one place to long, strain and of course from being dehydrated. Those in hotter climates or in just plain in warmer weather are more likely to get cramps during activity, as there is more fluid loss. Fluid comes into play here because fluid helps muscles contract and relax and also keep muscle cells hydrated. If there is an inadequate water supply, muscles will not work as good as they should, causing strain-- and then the cramps.
Also, those with muscle cramps may want to take a banana with their water. Potassium loss, often due to taking diuretics, can also cause muscle cramps. Potassium is also important for muscle contraction. A small amount of potassium is lost through your sweat, and a larger portion is lost through muscle activity. The diuretics, which also can cause dehydration, rob the body of this much-needed element. Calcium and magnesium also play a role in keep muscles in good shape. It is recommended that during work-outs, people drink water or sports drinks (to replace those electrolytes) at set intervals and also to not gauge the need for water by the thirst mechanism. Children especially are known to be less hydrated when doing something physical, and therefore may cramp easier. Encourage you child, even if they just are active in school gym class, to drink water during the activity.

How can I make cramps go away?
While drinking water during a cramp spasm will not help the cramp instantly fade away, staying hydrated regularly and especially during and after a work-out will keep those "Charlie Horses" and other cramps riding off into the sunset!
