March 22, 2020 is World Water Day. It’s an annual United Nations observance day that highlights the importance of fresh water and its sustainable management and promotes awareness about everything related to water. Whether you participate in celebratory local events, educational seminars or simply incorporate filtered, not bottled, water usage into your Active Wellness regimen, you can spread the word to help save Planet Earth.
Currently, the number one topic covered by global news media seems to be the coronavirus. Schools and businesses are shutting down, events are being canceled and people are self-quarantining. This creates a new level of mental and physical discomfort that promotes a feeling of helplessness. But there are basic things we can do daily to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Washing your hands frequently helps keep the virus at bay. But did you know that staying hydrated by drinking water throughout the day is another way to help prevent contracting the virus?
Some of the universities in California have temporarily halted in-person classes. They are sending out information about coronavirus to their students and one of the key points is to drink plenty of water. This is emphasized because even if the virus gets in your mouth, drinking water will wash it down into your stomach where the acid will kill the virus. If you do not drink enough water regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs through your mouth.
Water plays such an important role in helping to prevent contagion. Your immune system is the first defense against germs, viruses and free radicals. How can you keep that immune system operating at optimal levels? Water helps carry oxygen throughout the body to organs, tissues, and blood cells. Since blood is composed of more than 90% water, water feeds those carrier blood cells.1 Keep your immunity up by drinking plenty of water to help stave off infection. Staying hydrated helps your body naturally eliminate toxins that may cause illness.2
Lymphocytes are white blood cells located in the lymph nodes in the immune system. Their job is to detect foreign antigens and produce the antibodies to destroy the waste material, which keeps the immune function intact. Drinking water works like a waterfall that helps the body’s digestive system work efficiently to process nutrients while ridding it of waste. In other words, drinking plenty of water helps boost the immune system by preventing the buildup of toxins in the kidneys and the liver.
