Feeling thirsty? That means your body is already dehydrated. So how much water do you actually need?
As a rule of thumb, work out what 1 litre (around 30 fluid oz) of water per 25 kilo’s (55 pounds) of body weight is for you. Think of this as a base quantity, if you are doing strenuous exercise, particularly in a hot environment you will need more.
You can get water from the food you eat, especially if you’re eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. However, remember that you’ll actually require additional water to aid your digestive system.
Can drinking water help you slim? It depends on how you look at it. Given that hunger pangs can really be thirst in disguise, if you properly hydrate your body’s trillions of cells you’ll be less tempted to snack. Also, drinking a glass of water before eating fills you up so you eat smaller meals.
If you become dehydrated your body goes into “protection” mode. When denied any vital nutrient your body cries out for help, although these signals are often misunderstood (like thirst disguised as hunger). If you are dehydrated your body may slow down your metabolism in an effort to retain as much water as possible for survival. This slows down your fat burning which make it more difficult to lose weight.
So, the answer is to drink plenty of water (of course, pure filtered water is best). How do you do that? Like I’ve said in other posts it’s not really too difficult. Try these tips:-
Drink 1 glass when you wake up.
Drink 1 glass after you clean your teeth after breakfast
Drink 1 glass mid morning
Drink 1 glass before lunch
Drink 1 glass with lunch
Drink 1 glass mid afternoon
Drink 1 glass when you get home from work
Drink 1 glass before dinner
Drink 1 glass with dinner
Drink 1 glass after you clean your teeth in the evening
I also leave a glass of filtered water in my bathroom overnight, so I can drink it if I get up during the night.
If you find water boring, add a squeeze of lemon or lime juice.
Be kind to our planet – use a water filter and fill your own bottles (preferable glass) instead of buying water in plastic bottles.
Reduce the quantity of processed foods you consume. There are hidden sugars and fats, plus lots of chemical additives you’ll want to avoid. Read labels – if you need a science degree to understand the ingredients you probably shouldn’t eat it.
Reduce your salt intake, use only natural quality salt which is chemical free and contains minerals.
Add flavor with herbs, spices or lemon juice instead of adding salt.
Reduce you fat intake. Consume only healthy fats. Learn more about dietary fats
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Reduce the quantity of meat you consume. Look at the portions on your plate – make sure vegetables make up 75%.
The human body is mostly water trapped inside the fragile walls of cells.
We drink water to maintain the optimum level of hydration in our bodies, to flush the toxins out and cleanse the body, to cool off, to keep our joints lubricated and to assist in the food digestion process. Although they don’t realize it, most people are suffering from chronic dehydration.
The minimum daily recommended water intake is 2 liters, because this is how much water the body uses throughout the day through perspiration, respiration, urination and other bodily functions. Without replenishing lost water, the body goes into dehydration mode and all functions start to suffer. Water is essential to life and proper bodily function.
Your the metabolism is dependent on water to work properly. Without enough water, the process of breaking food down and converting it to energy slows down dramatically, which means that too few calories are burnt and little weight is lost. Not drinking enough water can be compared to “running on fumes” and if you’re dieting and you seem to have hit the plateau, then you are probably not drinking enough water. When the metabolism slows down, weight loss slows down even more dramatically, especially since exercising becomes less effective as the body’s energy levels diminish.
Water also plays an important part in the process of digestion and elimination of toxins. Not drinking enough water is a one-way ticket to constipation and a host of other problems of the intestines. Poor digestion means that you will not get enough energy from the food you’re eating. This will prompt the body to ask for more food and this is how the weight loss process stops and the weight gain process begins. A dehydrated body sends out fake hunger pangs, thus tempting you to forget about the diet and eat more food than you should. Thirst is often mistaken for hunger.
Not to mention that water is also a good filler. If you want to eat less food, drink a tall glass of water half an hour before every meal. The water will fill a large part of your stomach and the body will be content to feel that the stomach is not empty. This is not idle speculation, but a sound advice whose effectiveness can be confirmed by many dietitians and weight loss experts. Nobody can overeat with half of the stomach filled with water, your brain will signal to you: “Seems like we’re almost full. We don’t need that much food, so cut it short this evening”.
Keep in mind that in order to reap the benefits of drinking enough water, you will want to spread the intake throughout the day. Don’t drink 2 liters of water all at once because the body will simply flush the excess and a lot of it will simply be wasted. Also, you don’t need to restrict yourself to water. Fruit juices, tea and coffee count as liquids that can be used by the body for hydration, although fruit juice has lots of sugar and calories so it’s probably best not to overdo it. Alcohol is out of the question, because alcohol has the opposite effect on the body. Don’t be afraid that drinking a lot of water will make you retain fluid. It’s dehydration, not abundance, which forces the body to hang on to what it has.
If you find water a bit boring, add a squeeze of lemon juice to each glass – it helps cleanse your system.
Of course it’s preferable to drink filtered, purified water using a system like the Hexagon water filter.
Water – an Essential Element for Cell Rejuvenation
Water is a very important nutrient in cell rejuvenation and optimum health.
Put simply, without water, nothing lives. Water is your energy source, like your body’s cash flow. Water energizes each cell of your body, giving them energy to live and adequate hydration increases the efficiency of your immune system, preventing damage to your DNA. Water powers and electrifies our brain functions and is needed for the efficient manufacture of all neurotransmitters, including serotonin. Water enhances the “mind/body” connection, reducing stress, anxiety, depression and helps maintain normal sleep.
Water is essential for your body’s digestion, metabolism and assimilation of food, and is a must for releasing energy from food.
Water is your body’s transportation mechanism, allowing movement of nutrients through your body. And water facilitates removal of toxic waste from different parts of the body taking it to the liver and kidneys for disposal. Water also prevents constipation and aids in weight loss.
Water is your body’s principal lubricant, it’s present in the joint spaces and spinal discs and helps prevents arthritis and back pain. Water dilutes the blood and prevents it from clotting during circulation, reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Proper hydration improves your skin and eyes.
We cannot store water, so we must continually replenish our supply by drinking pure, fresh energized water regularly.
Not just any water will do. Why? Water can contain toxins which add to your toxin load rather than eliminating toxins from your body. So what can you do about it? Drink pure and energized Hexagon water.

How is the HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier different from HexagonTM Hi-Energy Structured Water System?
HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier is a newly developed countertop water purifier, made according to the same underlying principles as the HexagonTM Hi-energy Structured Water System. Easy-to-install, this handy countertop water purifier delivers the same benefits as the HexagonTM Hi-energy Structured Water System – clean, health drinking water which optimizes hydration of the body and enhances bodily functions.
This unit will appeal to those who were interested in HexagonTM Hi-energy Structured Water System but held back from making a purchase due to its price. The HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier has been developed with both function and affordability in mind. With this unit, everyone can benefit from having clean, naturally, enhanced water for better health and vitality.
Both the units have a capacity of 10,000 liters, equivalent to 1 year’s usage (depending on usage volume and quality of in-coming water supply) and produces very similar quality water. The HexagonTM Hi-Energy Structured Water System gives Living Water with a cluster size of 42.3Hz while the HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier delivers π-Water with an average cluster size of about 48Hz. Both Living Water and π-Water are very similar to our Body’s Water, which means that both Living Water and π-Water can be easily absorbed and used directly by our cells for bodily functions.
How does HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier compare to similar countertop water filters in the market?
Most conventional countertop filters simple/basic use just carbon (some may also have a ceramic filtration medium) which only offers the basic filtration necessary for clean drinking water. They remove sediment, chlorine, and a few other chemical contaminants in water.
The HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier does much more than that! Combining granular activated carbon, ceramic and a host of other hi-tech filtration media plus natural mineral and magnetic stones, this 8-Stage π water treatment purifies and enhances water, rendering it clean, healthful and great tasting too.
It can filter up to 10,000 liters of water (equivalent to about 1 year’s supply for an average household of 5 people) – at least double the filtration capacity of the normal ones.
Converting to HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier is naturally the wiser choice – more economical and value for money too.
Why are we introducing this HexagonTM 8-Stage πWater Purifier unit? Very few people (estimated 5% to 10% of people / group surveyed) are willing to pay for a water filter that costs USD202 (the price of our HexagonTM Hi-energy Structured Water System) and above, which means most people (90% and above) are still using ordinary conventional counter top filters that half the price or less. This group is our target market.
For those who own a conventional filter that needs cartridge filters to be replaced twice a year, it’s time to change or switch to the HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier, which only requires a cartridge replacement once a year.
This HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier is for everybody NOW!
The HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifierproduces good quality π-water that is considered the most ideal water for the body. It enhances detoxification and elimination of waste, and contributes to overall good health. π-water is much better for you than the water produced by many more expensive filters.
Can I drink the filtered π water direct from this HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier unit?
YES. TheHexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier gives not only clean, but health-giving water on demand, all day, every day. Boiling water before consumption has long been practiced to offer consumers peace-of-mind or assurance that the water is free from bacteria, but in actual fact, municipal treated water has been chlorinated to ensure that bacteria is not present in our tap water. So, the boiling of water does not necessary eliminate bacteria. Instead, what is required is a good filtration and purification system, which will remove all the other contaminants present in our tap water that are hazardous to health like chlorine, heavy metals, rust, lead and many others. Of course you can boil the water for cooking and beverages if you wish.
Can I use the HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier with untreated underground water?
Untreated underground water contains an extremely wide spectrum of contaminants. This makes it even more important to have a HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier unit, as the unit will improve the condition and quality of the untreated underground water. For this type of water, it is best to BOIL the filtered water before drinking.
Don’t be alarmed if you notice any whitish specks in the filtered water after boiling. These are specks of calcium, which are not harmful in any way. If the water supply comes from a certain area that has limestone-based soil or that has surrounding areas with calcium-rich soil, then the water will also contain very high calcium levels. The HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier system does not remove calcium.
If the filtered water has a peculiar smell and tastes different, what should I do?
This change in smell and taste could happen if the unit is kept unused with water contained inside for a few weeks. In this case, it is best to remove the cartridge and drain out the leftover water. All you need to do is rinse the casing and the cartridge, re-install and then let the water run through the unit for at least 15 minutes before resuming usage.
Can I run hot water through the HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier unit?
No! Hot water will affect the Ceramic Filter and the Carbon Filter in the system, compromising their efficiency and efficacy.
Is the HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier unit suitable for all faucets?
The HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier unit comes with 3 different types of adaptors to fit more than 80% of the most common types of faucets. If yours is very unique, a plumber may be required to help perform some simple adjustments to your pipe fittings. Otherwise, it is very easy to install – all you need to do is literally screw it on and use.
I already have an outdoor filter (or point-of-entry filter), do I still need the HexagonTM 8-Stage π Water Purifier? YES. Outdoor filters only remove suspended particles and sediment which cause the water to be cloudy and murky. It does not remove the harmful chemical contaminants present in the water.
