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.
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.
