So, we recently talked about the symptoms that young healthy women experience because of dehydration, but what about the dehydration symptoms found in men?
The Difference Between Men and Women
The clinical trials that we mentioned in our last blog post were carried out on both men and women, but the results were published separately. Interestingly, the men in this fascinating study showed several similarities to the women’s study, but also a couple of surprising differences.
Just like in the women’s clinical test conditions, the men were young, healthy and fairly active. The test results of mildly dehydrated males were compared to the results of fully hydrated test subjects.
Be honest…have you been a little snappy with anyone lately? Maybe you felt your patience being stretched a little bit or you felt as though you can’t concentrate on an important task? Dehydration in women is a big problem!
Mood Control and Mental Focus
If you’ve encountered low-key symptoms relating to your mood or cognitive abilities, you could try drinking a little more water – particularly hydrogen-rich alkaline water from Tyent water ionizers.
A fascinating study from the University of Connecticut Human Performance Laboratory found that even mild dehydration causes headaches, lack of mental focus, and the ability to control our mood.
“Our thirst sensation doesn’t really appear until we are 1% or 2% …
The results of the nationwide survey confirm that carbonated soda continues to decline, marking a further loss in soda’s market share for the 13th consecutive year.
More and more people ditching sugary, chemical-laced soda for healthier beverages is positive news in many respects. Drinking water is obviously great, as there’s no better way to hydrate – but this article should be read with a cautionary footnote.
The increased consumption of bottled water is almost certainly linked to the constant news stories about …
What’s the newest advancements in water technology? Can we talk about cacti for a moment? Those iconic, prickly stalwarts of countless movies and cartoons depicting dry, airless deserts are amazing things and we don’t use the word lightly. Like any other living thing, cacti need water to live. As they usually live in parched, arid conditions, cacti have developed incredible systems in order to survive.
Those prickles are actually leaves, modified to prevent roaming animals from eating the plant, but also to conserve water. Their roots are shallow but spread widely, in order to grab as much rainfall as they can, given the opportunity. Some varieties of cacti can soak up 200 gallons of …
Water science is more advanced than ever before. You might have noticed in the news that scientists have made a breakthrough in identifying a way to separate the two types of water molecule for the first time.
Remember This From School?
Two types of a water molecule? Yes! To briefly revisit our high school chemistry notebooks on water science, water is comprised of two hydrogen atoms and a single, lone oxygen atom, forming a kind of V-shape.
Maybe Not This…
Every single water molecule on the planet is either a para-water molecule or an ortho-water molecule. To distill vast amounts of complex particle physics into the briefest of summaries, the difference is that the …
So, we know that greens are good for us and why; but what makes the sunny side of the fruit bowl so nutritious?
Sunny and Scrumptious!
So much of our favorite fresh, delicious produce comes in the glorious colors of the sunrise and sunset. From the cheery, zingy looks of citrus and the warm hue of mango and peaches, to the rich autumnal glow of squash and bright buttery corn — it all looks and tastes great!
What’s in Them?
So what exactly is packed into these brilliantly-colored foods that makes them so good for us?
Did you know that there is a really easy way to find out whether your body is properly hydrated or not?
Give Yourself a Pinch!
Your skin’s elasticity is a brilliant indicator of how well hydrated you really are. To test, pinch the skin on the back of your hand and let go. If it snaps back into place and returns to normal immediately, then congratulations, you’re hydrated!
If it doesn’t and your skin maintains the “pinched” shape for a couple of seconds, then don’t ignore it; you need to drink more water. If your skin – your body’s biggest organ – isn’t properly hydrated, then what about the vital internal organs that you can’t see?
Three students from Washington DC, Bria Snell, India Skinner and Mikayla Sharrieff, collectively known as S3 Trio, have been named as the only East Coast finalists in the NASA “OPSPARC” Challenge for coming up with an innovative way of cleaning up lead-contaminated drinking water.
S3 Trio at Work
The all-female team identified that water from public school fountains often contained impurities, putting the health of students at risk.
“Our product will purify public school systems’ water by detecting impurities such as chlorine, copper, and bromine.” ~ S3 Trio
The dynamic 11th graders opted for a community project, working on the serious health issues posed …
It’s no secret that some of your favorite entertainers prefer to drink Tyent Water to any other type. But what makes them choose to install a Tyent water ionizer rather than other brands?
Just like we did with some of our sports heroes, we asked three of them, and they told us!
Roger Daltrey, Founder and Lead Singer, “The Who” With a brand new studio album in the offing, Roger Daltrey hasn’t stopped rocking yet, despite a career spanning over 50 years. One of the secrets of his professional longevity? A Tyent water ionizer!
“I now take a Tyent water purifier [ionizer] on the road with me.” ~ Roger Daltrey
