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.

Dehydration isn’t just about feeling thirsty…

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.

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% dehydrated. By then, dehydration is already setting in and starting to impact how our mind and

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.

Water Wins!

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 …

Water Technology – Do Cacti Have the Answers?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On June 22, 2018 11:27 am

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.

Who’s a clever cacti?

Water Carefully…

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: Splitting Up Molecules

Posted by: Rhona Reid On June 20, 2018 10:42 pm

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.

Water science goes on and on…

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 …

In a Pinch: Have You Done the Pinch Test Today?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 24, 2018 12:00 pm

 
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?
