    Water Toxicity | Can You Drink too Much Water and How to Fix it if You Do

    Are you drinking too much water? Let's dive in deeper at http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com

    Want the Magnesium I Talked about?

    Sustained Release Magnesium: http://www.JigsawHealth.com

    Water consumption is critical to health.

    When we are born, 75% of our weight is water, falling to 55% when elderly.

    You often hear that you need to drink plenty of water, but can you drink too much water?

    You want to avoid dehydration, but you also want to maintain a healthy electrolyte balance.

    Electrolytes are nutrients present in your body that are involved in a wide range of functions, making sure that the electrical charges in our body work as they should. These include:
    Muscle contractions, even your heartbeat!
    Nerve function, such as within your brain - cognition is based on these nerve impulses
    Fluid balance

    They work through their positively and negatively charged ions, which signal nerve communication.

    Electrolytes are lost when you sweat and can fall out of balance if you consume too much or too little water.

    So how can you tell if your electrolytes are out of balance?

    Symptoms of an electrolyte imbalance include:
    Fatigue
    Muscle cramps, including abdominal cramping
    Headache
    Irregular heartbeat
    Lethargy
    Mood irregularities, such as irritability of confusion

    Kidneys play a crucial role in fluid balance in the body.

    If you consume water faster than the kidneys can excrete it, you can experience hyposmolarity.

    If you consume only water and no electrolytes, an electrolyte imbalance can occur.
    -If you drink water too quickly for your kidneys to dilute it, it will lead to diluted electrolytes in your blood
    -Most common during long periods of exercise or heat
    -Best to take electrolyte supplements of drink a liquid with electrolytes, such as coconut water.

    An imbalance can also occur when you get sick. If you have diarrhea you are excreting both water and electrolytes.

    The major electrolytes are sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphate and chloride.

    Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in our bodies.

    The standard American diet is lacking in many minerals, including magnesium.

    Low magnesium levels have been tied to many health concerns, including ADHD, migraines, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease. Also can cause muscle spasms and anxiety.

    Hard to determine how much magnesium you need as the recommended daily values vary, but the American diet has been steadily decreasing in the average amount of magnesium consumed - we are consuming only ⅓ to ½ of the magnesium we were consuming 100 years ago.

    Taking about 200 mg of magnesium plus eating whole foods such as leafy greens, nuts, fish and seeds can help you obtain sufficient magnesium.

    searcher, that is a Great article, thanks !!!

    For all these reasons & more, we drink 4 to 6 ounces of water 3 to 4 times during the day & a little at night.
    DeLauer mentions magnesium, I take it (magnesium malate) regularly & I believe, because our heart is a muscle, that it helps to prevent heart attacks.

    What he did not address, but danced around it, (Taking about 200 mg of magnesium plus eating whole foods such as leafy greens, nuts, fish and seeds can help you obtain sufficient magnesium.) was WHERE you get your food. We don't eat fast foods, very little canned foods, no prepared meals & seldom eat in restaurants. We think 80% of your food should come from the produce dept. of the store, 10% from the meat dept. & 10% from nuts, seeds & beans, these are general estimations & of course there are exceptions.

    Here is a cute little ditty:

    "You are what you eat",
    said a wise old man.
    "Egads, if that's true,
    I'm a garbage can" !
