One of the most surprising things many of our clients discover during their initial bio-impedance body composition reading at Thrive is that they're dehydrated. Yes, even those who dutifully drink their jug of water every day and believe they're well hydrated often learn they're falling short. But why do we focus on hydration as part of our truBody sculpting and muscle toning program? Simply put, hydration plays an essential role in achieving the best possible results. We conduct regular body composition check-ins throughout our clients' journey to ensure they're on track. We work very closely with our clients, taking their treatment outcomes as seriously as they do. But let's dive deeper. How does the body hydrate, and why does it matter? The human body hydrates by absorbing water and the essential minerals it contains. These minerals help regulate everything from our nerve function to our muscle health. Unfortunately, regular tap water or even most filtered water can be lacking in these crucial minerals, as the filtration process often removes them. Drinking filtered water without replenishing these minerals can leave you dehydrated even if you're drinking the recommended amount of water each day. That's why at Thrive, we encourage you to switch to mineral-rich water, such as that offered by the SantaVia filtration system, a local provider from Delta, BC. If you prefer to filter your water, we recommend re-mineralizing it to ensure you're getting the full benefits.
(You can try the SantaVia filtered and PH Balanced water at your next visit to Thrive). The benefits of getting mineral-rich hydration are far-reaching. Maintaining a hydration level of over 45% body water is necessary for health. It makes up our lymph, our body's natural filtration system, helping to remove toxins and waste. Proper hydration boosts brainpower, improving cognitive function and mood. Plus, it keeps our skin looking and feeling its best, reducing signs of aging and keeping it supple and radiant. So, the next time you reach for your water flask, remember it's not just about the amount of water you drink, but the quality of it as well. Hydrate to thrive and see the transformative impact it has on your overall wellness and aesthetic journey.
