When it comes to the 10 day Lemonade Master Cleanse, water intake becomes a big part of your daily routine if it hasn’t already been. I would argue that water is the most important ingredient of the recipe. The reason I use the term, “Secret Ingredient” in the title is because water is so often overlooked and under appreciated.
I have a confession to make…
I don’t know about you but I find it hard to keep up my daily intake of water. There seems to be a multitude of deterrents trying to purposefully keep me from drinking water. For me the number one enemy (better known as an excuse) of me getting my 8 glasses per day is the cost. Water can be expensive! Just the other day I purchased a 24 bottle case of water from a certain self checkout super market that will remain nameless, and the CRV alone was almost $ 2.00! If each member of my family drank our daily requirement, we’d go through that case in just over 2 days.
You and I may share this grip or maybe you have a different problem with water. At the end of the day most of the reasons we come up with are excuses as I said before. One of the many benefits of doing the Master Cleanse is that it forces you to drink more water. Below are some little know facts about water that I hope will encourage all of us to get serious about getting our daily allowance of water.
Your bones consist of 22% water
Most people don’t think of bones as organs, but it’s true. When we think of bones we think of the hard dry turkey bones left over from thanksgiving dinner. But living bones are like wood, with a porous honeycomb-like structure. They produce both white and red blood cells and store up minerals. Water is needed to aid the bones in all it’s functions.
Migraines can be caused by lack of water
Very seldom do people relate migraines with not getting enough water. To tell the truth this fact was news to me when I first learned about it. A very close friend of mine suffers from migraines and now that I think about it he doesn’t really strike me as a big water drinker. Without being flushed regularly with fresh water your body fills up with toxins and acid. For example, uric acid, which comes form a diet high in protein, can over stimulate the nerve endings, shooting pain signals to the brain. By drinking enough water you can dilute or even wash away high concentrations of these poisons before they can wreak havoc on your joints and nervous system.
This serves as a great segue into the next fact about water…
Water prevents kidney stones
In high enough concentrations, the same uric acid I just mentioned above, collects in the kidneys and forms kidney stones. In this case drinking water can prevent kidney stones from forming and rinse through the kidneys to help breakdown the stones so you can pass them easier.
I’m sure I’ve not even begun to scratch the surf of all the benefits of water. You can go online and do more research on your own. I encourage you to do so. The one thing I hope you take away from reading this article is the number of aliments water can alleviate without the need for expansive medications and treatments. The Master Cleanse has been praised for it’s ability to promote weight loss, boost vigor and vitality, but I wonder how much of the credit belongs to water?
