Staying Hydrated This Summer

signs of dehydration Being in the Army, I have learned a lot about the importance of hydration, the signs of dehydration and I have even witnessed the astounding effects dehydration can cause on the human body.

In fact, research conducted has shown that over 75 percent of all Americans live in a chronic state of dehydration, although we know we are supposed to drink water and maintain hydrated we often fail to do so.

Our bodies live, and thrive on water as it makes up over 60 percent of what we are, without it, our bodily functions can be harmed, and in some cases even stalled.

SIGNS OF DEHYDRATION

  • INCREASED THIRST: Some people believe that drinking water only when you feel thirsty will suffice and keep you hydrated. Unfortunately, this is not the case. In fact, thirst (whether mild or sever) is a sign that dehydration has already set in.
  • DRY MOUTH: This occurs as your body fails to create more/enough saliva to maintain you healthy. In fact, the production of saliva is directly affected by the amount of water you drink.
  • TIRED, AND SLEEPYNESS: Have you ever felt dizzy and sleepy out of nowhere? Well this is a way that the human body attempts to use less water, and therefore makes you feel like resting or sleeping to conserve fluids.
  • HEADACHE: This is especially common in the summer time, here’s what happens: When the body is dehydrated, the brain can temporarily contract or shrink from fluid loss. This mechanism causes the brain to pull away from the skull, causing pain and resulting in a dehydration headache.

 

How do you avoid or fix dehydration? By becoming and remaining hydrated! There are many ways to do this. Contrary to popular belief, water is not the only way. In fact, a lot of your liquid intake can be achieved through certain foods like greens, fruits, and even other beverages. With the best way to combat dehydration and to prevent it in these hot summer months, is by drinking water. Although there isn’t a certain required amount, doctors say you should drink enough to have to urinate every 3 to 4 hours. Mineral and nutrient intake is also an important factor, as water with a higher nutritional value is better for replacing electrolytes and nutrients lost in daily activity. This makes our natural spring water he perfect summer beverage for maintaining the whole family hydrated. Plus, with our custom labels and our easy-to-use custom designer, you can help motivate yourself to drink more!

4 Tips to Enhance Your 4th of July Celebration

Well, today is July 3rd, and that only means one thing about tomorrow—It’s Independence Day!

We love celebrations here at Spring Water Promotions, especially celebrating the fourth of July. Whether it I by hosting a gathering, attending a gathering, just spending the day with family, or even by being brave enough to venture out into the open water of Lake Lanier.4th of july

So, this year we decided to get together and come up with some tips for this year’s incoming celebration based on our previous (good, bad, and ugly) experiences!

  1. PLANNING—Whatever you do, plan ahead, as nothing is worse than running out of food, drinks, or space for your guests. Plan by creating an event using a social media platform such as “Facebook”, invite guests, request and RSVP so you can also plan accordingly.
  2. SAFETY—A large part of the annual celebration is the usage of fireworks, be sure to utilize your best judgement, and follow all laws and regulations involved with fireworks, as they are beautiful, but dangerous. I remember last year’s celebration at a neighbor’s party, the fireworks fell over, and we were all running away from the fallen fireworks. If you are hosting a BBQ then remember to take precautions for children and food safety. Water safety is often overlooked, if venturing out on a lake, go early, set up your spot, and enjoy your day, plan on having a designated boater or plan to stay out on the water. Don’t forget, it isn’t you that we are worried about it’s the other boaters!
  3. Hydrate—Remember, July is the dead middle of Summer, what does that mean? It means that generally it is very hot, and in Georgia the air is humid and thick, this means it is even more important to drink WATER. Yes, soda and juices will help you stay hydrated, but water is key, make sure it has nutrients and minerals within—such as spring water, as it is better for hydration than distilled water. It is also not enough to drink on the day of, prepare by drinking water up to it. Remember, if you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated!
  4. HAVE FUN – Whether with toys, jokes, songs, campfires, fireworks, boating, gathering or whatever way you decide to celebrate. Remember, we are celebrating our independence and freedom so celebrate how YOU want!

However, and whatever you do for this fourth of July, we hope that you will have a blast as we celebrate our patriotism and American pride!

Bringing You The Best

Spring Water Promotions believes in bringing only the highest quality spring water to our customers, which is why our water undergoes three different stages of purification. The first stage is UV light exposure. The second is microfiltration, and lastly our ozonation process. Our unique methods of purification help us ensure the highest quality and taste possible.

Our spring water is gravity fed from a natural and protected source in Blue Ridge, GA, where our bottling facility also sits, which is truly great as it allows us to go directly from “spring to bottle” with no need for water tanks unlike many spring water companies. This also helps us maintain the freshest water!

The first part of the process is Ultra-Violet water purification. UV systems are wonderful as they are extremely effective in combating microorganisms (UV purification destroys 99.9% of waterborne microorganisms), they are chemical free—this allows water bottlesyou to have the most natural water, UV systems also leave the taste and smell of the water unchanged (unlike chlorine and chloramines). In other words, it lets you have the best of natural water without worrying about any impurities.

After our water is purified with UV rays we move into microfiltration, here at Spring Water Promotions, we don’t just filter our spring water through once or twice. Instead our water undergoes the process 7 times. The micro-filters help strain the water of any remaining impurities.

After our water goes through the UV purification,7 micro-filters, and testing in order to ensure regulatory standards we introduce oxygen into our water. This process can be referred to as water aeration. This process increases the oxygen in our water and acts as a natural purifier.

We are extremely dedicated to bringing you only the highest quality product here at Spring Water Promotions. Not only in the purity of our water, but also customer service, graphic design, label production, and quality control. Think of us as your solution for all your bottled water needs!
