Green Water Technologies | Legend Has It…

Green Water Technologies

Water is not a myth. We see it everywhere, and carry it with us 100% of the time. However, according to Green Water Technologies, there are a host of misconceptions regarding this clearly vital fluid. Here, the Texas-based water filtration experts answer a few common questions that cast aside a few of the most commonly misunderstood thoughts about H2O.

Q: Sports drinks are better than water for athletes, right?

Green Water Technologies: Absolutely not, with a small caveat. When you work out, whether you are an athlete or not, you lose water. This means you need to rehydrate often. The only true exception is that some long-distance runners and a few other extreme athletes may benefit from supplementing their water intake with sports drinks. This is only those who sweat for an extended time, and it has nothing to do with hydration. Sports drinks can help to replenish sodium.

Q: Is it possible to overdose on water?

Green Water Technologies: In the course of your day, you can pretty much drink as much water as you want without fear of negative consequences. However, people with certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure, may find themselves facing complications if they oversaturate all at once. There have also been a few unfortunate incidents of people drinking without pause during college hazing and other challenges. This can throw the body's sodium balance off, which can, under extreme circumstances, lead to hospitalization or death.

Q: It’s okay to reuse possible bottles…

Green Water Technologies: We’ve all ran into the store and grabbed a bottle of water on an outing. While you run very little chance of getting sick because of this, it’s probably a good idea to toss the bottle in the recycling when you’re done. Not only can particles from these begin to leach chemicals into the liquid after multiple uses, if you are not washing your water bottle, you’re ingesting lots of bacteria along with your liquid.

Green Water Technologies says that common sense prevails when it comes to water consumption. Drink when you’re thirsty, and contact your healthcare provider if you are concerned that you are drinking too much or too little.
