Have You Heard of Water You Eat? Gel Water Is Real and Healthy, Too!

Have You Heard of Water You Eat? Gel Water Is Real and Healthy, Too!

When you hear the word gel, you likely think of the goop you need to style your hair every morning. While this type of gel helps your hair in a certain way, there is another kind of gel that boosts hair health and overall health too.

Gel water is the latest trend in promoting health and eating water may now be just as important as drinking it. Well, the important part is staying properly hydrated, no matter how you do it. Here is why you may want gel water as an option, though.

Looking at Water in a New Way

Drinking water definitely has its benefits, but it turns out that optimal function may come from gel water. This new substance is a structured form of the liquid found in plant and animal cells.

It turns out that most of the water in our cells is present in this form, so consuming it in this form will result in more efficient absorption and use.

Up until now, we only knew that our cells were made of water, but the exact form it took within our cells remained unknown. Discovering that it is gel water means we can change the way we consume water to get maximum health benefits.

Standard, liquid water has a different composition of molecules than gel water and takes longer to absorb into your body. Regular water has trouble getting through your intestinal wall where most absorption takes places, but gel water slides right through because it has the same molecular composition as the water in you intestinal cells.

Adding Gel Water to Your Life

Adding gel water to your regular water during a workout will also help boost hydration and performance, as it gets to work more efficiently as you exercise. In addition to this, gel water gives you nutrients that are missing from your regular drinking water.

The water found in fresh vegetables is gel water, and it contains phytonutrients and roughage.

Gel water found in the following fruits and vegetables has enhanced nutritional value as well as fiber to help aid absorption, making it ideal for hydration and energizing the body.

♦ Apples

♦ Avocados

♦ Bananas

♦ Broccoli

♦ Celery

♦ Carrots

♦ Lettuce

♦ Spinach

♦ Strawberries

♦ Potatoes

Apart from adding these foods to your daily diet and increasing consumption of gel water, there are additional ways you can add this beneficial hydrator and health booster to your life without buying an pricey bottle from the store.

1. Start Your Day Off Green

Start your days off by making a green smoothie. A healthy shake in the morning gives your body the fuel and energy so you can perform at your best all day long.

Greens, lemon, berries, chia seeds, cucumber, and apples give you nutrients and that elusive gel water your body needs. The chia seeds combined with gel water deliver healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which helps to move nutrients and water into your cells.

Each of the fruits and veggies included in this shake have the right mix of gel water and roughage to ensure your body absorbs all that it needs, and you can have your most productive day, every day.

2. Add a Pinch of Salt

We all know that too much salt is a bad thing, but adding a pinch to your glass of water changes it at a molecular level. You essentially get the same efficient absorption as you do with gel water.

Lightly salting your fruits helps your body to absorb the water much more efficiently, keeping you hydrated and energized for longer.

3. Keep Things Moving

It may seem like exercising interferes with your hydration levels, but certain activities actually promote water transportation and hydration. The tissue around your muscles move the water around that you need and twisting and stretching exercises help this along.

Yoga and light stretching can help water flow through your body, which assists in hydration. Strenuous exercises and cardio can cause dehydration. Strength training also helps to promote muscle growth and the healthier your muscles are the more efficient you can move water.

Final Thoughts

Every store has vitamin-enhanced water on the shelf, but you can get your own natural version. The benefits of the gel water that lives within fruits and vegetables can boost your health by boosting your hydration.

Avoid unhealthy additives, and opt for the water nature provides. Choose green, choose to eat your water, and choose optimal health for the future.
