Why drink hot beverages and water in winter?The cold and flu season is no fun. The sniffling, sneezing and headaches add up to a big discomfort for many. While there is no cure for the common cold or flu, there is an organic way you can fight it, by drinking adequate amounts of water. Water helps to wash germs and viruses out of your immune system and keeps the body hydrated.Warming up with a cup of hot tea not only soothes the soul, but when used to replace a sugary beverage can decrease calories and help you lose weight. Drink tea often to keep your antioxidant levels high throughout the day.

How do Antioxidants benefit me?
Antioxidants offer a number of health benefits, and they have been touted as a possible preventative of diseases, ranging from cancer to Alzheimer’s. Research suggests that antioxidants can indeed be effective in preventing a number of age-related diseases.

Health Benefits of Warm Drinks
If one or your New Years’ Resolutions was to increase fluids, drinking a cup of tea/coffee is a tasteful way to do that. Squeeze a lemon to your tea to add another health boost of ascorbic acid during these winter months!
Prevent fatigue
One of the first signs of dehydration is fatigue. Thus, if you are having a 3:00 afternoon slump at work, brew up a little tea bag or use a teaspoon of loose leaves to help increase your energy level. Maybe, you were just dehydrated!
Increase your antioxidants
All teas contain a group of antioxidants called polyphenols that can help promote health. Even though the research available is “hot and cold” regarding whether drinking tea can help prevent chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, increasing your antioxidants can help promote good health!

Health Benefits of Filtered Cold Drinks
1-Water oxygenates your blood and flushes out harmful toxins from your immune system
2-Prevention of common chronic ailments is another benefit of using water to fight off cold, flu and other illnesses.
3-Drinking adequate amounts of water will help you digest your food better.
4-Drinking water will help organs like your eyes and mouth to remain moist and repel contaminants that could cause infections.

Before you run for that glass of water however, stop to think about whether your water is filtered or not. The full benefit of water is ineffective if it contains waterborne contaminants such as bacteria, sediment, Giardia or Cryptosporidium. This is why drinking filtered water, free from contaminants, is best for your immune system. Glenpatrick offer a range of cost effective filtered water systems.
