One of the most important ways to increase overall health is making sure you stay hydrated. Improving ﬁtness, losing weight, and improving diet were in the top 4 most popular resolutions in 2021. Amazingly enough, drinking adequate water improves all of these areas. If you have one of these most common resolutions on your list for this year, consider adding drinking enough water to your list.
During a recent appearance on the Bountiful Water Podcast, Christopher Lloyd, PhD of RETEGO Labs shared why something as simple as proper hydration is so important:
“It’s one of the ﬁrst things people begin to realize when they start thinking more about waters’ role in their health. They begin to notice that hydration helps their digestion. It helps their weight control. It helps how they thermally regulate. It affects how well your muscle’s function. Proper hydration affects how well we think and make decisions. The health effects are real, and using good, balanced water will immediately move you toward a greater degree of comfort and health.”
In summary, as we all well know, staying hydrated increases our quality of life:
- Increased Energy
- Decreased Headaches
- Weight Loss
- Maximizing physical performance
- Stabilizing mood
- Increased urination
- Positive organ function
- Lubricates Joints
- Healthy skin, hair, and nails
Dr. Lloyd went on to say:
“What I want you to know is that even a ﬂuctuation of 3 oz (2% of your water volume) can make differences in how your body functions.
If you change the amount of water you have in your entire body by more than 100 milliliters (3.4 oz), your body immediately goes into a regulatory state. If your body's water is reduced by just 2%, it will give up water from the cells to try and balance the amount and initiate thirst mechanisms. You’ll feel a need to drink something or eat something with a higher water content. Your body will immediately begin moving itself back into perfect balance.”
So you know that being hydrated is important, but what about the quality of water? Does that even matter? What is the best drinking water?
Like most important things in our lives, balance is the key and Dr. Lloyd shared why:
“Water loves to stay balanced. Water will immediately begin either dissolving or depositing minerals that it needs for balance from anything it comes in contact with… Just like our bodies have methods of homeostasis to bring itself back into balance, water has its own methods of homeostasis and will immediately start finding its own balance. The goal is not just perfectly pure water. The goal is perfectly balanced water.”
So, in short, yes… for your body to be able to quickly and efﬁciently use the water to hydrate your organs and not deprive your organs of minerals by doing so - it is very important that your water is balanced.
I have you convinced balanced water is BEST for your body.
NOW I want to tell you where to get the balanced water and NO it’s not from a bottle! It’s from your tap, in your house.
At RETEGO Labs our first step is to really understand your water. Once we understand your water, we carefully chose the treatment options that will give you the best water possible. For drinking water, our system doesn’t strip your water of all minerals, it balances your water making it PERFECT for you and your body. It keeps the good minerals, makes sure anything harmful is removed, and customizes it to your taste.
Our process is simple:
- First we test your water at your location and convenience with our patented, innovative technology.
- Results are produced in just a few minutes.
- The results collected are entered into a detailed report that identifies potential risks to your home or health.
- We either tell you your water is pure and safe for your family OR

- RETEGO Labs leaves you with peace of mind, knowledge, and pure safe water that makes you the Super-Hero in your household. You are providing the best water for your family.
Tap water is convenient, but, because we can’t see what is in the pipes, many people tend to be hesitant to drink straight from the tap. Here at RETEGO Labs, we offer a customizable solution for your home so you can have pure, safe, clean and optimized water. The best part is it often doesn’t change your current plumbing.
If your goal is to get healthy this year, increasing your water consumption is a great goal! Remember, with the increase in quantity, make sure you get the water quality checked as well. If quality is lacking, consider taking advantage of a customized water conditioning system!
