Why water cannot do without salt & potassium

For example, if someone 70 kilos weighs, and we divide this weight by 28, then 2.5 litres are his daily water intake (70 kg : 28 = 2.5 litres).

If a person 105 kg weighs, his recommended water intake is 3.75 litres per day (120 kg : 28 = 3.75 litres).

However, the water we drink could be further optimised by making it more sustainable. purify and enliven.

The quality of our tap water can be done in this way improved become.


How much water do we need?

We have already provided information in a previous newsletter about how much water our body needs on a daily basis.

Because our body for 60 to 65% from water exists, water is also the nutrient that we need most.

The quantity of water is most important.

In general 2 litres a good recommendation.

But it is better to keep the daily adjust to your weight.

We calculate the daily water intake (in litres) that a person should drink due to the dividing body weight by 28.

Importance of Salt & Potassium

It is therefore important to sufficient water to drink.

But we must bear in mind that the basis of the human body salt water is.

The amount of water in the body is also maintained by the correct concentrations of salt (Sodium chloride, NaCl) and potassium (K).

And Sodium and Potassium must be in the proper proportion are in the body. 

Salt ensures, in particular, that sufficient water outside the cells and in the blood.

In addition, it is potassium which ensures that sufficient water remains stored in the cells.

And that is why it is important that you in addition to sufficient water, provide sufficient salt and potassium.

So if you adjust your lifestyle by the right amount of water drink for your body, you should also take the adjusting salt and potassium intake accordingly.

Salt consumption

The water in our bodies is as salty as sea water.

Therefore, it is important to in addition to water, sufficient salt consume.

When you urinate and perspire, salt, as well as water, is withdrawn from the body.

Salt deficiency can, among other things, lead to weak muscles, fatigue, feeling weak and miserable, a bad moodheadachefrequent urination and constipation.

Salt would be best in the form of sea salt take.

Sea salt has the advantage that it in addition to salt (NaCl) also 80 different minerals contains.

Refined salt is completely stripped of these extra but essential minerals.

Table salt is 100% NaCl and all the extra minerals have been taken out in the processing.

Known good species natural salt its Celtic Sea Salt and Himalayan Salt.

Both contain, in addition to NaCl, some 80 minerals and trace elements.

As a rule, you can use about a half a teaspoon (approximately 3 grams) of one of these natural salts per litre of water.


Potassium is rich in fruits and vegetables.

If you consume enough of it, you will probably get enough potassium.

In particular fresh vegetable juices are rich in potassium (and magnesium).

Potassium is also found in cereals, nuts and meat.

Potassium is a mineral that especially in the cells can be found.

The cells contain a Potassium/Natrium pump.

This pump brings and keeps the Potassium in the cell, and the sodium outside the cell.

This keeps the Potassium concentration in the cell high and the Sodium concentration outside the cell also high.

The separation of these two minerals is extremely important for the production of energy by the cell.

The correct concentration of potassium ensures that there is sufficient water in the cell remains present.

Potassium deficiency usually manifests itself in dejectionfatiguegassingconstipationinsomnia and a too low blood sugar level.

Sometimes one also receives muscle weakness and a irregular heartbeat.

In the case of a Potassium deficiency sodium and water will penetrate the cells and lead to oedema (= water accumulation in the tissues).

Importance of Magnesium

For a magnesium is required for the proper functioning of the sodium/potassium pump.

Sufficient magnesium is crucial for this pump to work properly. 

If there is Insufficient magnesium present is Potassium leaves the cells.

More information

There is much misinformation about salt.

Probably alert your doctor for the use of salt.

But salt is completely not dangerous as long as you have sufficient potassium and magnesium in your body and consume them.

We will explain why salt is wrongly labelled as unhealthy in a subsequent newsletter.

We will also take a closer look at the Symptoms related to salt deficiency can have.
