Hydration Help: Why We're Loving Age Quencher Hydrate Electrolyte
We all know it’s important to stay hydrated - especially in 2018 when every summer means record breaking heat. Hydration helps our muscles contract and lengthen, keeps our joints properly lubricated, supports digestion, and is crucial for proper brain function. In fact, dehydration can lead to problems with short-term memory, attention, and visual-motor tracking. It can also throw things completely out of whack when it comes to your complexion — it can leave skin dry, tight and flaky, potentially leading to eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions. In short: your brain, your organs and your complexion all rely on hydration to function properly.
This is definitely not breaking news. The “8 glasses of water a day” rule has been around for quite some time — water is a pretty popular drink. While drinking water throughout the day is definitely a must, the idea that drinking TONS of water helps you flush out toxins and purify the body is slowly starting to be debunked by healthcare practitioners. Contrary to the idea that lots of water equals optimal hydration, Dr. Justine Hextall points out that drinking excessive amounts of water just means lots of trips to the bathroom with no added benefit to the body. Additionally, removing toxins from the body is a complex process that isn’t as simple as flushing the body out with litres of water.
So we need to stay hydrated - we need it for our brain function, our digestion, our muscles, joints and skin - but water doesn’t necessarily lead to a well hydrated body. This is where Age Quencher comes in.
Age Quencher was created by naturopathic doctor, Dr. Holly Fennell in response to a young patient whose cancer treatment had lead to early menopause. This patient wanted to know, “how can I maintain my energy and vitality as I undergo these physical changes?”
Drinking water is obviously important for a healthy body - but drinking water and hydrating the body aren’t exactly the same thing. To reap all the benefits of hydration, you need a little something extra. Age Quencher Hydrate Electrolyte is infused with essential minerals, electrolytes and antioxidants to combat fatigue and free radical damage; Age Quencher actually does flush toxins out of the body. Like Dr. Hextall pointed out, you can’t drink litres and litres of water and expect to have better skin, flush out toxins, and stay sharp. But with a little bit of Age Quencher, water actually can do all these things for you.
- Improved skin tone, including plump, glowing skin
- Improved hair and nail strength and shine
- Decreased inflammation
- Increased energy
- Increased mental alertness
- Healthier digestion or soothing of digestive problems
Water will always be our favourite drink but we love the flavour boost (think subtle orange flavour - natural, of course) and the added benefits of Age Quencher’s Hydrate Electrolyte. It’s nearly impossible to deny something that gives you healthy skin, hair, and nails, increased energy, better digestion AND tastes delicious. We nearly lost our minds when we attended the 2018 Holistic Beauty Expo and there was an Age Quencher fountain. The elusive fountain of youth may be a myth (and we’re pro-aging anyway) but Age Quencher is pretty darn close.
