Nutrition Advent Calendar - Day 5

Drink smarter this Christmas to reduce excess calories...

Everyone loves Christmas because it’s an opportunity to let your hair down, spend time with friends and family, eat great tasting food and enjoy a drink or two!

Water is an essential constituent of the human body as it makes up approximately 60% of its whole composition. All cells, organs and tissues are primarily comprised of water making it vital for correct function of all physiological processes in the body. Water transports nutrients and oxygen into cells, regulates body temperature (thermoregulation), acts as a lubricant and shock absorber to protect joints, the brain and foetus during pregnancy, supports digestion & removal of waste products, and is also required to breakdown food so we can use it as energy.
