KEY Benefits of Drinking Water Regularly While You Are Pregnant

You've just received the BIG news! You are having a baby. Congratulations! Your bundle of joy will be here before you know it. How exciting! There are so many tips out there that can help you stay healthy while you are pregnant, but one significant thought are the benefits of drinking water while you are pregnant. In this blog, our quality water company at the Lake of the Ozarks, Culligan would like to give you a few major benefits of drinking water while you are pregnant.



KEY Benefits of Drinking Water While You Are Pregnant


Water Delivers Essential Nutrients To Your Fetus


Water helps your body absorb the essential nutrients into the cells. Water also helps transport vitamins, minerals, and hormones to the blood cells. Basically, the good things in the prenatal vitamins you are taking are being transported to your fetus starting with water.


Your Daily Recommended Water Intake Increases While You Are Pregnant


Normally, you're expected to drink approximately 8 glasses of water a day. When you are pregnant, according to the Institute of Medicine, you should drink 12 glasses of water a day. Try to space out your sips of water, rather than gulping down a large amount all at once. This can help prevent you from feeling nauseous or uncomfortable.


Water Can Help With Fatigue, Overheating and Headaches


When you are pregnant, you can feel hot more often than you did when you were not pregnant. Drinking water regularly can help cool you down. A couple of symptoms of dehydration can be exhaustion and headaches, so drinking water while you are pregnant can help prevent both symptoms from taking place.

Raving Culligan Customer Review of the Day


It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Culligan's reverse osmosis with distilled cartridge to any dental practice.

I was frustrated with having to allow time for a staff member to go to the store for bottles of distilled water. It was time consuming and took time away from patient care. The new system in our office was easily installed & has eliminated those worries. There is a special tap for the water that our assistants use when filling our sterilization equipment. It is SO easy!

Not only are the fees for the service affordable, but the relief of not having to run weekly errands is priceless.

- Deborah B.

Culligan Cares

Hurricane Harvey has been devastating the state of Texas, as many of you know. The all-time Texas rainfall record from a tropical storm has been broken., according to the National Weather Service. Hurricane Harvey could dump as much as 50 inches of rain on parts of Texas. Roads are underwater or washed out. Basic services like electricity and water are knocked out. It will be WEEKS before some of these people can even return home. Many of them still do not know if they will have homes to return to. In this blog, Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to show you what Culligan Cares is, some of the efforts that are being made to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, and where you can go to donate money to Culligan Cares.


Culligan Cares


Culligan is the leading quality water expert and committed to helping individuals, families, and communities in need of clean, safe drinking water. Culligan International, over the years, has supported disaster relief programs both globally and locally.

Culligan Efforts Toward Hurricane Harvey


 One of the basic needs that these people being affected by Hurricane Harvey and the first responders that are down there risking their lives need is CLEAN, SAFE drinking water.

    • Approximately 75,000 bottles of Culligan water have been provided to Convoy of Hope for those who have been displaced from their homes. Convoy of Hope has a temporary distribution site set up in Victoria, TX. Culligan is continuing to provide water to Convoy of Hope as their supply depletes over time.
    • In addition, Culligan has shipped over 45,000 bottles of Culligan water to several dealers in the Houston area. With the assistance of Culligan of Houston, clean drinking water had already been provided to a firehouse in Katy, TX. The water is supporting over 200 first responders dispatched from all over Texas.

Culligan continues to monitor the situation in Texas and is in direct contact with those Culligan dealers in the Houston area.

5 Ways to Make Drinking Water More Interesting

Yes, water is very good and healthy for us, but people still aren't drinking enough of it. Culligan Lake of the Ozarks knows this, but did you know that there are ways to "spice up" drinking water to where you are still getting your daily proper amount of water? In this blog, our quality water supply company at the Lake of the Ozarks is going to give you 5 KEY ways to make your drinking water more interesting.




5 KEY Ways to Make Your Drinking Water More Interesting


Add Fruit Juice

Fruit juice can make your water taste heavenly and a hot day. Just a touch of your FAVORITE fruit juice can add both flavor and color.

Eat Your Water

If you are having trouble drinking your water, try eating it! There are many different kinds of soup that are either primarily water or water based. There are many broths that are water based. If you are buying your soup from a store rather than making it yourself at home, try to avoid buyings soups that are high in sodium.

Add Ice Cubes

There are SO many cool things you can do with your ice and then add to your water to jazz up your drinking water a bit. You can try a few of the following tricks;

  • Freeze berries into ice cubes
  • Freeze fruit juice
  • Freeze cucumbers into ice cubes
  • Freeze lemons and limes into ice cubes


Add Some Spice

Try simmering a cinnamon stick in roughly a cup of water, when it's infused, it shouldn't take long to combine that into a pitcher of cold water, giving it blast of cinnamon spice flavoring. Cinnamon can taste divine in water.


Make Tea

Drinking tea is a GREAT way to drink more water. It adds flavor and motivation to drink more water. If you aren't much of a tea drinker, experiment with it a little bit. There are hundreds of flavors of tea out there to try, you might just find one you like! If you decide you like tea, then you can brew up a large amount of it and drink it throughout your day whether you're in the office at work or spending a quiet day at home. What is better than a nice glass of cold tea on a hot day?

Can Drinking Water Really Make You Feel Fuller?

You are in the first week of your new diet and you are starving! Really think about it though, are you actually hungry or could you possibly just be dehydrated? The human body is made up of approximately 60 percent water. Your body can require approximately between 2 to 3 liters of water or other beverages to replenish itself. Water is a key component in good everyday health. It also has other advantages too, such as helping you feel FULL FASTER and LONGER. In today's blog, Culligan of the Lake of the Ozarks is going to share information on how water can make you feel full, water based foods and warning on not to drink too much water because it is possible.


Water Can Make You Feel Full

According to the SFGate website, Dr. Melina Jampolis, Physician Nutrition Speicalist, cited on CNN Health, revealed that people who drink two glasses of water 20 to 30 minutes before meals lose significantly more weight than people who do not. At times it can very difficult for the body to tell the difference between hunger and thirst. Due to this, water can often be used to curb your hunger or cravings. Staying hydrated consistently is important o avoid eating more food than your body actually needs.


Water-Based Foods

Eating water based foods can also trick your body into thinking it's full.  Eating water-based foods have a similar effect to drinking water. Water based foods include foods such as:

  • Soup (Broth-Based)
  • Lettuce
  • Low-fat dairy
  • Oranges
  • Watermelon
  • Spinach
  • Garlic
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries

Eating these types of food can have comparable effects to drinking a glass of water. Consider eating a piece of fruit or vegetables before a meal to feel full faster and cut back on eating too many calories.


Warning: Don't Drink Too Much Water

Believe it or not, it is possible to drink too much water. This can be very dangerous and lead to hypotermia, which can lead to confusion, seizures and possibly a coma. Drinking multiple gallons of water at a time can lead to this. This rare condition is more commonly found in athletes and the elderly. Only use water as a supplementary tool and not a replacement for food when you are dieting. You may consider consulting a doctor before beginning an extreme diet.


Culligan: Better Water. Pure and Simple

Culligan offers a wide variety of contemporary, stylish cooler designs. Lake of the Ozarks Culligan offers a variety of options based on your needs and budget.

It’s National Water Quality Month

It’s National Water Quality Month! The nature of your water is essential. In honor of National Water Quality Month, Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you 7 things you can do to help keep your water sources clean.


1. Recycle Your Used Items

Recycling your items and disposing of items that can not be recycled the right way can drastically help the environment and keep your water clean. Recycling keeps your items from reaching river other water sources. Even just throwing a cigarette in the trash vs. the ground can help a lot.

2. Minimize Your Chemical Use

Eliminating or minimizing as much as possible your use of harsh chemicals as much as possible is a great way to protect the global waters from chemicals. For example, fertilizers normally consist of phosphorous and nitrogen. If these chemicals reach the water, they can lead to a surge in algae growth, which can then lead t the killing of existing aquatic life.

3. Reduce Your Water Use When Possible

Lower your water usage to as much as possible. Lowering it keeps water supplies cleaner by reducing chemicals used in treatment.

4. Dispose of Your Hazardous Materials Correctly

Proper Disposal of your chemicals, such as motor oil, paints or pharmaceuticals keeps them from entering your water source. Check with your local municipal center on where you can drop off materials such as these in your area.

5. Keep Runoff Minimal

When water runs down a street it picks up toxins off the street and can eventually reach your waterways. To minimize this, you can sweep rather than hose down your driveway. When washing your car, try using a bucket rather than a hose. Even your choice in landscaping can help with the runoff. Having gravel over garden will help with the runoff.

6. Advocate for Clean Water

Once you have learned how to keep your water clean, spread the word! Use your new found knowledge to teach others how to keep their water clean, possible through a community education program. Speak at chamber meetings or town meetings. Bring it up at the local PTA meeting. This affects everyone, so spreading the word can be essential because this is an issue that involves everyone.

7. Participate in Clean Up Efforts

Participate in town clean up to help remove the trash from the water. Better yet, you can even organize a church group or school clean up to help maximize your efforts.

In Need of Fresh, Clean Water in Your Home?


The quality of your home water can cause a variety of issues if you don’t have good, quality water. Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks is happy to be able to provide good quality water services at the Lake of the Ozarks to you and your family. To contact us today, call 573-719-1314.
