Are You Drinking Enough Water?

Have you ever wondered why you keep getting headaches throughout the day or why you just feel unenergetic most of the time? If this sounds like you, consider drinking more water. Many people probably don't realize they are not drinking enough quality water at the Lake of the Ozarks each day. Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks found this fantastic article by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that we think may help people to understand when they may need to drink more water and how they should go about doing so.

Getting enough water every day is important for your health. Healthy people meet their fluid needs by drinking when thirsty and drinking with meals. Most of your fluid needs are met through the water and beverages you drink. However, you can get some fluids through the foods that you eat. For example, broth soups and foods with high water content such as celery, tomatoes, or melons can contribute to fluid intake.

Water helps your body:


  • Keep your temperature normal
  • Lubricate and cushion joints
  • Protect your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues
  • Get rid of wastes through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements


Your body needs more water when you are:


  • In hot climates
  • More physically active
  • Running a fever
  • Having diarrhea or vomiting


If you think you are not getting enough water, these tips may help:



  • Carry a water bottle for easy access when you are at work of running errands.
  • Freeze some freezer safe water bottles. Take one with you for ice-cold water all day long.
  • Choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages. This can also help with weight management. Substituting water for one 20-ounce sugar sweetened soda will save you about 240 calories. For example, during the school day students should have access to drinking water, giving them a healthy alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages.


  • Choose water when eating out. Generally, you will save money and reduce calories.
  • Add a wedge of lime or lemon to your water. This can help improve the taste and help you drink more water than you usually do.


"Drink more water - Acts like an appetite suppressant, keeps you hydrated, helps flush out toxins, zero calories." - MotiveWeight

Thanksgiving Recipes That Include Water


Who doesn't love a good chicken or turkey gravy to pour over your mashed potatoes or stuffing?

Source: How Sweet Eats

HOW TO MAKE GRAVY


yield: I'D SAY THIS SERVES ABOUT 8 PEOPLE GENEROUSLY (TOTALLY DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH YOU LOVE GRAVY)
total time: 15 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS:

the drippings from a turkey, chicken, etc (be sure to add extra stock BEFORE roasting if desired)
16 ounces cold water
3 heaping tablespoons all-purpose flour
salt and pepper!!!

DIRECTIONS:


Strain the drippings from the roasting pan into a large pot or saucepan and set it over medium heat. Add the cold water to a shaker bottle (or water bottle/mason jar) and add the flour on top. Shake the heck out of it for 30 to 60 seconds, until the flour seems completely incorporated and creates a slurry. With a whisk or fork in one hand, pour the slurry into the drippings, sitting constantly with the other hand. Continue to stir to avoid any lumps and stir until the gravy has thickened, anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. Make sure you are scraping the bottom of the pan.

Taste the gravy and season it to your liking. Set it over low heat for serving. Like soups and sauces, it often tastes better the next day!

Wash down all of that yummy home cooked food with this awesome apple tea recipe we found!

The best water quality company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to about a product that can help solve this problem you are having, the Culligan High Efficiency Water Softeners.

  • Let you know how long your salt will last.
  • Providing benefits such as shinier hair, brighter clothes and cleaner skin
  • Extending the life of all your household appliances by stopping the effects of corrosion


Product Overview:

Hard water is the result of mineral buildup in your city or well water, most commonly from calcium and lime. Hard water can reduce the quality of water in your home and may also be driving up your water bills, cleaning costs and more. The signs of hard water are not always obvious, but can have detrimental effects on your home. Hard water can cause corrosive build of scale from mineral deposits in your pipes. Over time, your pipes can clog, water flow can diminish and water pressure will be reduced. Your local Culligan water expert offers range of water softener products that fits your needs, wallet and for every size of household.

Savings:

The Culligan® High Efficiency Water Softener is the most efficient water softener in the market. You save more on water, salt, and electricity with patented smart technology that makes our high-efficiency water softeners up to 46% more efficient* than other softeners. Not only will you be saving your wallet by reducing water and electricity costs, but you will also be decreasing your home’s environmental footprint.

Intelligence

It is about more than energy efficiency - it's about intelligence. While using up to 50% less salt, the HE lets you know how many days remain until you need to refill it with salt. Our Aqua-Sensor® technology automatically detects changes in your water conditions and makes softening adjustments accordingly. You can even install an optional modem that will tell your Lake of the Ozarks Culligan dealer directly if salt or service is needed.

Ease

Reduce trips to the basement as the Culligan® HE's remote display alerts you to any problems and gives you control over various functions, like activating the electronic bypass valve. And the Dial-a-Softness® control ensures that your water is always just the way you like it, never too soft or too hard.

5 Tips for Avoiding Candy Binges this Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone! We want everyone to have a HAPPY, but SAFE Halloween this year. Part of having a Happy Halloween is not going on a bender and losing control with your candy binging. Our quality water company at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to give you a 5 tips you can follow in order to avoid Halloween Candy Binges.



5 Tips for Avoiding Candy Binges this Halloween


1. Stay HYDRATED!


Did you know that drinking water can make you feel more full? This Halloween weekend, drink plenty of water. A general rule of thumb you can follow is either to drink half your bodyweight  in ounces or to try and stick to drinking 8 ounces of water per day. If you have a sweet tooth, however, try drinking hot tea. Hot tea can be a good option when you care craving something sweet.


2. Keep working out.


Here is a good way you can think about it. The more you exercise continuously, the more your body will crave healthier foods and water. Also, if you burn lots of calories, you can feel less guilty about eating a piece of candy because it won't be as bad as if you weren't working out.


3. Keep eating healthy.


Halloween brings the temptation, sweets are everywhere! However, you can still remain healthy. If you are trying to diet, just continue to eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner and have health snacks at the ready. Your co-workers may bring in Halloween treats, so just try to keep some healthy snacks in your desk drawer.


4. Chew gum.


Did you know that chewing sugar free gum can be a low-calorie way of dealing with your sweet cravings? BONUS TIP: Studies also show that chewing gum can lower stress.


5. Try savoring 1 piece of candy per day.


If you are MUST have your candy and after following these tips, you still can't resist your cravings, that's ok. Just exercise the practice of portion control Try limiting yourself to one piece of candy per day, but when you eat it, eat it slowly. Savor it! Eating slowly can actually trick your body into feeling fuller faster.

What Type Of Water Should Be Used When Preparing Baby Formula?

Congratulations! You've just had a new baby and you have decided to feed your new bundle of joy baby formula. It's important to know that the chemicals and minerals that are often found in usual drinking water may not be right for your baby at such a young age. Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few guidelines to follow when trying to ensure your baby stays healthy while drinking formula.


Guidelines to Follow When Trying to Ensure Your Baby Stays Healthy While Drinking Formula


Decide on the Right Water to Use with Baby Formula


Before you decide on what type of water to mix into  your baby's formula, consult with your doctor. Also, if you are on a public water system, you may be able to with your local water utility company to see how much fluoride is in the water.

Water You Can Use


Bottled water (just for babies)

There is water  out there that is specifically designed to use with baby formula. Of Course, this type of water follows much stricter guidelines.


Tap water

Depending on what are you live in, tap water can be perfectly safe to use. Again, consult with your doctor first before deciding on the water to use with your baby's formula.


Bottled water

If you do choose to use bottled water, be sure you make sure there are no additives. Bottled water may not be sterile, so you may have to boil it, just like you'd boil tap water.


How to Add Water to Your Baby's Formula


When you add water to your baby's formula, be sure to follow the directions that are on the package of the formula. The basic rule of thumb for liquid-concentrate or powdered formulas can just be to:

1. Start with the cold tap water. Let the water run for about 2 minutes to get cold. (The colder the water is, the lower the amount of contaminants you may have in the water.)

2. Pour the cold water into a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Let it boil for about a minute, then let the water cool down.

3. Once the water is cooled, you may use it to make the formula.

4. Mix the formula as directed on the package.

3 Key Ways to Conserve Water in Your Home

There are areas that suffer from drought from time to time, so conserving water is very important. Even if you don't live an area that suffers from drought, using your water wisely can help with your utility bill. In this blog, Culligan at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to give you 3 key ways to utilize your water conservatively. 



3 Key Ways to Conserve Water in Your Home


1. Turn off the tap while you are brushing your teeth.


Turn off your water while you are brushing your teeth. Doing this can help you save water. Did you know that the average faucet releases 2 gallons of water per minute? You can save up to 8 gallons of water every day just by turning off your tap while you brush your teeth, at least if you brush you brush your teeth for the recommended 2 minutes. This rule can also go for gentlemen who shave at the sink. Rinse your razor in a pool of water in a plugged sink instead of rinsing it under running water every time.

2. Load your dishwasher correctly.

Loading your dishwasher incorrectly can lead to still-dirty dishes and your dishwasher having to use extra water to wash your dishes. There are wrong ways and right ways to load your dishwasher. For example, some common mistakes when loading your dishwasher can include:

  • placing car-covered dishes everywhere
  • putting protein-crusted dishes anywhere
  • placing your spoons where the tops touch eachother
  • overloading your dishwasher
  • not following directions

3. Fix your leaky sinks and running toilets.

Did you know that a running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water each day? Also, at one drip per second, a leaky faucet can leak 3,000 gallons in a year. If your toilet is running or your sink is leaking, we recommend you call a plumber as soon as possible. Getting your toilet and sink fixed as soon as possible can not only help prevent a more expensive utility bill, but also it can help prevent even more costly repairs from happening.

7 Health Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water You Probably Didn't Know

Did you know that lemon water is surprisingly a healthy internal cleanser to start your day with? It's far better to use real lemon juice, rather than lemon juice concentrate. Natural enzymes, antioxidants, and vitamins can be found in real lemons, so what not squeeze some of that into your daily water? Here are a few benefits Culligan would like to give you that can be gained by drinking lemon water.



Health Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water You Probably Didn't Know


1. Lemon water helps prevent digestive problems

Drinking water can help with digestive problems such as bloating, intestinal gas, and heartburn. Lemon water can stimulate better digestion all around.


2. Lemon water provides a good portion of vitamin C

Lemon water is also a good source of folate and minerals like potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

3. Lemon water can contain a powerful cleansing effect on your liver, kidneys, and blood

An overlooked liver can have a significant influence on how good you feel. Cleansing your liver each morning, by drinking some lemon water can make a big difference in your daily energy over an extended period of time.


4. Lemon water can help prevent extreme constipation or diarrhea

Drinking lemon water early in the morning can help prevent constipation or diarrhea.

5. Lemon water can help cure a throat infection

Make a warm, lemon water drink to sip on every couple of hours if you are suffering from a sore throat. 




6. Lemon water can decrease the amount of mucus and phlegm produced in the body.

As you may already know, drinking milk or other dairy products can cause mucus to form in the body, drinking lemon water can help break the mucus down and lessen the mucus levels in your body.

7. Lemon water can help with bad breath.

Are you suffering from bad breath continuously? Have you tried mints, gum, and other things and they just don't seem to work? Try drinking lemon water. Lemon water can help reduce your bad breath. The high antioxidant and antibiotic compounds can possibly also reduce body odor over time. This is just another good reason to start your morning with a nice glass of lemon water.

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 is the leading quality water expert and committed to helping individuals, families, and communities in need of clean, safe drinking water.

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 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.
