At Oxygen Orchard, it is our goal to spread useful knowledge about a crucial step to wellness: keeping well hydrated at all times.
The human body requires substantial amounts of water for physical activity, supporting a strong immune system and promoting mental fitness. We understand that for individuals to be at their best in mind and body it means compensating for a busy lifestyle with a quality water supply.
Oxygen Orchard aims to improve the way we hydrate and the way we oxygen-infuse our bodies. The revolutionary product, The Big Pitcher, provides oxygen-rich water with the convenience that accommodates any lifestyle. Healthy hydration now means better oxygen-infusion that promotes cellular health, letting your DNA do what it does best: make you thrive!
Healthy Hydration Tips and Facts
We encourage you to read through our tips and facts about keeping healthy with a more informed focus on hydration. Please view our section of frequently asked questions to learn more about The Big Pitcher.
Follow conventional wisdom – drink at least 8 eight-ounce servings of oxygen-infused water each day.
Do not wait until you are thirsty to drink water. By the time you feel thirsty, you’ve probably already lost two or more cups of your total body water.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Convenience is a must, so carry a bottle of water with you as you commute to work, run errands or enjoy a day outdoors.
Do not substitute caffeinated coffees, teas and sodas for water. Caffeine acts as a diuretic, causing you to lose water through increased urination. Alcoholic beverages have a similar effect.
If finding time to drink water is a problem, keep a bottle of water on your desk. Alternatively, visit the office water cooler and take a water break. Ideally, The Big Pitcher should be an amenity in every break room.
Once you start exercising, do not stop drinking. Keep a bottle of water with you and take frequent water breaks.
Do not underestimate the amount of fluids lost from perspiration. You need to drink two cups of water for each pound lost following a workout.
Start and end your day with a serving of oxygen-infused water. Your body loses water while you sleep, so drink a serving before bed and again when you wake up.
Do not forget that common maladies (such as colds and the flu) can frequently lead to dehydration.
A significant survey released May 11, 1998 with 3003 respondents revealed that the average American drinks nearly eight daily servings of hydrating beverages, such as water, milk, juice and decaffeinated soft drinks, but this is undermined by the nearly five servings of diuretic caffeine or alcohol-containing beverages reported in the survey.
The net result is that most Americans are probably only getting about a third of the valuable hydration benefits they need.
Learn about Total Body Water (TBW)
TBW of adult men varies from 55 percent of body weight in the obese to 65 percent in leaner individuals. Values for adult women average about 10% less.
This means that a 6-foot man who weighs 200 lbs. carries about 130 pounds of water, or about 16 gallons. A woman who weighs 110 lbs. carries about 60.5 pounds of water, or about 7.5 gallons.
