Hydrating Our Children

Hydrating our children is important, but just how thirsty are our kids? We all know that adults need to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day. That number is based on a 2,000-calorie diet. The idea is that for every calorie burned, people should drink 1 milliliter of water and there are 2,000 milliliters of water in 8 cups. However, when it comes to children, their caloric intake varies depending on their activity level.

According to a study led by researchers at Queens College of the City University of New York, children need between five and eight glasses of water a day. Of course, some kids need more, some less. Some days you will have to increase your child’s water intake if it is hot out or if they are recovering from an illness. Sure fruit, veggies, sugar-free frozen treats, and even low-fat milk are all ways to help keep your child hydrated but water plays an essential role in your child’s health.

Did you know your child’s body is made up of 60% water? So how do you make sure they are getting their daily-recommended intake? It is hard with a child since they are always on the run, but the best way to get your kid to drink more water is to drink more water yourself. Interested in knowing just how much water each member of your family should be drinking? Click here to calculate how much water you need to maintain proper hydration.

Rayne of Camp Pendleton knows how important it is to stay hydrated; we also know how hard it can be to manage during these summer months. According to a study by BabyCenter.com, children prefer the taste of water when it is cold. Having an R.O. Drinking Water System makes it easy and convenient to have a fresh supply of clean drinking water. With an under-sink unit, you can refill water bottles daily and just stick them in the fridge, giving you and your family an endless supply of fresh, clean, cold, drinking water.

Water vs. Sports Drinks

With September upon us, summer is coming to a close. This will mean cooler nights, and not-so-hot days, after school activities, and fall sports. Though the weather will begin to change as we head into fall, it is still important we remember to keep our family and ourselves hydrated. So what is the best beverage of choice to do this? There is a lot of hype surrounding sport drinks such as Gatorade, Powerade, and Coconut Water, but are those beverages the better choices over water?

Sports drinks are known for having “electrolytes” in them. Electrolytes are minerals, mostly potassium and sodium, which are intended to replenish what the body has lost through sweating. The purpose of these beverages is to bring the levels of minerals in your blood closer to their normal levels, so you can continue your workout as if you just started. Sounds great, right? Actually, most nutritionists agree that sports drinks only become beneficial once your workout extends past 60 minutes. However, if you aren’t going to be working our vigorously for an extended period of time, chances are you are only filling your body with unneeded calories, sugars, and artificial flavorings. In fact, some sports drinks have over 10 teaspoons of sugar, which can actually cause you to become dehydrated if they aren’t immediately utilized for energy.

It’s true, the best beverage choice for staying hydrated is still – you guessed it – good old-fashioned water! For most adults, “if they avoided the sports drinks they would get thinner and run faster,” says Tim Noakes, professor of exercise and sports science at University of Cape Town.

So how much water should you drink? Thirst is a good indication and guide as to how much water you should drink. If you or your kids get muscle cramps while exercising, you may need to drink a little more, but it’s probably a good idea to lay off the sports drinks.

Rayne of Camp Pendelton wants to help you and your family stay hydrated and having an
R.O. Drinking Water System in your home, makes it easy. With an under-sink unit you can refill water bottles everyday and keep them in the fridge. This way every morning before work or school, or every afternoon before soccer practice, there will always be a refreshing supply of cold, clean drinking water.

Of course, Rayne of Camp Pendelton offers soft water for your home as well. One of our qualified technicians can set you up with our Exchange Tank Program today, giving you cleaner dishes, brighter clothes, and softer skin with no effort on your part.

How Water Helps with Weight Control

Water is a great beverage choice for so many reasons, it is the best beverage to rehydrate our body, it helps to keep our blood regulated and our organs functioning properly, it keeps us looking young, and it energizes our muscles. Did you know water also helps to control our caloric intake and can aid in weight loss? While water isn’t by any means a magical beverage, substituting it for higher calorie beverages can certainly help.

Of course water is calorie free so it is reasonably a better choice than soda, juice, or sweetened tea, but did you know that often when you feel hungry, you’re really just thirsty? Our mind tends to confuse hunger and thirst. Next time you find yourself hungry at odd times of the day, reach for a cup of water before grabbing food. If your feelings of hunger go away after drinking that cup of water, you’ve just saved yourself calories by not eating the snack your body didn’t really need!

Drinking water is one of the easiest efforts you can incorporate into your weight loss or weight maintenance plan. In fact, studies show that people who incorporated drinking a glass of water before a meal into their daily diet plan lost 44% more weight than those who drank sugary beverages with their meal, or didn’t drink fluids at all. Why is this? Drinking water with a meal may make your body feel full sooner and therefore helps control overeating.

In addition to curbing appetite, water can help speed up the body’s metabolism. As a matter of fact, your metabolism will slow to conserve energy when you haven’t had enough water to drink, as your organs can’t and won’t function as efficiently. Scientifically speaking, drinking water has been proven to contribute to your body’s ability to burn calories. Drinking ice-cold water first thing in the morning is an easy way to speed up your metabolism. Right when you wake up, drink a glass or two of cold water. Your body will have to warm up the water entering your system, which means increasing your metabolism in the process. It’s a simple step to add into your daily routine that, while not a miracle cure, can certainly contribute to your other weight loss efforts.

Whether you’re just embarking on your weight loss plan or have been steadily making strides for some time, it is important to make sure you’re drinking enough water for your body to function correctly. Rayne of Camp Pendleton wants to help! With an R.O. Drinking Water System in your home you can fill & refill water bottles everyday and keep them in the fridge. This way you will always have a plentiful & refreshing supply of cold, clean drinking water.

Don’t forget Rayne of Camp Pendleton also does soft water. We can set your family up with our Exchange Tank Program so all of you can enjoy cleaner dishes, cleaner clothes, and softer skin. Contact us today so we can schedule your appointment and have your family feeling great in no time!

Healthy Water For Healthy Skin

Many of us know that having soft water flow from our faucets offers a variety of benefits – but do you know how beneficial it could be to the health of your skin?

Hard water contains higher-than-ordinary levels of dissolved minerals such as magnesium and calcium. The principal disadvantage of hard water is that the dissolved ions react with the chemicals in soap to create a sticky scum or curd and form deposits. These deposits are known to clog plumbing, leave luster-less dishes in the dishwasher, put more wear on your clothing, and turn swimming pools into a milky mess. In addition to household concerns, hard water leaves soap deposits on your skin and in your hair causing both to become dry, unmanageable, and unhealthy.

Hard water isn’t only bad for your skin, it is known to aggravate Eczema and other skin conditions. While there isn’t any hard evidence to prove it, thousands of people have had lasting relief after having a water softener installed in their home. Just imagine millions of tiny rocks (Calcium) many times smaller than the particles on a sheet of sand paper – then visualize these particles on your skin, stuck in the pores along with residues of soap and detergent ‘scum’ rubbing and aggravating your skin throughout the day. In addition to the irritants stuck on your skin, hard water scum does not rinse from your clothing, towels, or bed linens so you have the added disadvantage of these residues being in constant contact with your skin. Another reason hard water can irritate your skin and eczema is due to the increased use of soap and detergent. Since soap isn’t able to lather sufficiently in hard water, people need to use more of it – unfortunately, these products are known to inflame the skin of eczema sufferers.

Rayne of Camp Pendleton wants to help you and your family be comfortable in your own skin! In addition to removing the calcium and magnesium from your hard water, our water softeners also help to eliminate chlorine. While chlorine is added to our city water by supply companies to prevent disease, high concentrations can cause other problems when if comes into contact with your skin. By installing a water softener in your home you will be removing three perils – scale, scum, and chlorine – by doing so your skin’s health and comfort can be improved greatly!

With this system, a Rayne technician will deliver a fresh Soft Water Tank to your home and exchange it every week, every 2 weeks, or every 4 weeks depending on the number of people in your family.

Better Performance & Savings Achieved with Softened Water

Would you like a way to get your clothes and dishes cleaner than you do now using only half as much detergent?

Two groundbreaking independent studies show this is possible with softened water.

The studies were conducted in 2011 by the independent testing firm Scientific Services S/D, Inc. of New York and funded by the Water Quality Research Foundation (WQRF). Here are just two of the key results: In washing machines, softened water allows detergent use to be reduced by 50% and saves energy by washing at the cold water setting instead of the hot water setting, achieving the same or better stain removal and whiter clothes compared to results in hard water. In dishwashers, with areas having very hard water, softened water can mean cutting detergent by up to 70%. In addition to saving you money, the results show that softened water can also be environmentally friendly. Soft water consumers can help by cutting back on harmful detergents – which means less detergent going into our water supply. Also, hard water leaves deposits on your pipes, plumbing, and inside your appliances. That means soft water can extend the life of your appliances and reduce appliance and plumbing waste.

At Rayne of Camp Pendleton we understand how important it is to save money. Installing a soft water system can help you do that through energy savings and detergent savings, as well as extending the life of your appliances.
