Aquas: Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hydration?
Yours body’s ability to absorb and manage water down to the cellular level. Hydration has more to do with water uptake than water intake.
What do the Aquas do?
Assist your body to upgrade Hydration and re-educate your body to reset its water management and thirst mechanisms. Regular use of the Aquas Formula has been shown over the last 25 years to support hydration and therefore general wellbeing.
I drink plenty of purified water. Why do I need to take Aquas?
It’s not only how much water you drink, but how well you absorb and metabolize water that counts. Environmental stressors, bad dietary habits, and emotional stress all can compromise your body’s hydration. For example, you will usually get a dry mouth when stressed.
Why are there two formulas and why are they different for men and women?
Male and female Aquas have been developed to address the differences in water metabolism in male and female bodies.
Are there any side effects?
No, not generally. When your body begins to upgrade hydration, your cells may be able to release stored toxins. You may experience temporarily a headache or tiredness when your body is responding to this process. It is recommended to increase your water intake for several days to assist this to pass quickly. You may also wish to ask your health professional about also attending to your intestinal flora, liver function and other detox mechanisms, and some dietary considerations.
Will the Aquas make me thirsty?
Reports from Aquas users over the last 25 years indicate that many people do become more aware of the desire to drink water. Others who already consume a large quantity of water daily report that their thirst is more adequately quenched by their fluid intake.
Should I take the Aquas with food?
We recommend that you take Aquas at least 20 minutes prior to eating or at least 45 minutes after a meal. Filling your stomach with water can dilute your digestive juices which are needed to digest your meal – hence the considerations of timing. For most people, it is more convenient to take Aquas first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening.
How long should I take the Aquas?
Hydration, together with nutrition, exercise and emotional wellbeing, are the corner stones of good health. We need to attend to hydration as part of our ongoing health routine.
Does it matter if I miss the Aquas for a day?
No. In fact it is recommended in general to take the Aquas for only 5-6 days each week. However, best results will come from consistent use over the long term.
Will the Aquas interfere with my current health regimen?
No. Because the Aquas address the fundamentals of hydration they are as complementary as good nutrition.
