Drinking More Water Can Help Stave Off Arthritis

/24-7PressRelease/ - It is vital for all age groups to drink enough water as it can help ward off arthritis and other chronic conditions, states The Arthritic Association.

Baroness Greengross, founder of the charity Action on Elder Abuse, has this week called for a set of minimum standards on hydration across the UK. However, it's not just the elderly who should drink more water. According to arthritis pioneer Charles de Coti-Marsh, we could all stay a lot healthier for longer if we looked after our gut, and staying hydrated is the first step.

Nutritional Therapist Elizabeth Hartland explains: "fany people will have heard about the benefits of healthy bacteria and the pro-biotic drinks you can now buy, but symptoms of an unhealthy digestive system, such as constipation, are less talked about. Charles de Coti-Marsh believed that a constipated state creates toxins which stay in the bowel, enter the blood stream and poison the body, the long term effects of which can be diseases such as arthritis. Drinking plenty of water can help avoid constipation."
