Respected physicians from around the globe recommend that one must drink eight cups or two litres of water a day. Hydration is essential to sustain a healthy metabolism, to maintain a constant body temperature, blood pressure and heart rate. It surely keeps the skin glowing, helps you think and keeps the joints supple.
As part of its commitment to support campaigns for healthier living by promoting a balanced diet and physical activity, GSD Marketing Ltd, through Kristal water, are collaborating with the Health Promotion Department on a water outreach campaign, to encourage people to drink more water by informing them about the benefits and the body’s need to be constantly hydrated.
“As a company, we are committed to support the community through campaigns that give them the information they need to make healthy choices for the health and lifestyle benefits,” said GSD Marketing Ltd General Manager Brian Galea.
During the activites being held at different locations during the month of September, the Health Department is serving neutral water as well as fruit and herb infused water, also introducing the element of fun of an interesting and thirst-quenching drink.
“The campaign, which kicked off at the Mater Dei Hospital’s Outpatients Department followed by the Birkirkara Health Centre, focuses on the importance of incorporating water as an essential element in our diet and keeping hydrated all year round, particularly in the hot and humid months when the consequences of being dehydrated are even higher,” said Public Affairs and Communications Executive at GSD Marketing Ltd Clarissa Jones.
Other activities will be held throughout the month of September in front of the health centre in Paola and next to the Maltapost Office in Mosta.
