• It may seem too simple and too cheap to be really true, but drinking eight large glasses of water a day is actually a big help in making kidneys function properly especially in older adults. Two new large studies found fewer kidney problems in people over 50 who drank more water and other fluids than people who drank less. In fact, those who drank the most water and other fluids, had “significantly lower risk” of chronic kidney disease.

    One study published in the Journal of Nephrology took place in Sidney, Australia. Another similar large study in Canada backed it up. It’s more than just a fashion to carry around that water bottle, it really is good for you.

    Several points to keep in mind. 1.You’ll have to urinate more 2. A high water intake with sugar or caffeine (soda, sugary juices) is a bad idea for obvious weight and health reasons and 3. Extreme excesses of water intake in a short period of time is dangerous as it dilutes needed electrolytes You may get a headache. Crazy water drinking competitions have even resulted in deaths.

    As a designer and entrepreneur, products for women have always been my focus. In my first company DianneSullivan Designs, I designed and made fun jewelry for young women to buy in boutiques and department stores. That company transitioned into Miraflores Designs which designed and supplied custom designed soap, shampoo and other toiletries for hotel chains including Hyatt, Sheraton and many others. After selling that company, my next company, Bay Linens, Inc, designed decorative bedding which was sold through Bloomingdales, Bed, Bath & Beyond and other retailers. Our home decor products, with the brand, China Seas, was sold at Isetan Department stores in Japan. At this stage of life I'm connecting with other women over 50 who want to examine their interests and to connect with each other. At ZestNow.com I want to gather useful information and inspiration for this new phase of life.
