‘Heart’ felt appeal by NI Water

13 February 2016 10:30

NI Water and H20 are asking everyone to ‘Love their Heart’ this Valentine’s Day.  The human heart is approximately 70% water, so while it might be hard to ‘break’ it certainly still needs to be looked after this Valentine’s weekend!

Water is a key ingredient for a healthy heart and our high quality drinking water is a perfect way to keep yourself hydrated and alert.  Water is fat free, sugar free, has no calories or caffeine.  It also helps to improve concentration and can prevent headaches, tiredness and bad breath – essential if you’re due a Valentine’s Day kiss!

Helping H20 keep his heart healthy this Valentine’s day are NI Water’s Fiona McComb and Timea Pap.

 

Water is something we all need every day; it helps blood to flow, circulating essential nutrients around the body – what’s more, keeping yourself hydrated can dramatically lower the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure.


As part of a process to keep your heart healthy and your body well hydrated, NI Water encourages everyone to drink the recommended 6-8 glasses of water per day.  Water can also help improve your physical appearance as well as keeping your heart healthy and full energy – vital for whatever Valentine’s Day activity you have planned!

Jane Jackson, Environmental Education Manager at NI Water comments: ‘‘Water is a key ingredient for a healthy heart and a healthy lifestyle, and our high quality drinking water in Northern Ireland is a perfect way to keep yourself hydrated and alert.  Water is fat free, sugar free, has no calories, no caffeine, no artificial additives – in short, it is 100% naturally good.  It also helps to improve concentration and can prevent headaches, dizziness, tiredness and bad breath – essential if you’re due a Valentine’s Day kiss!

‘‘70% of the heart and two thirds of the body are composed of water and we all have to stay ‘topped up’ and show our love for ourselves as well as the loves of our lives this Valentine’s Day!’’

NI Water carries out in excess of 100,000 tests on water quality every year to ensure that customers get the highest quality drinking water at the turn of a tap.
