Whether it's a miracle cream or an anti-aging serum, the market is full of misleading products promising a restoration of youth. It turns out, times really haven't changed! In 1513 people were also searching for youthfulness and vitality; but not in any sort of cosmetic, in a fountain.
Yes, you may have heard of it already—the mystical and magical fountain of youth. The fountain was a magical water source thought to have the power to cure the sick and reverse the aging process. According to legend, the famous explorer, Ponce de Leon, stumbled across the great state of Florida while searching for the fountain. Some even think this magical water source is still in Florida. Placed in the central plaza of St. Augustine you will find a statue of the great Leon as well as a tourist attraction not far from there claiming to be the real fountain of youth. It attracts tens of thousands of hopeful tourists each year.
However, it may surprise you to learn that similar myths can be found throughout histroy. Tales of restorative waters can be found in ancient history all over the world including the Canary Islands, Polynesia, Japan, and England. During the Middle Ages, many Europeans believed in a hidden mythical kingdom containing a fountain of youth and roads of gold.
Although these stories are entertaining, no real, hard evidence exists to indicate there is any truth to them. The mystery of this magical fountain remains unsolved. Or does it? Did you know that water, on its own, already has a slew of restorative qualities? We’ve spoken a lot of the importance of staying hydrated in previous blogs. It can help you maintain a healthy weight, keep your ticker ticking longer, and even improve brain function. But did you know it can also slow the aging process?
Yes, you heard correctly. As you probably already know, water plays a HUGE role in our organ function. When you go long periods of time without water, it forces your organs to work harder than they would if you were properly hydrated. When organs work harder than they should, they get fatigued. If you want to extend the life of your organs, and therefore your life, hydration is key! Not to mention, the biggest organ in your body is your skin. Water helps retain its elasticity and prevent wrinkles.
