Professionally known as Alex Gonzaga, Catherine Cruz Gonzaga-Morada, 33, knows the importance of drinking enough water regularly. The vlogger with almost 11 million YouTube subscribers takes two liters of water a day.
“I know how water flushes out all the toxins in your body that you get from whatever you eat or drink,” Alex said. “I always feel good after drinking water and I also drink water to lose weight. It helps me to stay regular and I noticed that my puson (belly) is trimmer when I take water instead of juices and sugary drinks.”
Alex’s sister Celestine Cruz Gonzaga-Soriano, 37, professionally known as Toni Gonzaga, is also a certified water buff. The sisters were recently selected as the official icons of Nature’s Spring Water.
Toni is meticulous about the water she drinks so she makes sure it is always bottled water she is taking because it is safe and sealed so it can be trusted. She shared, “When you drink water, you’re moisturizing your body and your inner beauty.”
“Your cells are given more life and this helps you glow,” Toni continued. “When you’re clean from within, you glow.”
Hailing from Taytay, Rizal, Philippines, Alex and Toni are the daughters of Carlito “Bonoy” Gonzaga, 61, and Crisanta “Pinty” Cruz Gonzaga, 65. Alex is married to Michael “Mikee” Morada, 33, while Toni is married to Paul Soriano, 39.
Contrary to common impressions, drinking more water will reduce bloat and flush out toxins, minimizing the harmful results of salty foods and snacks. If water is consumed instead of high-calorie drinks, it reduces calorie intake, as well.
Drinking a glass of water before a meal can help decrease appetite, help with portion control, aid in food digestion and boost metabolism. While experts recommend drinking eight glasses or two liters per day, water requirements may differ based on age, environment and activity levels.
