The Top 10 Benefits of Drinking Water

With today being World Water Day, it’s only appropriate to highlight the tremendous health benefits in drinking more water! As with most things, the amount of water for each person should drink a day varies between each individual. Some suggest 8 (8 oz) glasses a day while others suggest taking your body weight (in pounds), dividing it in half, and drink that many ounces. But first and foremost, you must listen to what your body needs. For many, drinking that much water a day can be a challenge, however, feel free to add some flavor to your water via some fresh citrus flavors from limes or lemons, a couple sprigs of mint, or even a few berries or cucumbers. Whatever your preference, let’s toast a glass of H2O to the goal of drinking more of it!

BOOSTED ENERGY: Dehydration zaps you of energy, leaving you feel depleted and tired. Not only will water be an ideal pick-me-up, it also encourages your heart to pump blood more effectively through your body, helping to effectively transfer oxygen and other essential nutrients to your cells.

WEIGHT LOSS: Drinking more water is a key to losing weight. Not only does it have zero calories, but it also is a natural appetite suppressant, reduces eating intake if consumed before meals, and also helps boost your metabolism – especially if your glass is icy cold. Because of this, your body must work to warm the water up, burning a few extra calories in the process.

STRESS RELIEF: Approximately 70% to 80% of your brain is made up of water. If you’re dehydrated, your body and your mind are stressed. Also, the body is functioning at its best when properly hydrated, which helps you feel great and contributes to your happiness.

IMPROVED FITNESS: Drinking water helps prevent muscle cramps and lubricates the body’s joints. When you’re well hydrated, you can exercise for extended periods of time at optimum performance.

BETTER SKIN:Drinking water hydrates skin cells and nourishes them, making your face look younger. It also flushes out toxins and improves circulation and blood flow, helping your skin glow. Also, dehydration brings out the fine lines and wrinkles in your face, so keeping hydrated will do wonders to making your skin look its best!

REGULAR DIGESTION:Water helps break up particles of waste in your body and helps pass them smoothly through your digestive tract. Dehydration leaves your colon dry, making it difficult to pass waste.

GETS RID OF IMPURITIES:Drinking plenty of water gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections). Specifically it dilutes the impurities in your urine that can build up to create kidney stones.

BOOSTED IMMUNITY:Regularly drinking enough water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks. Also, a well hydrated body is one that is put in a position to operate at its best!

HEADACHE REMEDY:A lot of headaches and body pains are as a result of being dehydrated. Hydrate your body well to either prevent or get rid of these aches.

SAVE MONEY:Water is readily available and in most cases, free! Even bottled water and filtered water is cheaper than sugary drinks and sodas.
