5 Benefits of Drinking More Water!
Do you drink enough water? Most days for the past year, I have done very well with my water intake. Now that I am used to drinking more water, I notice quickly if I am getting dehydrated.
Why do you want to drink more water? Here are 5 reasons to consider increasing your water intake.
1. Makes your body work more efficiently:
Your body is 60% water. The water in your body transports nutrients, regulates your body temperature, aids digestion and helps your circulation.
2. Weight Loss/Control:
Water helps the body efficiently process the food you eat. It helps to give you that full feeling, meaning you will want less food.
3. Energizes Muscles:
When muscle cells don’t have enough fluids, they do not work as well.
When exercising, it’s important to drink before, during and after. This will help you avoid avoid the negative effects of dehydration that can occur when sweating.
4. Removal of Toxins:
Clean and pure water flushes out toxins in the body through sweat, bowel movements and urine.
5. Reduce Headaches:
Regularly occurring headaches may be caused by dehydration.
Health Issues related to dehydration include:
- dry skin
- muscle cramps
- bad breath
- mood swings
- difficulty concentrating
By simply increasing our water intake, we can feel much beter and function more efficiently. Give it a try!
Be Well and Take Care Of YOU!
