8 Reasons To Drink More Water

By  |  0 Comments

There’s a reason why they call water the source of life, our blood is 90% water. The bloodstream provides your cells and organs with oxygen and nutrients, and takes away any waste products. As you can see, blood is essential and important. Drinking water is essential to your health.

If we don’t drink sufficient amount of water, you will be impacting your physical and mental health and speeding up the aging process. Water is that important. For the most of us, we should prioritise the consumption of water far more than we currently do.

In general, you need about 2 Liters of pure water a day.You might need more if you live in a warm or dry climate,if you are pregnant, or breastfeeding. Plus, take into account the diuretic effects of coffee, tea, alcohol, and sodas, as well as salty foods.

The benefits of drinking water really are endless. Why should we drink more water? Below are seven very good reasons to boost your water intake:

1. You’ll digest your food better.

If you’re spending a bit too much time and effort on the toilet, you should probably increase your water intake. The body is very clever: it knows that the vital organs need essential nutrients more than the rest of your body, taking moisture from wherever it’s available. Hence constipation, and bloated stomach.

Nobody wants to deal with digestion issues. Luckily, drinking enough water adds fluids to the colon which helps make things, ahem, move smoothly

2. Fatigue buster

If you struggle with a puffy face and sunken eyes with dark circles, you’re being warned that your kidneys are in distress.You are not drinking enough water. Water can help fight those tired eyes. One of the most common symptoms of dehydration is tiredness. Just another reason to drink more water!

3. Kidney function

Our kidneys process 200 quarts of blood daily, sifting out waste and transporting urine to the bladder. Yet, kidneys need enough fluids to clear away what we don’t need in the body. Your kidneys cleanse and get rid of your body’s toxins as long as your intake of fluids is adequate.

4. Clearer skin

Certain toxins in the body can cause the skin to inflame, which results in clogged pores and acne . Water does flush out these toxins and can reduce the risk of pimples.

5. You’ll lower your body fat.

Forget other diet tricks—drinking water could also help with weight loss. This will probably surprise you, but being dehydrated can make you gain weight! As mentioned earlier, the body will use all other fluids available when it’s dehydrated. By pulling water out of the bloodstream, excess glucose will remain until it reaches the liver, where it’s supposed to be stored as glycogen for later use.

6. You’ll curb your appetite.

Do you constantly feel hungry? Drink a glass of water. Water acts as an appetite suppressant, water helps people feel full, and as a result consume fewer calories. If you need some taste, you can add a bit of lemon juice, or a splash of açai or pomegranate juice without any added sugar.

7. Productivity boost

In order to really focus, a glass of water could help people concentrate and stay refreshed and alert

8. You’ll help your body do its job.

Lack of water is also linked to headaches, pain and tension in muscles and joints. It even causes stomachaches and heartburn. Everything is connected in the human body, and it’s important not to neglect one of its fundamental tools that helps it do its job successfully and with ease – WATER.
