Health Benefits of Drinking Water
Many people with serious illnesses would give anything for a single day of perfect health. After all, it’s only when you lose your health that you realize what you once had. To be healthy and make the most of what you’ve got, follow these Health Benefits of Drinking Water recommendations.
Water also clears your skin, helps your kidneys, helps to control your appetite, and keeps you energized. If being healthier, more wakeful, and having better skin isn’t motivation, what is?
It also keeps you from drinking unhealthy beverages like soda and juice, which are high in calories. The body barely registers the intake of these unhealthy drinks and yet you still feel thirsty hundreds of calories later.
If you need the taste, splash some lemon, lime, or 100% juice into your water. However, be sure that you eat plenty of calcium-rich foods, such as broccoli, to support healthy bones as you grow older.
Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!
Removes by-products of fat, reduces eating intake (by filling up your tummy if consumed prior to meals), reduces hunger (hello natural appetite suppressant!), raises your metabolism and has zero calories!
Gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections).
Moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. Gets rid of wrinkles. It’s the best anti-aging treatment around!
Aids in digestion as water is essential to digest your food and prevents constipation.
A water guzzler is less likely to get sick. And who wouldn’t rather feel healthy the majority of the time? Drinking plenty of water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks.
Helps relieve and prevent headaches (migraines & back pains too!) which are commonly caused by dehydration.
Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely.
When the body is functioning at its best, you will feel great and be happy!
