Drink to your health: The benefits of water

Maintaining good health requires more than exercise, rest and eating right. If you want to see real results, you also have to raise a glass (or several) to your health each and every day.

The contents of those glasses, however, matter a great deal. While low-sugar juices and an occasional

glass of water

pop aren’t likely to do you any harm, it takes only water to fuel up right.

Why water?

There are several key reasons why it pays to drink at least 1.5 litres of water each and every day. The fact of the matter is the body is made up of a high concentration of water and without it all systems tend to function rather poorly. The kidneys, for example, must have a steady dose of water daily to function at their peak. Those who don’t drink enough water also put themselves at higher risk for dehydration, which can leady to weariness, fatigue, difficulty in concentrating and even death in extreme cases.

While all of those reasons stand on their own for making a good daily dose of water make perfect sense, there are more. They include:

  • Water can help with weight loss – in and of itself water won’t help you lose weight, but it can cut out a lot of calories in the daily routine. Plus, it can help the body feel fuller, which can prevent snacking.
  • Water helps energize the body – This basic liquid is critical for muscle health. When the body is well hydrated, muscles tend to function better and they avoid fatigue that can side line exercise routines.
  • Making the skin look better– Water is an excellent ingredient in a skin care routine. When plenty of water is consumed, the body tends to be healthier overall and this includes the skin. Dehydrated skin tends to look dry and wrinkled; hydrated skin is generally plumper and healthier looking.

Tips For Working Water into the Daily Routine

Making sure the body gets enough water doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are some tips that can help:

  • Drink a small glass of water with every meal and snack.
  • Carry water with you wherever you go; especially to the gym.

  1. For the last 40 days, I haven’t drunk any soda and have primarily just been drinking water. From my experience, I have to say that your point about water helping the body to feel better is spot on! By cutting out the calories from sugary drinks and focusing on hydrating my body appropriately, I feel so much more energetic, focused and can concentrate a lot better at work.
