So many of us live in a constant state of searching for health. We feel overwhelmingly tired and achy. We have brain fog and blotchy skin. We have weight issues. We shell out big cash for supplements and shakes and gyms. All to little (or no) benefit. Are you getting enough water?
1. Relieves Fatigue
If you often feel tired, there is a high chance that it could be due to inadequate consumption of water which makes the body function less efficiently. In fact, fatigue is one of the first signs of dehydration.
2. Flushes Out Toxins
Water is an excellent detoxifier as it helps flush out toxins from your body and get rid of waste primarily through sweat and urine, also promotes kidney function and reduces kidney stones by diluting the salts and minerals in urine that cause kidney stones.
3. Helps with Weight Loss
In a clinical trial, scientists found that drinking two eight-ounce glasses of water prior to meals can help suppress appetite and support your weight loss efforts. When you drink water, it fills your stomach and reduces the tendency to eat more.
4. Helps Improve Your Mood
Research indicates that mild dehydration (even one or two percent lower hydration level of hydration than optimal) can negatively affect your mood and ability to think. The color of your urine is a good indicator of your level of hydration. The lighter the color the better the level of hydration and vice versa. (true story)
5. Helps in Digestion and Constipation
Oh Yes! Water also improves the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. This helps in digestion and prevents constipation. Inadequate water in the body often results in constipation as the colon pulls water from the stools to maintain hydration, thereby making them harder and difficult to pass.
6. Helps Treat Headaches and Migraines
Did you know if you have a headache or migraine, the first thing that you can do to get some relief is drink plenty of water? Headaches and migraines are often caused by dehydration.
7. Radiant Healthy Skin
Water keeps the body well hydrated and improves capillary blood flow, which promotes healthier and younger-looking skin. Water helps replenish skin tissues, moisturizes skin and increases the elasticity in your skin.
