BENEFITS OF DRINKING WATERJuly 5, 2013
Most of us want to live a healthy lifestyle and have a fit body. Not many of us though get really serious about it and take steps such as going on a diet and exercise daily. I have been telling myself to get fit but sometimes I forget my goals when I become busy with work, motherhood and all tasks that come in between. Though I might not be religiously doing exercise or eat healthy foods I still keep a few healthy habits in mind. One of this is drinking sufficient amount of water. We have been told since we were little to drink at least eight glasses of water daily. Water means solely water without additives or in the form of juice or teas, just pure unadulterated water. But even this simple task is sometimes not done. Maybe knowing the any benefits of drinking water will inspire us.
Drinking Water Helps Balance Our Body Fluids
Our body is made up of 60% water and water helps in maintaining the balance of the body fluids. Drinking water fulfills the essential requirement of water our body demands. The functions of the fluids in our body include creation of saliva, circulation, digestion and transportation of nutrients.
Drinking Water can Help You Lose Weight
Yes this is true because water helps in suppressing your appetite. Drinking water before meal makes you fill full so you don’t eat as much. It also helps in burning stored fats. Drinking water helps put metabolism and it flushes toxins from your body and prevents constipation.
Drinking Water is Good For Your Skin
We all want to have a radiant and younger looking skin right? Water can help us with that. Of course we all know that bathing with water can clean us from the outside but drinking water can help us more in maintaining our general appearance. Drinking plenty of water moisturizes your skin and even reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine line. It also helps in combating some skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema and spots
Drinking Water Helps in Building Muscles
Water carries oxygen to the cells of your body which includes the muscles. Drinking plenty of water allows your muscles to work harder and longer before they feel tired thus helping in strengthening and building your muscles.
Drinking Water Helps Fight Colds and Flu
Every time we have colds or flu we are advised to have “water therapy” which means drink plenty of water. Drinking water helps in maintaining body temperature and plays an important role in boosting our immune system. Now after knowing all these benefits, I’m pretty sure that you will be more encouraged to drink eight glasses a day.
