Keep Healthy, Keep Hydrated
There are many good reasons to drink water:
1. IMPROVES DIGESTION
Water is critical for efficient food digestion and absorption. Water also helps to prevent constipation, which can decrease good digestion and elimination.
2. REMOVES TOXINS
Water helps our bodies to naturally flush out toxins and waste. If you suffer kidney stones or urinary tract infections-drinking water will assist.
3. BOOSTS IMMUNEFUNCTION
Staying hydrated can help protect you from everything from the common cold and flu, to more serious diseases like cancer and heart attacks.
4. SUPPORTS HEALTHY WEIGHT
While water does not have any magical effect on weight loss, substituting higher calorie/sugary beverages with water can help. This keeps our appetite in check too.
5. PREVENTS HEADACHES
Many people suffer from headaches due to dehydration. If you are prone to headaches try increasing your water intake.
6. KEEPS YOUR MIND SHARP
Drinking water keeps your mind “hydrated” , improves concentration and keeps you alert.
7. DECREASES MUSCLE CRAMPS
A common cause of muscle cramps during sports activity is not getting enough fluids. Drinking water will ease the cramping.
8. MOISTURISES SKIN
Water keeps your skin soft and supple and may reduce wrinkles.
So next time you need to quench your thirst, choose water. Your body will thank you with good health.
