Health Benefits of Drinking Quality Water
1) Weight Loss
When someone drinks water before eating, they feel fuller, eat less, and boost their metabolism in the process. Many people mistake thirst for hunger, so if you’re hungry try drinking some water.
2) Beat the Heat
When it’s hot out we sweat a lot. It’s important to stay hydrated during these times to keep exercising without getting dehydrated.
3) Aid Digestion
Water dissolves fats and fiber. Drinking enough water prevents constipation while also reducing the effort kidneys and liver needs to make.
4) Fight Fatigue
Athletes know that water is essential to ward off fatigue and exhaustion.
5) Protect Against (Some) Cancer
The more water you drink, the less chance you have of getting bladder cancer. Urinating often rids the body of carcinogens, so drinking water may also reduce the risk of colon and breast cancer.
6) Enhance Your Mood
Mild dehydration affects your mood, so keep drinking water to stay clear-headed.
7) Prevent Headaches
Dehydration can cause headaches on its own, and it can trigger migraines.
8) Functioning Kidneys
Kidneys remove waste from our bodies and control blood pressure, and they need water to keep operating at peak efficiency.
9) Energize Yourself
When people are tired often they’re just dehydrated. Simply drinking some water could perk them right up.
10) Stay Alert
Keep drinking that water because dehydration negatively impacts focus, memory, and motor skills.
11) Protect Joints and Cartilage
Water keeps joints lubricated and protects our spinal cord. Cartilage, which coats our bones, is 85% water.
12) Exercise in the Winter
Working out in the winter often requires layering up for warmth. This can cause you to lose more fluids through sweat than you realize, so it’s important to stay hydrated even when the weather is cold.
13) Prevent Hangovers
Alcohol dehydrates you which can lead to hangovers. Drinking water with your alcohol helps prevent hangovers.
14) Think Clearer
Dehydration slows down your brain function.
15) Stay Healthy with Gargling
If you gargle regularly you’re less likely to catch upper respiratory infections.
16) Balance Your Fluids
60% of the human body is made of water so drinking water helps our body transport nutrients, aid in digestion, regulate temperature, etc.
17) Drink It Instead of Alternatives
Sugar found in juice or soda leads to weight gain and inflammation of the arteries
