Top 10 Benefits of Drinking Water:
1. Increases Energy & Relieves Fatigue
Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!
2. Flushes Out nasty Toxins
Water helps to rid of waste via sweat and urination. This reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections).
3. Promotes Weight Loss and prevents weight gain
Bonus!!! Water removes by-products of fat, reduces our appetite (try drinking a glass prior to meals), raises your metabolism and has no calories! It also shouldn’t really be drunk with meals (for best results, avoid cold drinks with meals and drink after your meal).
4. Improves Skin Complexion and Tone
Water moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth (helps fine lines) and one of the best anti-aging treatment around!
5. Keep you regular
Aids in digestion as water is essential to digest your food and prevents constipation and this means we feel so much better.
6. Boosts Immune System
Who doesn’t want to feel healthy the majority of the time? Did you know that drinking plenty of water daily helps fight against flu, cancer and even other ailments like heart attacks?
7. Headache Remedy without the pills
Helps relieve and prevent headaches (migraines and back pain too!) which are commonly caused by dehydration. Drink up to 2 litres daily.
8. Prevents Cramps & Sprains
Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely. It is especially helpful after a massage.
9. Puts You In A Good Mood
When the body is functioning at its best, you will feel great and that means, you will be happier. Simple. Try drinking a glass of water for every glass of alcohol if you are out and about and plenty of it before bed to prevent any nasty hangovers. In fact, drinking a glass of water before bed and upon waking is a sure fired way to put you in the right frame of mind for the day. Yes, you will urinate more, but your body will adjust in time, and the benefits far outweigh the negatives of failing to drink enough water.
10. Save Money!
Water is FREE! Even if you choose bottled/filtered water, it’s STILL cheaper than that alternatives (coffee, tea, sugary laden drinks) which act as diuretics and full of sugar or fat.
I’ll drink to that!!!
