We’re all told to drink more water – 'Drink 8 glasses a day and you will feel amazing, healthy, vibrant, youthful...' - the list goes on. But why exactly should you drink more water? Let Me Count the Ways...
1. Increases Energy
Your brain is mostly water so when you hydrate yourself you are increasing it's ability focus, concentrate and be more alert. One of the main reasons for tiredness is dehydration, so before reaching for a coffee in the morning, try a glass of water instead!
2. Promotes Weight Loss
Drinking water before meals helps you to eat less; it naturally suppresses your appetite and it has no calories! Studies have shown that there is a connection between drinking more water, weight loss and maintenance.
3. Flushes Out Toxins
Drinking water helps to get rid of waste both through sweat and urination; which rids you of any nasties in your system. Flushing out your body also reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections).
4. Maintains Digestion
Drinking water helps to keep you regular by aiding digestion and preventing constipation. By adding water to your colon, it helps things run smoothly.
5. Prevents Cramp
Water helps keep the muscles and joints lubricated, which helps to prevent cramp and avoid sprains.
6. Muscle Building
When we exercise our muscles lose water through sweat and when they get dehydrated, you lose energy. Drinking enough water will help prevent this, allowing you to push through and finish your workout!
7. Prevents headaches
Dehydration is a major cause of headaches and migraines – keeping yourself hydrated with water will prevent them from happening. They are also the trick to curing them, so when reaching for a painkiller - drink a glass of water too.
8. Improves Skin
Water moisturizes your skin keeping it fresh, soft and glowing. We pinky promise that you will see improvements in your reflection when upping your water intake. When all the nasty toxins have been flushed out of your system it helps to reduce spots and imperfections too.
9. Save Money
Water is free and even if you prefer the bottled variety, it’s still much cheaper than a high-sugar, high-calorie latte. PREACH!
10. Boosts immune system
If you drink enough water, you’re less likely to get sick – it helps fight against flu and dramatically reduces the risk of more serious conditions, such as heart attacks.
