6 Reasons to drink more water today!
We’ve all heard that we should drink more water but it’s not always clear why. The main reason for drinking water every day is to replace fluid loss from everyday activities. Especially if you’re working out, our bodies lose a lot of fluid through sweat, which is great! But this water needs to be replaced.
Here is a list of six extra benefits that result from staying hydrated.
1. Prevents headaches
Dehydration causes normal body function to decrease and results in headaches. Drinking more water will keep you hydrated and assist with keeping those headaches at bay.
2. Prevents memory loss
A natural part of getting older is memory loss but one way to fight it is by drinking more H2O. Water boosts the energy needed to keep your brain active and an active brain remembers better for longer!
3. Lessens addictive urges
If you absolutely need those three cups of coffee a day to keep you going, then it might be a sign to introduce some more water into your day. By replacing coffee or soft drinks with water, your body is still receiving its usual amount of fluids but without the added nasties of caffeine or excessive sugar.
4. Cleanses toxins
Not just referring to toxic waste chemicals, but the general toxins and waste that your body produces throughout each day. Water encourages the toxins to break down and pass through your body much easier.
5. Increases muscle function
The heart, brain and lungs are all organs that we rely on for life and they rely on muscles. Water increases the efficiency of red blood cells carrying Oxygen to our muscles and therefore increases muscle performance.
6. Boosts metabolism
Drinking water keeps your metabolism busy and flowing smoothly. If combined with a number of other factors including your diet and exercise, it can assist in losing weight.
