Everyones heard the age old saying that we should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. But why? Why do we have to drink so many glasses of water? What’s the point?
Well, there are many benefits of having water. Here are a few reasons you should drink a glass of water right now!
1. Our body is roughly 60% Water.
Drinking water regulates body temperature, transportation of nutrients and aids in digestion.
2. Water is fuel for our muscles
If our muscles don’t receive enough water they fatigue. Also during exercise we sweat a lot and we need to drink water to get our strength back.
3. Water also keeps your skin clear and healthy
Dehydration wrinkles your skin and gives it a dried out look. Drinking water, on the hand, flushes out toxins from our body and keeps us hydrated more than anything else can.
4. Drinking water keeps your weight in check
Water will help you feel fuller than you are, resulting in not eating a lot and keeping your waist trimmed!
5. Your kidneys will thank you
Your kidneys help clean your body and get rid of toxins you don’t need. Drinking water helps them work efficiently and prevents kidney stones!
6. Drinking water ensures you don’t have bad breath!
Water keeps your mouth moist and washes away food particles and bacteria. So no bad odour!! Wohoo!
7. There is no replacement for water
Which other drink do you know of that does all of these things? None. So there we have it.
These are only a few reasons why water is awesome for you. So go get that glass of water now and CHUG!
