5 Unexpected Reasons To Drink More Water

20140116-083722.jpg

The following are a few tips on the importance of drinking water that were handed down to us at work this week:

1. Fluid Balance: 60% of the body is composed of water. Water is crucial in transporting nutrients through the body, regulating body temperature, digesting food, and keeping the body on track.

2. Calorie Control: Numerous studies have found a connection between water consumption and losing a few pounds. Water helps one to feel full and, therefore, consume fewer calories. Replacing sodas with water also aids in weight loss.

3. Clearer Skin: Water targets and flushes out the toxins that cause skin to inflame, aiding in the prevention of acne and clogged pores.

4. Pain Prevention: Aching joints and muscle cramps and strains can all occur if the body is dehydrated. Drinking more water can help to both relieve and prevent pain.

5. Sickness Fighter: Water fights decongestion and dehydration, helping the body bounce back when feeling under the weather.
