Here are 10 reasons why drinking lots of water makes a lot of sense.
Pick the ones that make you really thirsty:
1. Water keeps you young
Did you know that babies are almost entirely made up of water? 90% to be exact. As we grow older we lose the 20% to toxins, which by that time have settled snugly in our body cells. The secret to staying young is in figuring out how to get back the percentage.
2.Water reduces your appetite and love handles
Often when we think we’re hungry, we’re actually just thirsty.
When we do not drink enough water our metabolism slows down. Conversely, drinking 0,5 l water in one serving not only makes us full, but it also increases fat burning capacity by 30 percent. So, more water, less fat.
3. Water improves your digestion and regularity
Drinking water 30-60 min before meals helps produce enough amount of digestive juices to break down food and absorb vital nutrients. Water, along with fiber, keeps your gut in a great shape, and this key to regular and effortless bowel movements. And as you probably know – there is no forward movement without a bowel movement.
4. Water keeps your head clear and boosts your brain power
Brain is the most water dependent organ. Lose just 1 percent of your body’s water level and expect to get a headache. Stay dehydrated and you might develop migraines . Water relieves and prevents any such aches, helps you think, focus, concentrate and be more alert. It is the ultimate food for thought!
6. Water keeps you feeling and smelling fresh
Your body uses water also to help flush out toxins and waste products through sweat and urine. This keeps these body fluids less concentrated, less odorous, and on top of that, reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections). ‘Chanel No. 5’ somehow cannot make the same claim.
7. Water improves your skin complexion
Water moisturizes the skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. Prevents wrinkles. It’s the best anti-aging treatment around!
8. Water keeps you healthy and limber
Drinking plenty of water helps lubricate your muscles and joints, and prevents muscle stiffness, joint and back pain. Water guzzlers not only have it easier to bend themselves into a pretzel, but are also less likely to get infections. This is an unexpected twist.
9. Water safeguards your heart
Speaking of a matter close to the heart…
Studies are showing that drinking a good amount of water could lower your risk of heart attack.
10. Water protects you against cancer
Drinking at least 5 glasses of water daily slashes the risk of the most common cancers: colon cancer by 45%, breast cancer by 79%, and bladder cancer by 50%.
