WATER AND YOUR HEALTH; WHY YOU NEED TO TAKE WATER






It’s an undisputed fact that we need to drink water regularly for our body to function properly but despite the fact that we know we need water, moist of us probably don’t realize the importance of drinking water is for our own good.
I wonder why we can’t spend less on drinking clean and safe water and yet we can spend more on treating Kidney stones, diabetes, and treating of other diseases.
Why not prevent spending on unusual disease when you can just stay healthy drinking 10-15 glasses of water which is equivalent to approximately 4 liters of water daily. The reason why water is very important is because it is the fuel the body uses to operate and every system in the body depends on water to function properly.
If the brain is 80% water, the muscle and heart is 75% water, the lungs are 90% water, the blood is 83% water, the bones are 30% water and even the skin is 64% water which makes about two-third of the adult human body made of water then why won’t you need water for proper functionality.
I think it is very important you see water as an important nutrient for your body and since water is one of the classes of food, I think the message of this article will be well appreciated.


This article will explain the benefits of drinking water to your health.


THE FIRST BENEFIT OF DRINKING WATER IS TO KEEP YOUR BRAIN FUNCTIONING WELL
As explained above that the brain is made of 80% water, drinking water will help the brain;
  • Reduce stress
  • Increase flow of blood and oxygen to your brain
  • Maintain the memory function 
  • Drinking water will also prevent you from having headaches, if you have headaches, drinking water will relieve headache. 
  • Lastly drinking water helps you balance your moods and emotions
The bottom line; we need water for our psychological well being and the brain needs it more because it is the central Nervous system.


ANOTHER REASON WHY YOU NEED TO DRINK WATER IS BECAUSE IT HELPS YOU MAXIMIZE YOUR PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE.
Without water your physical performance can be affected. Our daily routines may sometime be hectic and you need water to keep you going.
Immediately you are 2% short of water, your body temperature is altered, your motivation begins to reduce and there is increased fatigue. This is because about 75% of the muscle is made of water.
But optimal hydration will definitely prevent all this from happening and will help you maximize your physical performance

The bottom line; the muscles need water to help you perform your daily task.


DRINKING THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF WATER HELPS IN PROMOTING WEIGHT LOSS
May wonder how drinking water will reduce weight loss. It does this by removing the by-products of fat and reduces eating intake by filling up your tummy if consumed before you take your meals.
Water also helps in raising metabolism in the body. Another point I will like t add is that water has Zero Calories. 

The bottom line; Weight is connected directly to calories, no calories in foods or drinks, no excess weight, more calories results in adding weight.


WATER HELPS IN FLUSHING OUT TOXINS FROM THE BODY
The more water you take, the more you urinate. Urine and sweat are the two major ways by which toxins leave the body and with water, you will get rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI urinary tract infections

The bottom line; you drink more water →you urinate/ sweat more often → Toxins leave the body.


MAINTAINS REGULARITY
Water is essential for our food to digest and to prevent constipation; taking water will definitely help you in digesting your food. 

The bottom line; Water aids the digestion of your food.


PREVENTS CRAMP AND SPRAINS
It’s important I let you know that Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic.

The bottom line; If you are properly hydrated, the tendency to have cramps or sprains is very low. 


IMPROVE SKIN COMPLEXION
drinking water helps to moisturize your skin, Water keeps the skin fresh, soft glowing and smooth. Lastly water helps get rid of wrinkles because it is the best anti-aging treatment around. 

The bottom line; Drink more water and look younger 


BOOST IMMUNE SYSTEM
The probability that a water guzzler will fall sick is very low, this is because drinking plenty water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments.
