Some of us need our daily cuppa of caffeine fix every day and yet neglect our body’s need of plain water. Not carbonated soft drinks or sugary drinks but pure natural water.
Ensuring that you are adequately hydrated has its benefits.
- Maintain Balance
Your body is composed of about 60% water. Drinking sufficient water maintains y our body’s fluid balance which aids in digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, regulation of body temperature.
- Weight Loss
Drinking water can actually help with weight loss. Water gives you a feeling of satiety and as a result you consume lesser food. Drinking more water also raises your metabolism and it has zero calories.
- Healthy Skin
Your skin contains plenty of water but don’t expect over-hydration to totally erase your wrinkles and fine lines. Water can keep your skin moisturized, keeping it fresh and glowing. You can slap on some moisturizer to create a physical barrier to keep the moisture in.
- Healthy Kidneys
Body fluids transport waste in and out of our cells. If you have an adequate level of fluid in your body, your kidneys can cleanse and rid your body of toxins efficiently. If you constantly not have enough water in your body, you might be at higher risk for kidney stones.
