5 Great Benefits of Drinking Water
With the new year comes resolutions to live a healthier life. One easy and effective way to achieve better health is to drink more water. Water helps keep you hydrated, which is important because every single cell in your body needs it in order to absorb nutrients and expel waste products. Here are 5 additional benefits you’ll see with drinking more water.
1) Drinking Water Keeps Your Body Young
Water is great for your skin. If you don't drink enough water, you'll suffer from dry skin, and you'll be likely to use more creams and lotions to moisturize. Instead, drink more water to keep your skin moisturized and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. And, if you don't drink enough water, your body will try to retain it which leads to water retention that makes your skin puffy and bloated.
2) You’ll Lose Weight Drinking Water
Water is filling, and water suppresses your appetite which means you won’t eat as much. Drinking plenty of water also prevents fluid retention, because your body won't try to retain water if it's getting enough. Water also helps your body burn stored fat. With more water, your liver metabolizes fat more efficiently because it isn’t helping your kidneys detoxify your body. And, drinking water flushes toxins from your body and prevents constipation.
3) Water is Good for Your Muscles
Another benefit of drinking water is that it makes your muscles stronger. Water carries oxygen to the cells of your body, including those of your muscles. Drinking plenty of water enables your muscles to work harder and longer before they feel tired, and this can help you build muscle.
4) Drinking Water Makes You Smarter
Did you know that drinking water can increase your cognitive function? Your brain depends on plenty of oxygen in order to function at optimum levels. Drinking water helps your brain get all the oxygen it needs and also supports nerve function. It ensures that your body's electrolyte levels remain high enough to allow your nerves to relay messages to and from the brain in the way they were meant to.
5) Drinking Water Is Good for Your Joints
Drinking water helps keep your joints strong, healthy and lubricated. Your joints need moisture in order to remain strong and flexible, so that your movements are smooth and pain free.
Water really is the best supplement you can take for improved health and wellness in 2016. So raise a glass of water and toast your good health in 2016.
