So. Drinking is important. We all know this and we are doing our best to drink enough water (tons of help out there not to forget those daily 10 glasses of water).
Here’s what staying hydrated is good for and what benefits you can see after having made an effort with drinking enough for a while.
FIGHT THAT FATIGUE
Water is one of the most important sources of energy for your body. It helps cells complete important enzymatic activities which contribute to good sleep, restoration of bodily systems, and the production of energy to get you through your day.
REDUCE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
When the body is fully hydrated, the blood is about 92% water. This way the blood can move freely through the veins and arteries, helping to prevent high blood pressure and other cardiovascular ailments.
REDUCE SKIN CONDITIONS
With proper hydration, the skin glows. Without it, our skin cannot properly rid itself of toxins so it becomes irritated, inflamed, and congested, causing a bunch of unwanted results such as blackheads, redness, acne, premature aging and general blotchiness.
Here’s the scoop: when our cells are depleted of water, they cannot create energy we need to function, and so they send a signal to the brain to ‘get more goods.’ This means you will eat more, and likely gain some unwanted pounds. To avoid this, simply stay hydrated and your cells will stay happy and not send ‘fat signals’ to the brain.
Also, replacing other drinks with water will help naturally keep the weight off.
