Drinking water is life. Or so we’ve been told. Many people don’t drink enough water, which affects many aspects of their lives. Today, I’d like to show you the five benefits of drinking water that you’ve been overlooking and why you need to start drinking more water today!

Did you know that the body is made up of about 60% water? This means that water is absolutely essential for a healthy body. Here are 5 ways that drinking water will benefit you.

Drinking water increases brainpower and improves mood and memory.

 The brain is made of 73% water. This is why it’s not surprising that even minimal dehydration can affect your brain. Dehydration affects your mood, makes you more sensitive to pain, reduces your cognitive and motor skills and affects your memory, negatively. Being hydrated will help you think clearly, focus and concentrate better and stay alert. If you’re feeling stuck or stressed mentally, try a glass of water. You just might feel better!

Weight management and weight loss are easier.

Taking the right amount of water is easily the most recommended weight loss technique. This is because water does a lot of good in weight loss. Studies show that the brain cannot actually tell the difference between hunger and thirst. This means that a ‘hunger pang’ or ‘sugar craving’ might just mean that you need to drink water instead of eating anything. So, the next time you’re feeling hungry or craving something sweet, first drink a glass of water, it just might do the trick! Water also helps to improve the body’s metabolism which aids weight loss. Did you know that water can help to suppress your appetite?

Bonus tip: Take a glass of water before your meals. This will help you eat smaller portions and feel fuller faster!

Drinking water helps to detoxify the body.

Water helps to flush out the toxins and waste products in the body through sweating and urination. Most teas and herbal concoctions that claim to detoxify the body or flush your system are not necessary. Water is a cheaper and far better alternative. Drinking the right amount of water also helps to prevent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs). It does this by flushing out the toxins in the bladder that, if left there, could cause an infection.

Skin glow and anti-ageing benefit.

Many beauty queens and models swear by drinking water as the secret of their beauty. While it might seem like an exaggeration, water is actually very good for the skin and the complexion. Dehydration will cause wrinkles, dry and dull skin, and make the skin tight and irritable. Taking the right amount of water will make the skin soft, and supple and also remove wrinkles. Water plus a good skincare routine works magic!

Prevention of dehydration-induced headaches.

Dehydration is a common cause of headaches. Since the brain is 73% water, water is very important for optimal brain function. It has been observed in various studies that dehydration causes temporary shrinkage of the brain. This will result in headaches and even a lack of mental clarity. Drinking an adequate amount of water will help to prevent these headaches and keep our mental faculties running well.

Now that we’ve established that drinking water is necessary, another question to ask is whether or not cold water is good for the body. We’ve got you! Click here to see the benefits of drinking warm water.

Did you know that drinking too much water is also as bad as not drinking enough water? That’s right! Stay close to the blog so you’ll learn all about water intoxication!
