BENEFITS OF DRINKING WATER

Our bodies are about 60 percent water, and to maintain optimal health, energy levels and mental clarity, it’s important to keep water consumption flowing.  Drinking plenty of fluids (at least 8 glasses a day) is essential for good health.   Here are ten good reasons why your body needs those 8 glasses daily.

1.   Water increases the efficiency of the immune system – helping to fight infection and ward off disease.

2.  Water helps reduce fatigue – it’s a main source of energy.

3.  Water helps to detoxify by clearing waste from certain parts of the body and transports it to the liver and kidneys for disposal.

4.  Water helps reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

5.  Water optimizes kidney and liver function.

6.  Water dilutes blood and prevents it from clotting during circulation (Blood is normally about 94% water when the body is fully hydrated.  Red blood cells are actually “water bags” that contain colored hemoglobin).

7.  Water is needed for manufacturing neurotransmitters, including serotonin.

8.  Water is essential for the body’s cooling system (sweat).

9.  Water hydrates skin to combat premature aging.

10.  Drinking plenty of water is key to losing weight
