Your body must have water to function. Your cells, organs, and tissues are over 60% water, the blood that carries oxygen and nutrients throughout your body is 90% water and without water, your body would quickly overheat. Your body loses water through breathing, sweating, and digestion, so it is vital that you rehydrate by drinking water.

The benefits of drinking water include:

Healthy Digestion And Metabolism – Drinking water aids healthy digestion and metabolism. Water helps to break down food so that your body can absorb the nutrients during the digestive process without diluting digestive juices. Water also supports elimination, keeping you regular and avoiding constipation. Water helps to move waste through the small intestines and colon and helps eliminate toxins along the way through your gastrointestinal tract. Water softens stools and makes them easier to pass.

Healthy Glowing Skin – Drinking water keeps your skin hydrated, vibrant and glowing. The cosmetic benefits of drinking water include firmer skin and much healthier hair. Without adequate water your skin would be dry and flaky, particularly in cold climates or air conditioned workplaces. Your skin is the largest single organ of your body, and water is critical to maintain skin moisture and for transporting vital nutrients to your skin cells.

Water Supports Kidney Health – Staying hydrated can help prevent the formation of painful kidney stones. Water dilutes the salts and minerals that might otherwise build up in your kidneys and form stones. The kidneys serve a vital function, filtering waste from your blood.

Water Is An Essential Nutrient – Just like essential amino acids, your body cannot create its own water. Drinking plenty of water will prevent fatigue, dry skin, severe headaches, bowel irregularity and heat stroke.

Water Contains Zero Calories – Water is calorie-free and can also support fat burning and weight loss. Water is a healthy replacement for beverages that are high in sugar and calories like colas, soft drinks and bottled juices. Replace these beverages with cold water to eliminate the empty calories of these liquid sugar drinks.

The benefits of drinking water are clear, yet many people still don’t drink what they should to maintain health. There is little evidence to support drinking eight, 8 ounce glasses daily, but it is a good (and measurable) place to start. The actual amount of water you should drink every day depends on a variety of factors including your body weight, your activity level, the temperature and humidity and how much you sweat.
