Benefits of Drinking Water & How Much You Should Drink
It keeps us alive, quenches our thirst, and keeps our bodies running at an optimal level. But what are some of the real benefits besides keeping us alive? How does it positively impact our system? And how much should we have anyways?
Here Are Some of the Benefits of Drinking Water!
Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus better, and be more alert. On top of that, your energy levels go through the roof!
By drinking water, your belly fills up and your hunger is reduced. It also boosts your metabolism and has zero calories.
Have Great Skin
Drinking water moisturises your skin, keeping it fresh, soft and glowing. It gets rid of wrinkles and takes years off your appearance.
Boosts Immune System
If you drink enough water, your likelihood of sickness is significantly reduced. Regular consumption of water helps fight against the flu, cancer, and other serious diseases.
Gets Rid of Headaches
Often headaches are caused by dehydration. Want to get rid of that headache that keeps coming up? Drink up!
On top of it being the best liquid you could ever put into your body, it is absolutely free at most restaurants. Heal your body and your bank account at the same time!
Puts You in a Great Mood
The way we treat our bodies has a significant impact on our emotional well being. The healthier our bodies are, the better handle we will have on our emotional states.
Recommended water intake:
Many experts say that you should aim for 8 cups of water a day. But considering all of our bodies are different, a better measure is half your weight in ounces daily.
Weight Divided by 2 = Water intake in ounces
A male that weighs 180lbs should have around 90 ounces of water daily (11.25 cups)
A Female that weights 130lbs should have around 65 ounces of water daily (8.125 cups)
