There are plenty of reasons to drink water.
In fact, drinking water (whether plain or in foods) is essential to your health.
Here are five:
Promotes Weight Loss
Studies have shown that increased water consumption has led to people feeling more "full", which reduces hunger. Drinking water regularly can also help raise your metabolism. Plus, it has zero calories !
Your skin contains a lot of water. This water functions as a protective barrier to prevent excess fluid loss. Water can also flush out the toxins in your body that cause skin inflammation, helping to reduce the risk of future breakouts.
Did you know the most common symptom of dehydration is feeling tired and sluggish? Before you make a fresh pot of coffee (which acts like a diuretic, drying your skin), try drinking a full glass of water instead.
Another common symptom of dehydration is headaches. Instead of downing a few tablets, drink a glass of water instead to help relieve your pain.
Regulates Body Temperature
Drinking water helps improve your body's sweat production. This allows heat to be released from your body when sweat evaporates from the surface of the skin. So important, as we move into another long, hot summer.
