Water has always been my drink of choice.
From drinking out of the garden hose as a kid in Leesburg, Fl. to buying water in bottles as an adult, it has been a lifetime of consumption. There are a ton of reasons why I rarely drink anything else but for the purpose of this post, I will narrow it down to ten.
So without further ado, here are the top 10 benefits of drinking water.
1. Weight Loss
Did you know water has 0 calories? It also acts as an appetite suppressant when taken immediately before meals.
2. Increase Energy
Water has been shown to boost energy levels. In addition, it helps with concentration and focus.
Drinking enough water will help to clear your skin, remove wrinkles and act as a natural moisturizer.
If you suffer from constipation or related digestive problems, water is the answer. It is a free and natural remedy to any type of intestinal blockage.
5. Relieves Headaches
Chronic headaches are a problem for millions of people. Often, the solution can be found, not in medicine but in drinking more H2O. As with regularity, these problems are often caused by dehydration.
6. Immune System Boost
People who drink enough water tend to get sick much less often. Your body needs water for every cellular function. Why deprive it?
7. Prevents Cramps and Sprains
A hydrated muscle will not be susceptible to cramps. However, one with inadequate water will experience painful cramps quite often.
8. Elevates Mood
When the body if healthy, the mind follows. Staying hydrated will increase the feeling of well-being and make you want to jump up and down!
Water is free if you want it to be. Of course, you can choose the bottled water option or invest in a water treatment system. But it is always free if you want it to be.
10. Flushes Toxins
The best way to remove poisons from your body is to eliminate them through sweat or urine. To do this, you must be properly hydrated.
