Top 10 Health Benefits of Drinking Water

Dollarphotoclub_66748734Everyone knows that drinking water daily is very important to your health. But do you know why it is so important?

 “Water helps keep the body well hydrated, which is essential because almost every cell in the body needs water to function properly.”

We need water to survive, but drinking enough to get by isn’t ideal for your body. Water is required to cushion and lubricate your joints, protect your brain and other internal tissues, regulate your body temperature, and remove waste from your body through urination, bowel movements, and perspiration. You’ve probably heard that our bodies are made mostly of water, and it’s true. We need it.

When you don’t have enough water, you’ll become dehydrated. When you’re dehydrated you’ll experience dry mouth, low blood pressure, headaches, dizziness, dry skin, and worst of all, fatigue. You might be dehydrated and you don’t even realize it. A simple way to tell is by taking a look at the color of your urine. A light, transparent yellow (or clear) is what you want to aim for. Anything darker usually means you’re not getting enough.

 “The amount of water you consume everyday plays an important role in maintaining a healthy body. Experts recommend drinking eight to 10 glasses of water each day to maintain good health.”
