Water is Life, Yes… Argreed
But do we know the purpose of water in our bodies, honestly speaking, I am sure I didn’t know how important water is to metabolism (Hehehehe… Feeling like a science student, that I am not)
So what do we need to know about water, that can help our bodies, and improve our glow
Around 60 percent of the body is made up of water, and around 71 percent of the planet’s surface is covered by water. Everyday 64 ounces of water is lost through perspiration, Just sweating…. What about exercising, you lose more.
These are some important reasons to drink loads of water
1) Water Helps Your Muscles Perform At Their Best: If you don’t drink enough water during physical activity, your performance can suffer. As little as a 2% loss of fluids can have a noticeable affect on your athletic abilities,for those of us into sport
2) Water Can Help Boost Your Brain Functions and Mood: The brain is mostly made of water and is highly sensitive to dehydration. Studies have shown that even mild dehydration (1-3%) can have an adverse effect on memory and feelings of anxiety
3) Drinking Water Helps Flush Toxins From Your Kidneys: Higher fluid intake increases the amount of urine that passes through your kidneys, helping to flush toxins from them and supporting normal kidney functions.
It also helps prevent the buildup of minerals which could turn into kidney stones, am sure we don’t want that.
4) Water Can Help Make Your Skin Look Good: The skin contains a lot of water. It also acts like a barrier preventing fluid loss throughout your whole body.
When you’re dehydrated, your skin will look more dry and wrinkled. But once you take in the proper amount fluids, it will look its normal, beautiful self again. Skin moisturizers also help create a physical barrier as well to lock in moisture, but remember to treat from within as well with lots of water.
5) Drinking Water Fights Bad Breath: Bad breath (halitosis) is caused by bacteria lodged in the grooves of your tongue, teeth, and gums. This buildup of bacteria causes bad smelling things called volatile sulfur compounds.
When your mouth is dry (like when you first wake up in the morning), you lack the saliva to rinse these compounds out of your mouth.
Drinking water helps flush these bacterias and keeps your mouth from having a build up the bad smelling compounds.
6) When dehydrated, airways are restricted by the body in an effort to minimize water loss. This can make asthma and allergies worse.
Am guessing, and believing that with all these reason, we will increase our water intake.
