Despite the fact that most people know that our bodies are about 70% water many still don’t seem to be drinking enough of it.
The general advice since the mid 90’s was to drink 8 glasses of water a day but today that has been debunked; experts now think that if you drink between 5 and 8 glasses you will be hydrated enough.
But even this doesn’t seem to be happening. Many people have replaced water with beverages like coffee, juices, soda and smoothies because they assume that since they contain water they will keep them hydrated.
This is not true!
There are several reasons why you should make it a point to drink several glasses of purified water every day:
- It keeps your brain focused and your body energized. When you are dehydrated your body temperature spikes and this affects the way your brain and body work. If you go for a long time without drinking water you will eventually start to feel dull and accomplishing simple tasks will become difficult.
- Constipation is one of the most common digestive problems but what many people who suffer it don’t realize is that by increasing their water intake they can ease it. If you have a difficult time moving your bowels make it a point to drink several glasses of water a day. Not only will you feel better mentally and physically, you will find that you spend very little time in the toilet.
- People who drink lots of water seem to have clearer skin. This is because water helps get rid of toxins that accumulate in the blood and this benefit is transferred to the skin. If you suffer a dull complexion increase your water intake and you will see a difference.
