You hear it everyday…water is essential for your mind, body and health.
Growing up, your mom probably tried to force it down your throat. But, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized how true this is. Water can benefit you so much. Whether it’s weight loss, beauty or improved health you are seeking… water is the solution. Let’s explore just how great water is for you!
Water hydrates your skin, leaving it radiant and clear. By drinking water, you flush out toxins, dirt and oil. According to sheknows.com, water can take credit for keeping your skin firm and tight. Water naturally fills and expands your cells from the inside out, thus reducing the look of wrinkles, cellulite and floppy skin. If you are prone to rashes, water will drastically benefit you. By drinking water, you will notice a marked improvement.
It’s very logical — people who drink more water, shed weight easier than those who don’t. Water keeps you full, so during meals you eat less. By drinking water throughout the day, you won’t get the urge to snack or grab sugary drinks such as soda, energy drinks, etc. According to Barry Popkin, director of the Interdisciplinary Obesity Program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, water causes the body to produce more heat, which boosts your metabolism and burns more calories.
Water intake gets rid of the chemicals and toxins that prevent hair growth. Remember, water hydrates and your hair is no exception. Drinking water is proven to improve hair growth, texture and shine.
By drinking water, you are strengthening your nails and preventing breaks. Your nails are apart of your body. When you keep your body hydrated, you are improving every aspect.
Water intake improves your blood flow and heart. Water thins your blood which is beneficial because it travels faster throughout your body and lowers your blood pressure. Lowering your blood pressure gives you a healthier heart and who doesn’t want that?
Drinking water will make you feel stronger and happier. It will boost your energy level and give you the confidence to be active.
HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH?
Experts recommend drinking 2.5 litres a day (6-8 glasses) — but everyone is different. The more water you drink, the more your body will crave. Listen to it and see how much your mind, body and health will improve.
