The average human body is 75% water. Blood is 92% water. Muscles are 75% water. Bones are 22% water. Long story short, water is a BIG part of the human body, literally. In case you are still leery of increasing your water intake (or simply forget to drink enough), here are some reasons to drink up:
- Boost Weight Loss
Drinking cold water can speed up your metabolism and burn more calories. Weight loss supplement anyone?
- Improve Organ Function
Getting enough H2O prevents toxins and acid waste from creating an environment for bacteria to thrive in your bladder and kidney.
- Say Goodbye To Fatigue
Water is the most vital source of energy in the body. Lack of it causes tiredness and fatigue.
- Look Younger
Drinking plenty of water helps moisturize skin. When chronically dehydrated, the body’s largest organ, the skin, begins to wrinkle and wither prematurely.
- Health Issues Be Gone
Asthma? Allergies? High blood pressure? All of these issues can be improved when you keep yourself hydrated.
- Hello Brain Function
Water is a natural headache remedy… those pesky head pains are often caused by dehydration.
So have a nice cool glass of water as soon as you awaken! Water, it does a body better than any other beverage out there!
