7 Reasons To Keep Hydrated

water7 Reasons To Keep Hydrated

Every doctor, dietitian, fitness expert, and parent says the same thing: Drink more water. If you're one of those people who aren't convinced of hydration's many benefits, here are some very important reasons why drinking water matters.

  • It curbs your appetite

Sometimes when you feel hungry, you may actually just be thirsty. Instead of reaching for a snack, try first drinking a glass of water and see if your hunger subsides.

  • It has zero calories

Drinking water instead of soft drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks and alcohol can reduce a substantial amount of caloric intake that your body isn't even craving. Not only is this a good way to maintain a healthy diet, but it might just make enough of an impact to help you maintain a healthy weight. Plus, you can always give it some flavour by adding a lemon, lime or orange wedge.

  • It will give you an energy boost

A glass of water may be more effective at boosting your energy than a cup of coffee. This is because sometimes, the root cause of our fatigue is actually a lack of hydration.

  • It's good for your skin

We all want glowing, radiant skin but one secret to nice skin isn't in expensive creams and cleansers, it's in your tap. Drinking more water can help your skin look its best and ward off wrinkles. Don't expect overnight results, but if you get in the habit of hydrating your body adequately, your skin will look better.

  • It helps keep you regular

Your digestive tract needs water to work properly, so if you're experiencing tummy troubles, reach for the water first.

  • It's essential for exercise

While experts haven't agreed on one universal amount, the old rule of thumb is you should be drinking 8 glasses (or 2 liters) of water a day. This is especially important for those who are active as performance declines with dehydration. Keep in mind that you also lose water during exercise even without heavy perspiration so remember to replenish!

  • Your body is made of the stuff

Your body is composed of around 60 to 70 per cent water, and these fluids are vital in many of the functions that keep you alive, namely your circulation, your digestion and your temperature regulation. When you're lacking in water, your body doesn't perform as well, which is why your brain triggers thirst. Keep your body healthy and functioning with plenty of water.
