6 Reasons You Should Drink Water

Please share

 

The human body comprises around 60% water.

It’s commonly recommended that you drink eight 8-ounce (237-mL) glasses of water per day (the 8×8 rule).

Although there’s little science behind this specific rule, staying hydrated is important.

Here are 6 evidence-based health benefits of drinking plenty of water.

1. It keeps your skin healthy

These days, the skincare industry has exploded but we tend to ignore a vital part of skincare, which is water. Your skin needs water to retain a certain texture and when you become dehydrated, your skin can wrinkle and become prone to skin issues.

2. Can Flush Your Body

When removing waste from your body, your kidneys and digestive system need water in order to do so properly

3. Helps Your Kidneys

The kidneys are in charge of fluid regulation in the body. Inadequate water consumption can result in kidney stones and other complications.

4. Can Help You Lose Weight

Water can also help you lose weight if you drink it instead of sweetened juices and sodas. Sometimes, taking water just before meals can help prevent overeating, as it creates a sense of you being full.

5. Can Help Your Bowel Movement

Your rectum absorbs a lot of water from your faeces, if you don’t take enough water, it might become too difficult to pass stool. This might lead to tears and the straining might lead to haemorrhoids

6. It Can Help With Hangovers

Alcohol is a diuretic, which means it causes a person to pass more urine. Dehydration and electrolyte imbalances can occur as a result of fluid loss. These elements all contribute to a hangover.
