Water. What’s so great about it? Why is everyone always going on and on about how great water is for you and how you should always be drinking it instead of those sugary drinks that are out on the shelves? Why should we be drinking so much of it? Well it’s pretty simple really, your body needs water to survive and nutritionally it’s just good for you.
Now if you’re like me that reasoning, although legitimate, isn’t good enough to sell me on giving up my iced tea. So, let’s break it down even further as to why water is great for your body.
- Regulates the temperate of your body
- Improves skin complexion by moisturizing it, keeping it fresh, soft, glowing, smooth, and looking younger; essentially being a natural anti-aging remedy
- Aids in weight loss by removing the by-products of fats, acts as a hunger suppressant, and increases your metabolism
- Builds and tones muscles (in accordance with exercising) by carrying oxygen throughout your body at a faster speed and then allowing for your muscles to work longer and harder
- Boosts immune system by flushing out harmful toxins, viruses, and bacteria
- Helps fight migraines and headaches by keeping your brain hydrated
- Helps fight against bad breath by flushing away food particles before they get stuck to and in between teeth
- SO cheap! Even if you are having to buy bottles of water, you are going to save money compared to buying the sugary drink next to it
Are you sold yet?? I know I was in at helping to losing weight and fighting bad breath!
Now that you’re sold, let’s talk numbers. As a general recommendation, you should drink at least 64 ounces of water a day. I know that sounds like a lot, but if you break it up into at least eight, 8oz. glasses throughout the day then it’s not that bad.
