Hydration is very important for nutrition and exercise. The more water you drink the more toxins you flush out. Some of the benefits of drinking water are increased energy, relieves fatigue, increases focus, promotes weight loss, and flushes out toxins. Water can also help to improve your skin complexion and regulate body temperature. Better digestion and healthier skin and joints are also benefits.
Water makes up about 60% of the human body. Without water, you will become dehydrated. Dehydration occurs when you lose more bodily fluids than you take in. This can happen in different ways such as diarrhea, vomiting, or sweating. When you become dehydrated it can cause unclear thinking, mood changes, increased body temperature, and constipation. Warning signs of dehydration include weakness, low blood pressure, dizziness, confusion, or urine that is dark in color.
So how much water should you drink per day? There are many different opinions on just how much you should be drinking. Health experts commonly recommend eight, eight-ounce glasses, which equals two liters or half a gallon every day. However, your body might need more water than someone else. How much you need also depends on where you live, your diet, temperature or season, how active you are, your health, or if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
If you don’t drink plenty of water now, you should start drinking more water to lose weight, stay focused, promote healthier skin and hair, as well as increase your overall health.
