We hear and read a lot these days about the importance of staying hydrated and getting our recommended ounces in each day, but why? Many people don’t concern themselves with tracking their water intake and they seem to be just fine, so what’s the big deal? Drinking enough water is a simple way to take care of your whole body from head to toe, inside and out.
If you find yourself with dry, itchy skin and can’t live without lotion and chap stick, you may be need to drink more water. Water keeps skin soft and lubricated and can also help prevent premature wrinkling. If you are longing for a better complexion and glowing skin, give drinking more water regularly a try.
Water also aids in digestion and helps to keep you “regular.” Drinking a glass of water before a meal can also help to prevent over eating and combat heartburn. Staying hydrated can also reduce your cravings for snacks and salty food. Often, your mind mistakes thirst for hunger leading you to grab a snack only to still be left feeling unsatisfied. Give a glass of water a try the next time you have a snack attack.
Do you suffer from aches, pains and frequent headaches? These all may be signs that you’re dehydrated. Water gives your joints and muscle the lubrication they need to stay flexible and prevent strains and sprains. It can also help to prevent headaches and migraines by regulating sodium and electrolyte levels in your body.
Staying hydrated has also shown to help your body fight infections like colds and flu and flush toxins out of the body and also help prevent kidney stones. If you do find yourself ill, staying hydrated is essential to allowing your body to fight the ailment and get you back on your feet, especially if you have a fever.
Often people say water is “boring” to drink or “flavorless, but there are many ways to still get your daily water intake without drinking plain water. Adding fruits, vegetables, and even herbs such as mint to your water can add a nice refreshing flavor and make for some fun experiments and combinations. There is also water in a lot of different foods, such as celery, apples and cucumbers that count towards your daily ounces. Juice and milk are also a source of water.
Remember when choosing a hydration source that all water is not the same. We recommend drinking and cooking with reverse osmosis purified water. This allows for contaminants to be reduced and removed from your water. Often people believe that bottled water is best, but unfortunately you may be investing in nothing better than tap water in a bottle.
