Benefits of consuming water

  1. Helps in weight loss: Sometimes even after having a meal you are urged to munch on something. Actually it’s not hunger, it’s craving. A very effective strategy to curb this craving is to go for a glass of water. Or you can have black coffee, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, green tea as these beverages have zero calories and are 99% water. Water acts as an appetite suppressant. In the long run optimal water intake resulted in significant weight loss. Increased water intake results in increased metabolic rate. Drinking enough water reduces water retention, as it occurs due to less water intake. When the body is dehydrated it retains more water to prevent it. So if you drink enough water there is no reason for the body to retain water. This reduces the “puffy” look and makes you look toned.
  2. Helps in brain function: Optimal water intake helps with maintaining memory function, improving concentration and cognition. Mild dehydration, which is 1-3% bodyweight loss of water, can alter brain function. Cognitive functions such as concentration, alertness, and short term memory are affected negatively during mild dehydration.
  3. Good for skin: Water keeps your skin hydrated, refreshed and helps in maintaining it’s elasticity. Drinking the optimal amount of water reduces wrinkles. If you are not hydrated the skin under your eyes can become dark and lost elasticity.
  4. Helps in regulating body temperature:  Water can absorb and transfer heat well, that’s why body water plays a vital role as a thermoregulatory. Body water regulates body temperature by helping banish heat. If your body is too hot, water is lost through sweat and evaporation of sweat from the skin surface reduces heat from the body. Water in every cell of the human body act as a buffer against sudden temperature changes.
  5. Improves blood oxygen circulation
  6. Moistens tissues in the eyes, nose and mouth
  7. Helps in removing toxins  from the body. Water lessens the burden on the kidney and liver by flushing out waste from the body.
  8. Helps in dissolving nutrients to make them accessible to your body. 
  9. Water lubricates joints. 
  10. Protects body tissues and organs.

Due to our current lifestyle, when people don’t have time to pay enough attention to themselves, we tend to forget to drink enough water to keep ourselves hydrated.

Here I am suggestion few ideas to help you coping-up with dehydration issue

  1. Make a habit to always carry a water bottle,whenever you are going out. This gives you the convenience of drinking water anytime & anywhere.
  2. Set your aim to drinking enough water as per individual need. Recommendation is to have 8-10 glass water per day
  3. Set a reminder in your phone or health band to drink water. If you are too busy and tend to forget things, technology can help to copup.

It is also noticed that many people are not able to drink enough water as they don’t appreciate the taste of it. One of the solutions is to add slices of your favorite fruits, this also makes it detox water which even further helps to remove impurities from the body.
