We need water in our life. Period. Humans can live longer without food however we can only live for a few days without the sacred liquid.
Here are seven important reasons for you to drink more water:
1. Prevent cancer
Various research says staying hydrated can reduce risk of colon cancer by 45 per cent, bladder cancer by 50 per cent and possibly reduce breast cancer risk as well.
2. Be less cranky
Dehydration can affect your mood and make you grumpy and confused. Think clearer and be happier by drinking more water.
3. Lose weight
Sometimes we think we are hungry, when actually we are thirsty. If you are trying to drop the kilogrammes, staying hydrated can serve as an appetite suppressant and help with weight loss.
4. Have less joint pain
Drinking water can reduce pain in your joints by keeping the cartilage soft and hydrated. This is actually how glucosamine helps reduce joint pain, by aiding in cartilage’s absorption of water.
5. Flush out waste and bacteria
Our digestive system needs water to function properly. Waste is flushed out in the form of urine and sweat. If we don't drink water, we don't flush out waste and it collects in our body causing a myriad of problems.
6. Prevent headaches
Sometimes headaches can be caused by dehydration, so drinking water can prevent or alleviate that nasty head pain. Next time your head hurts, try drinking water.
7. Make your skin glow
Regular and plentiful water consumption can improve the colour and texture of your skin by keeping it building new cells properly. Drinking water also helps the skin do its job of regulating the body's temperature through sweating.
