Today I would like to talk a bit about very simple substance which is consumed by us every single day that is water.
Water makes up 60-80% of human’s body therefore we are basically 2/3 or even 3/4 consist of water. Water is a fuel to keep everything functioning as it should be. In fact, most of things in our body are made up from water. Bones consist of 22% of water, muscle 75%, blood 83% and our brains 90%!!
Water is a good source to deal with many problems. It helps to flush out toxins from our bodies making it unnecessary for our hearts to eliminate them. Water helps to decrease fatigue and tiredness. It also helps to increase metabolism and is a good substitute for sugary sodas full of calories. Among other benefits are its ability to increase awareness, memory and concentration, energize muscles and lubricates bones, joints and tendors which is useful for workouts and additionally it is a great anti-aging elixir which helps to cleanse and moisturize our organs and smooths wrinkles, acne and other imperfections on our skin.
It should be mentioned that when one feels thirsty he/she is already dehydrated. It is always advised to drink enough water to keep body hydrated throughout the whole day. In fact, there is no clear answer to the question of how much one should drink water per day. The general guide is 13 cups for men and 9 for women.
Overall, water drinking is a way to clean and moisturize our bodies including all internal organs keeping skin moisturized. Therefore why not to take a few shots of simple and pure water instead of soda?
