Healthy Living

We all know that drinking water is good for us, but did you know that every system in your body depends on it?  Here’s how:

1. Staying healthy

Water keeps your whole body working efficiently and helps prevent illness and infection.

2. Staying cool

Sweat is your body's way of controlling your temperature. To sweat properly you need plenty of water on board!

3. Assists recovery from exercise

Drinking water before, during and after exercise helps replace the fluid you lose through sweating, reduces the risk and severity of injuries and speeds recovery time.

4. Boosts energy, increases alertness

Even if you’re a little dehydrated, you could feel tired, irritable and be more likely to become constipated or get a headache. You lose at least 5 to 10 cups of fluid a day through sweating, breathing and urinating. The answer is easy – drink more water!

5. Assists recovery from illness

It's true that you should drink plenty of fluids when you're sick. Water helps control a fever, reduces inflammation and aids respiration. Being adequately hydrated greatly improves recovery time.

6. Reduces risk of heart attack

Researchers in California have shown that those who drink more than five glasses of water a day are less likely to die from a heart attack or heart disease than those who drink less than two glasses a day.

7. Helps control weight

Water aids digestion and helps give you the energy you need for exercise. Sometimes, if you think you're hungry, a glass of water can replace a snack, giving you that full feeling without playing havoc with your blood sugar levels.

8. Flushes toxins from your system

Water helps flush toxins from your body, assisting the functioning of your kidneys, liver and bowel.

9. Healthier skin

Drinking water moisturizes your skin from the inside out, keeping it supple and reducing dryness.

10. Healthier teeth

Drinking water is better for your teeth and mouth than sugary drinks. This means less expensive dental visits and brighter smiles!
