Why Drink Water?
Body Every system in your body depends on hydration. And you lose up to three litres a day through sweating, breathing and using the bathroom. Here’s how important it is to drink plenty of pure clean, safe water, and its benefits for body and mind.
Here are 10 reasons to drink 8 glasses of water daily – for mental & physical wellbeing:
1. Everyday wellbeing
Water is essential to every system in you body, and your first line of defence against illness and infection.
2. Keep your cool
Sweat is your body's way of controlling your temperature – and you need plenty of water to sweat properly.
3. Bounce back after exercise
Drinking water before, during and after exercise reduces the risk and severity of injuries and speeds recovery time.
4. Stay focused and energised
Your brain needs water too! Even being a little dehydrated can make you feel tired, cranky, headachy or constipated.
5. Get well sooner
Drinking plenty of water helps you recover faster by lowering fever, reducing inflammation and helping you breathe easier.
6. Support heart health
Californian research showed that people who drink 5+ glasses of water a day are less likely to die from heart disease than those who drink less than 2 glasses a day.
7. Maintain a healthy weight
Is your hunger actually thirst? Try a glass of water instead of snacking, to fill you up spiking blood sugar levels. Water’s also vital for exercise.
8. A clean flush
Water supports your kidneys, liver and bowel to process and flush waste and toxins from your body.
9. Get glowing skin
Drinking water hydrates skin from the inside out, keeping it supple plump and youthful and reducing dryness.
