Let’s be honest we all know we need to drink as much water as we can. However, just in case you need that extra nudge or that little bit more convincing, here are our 10 reasons you need to drink more water.
Here we go!
1. Can give you a much needed energy boost
We all need a bit of an energy boost from time to time, right?
Well let’s wave goodbye to the coffee and bring on the water. One of the most common symptoms of dehydration (lack of water) is tiredness. In fact dehydration can lead to weakness, fatigue, dizziness, and electrolyte imbalance. This must mean it’s time to get out your Hydratem8 and have a few gulps.
2. It improves your skin
Getting the right amount of water each day can seriously help improve the colour and texture of your skin.
Getting the precious H20 down you will moisturise your skin helping keep it soft, fresh and glowing. Plus, it can even help get rid of those naughty wrinkles. Happy days!
3. Will help you shed some pounds
Forget that latest fad diet – drinking water can help you with weight loss.
The truth is that sometimes we think we are hungry, when we are actually just thirsty. Our body is telling us but we ignore it and nip down the road to our favoyrite fast food restaurant. Bad idea!
If you are trying to shed a few pounds, staying hydrated will keep hunger at bay and help you with your weight loss.
4. Boosts your immune system
Water can help the body bounce back quicker when we are not feeling our best. Of course it is not a replacement for taking prescribed medicine but it can certainly help. There has also been various research stating that when we keep hydrated we can reduce the risk of cancer. That shows just how important drinking water each day really is.
According to the NHS, good hydration can help prevent, treat or manage the following:
- skin conditions
- urinary infections
- heart disease
- kidney stones
- low blood pressure
- cognitive impairment
5. It’s a natural headache remedy
If you struggle with headaches then drinking more water can really help, especially if you are unlucky enough to suffer with migraines. In one study, scientists recruited migraine sufferers and divided them into two groups: one took a placebo, the others were told to drink 1.5 litres of water in addition to their usual daily intake. At the end of research, the second group experienced 21 fewer hours of pain than those in the first group.
6. Can lift your mood
Feeling a little grumpy? Time to drink more water!
If you want to think clearer and improve your moods water could be the solution.
If your body’s water balance is not as it should be because you haven’t called on your Hydratem8 enough, then you may get tired and we all know that this is the first sign that a bad mood is on its way.
7. Gives your body what it needs
Water is essential for your body. There’s a reason why we call water the source of life — our blood is 90% water.
Water serves as the body’s transportation system and when we are dehydrated things just don’t move around as they should.
8. Helps with pain prevention
A little water can go a long way when it comes to aching joints, muscle cramps and strains. These can all occur if the body is dehydrated.
If you drink more water you can actually help reduce any pains you may have in your joints.
9. Lifts productivity
Need to focus? Water will help you concentrate and remain refreshed and alert.
A study in London found a link between students bringing water into their exam room and getting better grades. This has to suggest water promotes clearer thinking. While it’s unclear if drinking the water had anything to do with a better results, what’s the harm in trying!?! We can’t be sure water is going to make you brainer but who knows?
What we do know is your brain needs a lot of oxygen to function at its highest levels, so drinking plenty of water ensures that it’s getting what it needs.
10. Means you get to use your HydrateM8 more often
Best of all the more water you drink the more you use your Hydratem8. That has to be a bonus!
