Did you know that humans are made up of around 60% water? So one of the most important things we can do to keep healthy is actually seemingly easy – drink plenty of H2O! Here are some benefits that come with drinking water…
1. Flush out the nasties
Drinking water flushes away toxins such as excess sugar and salt from our bodies as well as other electrolytes – one of the best ways to get in better health.
2. A natural glow up!
Drinking lots of water naturally helps to improve your complexion – the more hydrated you stay, the fewer wrinkles and fine lines you’ll see, plus it helps to balance your pH level to give you healthy, glowing skin.
3. Increase your energy
Hydration is so important when it comes to your body and mind! Everyday activities can cause water loss, so carrying a water bottle everywhere you go and starting your day a big glass of the good stuff will help you perform well throughout the day.
How much water should you be drinking every day?
The amount of water you should drink every day depends on a number of factors including weight, activity level, the weather, and how much you sweat. Plus, other fluids and foods can also count towards your goal! But in general, it is recommended we drink around 6 to 8 glasses per day.
