Why Is Water Important?

Water has so many amazing properties. Aside from the fact that we can't live without water, why else is this element so important to us as human beings? Water helps us with weight loss. It can increase our metabolism as well as make us feel full so we don't eat as much during a meal. Water can increase your energy. So many of the benefits we receive from water has to do with staying hydrated. If sufficiently hydrated, you are less likely to feel run-down or depleted, your heart will not have to work as hard to pump your blood to the rest of your body, you can prevent muscle cramping, and you have the ability to exercise longer and harder.

Water also hydrates skin cells, making your skin look and feel younger. Water also helps dissolve waste particles. The more hydrated your colon, the more easily you are able to pass waste. Water dilutes sale and minerals in your urine and can help prevent kidney stones.

Remember the rule of thumb-drink eight 8oz glasses of water a day (or half your body weight). If you exercise, drink more. the more hydrated your body, the more effectively your body can function.
