H2O, how beneficial is it?
So how much water should you drink a day?
We have all been told over the years to get our 8 glasses of water in everyday, which is a great start, but more will do your body good.
Since I started by health transformation and maintain a very active lifestyle, I try to double that. Yes, I said it.......I drink at minimum a gallon of water per day.
Sounds pretty crazy but here are some great things that water can do for you and your body.
#1 Drinking H2O will help you shed the pounds. Replacing sugary drinks with water will help cut our those empty calories, helping reduce your waist line, and keeping up on your water intake will help speed up your metabolism.
#2 Want more energy? Drink more water! Our bodies are 55-60% water. Drinking those glasses will help your body function properly and flush out all the toxins. Raise your hand if you want more energy.....
#3 We all hate wrinkles and we tend to see more of them as we get older. Staying hydrated will keep your skin hydrated, plumping up skin cells, and you get that glow that everyone is after. Forget that bronzer ladies, you just need more water.
#4 Have you ever gotten a Charlie Horse or cramp up during your workouts. Try drinking more water. Staying hydrated is crucial for your muscles. Without enough fluid your muscles will fatigue and possibly cramp up.
#5 Are your regular? Maybe feeling bloated? Constipated? Yes, I said it. Remember....everybody poops! Water plays a big part in your digestive track and helps keep things moving through.
There’s probably more benefits to drinking water, but these were the main points that I could think of. Just remember the more active you are and the warmer the weather is it’s always an a good idea to drink more ounces.
If you think you having any medical conditions or just ave questions about your general health reach out to your doctor.
