Drinking Eight Glasses Of Water Is Important To Keep You In Top Health

Water is important to the health of our bodies.  We have heard this all of our lives.  Yet, we still neglect to get our daily eight glasses of water that health professionals everywhere agree that we need.  Why do we need these eight glasses of water?

Water keeps our bodies moist and allows them to run with top efficiency.  When our bodies don’t get the needed amount of water then they can dehydrate which leads to a whole host of problems such as headaches, low blood pressure, urinary tract infections and even problems of greater severity if left untreated.

Water helps our food to digest and keeps our digestive system running smoothly.  It prevents constipation.

It is also good for our skin and helps to give us a clear complexion.

Water is a big factor in managing your weight.  When you drink the recommended amount of water each day then you will find that you are less hungry and experience less cravings for unhealthy foods which leads to a healthier weight.  Also, sometimes we mistake our thirst for hunger and end up eating when we really don’t need any more food and that can lead to unwanted pounds.  Try to drink a glass of water the next time you have the urge to head for the kitchen and see if that heads off your hunger.

Water is good for your kidneys and helps them to function properly so that they can flush out the impurities better.

It also gives you energy, especially when you are exercising.  It is not coincidence that you grow thirsty after a tough workout.  That is your body telling you to drink up to keep your muscles strong and steady.  Muscle fatigue can set in if you don’t have enough water in your body.

The benefits to drinking water are many and something we should all be concious of.
