Cheers to Hydration in 2017!
When was the last time you had a tumbler full of refreshing water?
If you’re thinking for more than a second or two trying to recall, go treat yourself to one right now.
Working out? Drink some water.
On the beach? Drink some water.
At your desk? Driving? Watching TV? Walking? Running? Spelunking? Trekking up a hill? You know the drill.
Fill up some water bottles and take them with you.
It’s important to stay hydrated . How important? Well, let’s consider these facts:
Water makes up about 70% of a human’s body weight.
Brain tissue is about 80% water.
Drinking water can increase your metabolism which helps burn calories.
Drinking water helps flush toxins out of your body which can aid in reducing the risk for heart disease and cancer.
Water helps in the production of saliva which helps keep your mouth clean which in turn helps prevent tooth decay and cavities.
Keeping the body hydrated lessens the friction in your joints helping prevent arthritis.
Water helps your kidneys maintain peak functionality.
Good-looking skin owes more to proper hydration than expensive creams and lotions.
As you can see, water is an important part of your health. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to enjoy a tall, cold tumbler of delicious, zero-calorie water. In fact, you should be drinking between 68 – 100 oz of water each day -even more if you’re exercising, performing manual labor or taking a hike through the woods.
