INFO ABOUT WATER IN THE BODY
Added on: 4th Oct 2016
CONSISTENT LACK OF HYDRATION CAUSES SICKNESS
Chronic Cellular Dehydration occurs when one consistently
meets less than their required water intake. When cells
throughout the body are continuously under hydrated they
are more vulnerable to disease and chemical imbalances.
WATER COMBATS CANCER
Consuming at least five glasses of water per day has been
found to reduce colon cancer by 45%, bladder cancer
by 50%, and breast cancer by 79%.
WATER KEEPS OUR BRAINS HEALTHY
Since 70% of our brains are made of water, drinking water
is essential for brain health. Drinking water can even
help relieve headaches.
WATER SPEEDS UP WEIGHT LOSS
German researchers have found that drinking water helps
speed up our metabolism. Besides helping us burn
more calories, drinking water also makes us feel more
full, leading us to take less on our plates come meal time.
REGULATES WASTE DISPOSAL
Our bodies remove toxins in three primary ways: urination,
defecation, and perspiration. Water is clearly important
while we sweat, but it also helps reduce constipation and
eliminates toxins more rapidly from the body so
they don’t cause harm.
CERTAIN DRINKS REQUIRE MORE WATER THAN
THEY BRING TO BE PROCESSED
When we drink alcohol or soft drinks, our bodies have to
use more water than is in the drinks to break them down.
Even if we drink eight cans of soda a day, we’ll likely be
making ourselves dehydrated. Make sure to
supplement any drinks with water.
WATER HELPS US FEEL MORE ENERGETIC
When the body is properly hydrated, oxygen levels in our
blood increase. Increased oxygen levels mean both more
efficient fat burning and higher energy levels.
OUR DIET AFFECTS HOW MUCH WATER WE NEED
When consuming a high protein or high fibre diet, our
bodies need even more water to break down or process
these tougher substances.
