Why you Should be Drinking More Water
Studies have shown that 75% of Americans are dehydrated – and our bodies are on average 60% water! Something doesn’t add up. To take care of our bodies at a high level, we need to take care of our water intake. Here are some of the top reasons why you should drink more water.
Boosts Physical Performance
Drinking more water has been linked to improvements in physical performance. More hydration for your muscles means better recovery and more growth. By drinking more water, you are less prone to injury and have greater overall muscle & joint health.
Energy & Brain Function
We all have experienced energy dips or brain fog throughout the day. Often times, that is due to dehydration. Drinking more water has been shown to boost cognition, improve mental focus and give you the energy you need to power through your day.
Having more water recreates the sensation of feeling full which will limit the amount of calories you consume throughout the day. Get into the habit of having a full glass of water first thing in the morning. This is a great way to start your day and prime your body for weight loss.
Improves Skin Complexion
Drinking water helps your body flush its system of toxins. This cleansing keeps your skin clear, while reducing your chance of developing acne. If you want to have clear, soft, oil-free skin, make it a point to start drinking more water.
The recommended water intake is half your bodyweight in ounces a day. An easy start is to drink a glass of water first thing in the morning, with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and before going to bed. This is going to prime your body to have energy, lose weight, and feel great!
