The benefits of staying hydrated are endless. It's hot as hell outside and I wouldn't be in these Atlanta streets without my H20. Water is essential to our lives and we need it for our bodies to function properly. Here are five benefits of staying hydrated:
1. Flushes out toxins.
We're exposed to toxins every single day. The junk food we eat, polluted air, cleaning products, beauty products, contaminated water to name a few. Our bodies flushes out waste through urination so drinking plenty of water flushes the kidneys.
2. Aids in weight loss.
Water increases your metabolism and has zero calories! On many occasions we think we're heavier because of fat but many times we're just bloated. Water can decrease bloating. Drink up! Eat up! Many fruits and vegetables contains a lot of water like watermelon, cucumbers, green peppers, broccoli, and spinach.
3. Immune Booster.
Water with lemon slices is a natural immune booster. Your body will naturally fight against the common cold, flu like symptoms.
4. Glowing Skin.
Have you heard the quote, "My skin glows because I drink water and stay in my lane." Lol! It's true. Avid water drinkers have nice, clear glowing skin. Add some lemons and cucumbers and your skin will be flawless and decrease processed foods.
People who consume water regularly don't have issues with being constipated. Constipation is related to dehydration of the colon. When your body is properly hydrated, less water will be withdrawn from the colon.
