Water is not just a thirst quencher!
27 June, 2013

Water is fundamental to life, including the human body. In fact, the average adult is about 70% water, and so is our planet. Drinking water helps maintain the balance of body fluids. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature.


Drinking plenty of water is great for your skin. If you don’t drink enough water, you’ll suffer from dry skin, and you’ll be likely to use more
creams and lotions to moisturize.
However, creams and lotions don’t strike at the root of the problem. Drinking plenty of water keeps your skin moisturized and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Water suppresses your appetite, so you don’t eat as much. Drinking plenty of water also prevents fluid retention because your body won’t try to retain water if it is getting enough.
Drinking water also helps your body burn stored fat. If you’re not drinking enough water, your liver will be forced to help your kidneys detoxify your body. When you drink plenty of water, your kidneys don’t need any extra help, so your liver will be relieved.
Drinking water can increase your cognitive function. Your brain needs a lot of oxygen in order to function at optimum levels.
Drinking water ensures that your eyes and mouth will remain as moist as they need to be. Drinking water allows your eyes and mouth to repel dirt, dust and parasites that might cause infection.
Water is life-giving and we have to know how to use it, and we the modern people are more than fortunate to have so many instructions scattered in the Internet about our water consumption norms and ways. Personally, I am using every little tip I can get my hands on, which concerns the usage of water. Why don’t you want to be the same way? I promise I shall give you only a useful piece of advice.
