Yes, I know, you’ve heard this a thousand times: stay hydrated. And you might even have one of those fancy, tank size water bottles encouraging you to chug H20 like a cheerleader hyping up your water game. Despite marketing efforts to support this, most people don’t really know why we should be drinking more water.
Did you know up to 60% of the human adult body is made of water? When you’re dehydrated, it’s like not having enough oil in your car – things aren’t going to function properly and potentially cause harm. So, here’s a quick breakdown of water consumption benefits to keep you running like a well-oiled (or should I say watered) machine:
- Transports nutrients and oxygen to your cells
- Expels bacteria from your bladder
- Helps digestion and prevents constipation
- Maintains blood pressure
- Stabilizes heartbeat
- Lubricates your joints
- Protects organs and tissues
- Regulates body temperature
- Keeps you focused
Now go grab your water and get your drink on – your mind and body will thank you! Happy Wellness Wednesday ya’ll!
