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!
