Fitness For Women #07_ The Benefits Of Water

Water.  90% of our brain is made up of it.  Our cells need it and our blood needs it.  Water is essential to maintain life.  So why are 80% of people dehydrated?  In episode #07 of my blog series on Fitness For Women, I went live on Facebook to talk about the many benefits that water gives us.  You can watch the live video here:

1. Increases Energy & Relieves Fatigue

Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!

2. Promotes Weight Loss

Water is amazing for weight loss because it removes by-products of fat and reduces eating intake by filling you up if consumed prior to meals.  It also reduces hunger (hello natural appetite suppressant!) and raises your metabolism.  Drink a lot because it has zero calories!

3. Flushes Out Toxins

Water also gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections).  This is a relieve for all women who have ever experienced the discomfort of a UTI right?

4. Improves Skin Complexion

Water is great because it moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. It also gets rid of wrinkles. It’s the best anti-aging treatment around!

5. Maintains Regularity

Aids in digestion as water is essential to digest your food and prevents constipation.

 

6. Boosts Immune System

A water guzzler is less likely to get sick and who wouldn’t rather feel healthy the majority of the time? Drinking plenty of water helps fight flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks.

 

7. Natural Headache Remedy

Helps relieve and prevent headaches (migraines & back pains too!) which are commonly caused by dehydration.

 

8. Prevents Cramps & Sprains

Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely.

9.  Save Money!

Water is FREE! Even if you choose bottled/filtered water, it’s STILL cheaper than that high sugar and fat-filled latte!  See my recent post on the truth about the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino.
