What Do You, the Trees, and a Hamster Have in Common?
You all need water. All living things must have water to survive, whether they get it from a water fountain, a rain cloud, or a little bottle attached to the side of a hamster cage.
June 23, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Without water, your body would stop working properly. Water makes up more than half of your body weight and a person can't survive for more than a few days without it.
So why is drinking water so important and beneficial? Listed below are nine reasons (out of the hundreds and thousands) of why drinking water is indeed vital to you and your health.
Weight loss - Water has no fat, no calories, no carbs and no suger. Water often replaces high-calorie drinks like soda and juice with a drink that doesn't have any calories. But it's also a great appetite suppressant, and often when we think we're hungry, we're actually just thirsty.
Heart healthy - studies have shown that those who drink more than 5 glasses of water a day were 41% less likely to die from a heart attack compared to those who drank less than two glasses.
Energy - being dehydrated can sap your energy and make you feel tired
Headache cure - Another symptom of dehydration is headaches. In fact, often when we have headaches it's simply a matter of not drinking enough water.
Healthy skin - Drinking water can clear up your skin and people often report a healthy glow after drinking water.
Digestive problems - Often water can help cure stomach acid problems, and water along with fiber can cure constipation (often a result of dehydration).
Cleansing - Water is used by the body to help flush out toxins and waste products from the body.
Cancer risk - drinking a healthy amount of water has also been found to reduce the risk of colon cancer by 45%. Drinking lots of water can also reduce the risk of bladder cancer by 50% and potentially reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Better exercise - Exercise requires additional water, so be sure to hydrate before, during and after exercise
