A Few Good Reasons To Drink More Water:

Fluid balance
Roughly 65-70%  of the body is made of water.  Drinking enough H2o maintains the body’s fluid balance, which helps transport nutrients in the body, regulate body temperature, digest food, detoxify and much more!

Brain boost
Our brains depend on proper hydration to function optimally.  Brain cells require a delicate balance between water and various elements to operate, and when you lose too much water, that balance is disrupted and your brain cells lose efficiency.  Studies have shown that staying well-hydrated can help your brain function 14% faster, so treat yourself to a brain boost!

Calorie control
Forget other diet tricks—drinking water could also help with weight loss.  Numerous studies have found a connection between water consumption and losing weight.  The secret reason?  Water simply helps you feel full, helps regulate digestion and as a result consume fewer calories and detoxify.

Muscle fuel
Sweating at the gym is great, because this is one of the ways our body detoxifies, but it causes muscles to lose water, and when muscles don’t have enough water, they get tired.  So for extra energy, try drinking water to push through that final set of squats!  Your dream body craves more water!

Helps to Decrease development & appearance of wrinkles
Wrinkles occur when our skin dries out. When skin becomes dry, skin cell metabolism begins to slow down and cells die.  Skin cells need moisture to function properly in order to replace elastin & collagen.  Elastin & collagen are what makes your skin flexible, strong and youthful-looking!  Plump up your skin with more water!

Clearer more beautiful looking skin
Certain toxins in the body can cause the skin to inflame, which results in clogged pores and acne.  Water helps to flush out these toxins and can reduce the outbreak of pimples & acne.  Water also keeps skin hydrated and looking young!

Kidney function
Our kidneys process 200 quarts of blood daily, sifting out waste and transporting urine to the bladder, so kidneys need enough fluids to clear away what we don’t need in the body.  Time to increase detox!  Let’s drink to that!

Productivity boost
Drinking a glass of water can almost immediately make you feel more alert, energized and ready to push through your day!  Drink your way to a productive day!

Fatigue buster
Water can help fight fatigue & those tired eyes too!  One of the most common symptoms of dehydration is tiredness, so when you are feeling sluggish, chug down a big gulp of water for a quick pick-me-upper!

Pain prevention
A little water can really go a long way.  Aching joints, muscle cramps and strains can all occur if the body is dehydrated.  Keep that bounce in your step by staying hydrated!

Digestion
Digestion issues can wreak havoc on your body & mood.  Luckily, drinking enough water adds much needed water to the colon, which helps keep things flowing & regular!  Being more regular rids our body of toxins, resulting in feeling better, slimmer physique and having better skin!

Sickness fighter
Water may help with congestion and dehydration, helping the body bounce back when feeling under the weather.  Just beware—drinking fluids hasn’t been scientifically proven to beat colds in one fell swoop, so don’t swap this for a trip to the doctor or other cold remedies, but do remember to stay hydrated!
