Drinking enough watever every day is a key in maintaining good health. Your body is made up of mostly water, it only makes sense to keep replenishing it instead of filling up on other forms of liquid such as soda or fruit juices which contain a lot of sugar.
Here are some facts about H20 and your body:
Blood is 83% water
Muscles are 75% water
The brain is 74% water
Bone is 22% water
With just 8 glasses of water per day, you can improve your energy, increase mental and physical performance, reduce headaches, remove toxins from your body, lose weight, and provides proper digestion just to name a few. It is recommended that men drink 13 glasses of water and women nine glasses. It has been said in the past to drink eight ounces of water eight times a day but no one really does.
Most people mistake thirst for hunger. Next time you feel that you're hungry, drink a few glasses of water, wait 20 minutes and see if you are still hungry. This is a great way to lose weight as well.
If you don't like the taste of water, adding lemon wedge can bring a hint of sweetness to the falvor.
