More than the aerated drinks and the energy sports drinks, water still holds the power to refuel the power levels and without it, we would have been extinct (just like the dinosaurs).
During and after a jog, gym or at the workplace – water is necessary just everywhere we go.
So what makes water so important?
Here’s why – when your water intake does not come equivalent to your output, you can become dehydrated. Fluid losses increase in warmer climates, during exhausting exercise, in high altitudes and elderly ones, whose sense of thirst may not be as sharp.
Thus keeping that in mind, below are the reasons why one should drink water:
Maintains the stability of body fluids
Our body is composed of about 60% water and the function of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature. Thus, when our body is low on fluids, the brain sends out thirst mechanism and unless you are taking medications to quench the thirst; one should listen to those signals and get yourself a drink of water, juice, and milk anything besides alcohol.
Helps contain the calories
Scientists have pressed on the issues that drinking a lot of water can help in fat loss but it does not have any immediate effect unless, the introduction of high calorie beverages do the otherwise. Foods with high water content are larger and due to that requires more chewing, and it is absorbed more slowly by the body, which in turn fills up the tummy. That’s the reason why, one should opt for water-rich foods that include fruits, vegetables, broth-based soups, oatmeal, and beans.
Gives energy to the muscles
Some cells that maintain the balance of fluids and electrolytes get smaller and in turn result to muscle fatigue. Therefore it is necessary to replenish your body with fluids especially water so that there is a proper balance of fluids and electrolytes to the muscles. When in between an exercise, one must start drinking fluids before and at regular intervals to restore fluids lost by sweating.
Drink water and welcome a good skin
Our skin contains plenty of water and functions as a defensive wall to prevent excess loss of fluids. But there’s a chance of breaking up those walls during dehydration or less water consumption. Therefore, it is compulsory to fill our body with water thus refilling the kidneys which results in excretion of excess fluids.
A must for your kidneys
Our body fluids move waste products in and out of cells and the focal toxin in the body is blood urea nitrogen which is a water-soluble waste that is capable to pass through the kidneys to be excreted in the urine.
That’s the reason when you are getting enough fluids, urine flows freely, is light in color and free of odour. But in stark contrast, the urine concentration, colour and odour increases because the kidneys lock in extra fluid for bodily functions. Thus, in times of less water consumption, one is allowing kidney stones to form in the body. Therefore, one must drink a lot of water to keep the stones at bay.
