How Water is Beneficial for Your Health
Water makes up an estimated 60% of your body weight. It is a critical chemical component that your body depends on to survive.
The organs, tissues, and cells that form your body require water to function. If you do not consume sufficient water, you will become dehydrated, and this will impact your body’s ability to work properly. Even minor cases of dehydration can leave you feeling lethargic and lacking energy.
Why Drinking Water is Important
Water is essential for survival. It is needed to support nearly every single bodily function including sleep and digesting and metabolizing food. It also plays a role in regulating body temperature and allowing your muscles and organs to function properly.
Water consumption can even support a healthy weight. Not only is water calorie-free, but drinking plenty of water, especially before meals, can help you decrease your calorie intake leading to weight loss.
