Did you know that most people are chronically dehydrated? There are so many reasons to stay hydrated, here are just some of them:
🔹 Lessens hunger
Most hunger is actually a call for hydration. Next time you feel hungry, drink a full glass of water and see how you feel.
🔹 Removes toxins
Water takes toxins from various parts of the body and escorts them out. It also allows for more efficient cellular repair.
🔹 Healthy joints
Water encourages cartilage lubrication, which reduces friction and inflammation around the joints.
🔹 Anti-Aging in a glass!
Want to have glowing skin and look younger? Water helps smooth the skin and gives it a more dewy appearance. Do you have dry or bumpy skin? Dryness is usually from dehydration and bumps are usually toxins trapped in the skin with no way to exit (bumpy skin can also be improved by taking vitamin E and D3 supplements).
🔹 How much water do you need?
Experts give us this calculation: Take your current body weight, divide by 2, and that’s how many ounces per day of water we need to stay hydrated. You’ll find lots of differing opinions, but the bottom line is you need to pay attention to the signs.
These are the main signs of dehydration:
- Dry lips
- Dark urine
- Frequent headaches
- Dry and/or bumpy skin
