Why you should Drink More Water

by | Feb 7, 2018 | Articles, Nutrition

The best way to regulate and control your appetite… DRINK MORE WATER!

Drinking a sufficient amount of water keeps your complexion clear and skin glowing, flushes toxins out of your body, aids in good digestion and healthy teeth, and regulates appetite. Also, drinking a full glass of water right before bed helps prevent bags under your eyes, as this swelling is caused by an abundance of salt in the body; water flushes it out of your system.

Water is vital for every cell in the body to function well:

  • Maintaining integrity of every cell in the body
  • Aiding in blood circulation carrying nutrients and oxygen to cells
  • Regulating body temperature
  • Helping to eliminate toxic by-products of the body’s metabolism
  • Moisturising the skin and giving it strength to protect from disease
  • Lubricating sinuses and mucous membranes including digestive system to prevent infection & disease
  • Cushioning & supporting joints including cartilage surfaces & ligaments
  • Assisting digestion helping convert food to energy
  • Helping the body absorb nutrients
  • Protecting organ function
  • Preventing bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites from growing in the body

How is your water intake today? Whichever way you drink it, your body and mind will LOVE you for it!
