10 Reasons to Drink Good Water

10th October, 2014 0
The body is 75% water

Did you know that your body is 75% water?  When we teach the kids our Water Ambassador lessons as part of our school program, we tell them this, and go on to tell them they aren't 75% juice, or 75% milk, only 75% water!  Maybe for adults, the equivalent is tea/coffee and wine/beer for the drinkers!  So it makes sense that the liquid we drink the most is water.  And water in our tea, coffee and fruit juice unfortunately doesn't count – only straight water!  So why is replacing this water so important?

We have summarised below 10 reasons why drinking good water daily is so important!

  1. Water is absolutely essential to the human body’s survival. A person can live for about a month without food, but only about a week without water.
  2. Water helps to maintain healthy body weight by increasing metabolism and regulating appetite.
  3. Water leads to increased energy levels. The most common cause of daytime fatigue is actually mild dehydration.
  4. Drinking adequate amounts of water can decrease the risk of certain types of cancers, including colon cancer, bladder cancer, and breast cancer.
  5. For a majority of sufferers, drinking water can significantly reduce joint and/or back pain.
  6. Water leads to overall greater health by flushing out wastes and bacteria that can cause disease.
  7. Water can prevent and alleviate headaches.
  8. Water naturally moisturises skin and ensures proper cellular formation underneath layers of skin to give it a healthy, glowing appearance.
  9. Water aids in the digestion process and helps prevent constipation.
  10. Water is the primary mode of transportation for all nutrients in the body and is essential for proper circulation.
