Drinking water is the simplest way to improve your health
Are you one of the 75% of Americans who walk around chronically dehydrated? Chronic dehydration is dangerous because your body may become used to functioning with insufficient H2O- that is, you may not be picking up on the classic signs of dehydration. Here's what to look out for:
- Dry, sticky mouth
- Fatigue or mood swings
- Dry eyes and blurred vision
- No need to pee and dark urine
Perhaps you can't remember your last drink of water, and if this is the case your body is certainly suffering. So stop delaying, and grab a cup of water today!
Managing your health is rarely as easy as drinking a cup of water
But in this case, it's not too good to be true. Here is a brainstorm of the health benefits to be derived from getting your daily recommended amount of water:
- Lubricates joints and prevents discomfort associated with back pain
- Protects tissues throughout the body including those surrounding the spine
- Provides for efficient cellular repair
- Helps to cleanse and remove toxins and waste from the cells
- Increases muscular function by allowing red blood cells to carry oxygen more efficiently.
Most health professionals agree that you should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day or, more individually, 1 ounce of water for every pound of body weight, and more if you are exercising.
