Six Reasons to Drink Up

  1. How much?  Start with 1/2 your body weight in ounces.

  2. Water is a natural appetite suppressant. 

  1. Research shows that drinking a glass of water before meals curbs appetite, helping you eat less and become more satisfied.

  2. Water speeds up metabolism. Research has shown that an increase in water consumption leads to an increase in the rate in which people burn calories as opposed to storing them as fat.
    Water cleanses the body of toxins. Water improves your blood circulation flushing out toxins and impurities. It also increases water in your skin cells which helps to get rid of wrinkles and helps you look younger.

  3. Water boosts your energy. Dehydration leads to fatigue because it impacts the flow of oxygen to the brain and causes your heart to work harder to pump oxygen to all your bodily organs, making you more tired and less alert. By staying hydrated you stay energized.

  4. Water helps build muscle tone. Water acts a lubricant around your muscle and joints which helps prevent against cramping, allowing you to work out harder and longer.
    Water reduces stress. Studies have shown that dehydration leads to higher cortisol levels—the stress hormone—making it harder to deal with everyday issues. By staying hydrated you will be better equipped to deal everyday problems.
