Questions and Answers Regarding Water Intake:

Why is it important to drink water?

Water helps rid the body of toxins, but it also keeps every cell in the body hydrated. For optimal health, your blood needs to be well hydrated too. Dehydrated blood becomes thicker, which forces the heart to work harder.

What are the benefits of drinking water?

Our bodies are composed of close to 70% water. Water serves many healthy purposes in the body. Drinking water can help:

  • To hydrate the body’s cells and tissues
  • Flush out wastes and toxins
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Control appetite
  • Lose weight
  • Increase energy
  • Aid in digestion

Once you begin to drink adequate amounts of water, you will begin to lose your taste for sugary drinks and you won’t reach for them out of habit in order to satisfy your chronic thirst. And as mentioned above your heart does not have to work harder to pump blood.
