When we drink water, but especially when we drink sufficient water, beneficial changes take place in our bodies and the metabolic processes adjust. We have selected just 5 reasons for which it is worth drinking more water.
1. Weight loss
Water is one of the best allies against weight gaining, not only because it successfully replaces soft drinks that are rich in calories, but also because it offers a feeling of satiety. We often think we are hungry when actually we are just thirsty.
2. Good for the health of the heart
When we drink sufficient water in comparison to the need of the body, a considerable quantity may reduce the risk of a heart attack. A study performed throughout six years and published on May 1st, 2002 by the American Journal of Epidemiology indicated that people who drink more than 5 glasses of water per day have by 41% fewer chances to suffer a heart attack than the ones who drink less than two glasses.
3. In need of more energy?
Dehydration leads to fatigue and irascibility — even a slight dehydration indicates the loss of one per cent or even two of water from the body mass. If one feels thirsty, it means that the body is already dehydrated and this leads to the weakening of muscles, dizziness, slight depression and a general altered state.
4. Healthier skin
The correct hydration is directly responsible for the beauty of the skin and most people have a healthy aspect when they drink a lot of water. Of course, this is not an immediate effect but one week of sufficient water drinking will be visible also by the ones around you.
5. Good bye, digestive problems
The digestive system needs a considerable quantity of water to function at ideal parameters and to digest food efficiently. Often still water can ameliorate (even cure) the problems caused by the gastric acidity. Combined with a diet rich in fibres, constipation will not be a problem, especially because one of its main causes is dehydration.
