Yeah, yeah, you’ve heard it a million times-Drinking water is vital for your health. But... why? Are there better times and better ways to drink water? Andrea Trank, FYZICAL Metro’s Certified Health Coach and Yoga Instructor, explains why you should be drinking more pure water (even if you are thinking you are drinking enough).
You are what you... drink!
70% of your body is composed of water, and that percentage actually diminishes as we age! In fact, your brain is actually 50% water. Sometimes when you are not thinking clearly or have a headache, you are simply dehydrated!
Cellular hydration-the ability of cell membranes to hold water within a cell-is one of the keys to staying youthful. Your skin reflects your health at the cellular level.
Helps balance your weight
Many times when you think you are hungry you are actually thirsty, so try drinking some water before reaching for a snack. In fact, drinking a glass of water (room temperature or warmer) can help you digest your food.
