We all have things in the back of our mind that we want to do that we haven’t gotten to try yet…You know that feeling ?
Of course regular exercise and eat healthy means good health, lovely glowing skin and staying fit but many people forgot to drink regularly.
For your health, here are 4 reasons to drink water and feel better !
1. It could help you lose weight. In a study published in the journal Obesity in 2010, adult dieters who drank a bottle of water before each meal for 12 weeks lost more weight than the dieters who didn’t drink the water beforehand. We’ll drink (water) to that!
2. It may prevent kidney disease People who consume the most fluids have a significantly lower risk of chronic kidney disease, according to a 2011 study out of the University of Sydney in Australia.
3. It can make you run faster—and safer In a 2011 study, 14 runners completed two sets of laps—one in which they showed up hydrated and got water during breaks, and one in which they had to limit their fluid intake during the run and for 22 hours beforehand. When they were able to get their hydration on, the runners had faster times and lower gastrointestinal body temperatures and healthier heart rates post-run.
4. It’ll put you in a better mood In a study published last year in The Journal of Nutrition, mildly dehydrated young women experienced headaches, fatigue, worsened mood, and difficulty concentrating. Yikes.
