FACTS ABOUT WATER: reasons why you should drink more water than you already do now.

The more you engage in exercise and fitness routines the more you need water, in fact your body will demand it.
Here are some things you should know about water:

Dehydration occurs when you lose one percent of your body mass to loss of fluids.

Feeling thirsty is usually an indicator that your body system needs water. Unfortunately, by the time you feel thirsty enough to desperately need water your body system is already mildly dehydrated. So drink water as often as possible. Four glasses when you wake up and at least eight glasses a day. Keep your body very hydrated.

Do you want to avoid having wrinkles and dry skin, then you need to continuously drink water. Make it a habit. Wrinkles and dry skin are sure signs of dehydration or signs your body is not getting enough water daily. If you sweat often or keep a regular fitness routine, you need to replenish lost fluids by drinking more water.

If you love your kidneys, drink more water. The more you drink water, the more you put off ever having kidney stones. Prevention is always simpler and easier than the cure.

Studies have shown that decrease in water intake can affect your overall physical performance. Start your mornings with enough water you will see that you will be active enough to take on your daily activities, even on less food. 

Dehydration can affect your mental alertness and fitness. When you are dehydrated, you experience fatigue, mental sluggishness, even decreased visual alertness. Don’t get to this point before you drink water.

 Please, replace that coffee on your work table with water. If you like carbonated drinks, you will save yourself from gaining extra weight you don’t need by drinking water instead. Grow your love for water; it will save you unnecessary distress in the future.

Water helps a lot in blood circulation and transporting the nutrients your cells need. Therefore, while you exercise to keep fit, drink more water.
