Did you know that water can help with fatigue, hunger, dry skin and trouble with concentrating? Water is the primary chemical component that the body uses and it makes up nearly 60% of your body weight. Your body looses water every day through simple tasks such as breathing and perspiration. How much water is enough? It varies with each person. On average, you should drink 8 or more glasses of water a day. Although this depends on your health, how active you are and where you live. Typically, your urine will tell you if you need more water or if you are hydrated. The clearer the better!
- If you are feeling fatigue during the day, reach for a glass of water before you grab another cup of coffee.
- Are you constantly feeling hungry? Drink some water before you consume more food to fill your stomach. The signals that your brain sends for hunger and thirst are very similar; so you may actually need to hydrate instead of eat more food.
- No one likes dry, itchy skin! If you drink enough water, then your skin will stay hydrated with a youthful glow!
- Your brain relies heavily on water to function properly, so help it out by fueling it with some extra water to stay focused on your daily tasks.
