Water has many benefits beyond simply keeping you hydrated. In this blog, we discuss four little known benefits of drinking plenty of H2O. For example, water can help you lose weight. Often when you have that feeling of being hungry, it is actually your body telling you to take on more fluids. Drinking water can keep your appetite in check, so a glass of water instead of a chocolate bar will certainly help you keep the calories down! If you drink enough water, your body will not need to retain as much fluid, and this has a number of benefits. Firstly, it can help in burning stored fat. How? Well if you don’t drink enough water your liver will be busy helping the kidneys get your body detoxed. With plenty of water however, the liver can get down to what it should be doing and breaking down stored body fat. Talking of fluid retention, drinking plenty of water can also help keep you looking young. By not drinking enough water, you force your body to retain more fluids, which can cause puffy skin. Furthermore, those who don’t drink enough fluids may find themselves suffering from dry skin. Then, to counter this, they may invest in a variety of skin creams and moisturising products. However, by just keeping up with the regular consumption of water they can avoid the need to spend so much on expensive moisturisers, as water will help keep the skin naturally moisturised. If you’ve not been won over by the benefits of water yet, perhaps the fact that water is said to make you smarter will get you rushing to the water cooler. It is believed water helps get oxygen to the brain more effectively. Not only that, it may also help support your nerve function too. This is because it helps keep electrolyte levels high. Finally, water could also help make muscles stronger. Water plays a role in transporting oxygen to all cells in the body, and muscles are no exception!
