Benefits of Water

Nourish by WebMD

Drinking water is essential to your health.  Think of water as a nutrient your body needs.  "Fluid losses occur continuously, from skin evaporation, breathing, urine, and stool, and these losses must be replaced daily for good health" according to Kaiser Permanente nephrologist Steven Guest, MD.


You can become dehydrated when your intake does not equal your output.  You lose fluid at higher rates in warmer climates, doing strenuous exercise, high altitudes, and some older adults sense of thirst may not be as sharp as it use to.


6 reasons to make sure you are drinking enough water every day:


1.  Drinking water helps maintain the balance of body fluids.  Did you know your body is composed of about 60% water.  Did you know that alcohol interferes with your brain and kidney communication which causes excess excretion of fluids, which can then lead to dehydration?


2.  Water can help control calories.  Water doesn't have a magical effect on weight loss, but substituting it for higher calorie beverages does help.


3. Water helps energize muscles. Cells that don't maintain their balance of fluids and electrolytes shrivel, with can result in muscle fatigue. This can cause them not to work as well.


4.  Water helps keep skin looking good.  Skin contains plenty of water, and it functions as protective barrier to prevent excess fluid loss.  Dehydration makes your skin look more dry and wrinkled.


5.  Water helps your kidneys.  Body fluids transport waste in and out of your cells as long as your intake of fluids is adequate.


6.  Water helps maintain normal bowel function. Hydration keeps thing flowing.
