How Much Water Should You Drink?

At least, half your weight, in ounces, up to one gallon per day!

WHY:

  • Helps you to maintain a proper blood volume of 92% water. This gives you more energy and prevents blood thickening, which can lead to high blood pressure and other heart diseases.
  • Guess what? Water helps prevent constipation!
  • Reportedly decreases the risk of colon cancer, breast cancer, and bladder cancer.
  • The toxins in our bodies are flushed out through urination and sweat, both of which we do more frequently when properly hydrated.
  • Lose weight by drinking more water. Specifically ice water, which burns more calories during your regular daily activities.
  • You should experience fewer kidney stones and urinary tract infections if you drink more water.
  • Believe it or not, your brain works best when properly hydrated. This improves concentration and reaction time, which is important for working and working out.
  • Helps ease gastrointestinal distress, especially when taking medication.
  • Helps get rid of excess sodium, which causes fluid retention. By drinking enough water, you will actually lose weight, even if it’s only water weight.
  • Helps you prevent and recover from a cold or a flu.
