Health Benefits of Water

It's no secret that water is great for helping weight loss, because drinking water can keep you feeling full so that you don’t eat as much, which may help you lose weight. But, did you know that if you don’t drink enough water every day, you can experience daytime fatigue? Well it’s true.

Water can help with weight loss, but water is actually crucial for our bodies to function properly. Water helps promote good digestion, as well as transporting the nutrients we eat to our cells. Without water, our digestive track will not function well, and lack of proper hydration may cause headaches, fatigue, constipation, and diarrhea.

Not drinking enough water can cause daytime fatigue. A small 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short term memory, and drinking water can decrease colon cancer by 45%, Breast Cancer by 79%, and Bladder Cancer by 50%.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water per day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers. 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short term memory

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on a computer screen or printed page.
                                                     
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of Colon Cancer by 45%, Breast Cancer by 79%, and Bladder Cancer by 50%.

So drink up your daily 5 glasses of water!
