Composed of two measures of hydrogen, and one of oxygen, water is the simplest, yet most important liquid that our universe has to offer. Without it, life on earth would cease to exist.
Water is a crucial part of all body functions and processes, including digestion and elimination. Yet, most of us fall short of consuming the recommended 8 glasses per day – opting instead for sugary drinks and alcohol to quench our thirst.
30 Day Challenge
Have you ever thought about what health benefits would come from drinking ONLY water for 30 days? You may be surprised how your body responds – essentially pushing the “reset” button on bodily functions. Here are just a handful of science-backed reasons to give it a try…
- Decelerates Aging – drinking water helps decelerate the aging process by keeping your skin adequately hydrated.
- Promotes Immune Health – water can also strengthen your immune system by supporting the performance of your liver and kidneys. These organs eliminate harmful substances, such as salt and other toxins from your blood. Water can also strengthen your bones by rebuilding cartilage, the body’s shock absorber, allowing your joints to move more smoothly.
- Weight Loss – you might put on a few extra pounds initially if your body is retaining too much water, before adjusting to the higher intake consumption. Even so, acting as an appetite suppressant, water comes to the rescue. You’ll soon begin to consume fewer calories, lose weight, and keep it off, because the water flushes out your system, cleansing your body and reducing those hunger pangs.
- Improved Metabolic Functions – consuming a mere 16 ounces of water just after rising in the morning ups your metabolism by 24%, according to the Health Fitness Revolution.
