Healthy Wonders of Water

Please find below some very interesting facts of water:

Stay Slimmer With Water

Trying to lose weight? Water revs up metabolism and helps you feel full.

Replace calorie-laden beverages with water, and drink a glass before meals to help you feel fuller.

Drinking more water also helps amp up metabolism - especially if your glass is icy cold. Your body must work to warm the water up, burning a few extra calories in the process.


Water Boosts Your Energy

If you’re feeling drained and depleted, get a pick-me-up with water. Dehydration makes you feel fatigued.

Water helps the blood transport oxygen and other essential nutrients to your cells.

If you’re getting enough water, your heart also doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood throughout your body.


Lower Stress With Water

85% of your brain tissue is water. If you’re dehydrated, both your body and your mind will be stressed.

If you’re feeling thirsty, you’re already a little dehydrated.

To keep stress levels down, keep a glass of water at your desk or tote a sports bottle and sip regularly.


Build Muscle Tone With Water

Drinking water helps prevent muscle cramping and lubricates joints in the body.

When you’re well hydrated, you can exercise longer and stronger without "hitting the wall."

Nourish Your Skin

Fine lines and wrinkles are deeper when you’re dehydrated. Water is nature’s own beauty cream.

Drinking water hydrates skin cells and plumps them up, making your face look younger.

It also flushes out impurities and improves circulation and blood flow, leaving your face clean, clear, and glowing.


Stay Regular With Water

Along with fiber, water is essential to good digestion.

Water helps dissolve waste particles and passes them smoothly through your digestive tract.

If you’re dehydrated, your body absorbs all the water, leaving your colon dry and making it more difficult to pass waste.


Water Reduces Kidney Stones

The rate of painful kidney stones is rising because people - including children - aren't drinking enough water.

Water dilutes the salts and minerals in your urine that form the solid crystals known as kidney stones.

Kidney stones can't form in diluted urine, so reduce your risk with plenty of water!



Are You Drinking Enough Water?

Generally, nutritionists recommend we follow the "8x8 rule."

Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.

You may need more water if you exercise or sweat heavily.

You may need less water if you drink other beverages often.

Thanks for gud and also useful infomation. Somebody has already told that for long life solid diet should be minimised to 50% whereas water consumption should be doubled...... and  laughing should be quadrapled......
Excellent piece of information,Suresh.
In addition to all the benefits you have mentioned,drinking  water  in the morning before taking tea or coffee relieves  you of all unwanted things in the stomach, and drinking water while taking food helps quicker and  easier digestion.

Yes, I do agree of taking water plenty. A simple identification of your body' needs of water is "Dis-coloration of Urine" i.e. from White to Yellowish on various shades.The moment, you see a change in color tells you that you need water. We need not dispute on quantity of water. It ranges from 2 lit- 3 lit per day.During summer / hot weather, we need particularly, to take frequent water to replenish the needs of the body.

Thanks Suresh. My friends here are going overboard saying that one should have to drink 4 to 5 Ltrs of Water a day. Sorry folks, this makes yr kidney suffer.  Average 3 Ltrs of water one can drink. However, another a litre/ half u will consume indirectly, thro,Juices, coffee,tea,milk,dal,rasam,chaas, etc.

Start your day with two glass of luke warm water. Especially for women must drink so that it will flush out all the bad toxins causing Urinary Infections & protects urinary tracks.

Some people r on the opinion that unless they feel thirsty, how can they drink water?  whether u r thirsty or not,make it a habit to drink water with regular interval you will find the benefit your self.
