WATER FOR HEALTH
Drinking Water is part of a Healthy Lifestyle! Water is essential for good health. Here are just a few reasons why it is important to drink water every day: Over 60 percent of your body weight is made up of water. Your body needs water to function at its highest level and avoid dehydration. Every system in your body depends on it. From carrying nutrients to your cells to flushing toxins from your body, water helps the entire body function smoothly. Run low on fluids and you’ll feel the consequences: fatigue, dry skin, digestive problems and high blood pressure. Water gives you energy. Fatigue is one of the first signs of dehydration. Sipping on water helps energize muscles. This is especially important when you are exercising, being active or playing sports to ensure you can perform your best. Run faster and be stronger by drinking water!
Water improves students’ school performance. It helps you have a clear mind, more focus, and better memory. Water boosts your mood. Mild dehydration is enough to impair thinking and make you feel cranky. Rehydrating throughout the day will keep your mind clear and motivated!
Drinking water is the key to beauty. Drinking enough water will make your skin glow and your hair radiant! Drinking water can help with weight management. Substituting water instead of sugary drinks reduces your caloric intake and
risk of obesity and diabetes.
