health benefits of drinking waterThere is a lot of information out there about ‘how much’ water is the best amount of water, and I’m not about to make claims as to how much water you need to be drinking every day for optimal health because the truth is fairly obvious: it depends. It depends on a number of things, including how much you exert yourself throughout the day, how much watery foods you are eating, and how many toxins your body is needing to flush through.

What I do know for sure, based on my personal experiences and my own research, is that there a number of health benefits of drinking CLEAN water, and there are challenges associated with dehydration. That is what this article will cover.

How Important Is Drinking Water?

As we all know, our bodies are made up mostly of water molecules, and every system in the body depends upon water to function properly. Water works with the body to detox vital organs, carry nutrients to the cells, and provide moisture to all of the vital areas, such as to the throat tissues and to the nostrils. Without water, those are some of the areas that would not work the way they are meant to work.

Health Challenges and Dehydration

This is not an article to make medical claims, this is an article to share information, much of which a person could do their own research to find. Some of the health challenges that have been shown to be improved by proper hydration (drinking enough water), include the following:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Heat Stroke and Heat Exhaustion
  • Diarrhea and Intestinal troubles
  • Blood pressure problems
  • Headaches and Migraines

Not only can health challenges be overcome by drinking enough clean water, but good health can also be maintained. What is the quote about an ounce of prevention? Oh yes, it was Benjamin Franklin who said “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Isn’t that the truth!

Did you know that children and older adults are at a higher risk of developing dehydration symptoms than are younger people? This is for a number of reasons, and this article explains it all quite well:

Health Benefits of Drinking Water

Now that we have covered some of the main challenges of not drinking enough water, let’s move on to the good stuff: what kind of health benefits can someone experience from drinking a good amount of clean water throughout the day? Below are a few examples of the health benefits of drinking water, and how water can truly impact your body (*again, no medical claims being put forward here).

  • Better movement of nutrients throughout the body
  • Less dry systems (skin, for example)
  • Possibly fewer headaches and migraines
  • Improved ability to flush out toxins
  • Decreased likelihood of developing dehydration-related illness
  • Overall maintenance of good health

Thank you for your feedback, Harry. Although it’s quite obvious that we all need to drink water, there are so many people that just don’t do it, or have a lack of quality drinking water to access. We hope this blog post will help them. We wish you the best with your health, and thank you again for taking the time to comment!
