5 Benefits of Hydration

  • By Innov8tive Team
  • Published January 26, 2017
  • Tagged ,

We hear all the time that we need to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated for optimum health. How do you calculate the right amount of water for you? The general rule is that you should drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, that would be 75 to 150 ounces of water a day.

Hydration

What are the benefits of proper hydration?

1. HYDRATION IS A HEART HELPER

Dehydration lowers your blood volume, so your heart must work harder to pump the blood and through your system to get enough oxygen to your cells.

2. HYDRATION HELPS EXERCISE

Being properly hydrated helps you cool down when you heat up from exercise as well as keeping your joints lubricated.

3. HYDRATION MAKES YOUR SKIN LOOK YOUNGER

Proper hydration plumps the skin making fine lines less noticeable. When you are dehydrated the skin becomes less elastic.

4. HYDRATION CLEANSES TOXINS

To filter waste from the blood your kidneys need lots of water to excrete the toxins through your urine. Proper hydration can also help prevent urinary tract infections and kidney stones.

5. HYDRATION CAN HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS

Studies have shown that when water is consumed before a meal, people lose weight faster than those who did not drink water. Water can help you eat less by making you feel fuller. It’s not unusual to mistake thirst for hunger — so try drinking some water before grabbing a snack to make sure you’re not just thirsty.
