Why water is important to your health!

Water makes up a majority of your body weight and is involved in many important bodily functions that are important for us to live a healthy life.💦

  • 💧Flushing out waste from your body💧

  • 💧Regulating body temperature💧

  • 💧Helping your brain function💧

Did you know that food also contributes to your daily water intake, although most of your water comes from drinking beverages?

Need more convincing to drink more water? Look what else it does for you!👀

  1. It helps create saliva

  2. It regulates your body temperature

  3. It protects your tissues, spinal cord, and joints

  4. It helps excrete waste through perspiration, urination, and defecation

  5. It helps maximize physical performance

  6. It helps prevent constipation

  7. It aids in digestion

  8. It helps with nutrient absorption

  9. It helps you lose weight

  10. It improves blood oxygen circulation

  11. It helps fight off illness

  12. It helps boost energy

  13. It aids in cognitive function

  14. It helps improve mood

  15. It helps keep skin bright

  16. It prevents overall dehydration

OK, now that you are convinced 😉, you're probably asking yourself, "How much should I drink in a day?" Well, according to the Mayo Clinic, women should generally drink about 9 cups of fluids a day, while men should aim for 12.💦

If you'd like a more precise number you can figure it by your body weight:

  1. Take your weight (in pounds) and divide that by 2.2.

  2. Multiply that number depending on your age: If you're younger than 30, multiply by 40. If you're between 30-55, multiply by 35. If you're older than 55, multiply by 30.

  3. Divide that sum by 28.3.

  4. Your total is how many ounces of water you should drink each day. Divide that number by 8 to see your result in cups.

Let's have some fun😊! Comment below on how many cups YOU should be drinking a day...and are you doing it?🤷‍♂️🤷‍
