7 Water Benefits You Probably Didn’t Know About

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

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.

Reduces Cancer Risks

Some studies show that drinking a healthy amount of water may reduce the risks of bladder cancer and colon cancer. Water dilutes the concentration of cancer-causing agents in the urine and shortens the time in which they are in contact with bladder lining.

Helps Muscles & Joints

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

Helps You Lose Weight

Obesity is a contributing factor to many different health conditions today. But drinking water can help boost your metabolism and help you feel fuller, thus helping you succeed in your weight loss goals.

Boosts Your Energy

Dehydration makes you feel tired, and prevents you from being as productive as you’d like to be, whether it’s at work or at the gym. But drinking water can help your heart pump your blood more effectively and can help your blood transport oxygen and other essential nutrients to your cells. The result: more productivity, because you can think more clearly, you’re more alert, and you’re more focused.

So…drink up!
