We all know we should drink more water. Have you ever really wondered just why though? According to most experts, you want to shoot for 8, 8 oz glasses per day. Sometimes that can be tough….but it’s worth it! Here are some of the benefits to your body…..
Helps with weight loss ~ water will help you feel full, and as a result people tend to consume fewer calories
Muscle fuel ~ when muscles don’t have enough water, they get tired. Stay hydrated while you lift!
Better skin ~ Water flushes out toxins that can result in acne and clogged pores
Fights fatigue ~ One of the common symptoms of dehydration is fatigue
Keeps you regular ~ Drinking water keeps things moving 🙂
