Why Is Water Good For You?February 3, 2016
Life’s biggest question: “Why?”
Other deviations: “Why, why, why!?” “Why me?” “Why not?” “Why oh why?” “But why?” And “Why now?”
We at Azure Water, the premier bottled water manufacturer and co-packer, aren’t as inclined to addressing the philosophically profound inquiries of human existence as we are in discussing H2O, which more closely falls under our area of expertise. Our deep-thinking question: “Why is water good for you?”
As an avid reader of these scholastic and in-depth analyses on all facets of water consumption and bottle-water issues, we must ask ourselves the big questions – not necessarily because we’re pondering weighty matters, but because we’re thirsty, by golly.
So onward we shall proceed.
Drinking Water Improves Mood
First, here are the basics: Drinking water is refreshing and generally puts you in a better mood. It helps you in many ways. It flushes your kidneys, energizes your brains, lubricates your circulation, hydrates your skin and improves your digestion.
Second, we can’t survive without water for more three days, healthcare experts say. Since more than 70 percent of the human body is water, drinking adequate quantities helps regulate metabolism, flushes wastes, maintains proper body temperatures and provides energy to muscles.
Third, the human body functions as a water machine, according to Global Healing Center. Experts have debunked previously held notions that the condition of the body’s solid tissue is what determines good health.
“We now know the opposite to be true, the fluids that flow through our body are what create our level of well being,” the Global Healing Center states. “If we are made up of 72 percent plain water, then naturally the quality of the water we consume will have a very dramatic impact on our overall state of health. Every healing and life-giving process that happens in our body happens through water.”
Even mild dehydration leads to problems, such as moodiness, fatigue and confusion, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Drinking water improves mood and thinking.
So how much water should you drink?
“It depends on your size and weight, and also on your activity level and where you live,” said Trent Nessler, managing director of Baptist Sports Medicine in Nashville, in The Cheat Sheet. “In general, you should try to drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day.”
