Why Water is SO Important for your Wellness!

Water is an absolutely vital component of healthy living. Without a sufficient supply, our bodies can suffer from a wide variety of health ailments including: migraines, constipation, muscle cramps, kidney problems, dehydration etc. In many cases, you may not even be aware that you're dehydrated. Although many symptoms may only seem vaguely connected to poor hydration, there are a few telltale signs that you may need to drink more water.

A very common, easy and accurate way to determine if your body is properly hydrated is to examine your urine.  If you are drinking enough water, your urine should be pale yellow to clear in colour. On the other hand, a dark yellow to nearly orange urine colour indicates that you are probably not consuming enough water. Other indicators of dehydration include: dry skin, thirst, hunger and fatigue. It is recommended that you should try to drink water even when you don't necessarily feel thirsty.

Every single cell in our body needs water for survival. The human body itself is made up of approximately two thirds water. The brain consists of 90% water, while bone is made up of 22%, blood 83%, and muscle 75%! With so much water needed for our existence, it’s no wonder why it plays such a huge role in our health and lives. Water:

1.       Helps with metabolism

2.       Protects vital organs

3.       Helps organs absorb nutrients

4.       Detoxifies

5.       Regulates body temperature

6.       Transports nutrients and oxygen into cells.

Although many people's opinions differ in what the optimal daily water intake is, common practice suggests that eight glasses a day will be sufficient in keeping your body well hydrated.
