Our brain is 90% water and our body is over 70% water. The majority of our blood and every cell in our bodies are composed of water. Therefore, it makes common sense that we absolutely need water to function properly. Drink one quart of water as soon as you wake up as part of your daily routine. Our bodies are hard at work during the night cleaning, healing and rejuvenating all of our cells and systems. The water will flush out all those toxins and replenish our liver and kidneys among other things. Here are some of the internal benefits I wanted to share that I notice when I am drinking enough water daily. These might be things you may not necessarily think of.
1. The hands down number one benefit I experience is with my intestinal tract or should I say, my elimination. Without going into too much detail, I can struggle in this area. With the aid of lots of water I have a happy, healthy bowel. LOL. On a serious note, I never knew how important a healthy bowel is. An unhealthy bowel can have a negative impact on so many areas in our bodies. My favorite herbal doctor, Richard Schulze, says, “retained fecal waste causes everything from bad skin, bad breath and backaches, to headaches and low energy, and contributes to the worsening of every known major disease.”
2. Another benefit of drinking water is I noticed all of my skin absolutely glows. My skin is so incredibly soft and healthy looking year round. I also know that adding lemon to our water is a great source of Vitamin C. Dr. Axe says Vitamin C “stimulates white blood cell production, vital for your immune system to function properly. As an antioxidant, vitamin C also protects cells from oxidative damage. Plus, getting enough vitamin C helps the immune system keep colds and flu at bay.” Not to mention the benefit to our liver and kidneys’ ability to flush toxins and better perform their jobs.
3. It’s worth mentioning that water also significantly aids in our bladder and urinary tract health. In addition, it has been reported that water helps us lose weight, boosting our metabolism and shedding excess water weight. You might notice a boost in your energy levels as well.
Good news is the more water you drink, the more you will start to crave it. I hope you drink more water everyday, so you too can have a happy, healthy body!
