Benefits of drinking water & staying hydrated
Keeping ourselves hydrated throughout the day is essential to maintaining our health and with over 60% of our body being made up of water, it is crucially needed in order to function optimally.
Guidelines unofficially recommend that we aim to drink 8 glasses of water a day, so here are our top 3 reasons for you to keep drinking:
- Help prevents headaches & migraines
Dehydration is a known trigger of migraines and has been proven in studies to be the cause of headaches in up to 40% of cases. Keeping on top of your hydration goals can help you keep debilitating headaches at bay and leave you to get on with your day.
- Helps optimise your physical performance.
Not keeping on top of your water levels can mean that when you start your exercise, not only will your core temperature rise faster but your heart will have to work harder to keep up. Making sure you’re drinking plenty of water will not only help you to perform the best you can but will make sure you feel great long after your workout has finished.
- Helps with weight loss
Making sure you drink plenty of water can be a key factor in aiding weight loss. Not only does it increase satiety but it has been proven to boost your metabolic rate. Studies have also shown that drinking a glass of water up to 30 minutes before eating a meal can lead to you eating less during your meal.
