Water accounts for 60 percent of your body and is essential to every cell. At BalanceDiet, we believe that hydration is the key to good health and vitality, and you will hear our health experts speak about hydration frequently.
Many people underestimate the importance of water to the body. Even among the most experienced athletes, including weightlifters, runners, there is a significant gap in knowledge regarding why proper hydration is important both for health, and for competitive success.
Water is critical to the balance of all the body's systems, including the brain, heart, lungs, kidneys and muscles. It is especially critical for anyone trying to lose fat, lose weight, detoxify, or improve their physique.
How important is this balance? Even a 2% drop in your body's water level could impair neuromuscular coordination, decrease concentration, and slow thinking. Dehydration reduces endurance, decreases strength, causes cramping, and slows muscular response. It also makes weight loss (fat loss) extremely difficult.
Here are just a few ways in which water benefits your body’s health.
• Healthier Skin
Staying hydrated is one of the best and least effective ways to maintain healthy skin, as well as healthy skin tone and "glow."
• Healthier Mind and Body
Water is essential for nutrient absorption and proper brain function, including mood and memory.
• Healthier Digestive System
Water is critical to properly metabolize food. Drinking sufficient amounts of water will help to burn more calories, and transport nutrients throughout your body. This is especially important to anyone seeking to lose weight, detoxify, or shed fat.
• Greatly Assists with Fat and Weight Loss
Water can suppress appetite naturally and increases the body's ability to metabolize stored fat. Many studies show that a decrease in water intake can cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.
