Water is the most essential element on Earth and it’s more important to our body than food, so it’s really a well-known fact that we need lots of it in our everyday life.

Everybody tells us that it promotes good bowel movements and it flushes out toxins, but what are the less popular benefits of drinking water?

1. It helps you lose weight.

  • Drinking a lot of water keeps you full, so you end up eating less. Also, it helps your liver metabolize stored fat more efficiently.

2. Drinking water helps you build muscle mass.

  • Water carries oxygen to different parts of your body including your muscles. Drinking a lot of it will push your muscles to work for longer so you can build more muscle mass.

3. It also helps you stay sharp.

  • Our brains also need oxygen to function and when we drink a lot of water, we increase our cognitive function to optimal levels. Drinking the standard 8 to 10 glasses of water can increase our sharpness up to 30%.

4. Drinking water is good for the joints.

  • For those who are having joint problems, you better start drinking a lot of water. Drinking water puts moisture to your joints for it to stay strong and flexible. Try drinking 10 glasses a day for a week and feel how smooth and pain-free your movements will be.

5. Drinking water keeps you looking young.

  • Drinking water helps your skin stay moisturized, and a moisturized skin reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Now, all you have to do is drive to Landers Superstore to buy that huge water bottle you passed by yesterday so you can keep track of your daily water consumption.
