1 Maintains Correct Fluid Levels
Without sufficient water intake, the human body simply cannot function. Drinking water on a consistent, regular basis maintains appropriate fluid levels in the body.
Ultimately, a body that fails to maintain appropriate levels of water will die. Access to clean, pure drinking water is that important.
2 Assists in Maintaining Healthy Body Weight
Drinking sufficient water assists in maintaining a healthy body weight. When we feel hungry, we may in fact be thirsty. Consuming appropriate levels of water will help us feel full, thus reducing the need for calorie intake.
3 Clearer, Healthier Skin
Are you hoping to improve the appearance of your skin? Try drinking more water. Water aids in flushing out unhealthy body toxins and reduces the appearance of pimples. Your skin and underlying tissues will be replenished and become more elastic and moisturized.
4 Assists in the Elimination of Waste and Bacteria
Water assists in the elimination of accumulated waste and bacteria. To keep our digestive system operating at peak condition, water is needed to flush out impurities. This takes place in the form of sweat and urine, while helping to prevent constipation.

Very pleased with complete experience and recommend then highly."
5 Assists in Work and Overall Performance
Correct water balance helps to keep our brains alert and focused. It also assists us in physical activities and sports. Our muscles are composed of about 75% water. Dehydration affects our muscles' ability to perform and carry out tasks.
6 Frequency and Intensity of Headaches
Keeping our bodies properly hydrated can reduce the frequency and severity of headaches. This is because dehydration can be a contributing factor in headaches. By ensuring that our water intake is sufficient, headaches can be prevented. In the case of hangovers, water can assist by rehydrating the body as hangovers are caused by dehydration.

7 Maintaining Optimum Body Temperatures
The body uses water to control body temperature. When we exercise strenuously or our bodies are exposed to heat, the body needs a mechanism to reduce our temperature. It accomplishes this by causing us to sweat. As sweat evaporates on our skin, our temperature drops. It stands to reason then, that if we are dehydrated we have less ability to sweat, causing our body temperatures to rise.
8 Aids in Kidney Function
One of the benefits of drinking water is the boost it gives to our organs. Our organs all require correct hydration. This is particularly true of our kidneys.
Our kidneys are responsible for filtering impurities out of our bloodstream and do this with the aid of water. The water also prevents the build up of salts and minerals which cause kidney stones.
9 Helps Body Joints Function
If you suffer from painful joints, increase your water intake. Water reduces joint pain by keeping the cartilage between the joints soft and lubricated. This allows the cartilage to do its job and prevents the bones from pressuring each other where they connect.
10 Prevent Foul Moods
You are more likely to think clearly and be less dazed, confused, and grumpy if you drink sufficient water. Check your urine to make sure that it is mostly clear. This is an indication that your body is receiving an adequate intake of water.
