1. Prevents dehydration.
Dehydration can make you dizzy and tired more easily than normal. It can make you feel nauseous. If you are dehydrated, you could even pass out or even die from it. The best hydrating agent is water. So, we must drink enough water to keep hydrated.
2. Regulates body temperature.
The body water has an important role as a thermoregulator, regulating the overall body temperature by helping dissipate heat. If the body becomes too hot, water is lost through sweat and the evaporation of this sweat from the skin surface removes heat from the body. So, we must consume enough amount of water for thermoregulation.
3. Helps in Digestion and Constipation.
Drinking water during or after meals helps so much indigestion system of your body. It helps in digestion by breaking down food so that your body can absorb the nutrients. Water softens the stool so it also helps in constipation.

The benefits/ results are even larger when you replace sweets and sugary foods, drinks with water. As water is the best for thirst control, it really is a good drink for weight loss.
5. Improves skin complexion.
Not only does water keep you hydrated and refreshed, but it also helps maintain your skin’s elasticity. It obviously can reduce wrinkles. People who drink large amounts of water, won’t show as many signs of aging as those who drink little amounts of water. It is safe to say that drinking enough water can make you look younger than your age.
6. Helps in Metabolism.
Drinking water increases your metabolism by up to 25% for nearly an hour after drinking it. If you drink a cup of water(300 ml) every hour, your metabolism will be at its peak performance. A high metabolism means that you will need to take in more calories to maintain your weight. That’s one reason why some people can eat more than others without gaining weight. If your metabolism is “high” (or fast), you will burn more calories at rest and during activity.
Although water is good for us, nothing is good about consuming a lot. So, have your limits. I wish you all be healthy and happy.
