Everyone knows of a close friend or family member who seems to collect empty water bottles in his or her car. But while it may look funny, they are most likely reaping all the benefits of being hydrated! Water is essential for the human body to function. The body does not store water so it must have fresh supplies, as water forms the basis of our blood, urine, sweat and digestive fluids. It is recommended that men and women drink at least 8-10 cups of water a day to keep properly hydrated. Eating high-water content foods such as fruit and vegetables can help aid in hydration for those who have a hard time drinking so much liquid. In addition, you can find many different low calorie fruit flavor packets to enhance the flavor of water. Keep drinking water regularly and enjoy the benefits of soft skin, more energy and weight loss!
