Everybody knows that consuming water is highly beneficial to your health, but what exactly does it provide for your body? A recent study has shown that a vast amount of individuals who increased their water consumption by 1 percent reduced their calorie intake and their consumption of saturated fat, sugar, sodium, and cholesterol decreased.
With the holidays around the corner, it’s so easy to be consumed by the mass amounts of fatty and high sodium foods, and indulging in the very persuasive desert foods. For individuals who wants to control their intake, as well as their weight it’s important to increase their water intake. “People who increased their consumption of water by one, two or three cups daily decreased their total energy intake by 68 to 205 calories daily and their sodium intake by 78 to 235 milligrams, according to a paper by University of Illinois kinesiology and community health professor Ruopeng An.”
But not only does it just aid in weight loss, it also increases your energy and relieves fatigue, boosts your immune system, improves skin complexion, and is a natural headache remedy. Sometimes water is so overlooked and we need to be reminded of the amazing benefits provided. From now on don’t hesitate, hydrate!
