The human body consists of around 60% water. It’s commonly recommended that you drink around 2,5l of water per day. Keeping hydrated is crucial for your overall health and well-being, but many people do not consume enough fluids each day. Here, we put together reasons why drinking water should be such an important part of your daily routine.
Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids
Your body is composed of about 60% water. Drinking water will help you maintain the balance of these bodily fluids, functions of which include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature.
Drinking water before, during and after a meal helps your digestive system to break down the food you eat more easily. Therefore, if you frequently experience digestive system problems, you should drink water right after you eat.
If you don’t drink enough water, you are more likely to experience constipation. Drinking water regularly helps to prevent constipation by ensuring unconstrained bowel movements and if you constipated, drinking water can ease the symptoms.
Lubricates the joints
Cartilage, found in joints and spinal disks, contains about 80% water. Long-term dehydration can limit the joints’ shock-absorbing ability, leading to joint pain.
Supports kidneys health
People struggling with kidney stones are increasingly becoming a bigger problem in the health industry. You can avoid this deadly disease by drinking more water. Minerals and salts that can build up in the kidneys and form stones are diluted by water.
Boosts skin health
Drink plenty of water if you wish to appear younger. Water hydrates and plumps up your skin cells, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Drinking water also keeps your skin glowing by flushing out impurities and toxins that make your skin look dull.

Water plays a vital role in boosting the immune system in several ways that include getting rid of the harmful toxins and transporting oxygen to the body cells, ensuring proper functioning of the organism. Drinking water regularly helps fight the flu and its symptoms.

Drinking a sufficient amount of water helps to maintain the proper viscosity of blood and plasma as well as the distribution of fibrinogen thereby maintaining optimal heart health.
Improves oxygen circulation
Drinking water throughout the day will help to enhance oxygen circulation in your body. As water is an essential component of your blood and helps to transport oxygen to every part of the body.
Regulates body temperature
Water is essential in regulating your body temperature. When it gets hot, your body uses sweat to cool down. Drinking water replaces the lost fluid through sweat ensuring that you are comfortable in hot weather.

Drinking water regularly and after eating significantly aids in washing away oral bacteria and leftover food particles that cause bad breath.

Saliva helps us digest the food and keeps the mouth, nose, and eyes moist, thus preventing friction and cell damage.
Transportation of minerals and nutrients throughout the body
It would be impossible for nutrients and minerals to reach all your cells without water. The minerals and nutrients dissolving in the water allows them to reach all your body parts.

Consuming enough water helps your body get rid of harmful toxins through sweat and urine. And by getting rid of toxins, aids in keeping the kidneys and the urinary tract healthy.
