Five benefits of hydration

From softer skin to improved mental performance, the benefits of hydration are aplenty. It is generally recommended to drink between 1.5L and 2L of water per day. So let's find out about some of the main benefits of hydration, and why you should aim to regularly get your daily dose of water! 

 

  1. Boosts mental performance

Staying hydrated is a key factor for positive brain performance. Studies show that as little as 1% of dehydration could reduce your mental performance and lead to headaches or fatigue.

  1. Prevents skin dryness

Skin contains a lot of water, so staying hydrated provides a protective barrier to ensure you don't lose excess fluid.

  1. Supports weight loss

Drinking water not only supresses your appetite, but it also helps boost your metabolism when you drink cold water. This is because your body works extra hard to warm up the cold water. Let's not forget to mention that water has zero calories.

  1. Improves digestion

Water helps dissolve fats and soluble fibres, and therefore makes elimination easier. It also helps prevent constipation and makes the burden easier on your kidneys.

  1. Protects joints

Water keeps your joints hydrated and lubricated, and provides a sort of cushion for your joints.
