5 Foods That Can Keep The Body Hydrated

Water is essential to life and definitely the best means of keeping the body hydrated. You will need to drink sufficient amounts of water  for the body to function well on a daily basis, which in return, would reduce the risk of getting dehydrated and several other health risks.

Water can be passed into the body by different means, and not just by drinking natural water like some think. Some foods provide water in the body and at the same time give healthy nutrients that the body requires. So if water is just too boring for you, here is a list of some other healthy foods that will provide your body with water and nutrients at the same time:

1. Cucumber                                                                                                                                                                                     cucumber

Cucumber contains over 90% of water, together with vitamin C and caffeic acid. It helps to reduce swelling and soothe irritations on the skin surface. It can also be made into cucumber soup, for more effective use by blending with few ingredients like: non-fat yoghurt, mint, vegetable broth, and so on.

2. Watermelon                                                                                                                                                                                     watermelon

Watermelon is known to be one of the top leading fruits that can influence health positively. It has a 92% water content, is rich in vitamin C, strongly helps to keep the body hydrated and contains other nutrients which help to maintain health. Some other benefits include healthier skin and hair. Interestingly, every part of the watermelon is useful, including its seeds.

3. Chicken soup                                                                                                                                                                                   Chicken soup

According to recent studies, chicken soup can actually be medicinal in certain cases. This food helps to improve health and hyrdate the body, as it supplies more water needed for it to function effectively, along with other health benefits.

4. Tomatoes                                                                                                                                                                                           tomatoes

Tomatoes, especially the juicy ones, contain as much as 94% of water. They help smoothen the skin, as well as improve hydration, due to their large water content. For best effect, tomatoes should be taken fresh and raw.

5. Milk                                                                                                                                                                                                   milk

Skimmed milk contains a lot of nutrients needed to maintain proper health for the human body. Aside from the fact that milk is rich in calcium which is important for forming and maintaining strong bones, it is also made up 91% of water which is essential for keeping the body well hydrated.

6. Pineapple                                                                                                                                                                                         pineapple

Pineapples are thought to be one of the healthiest fruits known to man. They are usually juicy and contain a number of nutrients such as fiber and vitamin C, in addition to large amounts of water that help to keep the body well hydrated.

7. Bell peppers                                                                                                                                                                                    bell pepper

Bell peppers usually come in three main colors, green, yellow, and red, and are highly rich in water content. Ingesting a lot of these peppers would reduce the risk of getting dehydrated and help to smoothen the skin.
