6 Benefits Of Staying Hydrated

From your biology class back in high school, you might have been thought that water accounts for 60 percent of your body and is essential to every cell.

A recent study done in Britain showed that drinking water could improve students’ thinking and/or help students stay calm and quell their anxiety, both of which could hinder their test performance

Other researches have suggested that staying hydrated keeps your memory sharp, your mood stable and your motivation intact. You can also think through a problem more easily.

It doesn’t just stop there, staying hydrated has a whole host of health benefits and here are some of them:

1.Water Helps Prevent Dry Mouth

One of the major causes of bad breath and/or unpleasant taste is dry mouth. It could also promote cavities. One way to deal with dry mouth and hence prevent all these from happening is by staying hydrated always. Water keeps your throat and lips moist and prevents your mouth from feeling dry.

2.Water Promotes Cardiovascular Health

Dehydration lowers your blood volume, so your heart must work harder to pump the reduced amount of blood and get enough oxygen to your cells, which makes everyday activities like walking up stairs–as well as exercise–more difficult.

3.Water Keeps Your Body Cool

Your body releases heat by expanding blood vessels close to the skin’s surface (this is why your face gets red during exercise), resulting in more blood flow and more heat dissipated into the air. When you’re dehydrated, however, it takes a higher environmental temperature to trigger blood vessels to widen, so you stay hotter.

4.Water Helps Muscles and Joints Work Better


When you’re well hydrated, the water inside and outside the cells of contracting muscles provides adequate nutrients and removes waste efficiently so you perform better. Water is also important for lubricating joints. Contrary to popular belief, muscle cramps do not appear to be related to dehydration, but, instead, to muscle fatigue, according to Sam Cheuvront, Ph.D., an exercise physiologist.

4.Water Keeps Skin Supple


When a person is severely dehydrated, skin is less elastic. This is different than dry skin, which is usually the result of soap, hot water and exposure to dry air. And, no, unfortunately, drinking lots of water won’t prevent wrinkles.

6.Water Cleanses Toxins from Your Body


Your kidneys need water to filter waste from the blood and excrete it in urine. Keeping hydrated may also help prevent urinary tract infections and kidney stones. If you are severely dehydrated, your kidneys may stop working, causing toxins to build up in your body.



If you’ve ever had doubts in regards to staying hydrated, the aforementioned benefits should put an end to all those doubts.
