It’s darn near impossible to turn the TV these days without seeing umpteen commercials on how you can improve the quality of your life. Health and nutrition experts are also frequent guests on the morning news shows – some even have their own programs.

With so much advice coming your way from every which direction, how do you know what to do and, for that matter, how much of it is true? The plain answer is, you can’t.

And yet here’s one health tip that no one argues, i.e., the need to drink more water. In fact, and according to the Center for Disease Control, nearly 50% of Americans don’t drink enough. The national average? Less than 4 cups per day vs. the recommended amount of eight 8-ounce glasses.

How can increasing your water intake benefit you? Let’s have a look:

  1. More energy. Since one byproduct of dehydration is fatigue, drinking more water helps you perform at your most energetic self all day long.
  2. Weight loss. People often confuse hunger for thirst, so they eat when they really should drink. That’s why, for example, having a glass of water before a meal or when craving a snack can make you feel full and satisfy your “hunger” for something to consume.
  3. Reduce bodily waste and toxins. A build-up of waste and toxins can result in constipation and other digestive issues, such as gas, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, and even loss of appetite.
  4. Reduced risk of hypertension. When your body lacks water, the brain signals the pituitary gland to secrete vasopressin, a substance that causes constriction of blood vessels, which can cause your pressure to rise.
  5. Maintain your balance of bodily fluids. Your body is composed of about 60% water which is charged with several important functions: digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature. When you’re low on fluids, your brain sends you a signal – think of it as gentle tap on the shoulder. Get to know that signal and drink more water to make it stop and replenish your supply.

While drinking the right amount of water is one key to overall good health, the quality of your drinking water is equally important. If you have any doubts about your home water supply, CT Mechanical Solutions and confirm to refute your suspicions.
