Health Benefit of Drinking Water

Updated on November 4, 2011

Water And Health

Water. Can you believe some people really just dislike drinking water. Hopefully this hub will encourage those who do not like drinking water, will begin to do so for their health. Drinking water has a multitude of great health benefits. I prefer drinking bottled water and not tap. Drinking distilled water also has a benefit. Distilled water helps to pull toxic out of the body. The body must be hydrated, and the only way for it to stay hydrated is to drink water, and fluids. The skin will benefit by your drinking 7 - 8 glasses of water daily. Distilled water in my own personal opinion has a better taste. The body is approximately 62% water -- your body needs drinking water to maintain balance.

Water And The Heart

Without drinking water it causes the heart to work much harder. The heart is an organ which beats over 2 billion times in a person's lifetime. It is the organ which pumps blood throughout the body. The heart weights between 8 - 10 ounces, and between 10 - 12 ounces in men.

A benefit of drinking water, and plenty of it is enabling the heart to work easier and more effectively. Why? Because the heart has to pump blood. If you do not drink water the blood begins to become thicker which puts stress on the heart making it work harder to pump blood. Drinking water helps the blood stay in a healthy state to move easily throughout the body.

Water And The Brain

Did you know 85% of your brain tissue is water? Your brain needs, water, water, water. Drinking water is essential for good brain health. Whether you are drinking water purified or distilled, or natural spring water your brain thanks you! When you are not drinking enough water your brain suffers. Did you know you can dehydrate your brain by not getting enough water. Believe it or not one sign that your brain is not getting enough water is forgetfulness.

Your Kidney's And Why You Should Drink Water

Your kidney's benefit from your drinking water to decrease the chances of forming kidney stones. Those who have ever experience a kidney stone know it is not a pleasant experience. Kidney stones are created by bacteria that builds up and form a protein which crystalize in stones. A body that is dehydrated has an increased possibility of forming stones. The kidney, and liver work in the body to get rid to waste. Kidney stones are very painful, I have never had one but have spoke to others who have had a stone. On the pain scale it comes in at 10++.

Drinking Water And Your Skin

Whether you are drinking water purified or distilled, or natural spring water your brain thanks you! When you are not drinking enough water your brain suffers. Did you know you can dehydrate your brain by not getting enough water? Believe it or not one sign that your brain is not getting enough water is forgetfulness

As for your skin, your skin is 70% water, and to kept your skin well hydrated you should be drinking at least 2 liters of water a day.  Without drinking enough water it results in dry skin, and skin that is not moist. Drink up for the health of each cell in your body.  Every cell needs water to function correctly.

    It is a shame that the water out of the tap has fluoride added to it and I am glad to see that some countries are deciding not to fluoridate their drinking supplies any more. Fluoride is harmful to your body and does not need to be in our water supply. I agree you need to replenish your body with a lot of water everyday. That is why my skin looks so good. Also if you find yourself with indigestion. Drink several glasses of water and you will not have your indigestion any more. A good book to read, "Water: for Health, for Healing, for Life", by F. Batmanghelidji, M.D.. Great article. You write so that the reader can easily understand what they are reading. I really like your articles. Thanks! Teresa

    Hi adrienne, I knew water had tremendous health benefits, but I never knew that to this extent till I came across this hub. One particular one that really interests me is on the issue of dehydrating the brain by not drinking sufficient water, which results in 'forgetfulness' ha ha, maybe this was why I misplaced my keys the other day, cos I was really thirsty. But after rehydrating myself by drinking water, everything came into perspective and that moment I remembered where I left it. Thanks once more for sharing.

    A safe drinking water is always very helpful in making people fresh, and healthy. Many doctors suggest safe drinking water to avoid over weight. But there are so many water filters around that people got confused. So, always research before buying any water purifier.

    Great reminders! I love my distilled water, I have been making mine at home with my countertop distiller from Waterwise. It is very easy to operate and much less expensive than bottled water. I drink a lot of water and my skin is amazing.
