If you’ve never taken the time to appreciate all the health benefits of water, now may just be the right time to do that. Water is the source of life and one of the best things you can drink to quench your thirst.
Making sure to drink enough water every day ensures proper functioning of your metabolism, gives you better skin complexion and boosts energy levels. With no calories, water is also an excellent drink for dieters. In fact one study showed that drinking two 8-ounce cups of water before every meal can improve weight loss.
“Over the course of 12 weeks, dieters who drank water before meals, three times per day, lost about 5 pounds more than dieters who did not increase their water intake.”
You may know that water is important for your overall health, but do you know the exact amount of water you should be drinking every day?
Every process in your body depends on your water intake. Water makes you beautiful, full of energy, and healthy. But, some people believe that the same applies to every other thing. Wrong. Nothing can replace water, not even the healthiest teas or juices.
Insufficient water intake leads to severe health problems, and let’s be honest, constipation and low blood pressure are the worst of them all. Boost your water intake today, and you’ll be amazed of the way your body feels.

If you are not too keen on keeping tabs on how much water you drink, you can do the following.
Drink 2 cups of water (16 ounces) before every meal. This gives you 48 ounces a day.
Every morning when you get up drink a glass of water.
Drink another glass 2 hours before going to bed.
Carry your own non-plastic water bottle.
Doing these things will make sure that you get plenty of water each day.
