Why you need to drink a lot of water

Depending on the age, fat, etc. the human body consists of 43%-75% water. (If to exclude from the body fat, the human body consists of water by 72%.) People may be able to accommodate from 4 to 8 weeks without food, but without water our body will die in 10 days (given room temperature).

Modern fashionable women spend fortunes on cosmetics for skin care face and body, while completely ignoring the cheapest and most effective remedy is water. Daily consumption of drinking water leads to improved cell activity, moisturizes the skin from within, improves its elasticity, prevents dryness.

A recent study showed that people who drink at least 5 glasses of plain water a day reduced the risk of heart attacks compared to those who drank 2 glasses of water a day.

Water not only prevents constipation, but also involved in the process of digestion and the formation of chemical reactions of this process. Carbohydrates and proteins that our body uses as food, digested and transferred into the circulatory system with water. Using the same water wastes removed from the body (urination).

As mentioned above, dehydration leads to slower protein synthesis, which is essential for the formation of muscles. The formation of new muscle tissue energy. The less calories will burn and turn into energy to create new muscle, the more calories you "will settle" in the body in the form of extra fat.

Water is an important part of our lives. Try to drink more water before, during and after exercise, on hot days with low humidity, while at high altitude above sea level, experiencing nausea, diarrhea, with an increase in body temperature. However, it is important to remember that the body is able to absorb about 120 ounces of water every 10 minutes, so don't overdo it.
