Drink Water for Good Health

Thirsty? Drink a glass of water.

I love the taste of a cool crisp clean tasting glass of water first thing in the morning before breakfast. It wakes me up and hydrates me for a few hours. Water is essential to health and life. Without it, we would not be able to survive. Water is so refreshing after a good long run in the morning. Water is great after a hot day at the beach. Water is just a great way for your skin and body to flush out toxins.

According to K. Ngo:

Here are 10 reasons why water is important.

1. Almost every cell in the body is made up with water
2. Water is the major part of the sweat, tears, and saliva
3. It is the biggest part of the blood and lymph systems, carrying food and oxygen to the cells and carrying away waste out of the body
4. It helps control blood pressure by balancing the electrolytes
5. Water flushes the kidneys to get rid of toxic substances in the body
6. Water helps moisten the eyes, mouth, and nasal passages
7. It regulates body temperature, keeps it cool when it is hot and insulates the body from cold
8. It is also a shock absorber to cushion the body's organs
9. It lubricates joints so you can move without pains
10. Good water can provide many of the trace minerals that the body needs
