The Importance of water in your diet
Water is essential in a human’s daily diet. Drinking water permits our body to flush out waste, protect human tissue and joints.
Water also supports digestion and helps boost the metabolism.
1. Start your day by Rehydrating
Our bodies lose so much water through breathing, sweating and urinating, therefore it is so important to refuel our bodies with water as soon as we wake up.
Other benefits to drinking water first thing in the morning include;
- Feeling more alert and awake
- Helps boost your metabolism and aids with weight loss, as water keeps you fuller for longer
- Improves mental performance
- Improves overall health and wellbeing
2. Eat your way to Hydration
If you struggle to drink water throughout the day there are other alternatives to help you increase your daily water intake.
Fruits high in water
- Watermelon can contain up to 91% water!!
Imagine combining all of the above fruits together…perfect fresh fruit juice combo.
In colder months you may find it harder to reach your daily water requirements.
