That you have to drink enough water every day - at least 1.5-2 liters per day - everyone knows. But where is all that drinking water actually good for? Is water healthy? Well, a list:
1. YOU RUN LESS RISK FOR HEALTH PROBLEMS
To start with the most important thing: drinking more water is linked to a reduced risk of kidney stones, heart attacks, and certain types of cancer.
2. YOUR COMBUSTION GOES ON A HIGHER BEACH
Research has shown that your basic metabolic rate (the calories you consume at rest) increases when your body is sufficiently hydrated.
3. YOU HAVE TO THINK HARD LESS THAN
In London, scientists discovered that - the horror - the brains of teenagers who did not shrink enough drunk. When they then had to solve a game they scored as well as their well-hydrated opponents, but it did cost more brain activity. When you drink enough, your brain will return to its normal size. Happy.
4. YOU EAT LESS
This study showed that the subjects who drank two glasses for each meal ate about 75 to 90 calories less than the other group. Cold or hot drinks in warm weather? Over a period of three months, the water drinkers lost an average of 1.5 kilos more than non-drinkers.
5. YOU WILL RECEIVE LESS RIPPELS
