If most of what you’re drinking every day isn’t plain water (think soda, coffee drinks, sports drinks, and juices), you’re probably overloading on added calories and sugar.
Water, on the other hand, goes a long way in boosting health. Every cell in your body needs it to work properly. Water also helps your digestion.
Trade sugary drinks for water. Aim for about six to eight glasses a day. To help reach that goal, start and end your day with a tall glass of water and keep a water bottle with you during the day.
Need more flavor? Drop a slice of lemon or lime into your glass.
If you want a warm drink then fresh-brewing tea is a great choice.
The way to get the most antioxidants from your tea is knowing how long to steep the tea. It is an important part of the process. Three to five minutes is the recommended amount of time for maximizing the benefits.
Water is still your best choice for the entire day. Water keeps your kidneys functioning properly and thus keeping your other organs functioning at 100% as well. It also aids in weight loss. Studies show that individuals who drink 90-100 ounces of water a day will lose weight quicker. The best way is to have a drink container that you can measure the amount of ounces and keep track of how much you have consumed in a day.
Keep your water intake going to better health.
