The magical cure-all treatment: Water

Stop searching for those fantasy products that are advertised to help you lose that extra weight, give you glowing skin, and boost your brain capacity. The answer has been right under your nose this whole time, water! Water is not only so easy to access, but it does wonders for your body.

For starters, (as many of you already know) water keeps the skin hydrated, giving it that healthy glow we all strive for.  Staying hydrated also gives your skin flexible and elastic qualities –to help nix dry skin that leads to wrinkles!

Believe it or not, body fat will decrease just by drinking water! I know, too good to be true right? Amazingly, this simple liquid helps speed up your metabolism and eliminate fats.  Without water, fat deposits all throughout the body will increase.

Protein isn’t the only thing you should be consuming post-workouts–make sure you drink lots of water too! This will not only rehydrate your body from all the liquid lost through sweat, but it will also keep your muscles toned and firm because water is the main component of muscle tissue.

Since our organs are made up of mostly water, it’s so important to stay hydrated so they can work to their potential.  This is why water makes the brain work at full capacity. Do you ever get headaches and feel tired when you’re dehydrated? It’s your brain telling you it needs water!

Don’t worry, you don’t need to carry a water bottle around with you all day. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, they’re made of mostly water too!
