4 Lesser-Known Benefits of Drinking Water

Everyone knows that drinking water is important. It provides life-giving hydration and helps cells in the human body absorb nutrients and expel waste products. But did you know that water also offers other, less-touted benefits, too?

1. Water hydrates skin from within

Drinking water helps reduce dry skin. Better still, because it helps keep skin moisturized, water reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Not drinking enough will cause the body to retain it to conserve resources. And retention can lead to puffy skin and even bloating.

2. Water helps build muscle

Water carries oxygen to all cells in the body, including those belonging to muscles. Drinking water allows muscles to work harder and longer before they feel tired, which leads to enhanced overall strength.

3. Water increases cognitive function

The brain needs a lot of oxygen to function at optimum levels. Drinking eight to ten cups of water per day can improve levels of cognitive function by as much as 30%. It also ensures that the level of electrolytes remain high enough to allow nerves to effectively relay messages to and from the brain.

4. Water promotes healthy joint function

Joints need moisture to remain strong and flexible so movements are smooth and pain-free. Consuming water on a daily basis can keep joints strong, healthy and lubricated.

Pretty amazing, isn’t it? Water is truly a miracle of nature. And it also happens to be the most popular drink in the world.
