Top 10 Benefits of Drinking More Water

Staying hydrated, especially during the summer, is so important to a healthy lifestyle. Our bodies are made up of almost 70% water. When water is not present, the body starts to break down and problems begin to happen. Most people don’t realize they are dehydrated! Many times, the feeling of thirst is actually mistaken for a feeling of hunger. With readily available medications, it is easy to want them to help with some common complaints such as muscle soreness, weight loss, headaches- when in reality something so simple as water can cure so much!
