Drinking water on a daily basis is as important as eating. Not new to you? Great!

  1. Our medical experts have picked the TOP 10 (there are more) reasons drinking water is vital for women.
  2. It prevents dehydration. Dehydration is a dangerous condition to your health when your body doesn’t have enough fluid, which leads to the dysfunction of certain organs and systems.
  3. It helps you to deal with menstrual cramps
  4. It is vital when you’re pregnant, and not having enough liquid in your body during pregnancy may even result in preterm birth.
  5. Joint lubrication. Cartilage, found in joints and the disks of the spine, contains around 80% water. To avoid dehydration-related joint pain, you should drink enough water to keep the joints' shock-absorbing ability at the necessary level.
  6. Body temperature regulation. Water helps to regulate your temperature by forming sweat, which consists of water and the body’s minerals. Sweating helps your body stay cool.
  7. Moisture. Water helps to form saliva and mucus. This prevents friction and damage to your mouth’s mucous membrane.
  8. It makes the digestive system work properly. Water is needed to process foods in a timely manner and to avoid constipation and an overly acidic stomach.  
  9. Proper functioning of the kidneys. The kidneys extract waste from your blood in the form of urine, and balance your bodily fluids. A lack of water can lead to kidney stones and other problems.
  10. Good for your blood. First of all, it helps maintain blood pressure. Second, it delivers oxygen and other nutrients throughout the body.  
  11. Your skin. Dehydrated skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders, infections, and wrinkling.
