Water & health go hand in hand. Apart from the air we breathe, water is the most essential natural resource necessary for life. This is because you can not survive longer than a few days without water. It makes up nearly two-thirds of the average adult human body and it is essential for a properly functioning body. So it is of no surprise that water has numerous health benefits. This includes everything from helping to remove waste products through urine and sweat to lubricating your joints. There is also a lot of evidence to suggest that it can help make your skin look better. Water is the best choice for hydration. It is better than sugary drinks, sodas and so-called "sports drinks". This is because it does not have any calories and typically doesn't cost any money. However, a lot of people find water too boring to drink. If you find it difficult to drink plain old regular water then you can consider other low to no sugar options. This includes things like milk, herbal teas and fruit infused water as these are good trade-offs.  Because these options do not contain calories (from sugar), they are less likely to damage your teeth or lead to weight gain. Learn the important facts about water that most people don't know about. For instance, what happens if you drink too much water? Is distilled water good for you?
