The human body is approximately 60% water. It is in every cell of your body, facilitating the movement of nutrients into them and toxins out. It also helps carry electrical signals around the body, ensuring your body reacts as it’s supposed to. Interestingly, fat tissues can’t carry as much water as lean tissue. That means the more overweight you are the easier it is to become dehydrated!

Get Your Water Right
Drinking more water is generally considered a good thing. But, it’s advisable to invest in the best water coolers. You can use bottled water on the cooler or hook it up to the mains with a filter to ensure it’s clean and safe to drink.

One of the biggest issues with ageing is that your joints become stiffer. This is usually because the cartilage is wearing away. However, drinking more water, which is the primary ingredient in cartilage, will help it to last longer and improve your ease of movement. Regularly flushing joints also prevents inflammation and other issues, such as gout.

That’s a good enough reason to drink a few extra glasses of water a day.
