The body – every molecular cell, tissue and organ – depends on water to stay alive and functioning well, in good health.
If water is the only liquid you consume – without juices, teas, coffees or sodas – many things can happen to the body. And all of them are very positive.
See what changes when you drink only water for 30 days, without changing your diet or exercise routine.
1. Your creativity and performance will be boosted
Drinking only water for 30 days makes the brain react faster. As this organ needs tons of oxygen to operate efficiently, and water is one of the big sources, your intellectual strength will be boosted. It helps you think better and focus more, as well as making you sharper, smarter and faster.
2. You will age slower than other people
Water helps to slow down the aging process, keeping the skin properly hydrated, healthy, soft, glowing, youthful and wrinkle-free. This also helps maintain muscle tone.
3. Your immunity will be strengthened
A Slovak proverb says that “pure water is the first and most important medicine in the world”. And that’s no exaggeration! Water acts as a catalyst for the renewal of the best bodily functions, especially the liver and kidneys, organs that eliminate toxic substances, waste and salt from your blood.
4. You will have a stronger heart
Water lessens the threat of a heart attack by preventing the blood from thickening and lowering blood pressure. A glass of water an hour before bedtime is recommended to prevent a heart attack or stroke, because it makes it easier for the heart to send freshly oxygenated blood to the organs.
5. Your bones will be strengthened
Water helps rebuild cartilage so joints can move smoothly, reducing joint damage from strain. Studies show that joint flexibility improves with adequate water intake.
6. You will lose fat
By drinking only water for 30 days, the body removes toxins that are harmful to the functioning of vital organs, which makes the body clean and helps to reduce abdominal fat. Drinking a glass or two of water before a meal can help you eat less. Consuming water at regular intervals also helps with weight management.
7. Your metabolism will work better
Studies suggest that drinking plenty of water every day stimulates metabolism, which is more dynamic, regardless of diet. This mainly happens when water is consumed in the morning.
All these benefits show that drinking water is extremely necessary for the body. Even if it is not the only liquid ingested, as it is not an easy task to take only water, it is worth making an effort to increase consumption and make it regular.
