Here Are 5 Important Reasons to Drink Water for the Health of Your Aging Body

People seem to carry water bottles and drink water everywhere they go to remain hydrated. When your water intake is less than your water output, you become dehydrated. However, dehydration is a common problem in warmer climates, during strenuous exercises, high altitudes, and with older adults. Dehydration is a severe condition leading to heat stokes, sudden death, constipation, mood swings, kidney stones, and many more severe health issues. The benefits of drinking enough water are terrific, and you can’t perform well without it.

Furthermore, if you feel frequent symptoms like digestive problems, headache, fatigue, and obesity, in such conditions, your body may be crying out for more water.

Why You Need to Drink Water?

65% of our body is made of water. We are losing it through sweating, breathing, urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, causing unclear thinking, mood swings, kidney stones, and constipation. Although water is a calorie-free, inexpensive, and readily available drink to stay healthy and hydrated, many older folks are not getting enough it.

Benefits of Water for Your Aging Body

Water is a building block for a healthy body that reduces the possibility of cramping, fuels your muscles, and transports more nutrients throughout your body.

Let’s talk about the key benefits of drinking water for your aging body.

1. Accelerate brain functioning

Drinking more water helps you in concentration and cognition by balancing your mood and emotions. Enough water will improve blood and oxygen flow towards the brain, relieve headaches, and reduce stress. Our muscles contain 80% water that we lose through challenging exercise, so drinking water reduces oxidative stress.

2. Flushes toxins from the body

Kidney and livers use water to flush out toxins and harmful chemicals from our bodies. In dehydration, your kidney doesn’t have enough water to perform its job correctly, causing kidney stones and server problems. Also, water is required to remove waste products through sweating. In hydrated conditions, the high volume of urine passes through the kidney and dilutes mineral concentration, so they are less likely to crystalline and form stones.

3. Lubricates the joints

Water helps keep your joints flexible as the synovial fluid that lubricates your joints mainly contains 80% water. The synovial fluid reduces the friction between joints and maintains healthy tissues. In dehydration, joints will lose their shock-absorbing abilities causing joint pain.

4. Weight loss

As we get older, losing weight becomes more challenging. Water helps to lose weight if you consume it instead of sodas and sweet drinks. Also, preloading before a meal can help prevent overeating by creating a sense of fullness. Drinking plenty of water will boost your metabolic rates and increasing the number of calories burn. However, drinking water half an hour before a meal is adequate to intake fewer calories.

5. Provides soft, glowing, and smooth skin

Our skin cells are comprised of water, and without water, they can’t perform their function correctly. Dull, dry, and flaky skin is a sign of water deficiency that is more prone to wrinkling. Drinking water is a natural anti-aging treatment that moisturizes your skin and keeps it fresh, glowing, and smooth. Plus, water removes toxins from our skin and improves our skin complexion.

Key Takeaways

  1. Although water is the most vital thing for us, most of us do not drink enough water daily.
  2. Water is life and the solution is to drink more water
