Water promotes weight loss: When we drink water, it goes into our stomach. There it washes out the old mucous and used up salt from the last meal. Once in the gut, water is absorbed into the body, goes through the circulatory system and once back to the stomach, it creates a new mucous lining for the stomach to receive the next meal. It also takes the salt to produce on demand, a fresh batch of chemicals needed for digestion. Now, when you eat, your stomach is ready for food. You digest food better. You quickly attain satiation. By drinking water regularly, your stomach is ready to take appropriate amount of food. This way you do not overeat & it's the easiest way to loose weight!
Improves Skin: One of the tests of hydration of our body is the skin turgor test. Pinch a little skin on the back of your hand. If it stays tented, you will be told you are dehydrated by your doctor. Properly hydrated skin is healthy skin. You will look younger and more beautiful.
