Helps Aid in Weightloss

First – plain water has ZERO calories, and no additives to boot. Sure, water is it is fairly boring when consumed by itself. If it is too boring fro your tastes, try adding lemon or mint. Not only will it ad flavor, but also the benefits of citric acid of the lemon and natural taste of the mint leaf. If you find yourself craving something specific during the day, it could be your bodies way of telling you it’s thirsty. So before you reach for that candy bar, refill your water bottle and see how you feel!

Can Help Prevent Different Forms of Cancer

You’ll feel better knowing this: Water can protect against certain types of cancer. Being that it aids in digestion and moving things along, it is great in preventing against things like bowel and colon cancers. Studies have shown that those who stay hydrated on a more regular basis are at a lower risk to these forms of cancer.

Water and Mood

According to Mens Health, a study conducted in France shows that increased water consumption lead to better moods. “Not only were people getting their thirst quenched, but also participants reported feeling less fatigued, less confused, and more satisfied overall with their mood at the end of the study.” And, on the flip-side, lowering water consumption lead to worse moods in those who normally drink large amounts of water.

Hydration Prevents Headaches

Dehydration is the loss of water and electrolytes, such as sodium, chloride and potassium, which are necessary for the body to function. When your body is lacking these essential nutrients, things can get wonky. If you find yourself suffering from frequent headaches due to low water consumption, drink more water! Drink 16 to 32 ounces and in an hour or two you should start to feel better.

Preventing Excessive Sweating

Cold water helps regulate your body temperature and, in turn, helps keep your sweat cells under control. So if you’re prone to excessive sweating, or are a gym rat, be sure to keep cold water handy. Not only will you be more comfortable, but you’ll be doing your body more good. Something less comfortable when it comes to ice water, but equally beneficial, are ice-cold showers. When you hop into a cold shower, your metabolism increases by up to 550% of its resting level, burning calories in the process.

So be sure to find the Team Player in your office! Chances are their encouraging team work, monitoring hydration in company exercise classes, and just being an overall asset to the office!
