But oddly enough, 1 in 10 Americans drink zero cups of water per day, a medical epidemiologist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And, those who don't drink any water are getting it from other sources such as food and coffee but warns this may not be enough.
Benefits of Drinking Water
- It balances body fluids. Essentially it keeps your body running like a well-oiled machine.
- It keeps skin looking healthy. Water moisturizes your skin and functions as a protective barrier to prevent excess fluid loss (think free anti-aging cream). In addition, it can keep your skin fresh and smooth.
- It boosts the immune system. Including ionized water in your daily intake can give your immune system a boost through added antioxidants, improve aerobic capacity, enhance energy levels and, through a patented technology that alters the molecular structure of water, hydrate your body more fully.
- It can help control calories. While drinking water may not be a weight-loss strategy, per se, substituting it for higher-calorie or sugar-filled beverages can help by removing by-products of fat, filling you up so you're not noshing, acts as a natural appetite suppressant, and raises your metabolism.
Robert Eakle, CEO of Alkame Water, agrees. "Without water, no living thing can survive," he says. "It affects every area of our lives and is an essential part of maintaining proper health."
Fact: Your body is composed of about 60 percent water. It performs vital functions such as protecting your organs and tissues, regulating your body temperature, and carrying nutrients and oxygen to your cells.
