You might have grown up hearing that you should drink about 8 glasses of water a day. But how important is it really? In Singapore, the water is clean enough that you could drink tap water without worry. That means you can drink water freely all day. So should you do it? Here, then, are some of the important benefits of drinking enough water daily.

1. The brain needs water

Brain function is strongly affected by our hydration. This is simply because just like every organ in the body, our brain needs water to function well. Mild dehydration, for example, has actually been found to impair memory and brain performance. If we are dehydrated for a longer time, it can be severely detrimental to our thinking and reasoning.

2. Our bodily fluids depend on it

Digestion, circulation, distribution of nutrients, and all other bodily processes need water to function effectively. That is because all of these rely on our body fluids to do their work effectively. Also, it’s not just our internal organs that need water, even our skin and our eyes benefit from being hydrated. This is also why our brain tells us we are thirsty. To let us know that the body is running out of water.

3. Improve physical performance

Staying hydrated can clearly improve physical performance. Why do you think you get thirsty even if you do just jog for a while? When we lose too much water through sweat during physical activities, our muscle tissues get deprived of oxygen and end up losing energy. Hence, physical performance becomes limited. So, always remember to drink enough water before, during, and after exercise or any physical activity.

4. Water cleanses the body

In the present day, much of the food we consume is high in sodium. The recommended daily intake is only 1500mg-2300mg but on average, we ingest 3400 mg. This is mainly because of fast food and processed food like hotdogs and ham. When we consume too much sodium, our body won’t be able to flush everything out and they become toxins that are harmful to the body. In this case, water is important because it improves circulation and helps flush out all these excess toxins. Drinking enough helps cleanse the body thoroughly.

5. It can help with weight loss

Simply put, you should drink a lot of water before every meal to help reduce your food intake if you want to lose weight. Many people, when they hit the gym trying to lose weight, drink sports drinks instead of water. Because sports drinks are relatively high in sugar, it can limit your weight loss efforts in some ways. The logic behind water helping with weight loss is also simple and really obvious. As mentioned above, by drinking water, you won’t be hungry often so you’ll reduce your food intake.
