Water: the Elixir for Healthy Living?

Fruits, vegetables, exercise, fresh air, adequate sleep, and plenty of water. They’re all good for healthy living, right? While fitting adequate exercise, sufficient sleep, and healthy foods into our daily routines can be challenging, nearly everyone has taken up the call to drink lots of water.

So, what’s the scoop on water? Why is it so important?

Some medical authorities say the widely cited rule about drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day is a guideline and is not based on scientific evidence.

But wait, health experts say. Don’t put down that water bottle yet.

“Think of water as a nutrient your body needs that is present in liquids, plain water, and foods,” said Joan Koelemay, a dietitian for the Beverage Institute.

Here are 5 reasons to make sure you’re getting your daily water intake:

1. Drinking water maintains your body fluid balance. Your body is 60% water. “Through the posterior pituitary gland, your brain communicates with your kidneys and tells it how much water to excrete as urine or hold onto for reserves,” said Dr. Steven Guest, a nephrologist with Oakland, California-based Kaiser Permanente.

2. Drinking water may help you lose weight. Compared to other drinks, water has no calories.

3. Drinking water gives your muscles energy. “When muscle cells don’t have adequate fluids, they don’t work as well and performance can suffer,” Guest said.

4. Drinking water improves the look of your skin. “Dehydration makes your skin look more dry and wrinkled, which can be improved with proper hydration,” said Dr. Kenneth Ellner, an Atlanta dermatologist.

5. Drinking water helps your kidneys. “Your kidneys do an amazing job of cleansing and ridding your body of toxins as long as your intake of fluids is adequate,” Guest said.
