Leave the Water Running for Better Health

By Tom Herrin

Looking for that perfect thing to add to a diet for better health doesn't take much looking.  There are all kinds of things people can add to make life a little better.  The easy one is still the cheapest.  Water is something that everyone likely needs more of.  Some people may drink quite a bit of fluids, but a lot of the time it is in the form of soft drinks or some other type of beverage.  While those things can all be good, nothing can really replace water.  It has always been a basic necessity of life and still remains so.  The fact that so many other choices are available may sometimes cloud the picture.  Water makes life work.

Water Enables Performance

Anyone who has ever participated in any kind of physical activity is well aware of the need for water.  When people lose water through perspiration, it has a noticeable effect on the body.  It seems that a loss of as little as 2 percent of the body's water may cause some problems such as fatigue, confusion, etc.  Many times, athletes are known to lose as much as 10 percent of their body's water in a day of working out.  The results may be disastrous.  This is why so many coaches and trainers have spent considerable time and effort planning the best way to get water breaks.

It May Prevent or Lessen Headaches

While it may not be the case for all, some headaches may be the result of insufficient water.  Dehydration can creep up on people without their knowledge.  What many think of as simply being tired can be some kind of dehydration.  It can be dangerous in a hurry if left unchecked.  Drinking more water more often may be the key for some to prevent these types of headaches or making them go away sooner.

It May Help the Urinary Tract

Problems with the urinary tract seem to be on the rise for many of us.  As we age, we certainly tend to slip back a little on our efforts to stay healthy.  Drinking more water may help to flush materials out of the system that may otherwise contribute to the formation of kidney stones.  For those with small stones, drinking large amounts of water may help to move those out as well.  The bottom line is that these painful situations may be avoided if we just make a point of drinking more water more often.
