There Is No Need for a Drought in Health

By Tom Herrin

When people think about what it takes to enjoy the best of health, they probably try to make a list of exercises, practices, or foods.  All that may be good, but it can actually be much simpler.  Adding more water to whatever people are consuming is always a good thing.  It is certainly the most basic component needed for life.  It is unfortunate that as this society has progressed, many have come to see water as something that is primitive, and they seem to prefer other beverages instead.  It is true that there are some good choices available, but one should never avoid water completely.

Water May Affect the Brain's Ability to Work

It is amazing the way the body works.  When people have an insufficient amount of water, they may have a noticeable loss of some of their brain's abilities.  They may have some memory loss, confusion, and possibly some problems with processing.  It may also affect their energy level as seen by fatigue that may be evident when people have lost considerable water.  What they may see as simply being tired could be an indication that they have suffered from dehydration.  

Water May Affect Digestion

People may not realize that connection between water and the body's ability to digest food properly.  Many have issues relating to digestion.  Making certain they have enough water can help to maintain regularity and comfort.  Water can add bulk to food, making it easier to pass through the body.  This may be obvious to those who have had the feeling of trying to choke down food that was dry.  Drinking water regularly can simply keep things working as they were intended.

It May Help With Weight Management

For those of us who occasionally struggle with our weight, drinking more water can be one of the easiest ways to help.  Many times, when we are hungry, we are actually low on water.  Drinking more of it can help make us feel fuller.  Anytime I have decided that I needed to lose a little weight, I have tried to drink extra water before each meal as well as throughout the day.  One study indicated that those who drank a half-liter of water before meals lost more than 40 percent more weight.  Some studies have found that drinking this additional water can help increase metabolism.  It seems like a practice that can pay off big.
