The Health Benefits of Staying Hydrated

Living a healthy lifestyle consists of a number of different facets such as getting enough exercise and watching your diet, but one thing that is often overlooked is simply drinking more water!

Our bodies consist of between 57-60% water, so keeping this level of moisture topped up is extremely important. Despite this, many people don’t drink enough of it which can lead to a number of health complications.

Many of the tips below are especially relevant for people living an active lifestyle, due to the fact that being properly hydrated helps to improve sporting performance and aids muscle recovery after exercise. It’s also worth noting that physical exercise is one of the factors that can lead to dehydration, so people who play lots of sport need to be especially careful to ensure that their levels of fluid intake match the amount lost via sweat.
