Here’s What Drinking Enough Water Does
Last week I donated blood for the very first time. Beforehand, I researched the best ways to prepare the body, and staying hydrated was at the top of the list. Therefore, I drank tons of water the day before and the day of my donation. The following 36 hours after donating, I chugged bottles of water – more than I ever have before. After a few days, I began to notice how much my skin had cleared up. I immediately attributed this win to the fact that I had been drinking a crazy amount of water that week. Well, maybe not a crazy amount but definitely a lot. Frankly, I don’t usually drink enough water, and you may not either! Keep reading to learn a few reasons you should drink more water!
Water contributes to clear skin!
According to the NCBI, a study revealed that drinking more water hydrates the skin. Hydrated skin equals clearer skin. Healthline also discusses the role water plays in immune function. A healthy immune system helps protect the body against infections which in turn can prevent acne. Evidence suggests that water plays a role in supporting the body’s ability to fight infections.
BOOSTit, our solution for immune support contains minerals such as Vitamin C, Echinacea, and L-Glutamine. These minerals support gut health and white blood cell production to give your immune system the strength it needs to fight off bacteria like p. acnes.
Promotes weight loss
Water gets rid of by-products of fat, reduces hunger, and aids in digestion according to Access Health Louisiana. Many times, when you feel hungry, you may actually be thirsty instead. Therefore, drinking a glass of water before you eat a snack or meal can help reduce the amount of food you consume.
Make sure to end a long, tiring day with a large glass of water. Dehydration could be a significant contributing factor to your fatigue.
