What if I told you there was a beverage with major health benefits that’s available 24 hours a day, seven days a week – and you don’t even have to leave the house to get it? And better than that, it’s free.
I know, I know, what is this magical and surprisingly affordable beverage? It’s water, duh. Pure, clean, life-giving H20.
I think Zoolander put it best when he said “moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty”, but upping your daily water intake is not just good for your looks, it’s also important for your health and wellbeing.
The human body can last weeks without food, but without water? We wouldn’t even last a couple of days.
In the Mamamia Sydney office, we’re lucky enough to have a Zip HydroTap, with instant chilled and boiling water.
The company believes in “the Zip effect” – that is, that staying hydrated is the key to better overall health and well being.
Here are just a few of the benefits you’ll get from drinking plenty of clean water every day. Your body will thank you for it. So drink up.
1. Mental alertness.
Feeling a little foggy? Maybe you haven’t had enough water today. Dehydration can cause numerous symptoms include problems with focus, memory, fatigue, headaches, sleep issues, anger – even depression. Boost your productivity by upping your number of glasses per day. It’s just good thinking.
2. Clearing toxins.
Your kidneys need plenty of water to filter the toxins out of your body. Staying hydrated will help prevent urinary tract infections and kidney stones. Phew. Nobody wants to let their kidneys down, do they?
