More than two-thirds of your body weight is water.  Without adequate water  your body’s biochemical and electrical processes  begin to break down.  The list of reasons your body needs water is as plentiful  as the functions in your body, so due to space limitations, here are 10 good  reasons to drink more water:

1.  Your blood is over 80 percent water and needs water to make healthy new  blood cells.

2.  Your bones are over 50 percent water and, you guessed it, need water to  make healthy new bone cells.

3.  Drinking more water actually helps lessen pain in your body by getting  your lymphatic system moving.  The lymphatic system is a network of nodes,  tubes, vessels, and fluid that move waste out of your tissues.  It requires  water to function properly.

4. Water helps to eliminate wastes and toxins from your body through the lymphatic system, kidneys, and intestines.

5. Water lubricates your joints and helps reduce joint pain and protect  against wear and tear

6.  Water regulates your metabolism so if you’re overweight chances are you may need  more water.

7.  Water balances body temperature.

8.  Water helps to ensure adequate electrical functioning so your brain and  nervous system function properly.  Your brain and nervous system send out  electrical signals to function properly. Researchers estimate that your brain  gives off about the same amount of electricity as a 60 watt light bulb. So,  there’s some truth to the image of a light bulb going on when someone has a good  idea.

9.  Water alleviates dehydration (and I’ve already mentioned that most people  are chronically dehydrated).

10. Every cell and organ in your body requires adequate water to function  properly.

So, one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your health is to start  drinking more pure water every day.
