Being well hydrated removes toxins, and cushions joints. But, what else?

Hydration Enhances Metabolism

Trying to lose weight?

Drinking water can boost your body’s ability to burn fat. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that drinking water (about 17oz) increases metabolic rate by 30 percent in healthy men and women. The boost occurred within 10 minutes but reached a maximum 30-40 minutes after drinking.

Studies also suggest that drinking one or two glasses of water before a meal can fill you up so you naturally eat less, says Andrea N. Giancoli, MPH, RD spokesperson for The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Plus, even mild dehydration will slow down metabolism by as much as 3 percent. (source)

Not drinking enough water, exercising and drinking alcohol depletes electrolytes and can cause dehydration.
Even when you drink plenty of plain water, if electrolytes aren’t replenished, you may still be dehydrated.
