From severe chronic constipation to bad acne, there are so many ailments that can be worked on by increasing your daily intake of water.
Weight loss: The many ways how drinking water can help you
Shedding the spotlight on drinking sufficient water on an everyday basis is celeb nutritionist Pooja Makhija on Instagram. In the Reels, she tells that drinking sufficient water is the one simple solution to four bothersome problems like severe and chronic constipation, uncontrolled acne, muscular cramps (especially the ones which hit in the middle of the night), and dull skin despite using some of the best skincare treatments available.
It may sound hard to believe but yes, staying well-hydrated and drinking the liquid gold called water can be helpful for addressing these concerns which interfere with your day-to-day functioning.
"Water is the magical, colourless, tasteless and odourless liquid. Have 2.5 to 3 litres of water every day and note the difference in your health," says Makhija.
Here are some more concerns that upping your water intake can address:
- Premature ageing of skin
- Hair fall
- Puffy eyes
- Weight gain
Yes, you read that write. Drinking water can also prevent weight gain. At times when you feel hungry shortly after having a full meal, it may be because you're thirsty. The brain confuses that thirst to be hunger and makes you go for a quick snack, and even a dessert. If you feel that you feel hungry after half an hour or earlier of having a full meal, then grab a glass of water first.
Now imagine the amount of calories you're not taking by just drinking a glass of water instead of that snack.
Water cleanses the system and helps in detoxing your body naturally. To check if you're sufficiently hydrated, see if the colour of your pee is close to clear and not pale or yellow.
Now go grab another glass of water!
