It takes approx. 2 minutes to read this article

There is no need to convince anyone that drinking water is important. Adequate hydration guarantees not only the proper functioning of the body, but also a beautiful appearance. But are you sure you are providing your body with the right amount of H2O?

Did you know that an adult body consists of 70% water? And it is not a coincidence as this fluid performs many important functions in our body, including but not limited to: regulating body temperature, transporting nutrients, enabling metabolism or maintaining water management at an appropriate level. Knowing these facts, it is hardly surprising that even small deficiencies of H2O in the body can lead to unpleasant consequences. Therefore, it is worth remembering that every day we should drink at least 1.5 liters of this liquid. And what will happen if we do not do it? Our body will start sending warning signs.

Deficiency of water in the body – how to recognize it?

  1. Strong headaches
    If you often get migraines, ask yourself if you are drinking enough water per day. Do you have doubts? Instead of taking painkillers, reach for a glass more often and see if the pain goes away.
  2. Concentration and memory disorders
    If you have trouble concentrating during work or study, drink more water. We guarantee that such a “nourished” brain will thank you with fruitful activity.
  3. Fatigue and irritability
    Yes, yes, before you start wondering what’s wrong with your body, or blaming it on the weather, make sure you drink enough water throughout the day.
  4. Digestive Problems
    As we mentioned earlier, water in the body enables metabolic processes. So if you feel that water is accumulating in your body, or if you want to lose a few extra pounds, reach for H2O more often.
  5. Dry skin and dark coloured urine
    Cellulite, dry skin, dark circles under your eyes, and dark urine are all signs that you are not drinking enough water. Of course, to get rid of orange peel or blue eyes, proper hydration is not enough, but know that it is the key to looking beautiful.

PS. Did you know that thirst can sometimes be mistaken for hunger? So, if you regularly provide your body with water, you will probably reach for snacks less often!
