Well….. loads of reasons!
If we set aside the fact that it helps regulate body temperature, helps excrete waste, improves physical performance, lubricates and cushions joints, assists in weights loss, increases your metabolism, makes you more alert and helps you function, reduces anxiety and fatigue, promotes collagen production to keep your skin healthy (and breathe)……..
…….. it is also essential for the absorption, transportation and utilisation of both Vitamin B complex and Vitamin C.
‘BUT HOW!!!!’? (Not how do you drink more water, how does it work?) .
Because your body can’t store vitamin B complex and Vitamin C in great quantities within your body, you need to make sure you are taking in enough of these daily, and due to both vitamin B complex and vitamin C needing water, you need to make sure you are drinking enough.
Vitamin B Complex
- Helps maintain Iron levels in your blood
- Plays a vital role in metabolism
- Maintains fatality and normal growth
- Helps produce cholesterol
- Helps prevent fatigue
- Helps promote healthy nerves, skin, hair, eyes, liver and muscle tone
‘Where can I get hold of some of these awesome vitamin bad boys’???
You’ve guessed it, fresh fruit, vegetables, raw nuts, seafood, whole unrefined grains and legumes.
(Brown rice, barley, fish, milk, cheese, beans, lentils, sunflower seeds, almonds, broccoli, spinach, citrus fruits, avocados and bananas are a few examples)
There are 8 B vitamins and I will go into each one in more depth as I publish more posts so look out for these.
- Aids tissue growth and repair
- Supports adrenal gland function
- Help the healing of wounds
- Is a powerful antioxidant
- Supports lactation
‘Where has this Vitamin C been my whole life?’
Hiding in fresh fruit and vegetables where nobody would think to look, that’s where!
(Broccoli, brussels, cauliflower, green and red peppers, sweet and white potatoes, spinach, leafy greens and tomatoes, oranges and grapefruits)
So you’ve gone to all the effort of eating this healthy food and had a day off from McDonalds and KFC, but you haven’t drunk enough water , it was all in vain.
Get the most out of your efforts to eat a healthy diet.
