The Importance of Water

Tip of the Week…

This week we’re focusing on the importance of water in diet. Since 70% of our body is made up of water it is crucial to drink between 2-3litres daily. Water flushes toxins from our body, assists in poor digestion, combats headaches and is great for constipation. It improves our cognitive performance and our ability to concentrate. From a weight management perspective it is an essential component as it pushes sugars from the body quicker and is a great filler for those times when we crave foods. Also, believe it or not we occasionally mistake hunger for thirst.

Dr Smith says,
As a facial and aesthetic surgeon I cannot stress the importance of water in our diet enough. Not only from a health perspective, but externally also as its effect on our skin can be dramatic. It plumps up and nourishes skin and helps to efficiently regenerate skin cells.”
