Water is one of the most effective ways to combat excess weight. And this is due to several reasons.

And this is even despite the fact that a lot is known about the usefulness and positive effect of water on the human body. However, most often we hear just something ephemeral: "Drinking water is useful", "Drink water", "Water cleanses the body", etc.

To begin with, water is water. Is it funny? Did you know that, for example, coffee, tea, juices, fruit drinks and other drinks are food? It sounds a little strange, but it really is. Based on this, we can say that water has such properties that no other drink on the planet possesses.
The human digestive system consumes a huge amount of fluid. This is required in order for food to be digested properly. In addition to this, water normalizes acidity.
Everyone has probably heard about this, but it will not be superfluous to repeat it. Drinking water helps to remove harmful substances and toxins from the body. The lion's share of toxins accumulates between cells - in the intercellular fluid. Water cleans both the intercellular fluid and the cells themselves.
7. Water cleanses the body
People who consume water in the quantities necessary for the body are 45% less at risk of cancer of the digestive system than people who do not drink water or drink little. Along with drinking water, the risk of bladder and breast cancer also decreases.

If a person plays sports, he simply cannot afford to dehydrate the body.

In addition to all of the above, we want to give some more valuable recommendations on the topic of drinking water.
The current norms of fluid intake are relative, and also differ depending on how old a person is, a man or a woman, how he feels, how physically active, whether he has any diseases and in what area he lives.
