Most people don’t drink enough water throughout the day, myself included! This is a shame because drinking water throughout the day provides so many great and necessary benefits to our body, including to our kidneys. Water is necessary for our cells to transport toxins into the bloodstream. “The kidneys then use water to filter these toxins out and to create the urine that transports them out of the body,” writes the Medical News Today.
If you find that you’re feeling thirsty throughout the day, reach for water before anything else. StyleCraze advises women to drink 8 glasses of water a day, and 13 for men! If you can’t consume that many, aim for at least a few glasses to keep your mind and body healthy. It’s important to note that the amount of water needed throughout the day also depends on your level of activity and the condition of your kidneys. Talk to your doctor to find out more.
