Scientists reveal: That's what happen to your body when you replace all the drinks with water
We all know that beer, wine and carbonated beverages are not as healthy as water.
And yet, many people prefer Coca-Cola over water.. In fact, people in the Western world drink an average of 143 liters of sugary drinks a year. It's quite a bit!
So what happens to your body if you replace these sugary drinks with water? The truth is that a lot, it turns out.
1. Your metabolism will improve
If you drink a glass of water on an empty stomach as soon as you wake up in the morning, your metabolism will increase by up to 30% within an hour.
Not bad, right? A 30% increase in metabolism equals 25 calories, according to this study.
If you want to spice things up, add lemon to a glass of water - it will add variety to your daily routine and help you with digestion.
2. You will live more years
A glass of water a day helps you live longer, according to a new study from Lund University in Sweden. This is because an extra glass of water every day reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, kidney failure and type 2 diabetes.
3. Your kidneys will function better
Problems with kidney stones? Water can help. There are studies that show that drinking plenty of water can prevent recurring problems in people who have previously suffered from kidney stones.
4. Your brain will function better
The brain is made up of about 85% water, so 'feeding' it in fluids is definitely recommended.
And because water is one of the fuels in the body's engine, it can improve the ability to concentrate.
Other studies have found that even minor dehydration can affect the mood, memory and cognitive function.
5. You'll feel full of energy
Water is the best thing you can drink to fight dehydration. Losing only 2% of the water in the body can affect physical performance.
If you think about the fact that athletes lose 6-10 percent of their water content while they sweat, you can see how important it is to fill the body with water.
6. You will lose weight easier and faster
Drinking plenty of water can also help you lose weight.
This is because water makes you feel full and satiety and improves your metabolism.
You may not be able to go on a water-only diet - but it's definitely a good way to start.
7. Bonus: You will save a lot of money!
Buying soft drinks, beer, wine and juices is much more expensive than turning the kitchen tap. Chances are the water in your home is safe to drink (especially if you have one filter or another).
