Humans are made up of at least 60% water, which is why we naturally crave it to keep us moving. Over the years of fine tuning our existence, we’ve learned that drinking a gallon of water a day is one of the most beneficial things we can do to ensure we’re replenishing all the nutrients and vitamins we burn. Initially, you might feel a bit bloated and have to pee a lot, but it’s a small price to pay for the health advantages you gain.
Eating Less + Weight Loss
Consuming water naturally fills us up and helps our bodies burn fat. When you don’t drink enough each day, you crave food more and your metabolism slows down. Then you’re caught in the vicious cycle of snacking and storing fat.
A gallon seems like a lot, but if you’re just getting started, try drinking our 1 Liter Mountain Valley Spring Water. Not only will you get the appetite suppressant value, but you’ll also pick up a few extra nutrients and vitamins, such as: calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
Better Mobility + More Energy
If you’re drinking a gallon a day, or anywhere close to it, you’ll almost immediately notice that your body starts functioning to support the organic weight loss we just mentioned. When you throw in a steady work out regimen, you can expect more out of your gym time. Why?
Water is basically a lubricant for us, ensuring our muscles and joints are moving like a well-oiled locomotive. Plus it aids in the transporting of oxygen and glucose, making sure of their full sweeping distribution throughout the body. If you want even more, consider drinking water with a higher alkalinity level. For instance, ours has 7.8 pH, which can definitely charge up your energy levels a bit more than tap.
Clear Skin + No Bags
This might be the most obvious benefit on our short list. Water flushes out all those sneaky hidden toxins, and it balances your sodium levels. This means you’ll be less susceptible to oils and dirt hanging out in those beautiful pores, and because sodium tends to pool, you’ll likely see those under-eye bags disappear.
