Water is the number one component in your body, and your body requires water to function properly. Water reduces fatigue, fights illness and headaches, carries nutrients through your body, reduces acne, and much more. Water can also act as an appetite suppressant. If you are trying to lose weight, drink 12-20 ounces of water before each meal. You will feel fuller and eat less.
If water isn’t your beverage of choice, spice it up with one or more of the following natural flavors.
- Cinnamon sticks and apple slices
- Limes and/or strawberries
- Mint leaves, fresh grated ginger, lemon and cucumber
Aim for 64 ounces of water per day for better health.
