It is recommended to drink about 2 liters of water daily to stay healthy and especially to stay hydrated. But consuming this amount of water per day still does not seem obvious to some people. The reasons remain diverse and varied (a busy schedule, something else to drink: like coffee or cocktails and the fear of having to spend half the day in the toilet). However, it should be remembered that drinking water throughout the day allows you to: cleanse the body while eliminating toxins, regulate your satiety, maintain the volume of blood in the body, regulate body temperature, facilitate intestinal transit…

Did you know that the human body is constantly losing water? and that it is evaporated during physical efforts or eliminated with metabolic waste. In order not to be dehydrated, we must renew our internal stock throughout the daytime. In any case, poor hydration can lead to migraines and headaches, eye pain, decreased vision, back pain, constipation, sleep disturbances, mood swings, fatigue, muscle aches … so before you rush on medications objectively ask yourself these questions: what about my diet and my hydration? Many daily inconveniences are linked to it and small changes can change your life. So I’m giving you some tips to help you drink more (water) every day.

And it is even more effective when you consume hot water on an empty stomach: it eliminates toxins and burns calories effortlessly.
