We all know drinking water is “good for us” but what does that really mean?

Health benefits of water go beyond simply feeling hydrated; it aids a myriad of bodily functions.

Drinking lots of water has been proven to positively affect cognitive performance — such as alertness, short –term memory, and fatigue. It can also help keep your skin healthy and reduce aging.

It’s especially important to stay hydrated when exercising. Your body dehydrates much faster during physical activity, which can not only affect your workout but also your wellbeing.
