These are the evergreen words of the great baba Fela

Water which covers 71% of the Earth’s surface is a transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth’s streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms.

A lot of people have busy schedules through the day, at work, schools and others, to the extent they forget to have sufficient intake of the most essential food nutrient, water. My mum used to tell me each time I was going for some strenuous event especially during examination in school to “Remember to take lots of water”

Here are some notable importance of water you should know

Drinking water relieves fatigue

Consumption of water makes the body function efficiently. While dehydration decreases alertness and concentration, with proper hydration reverse is the case.

It improves weight loss

Drinking water helps to fill you up and suppress your appetite. In fact, a new study showed that drinking 16 ounces of water before eating leads to more weight loss.

It helps in digestion

Drinking sufficient water boosts your metabolism and helps the body properly break down food.

It flushes out toxins

Water is a detoxifier that helps to flush out toxins and get rid of waste primarily through sweat and urine.

It treats headaches and migraines

Headaches and migraines are often caused by dehydration. So, to get some relief, drink plenty of water.

It improves mood

Drinking water can improve your mood and ability to think. Even mild dehydration can have a negative impact on how you feel, so be sure to keep sipping water throughout the day.

It promotes healthy skin

Water helps replenish skin tissues, moisturizes skin, and increases the elasticity in your skin. It can also plump skin up a bit, reducing signs of aging.

It beats bad breath

Drinking water keeps your mouth moist and washes away food particles and bacteria. It also dilutes the smelly compounds that oral bacteria create.

It regulates body temperature

Water’s ability to release heat from the body when sweat evaporates from the surface of the skin greatly helps maintain an even body temperature.


Stay healthy, drink water and mind your business. Taink you.
