5 Incredible Benefits of Drinking Water

August 12, 2015 2 min read

We need water to live. That's a given. We've also been told that staying well hydrated is good for us, so we do it ... right? If water doesn't call your name, and you find yourself only gulping it down when you're thirsty, you may want to listen up! Here are the five best health benefits of water regularly.   1. Aids in weight loss. If this doesn't have you grabbing a glass right now, I don't know what will! Drinking water helps you to shed those extra pounds, says Dr. Child. “Firstly, it quenches the thirst that’s often confused with hunger, plus filling the stomach with water also stretches it, which send messages to the brain to say that you’re full, switching off hunger signals.”  You can also burn more calories by drinking it, since it aids in speeding up your metabolism. Try drinking ice cold water, Dr. Child suggests. “If you drink ice cold water, the body has to raise the temperature of the water to body temperature, which requires energy. So just drinking two litres of chilled water per day will mean you lose 1-2kg of fat over the course of a year.” 2. Boosts energy Before you brew an afternoon cup of coffee, try sipping on a glass of water, which has been found to be your answer for a pick-me-up. This is because dehydration slows down the blood to transport oxygen and other nutrients throughout the body. 3. Improves concentration Ever feel like you go through your entire day and can barely retain any memory? You may be dehydrated. Seeing as the body is made up of 85 percent water, it only seems natural that when you dehydrate yourself, your body reacts. Research conducted in 2012 found that being mildly dehydrated caused moodiness, problems focusing and fatigue. 4. Healthier kidneys This liquid aids in detoxifying the body, removing waste products via the kidneys. “The best way to keep the kidneys functioning well and avoid kidney stones is to keep your urine clear by drinking enough water," says Dr. Child. 5. Lowers blood pressure When your body lacks water, our blood becomes thicker, which in turn ups the force needed to pump it throughout the body. This results in a rise in blood pressure, so drink up!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
