-The human body is 50-65% water. Men contain more water than women.

-Drinking a full glass of water 1st thing in the morning or right before a meal has been proven to increase weight loss.

-Warm water makes your stomach feel full.

-Ice water boosts your metabolism & immune system.

-Cold water stimulates your brain to release mood-boosting endorphins.

-Dehydration is one of the leading causes of headaches, cramps, lack of energy, constipation, and high blood pressure.

-Skin health, digestion, muscle function, and even brain function can all benefit from proper water intake.

-If you're thirsty, you're probably already mildly dehydrated! Don't wait to be thirsty to drink water- drink it throughout the day.

-Divide your weight (in pounds) in half= that's at least how many fluid ounces of water you should drink a day. Example: if you weigh 150lbs, 150/2= 75 fl oz (about 4.5 average bottles of water)
