Drink Water to Prevent Pain
You already know that drinking water is a necessary and healthy daily habit. But do you know how much your water intake affects your joints, back and other parts of your body where you may be experiencing pain?
When it comes to your joints, drinking water can reduce pain by keeping the cartilage soft and hydrated. Glucosamine helps reduce joint pain, by aiding in cartilage’s absorption of water.
One major sign of dehydration is a headache. Dehydration can also cause back pain. When the discs in your spine are not properly hydrated, they cannot absorb shock as effectively. Eventually this will lead to swelling, possibly a ruptured disc and accelerated disc degeneration.
Obesity and chronic pain go hand in hand. So if weight loss is on your mind, then staying hydrated is key. Drinking water can be an appetite suppressant, cleanse your body of toxins and boost your metabolism.
