Why Is Hydration So Important?

Why Is Hydration So Important?

Here at That Sweet Lyfe, we believe in taking care of our bodies – and for us, that starts with drinking enough water. 

Staying hydrated is one of the most important (and easiest!) things you can do for your body and your overall health. Want to know why? Keep reading to find out!

#1: Staying hydrated helps your body detox 

No, we’re not talking about those trendy detox diets we see all over the internet. Our bodies actually have natural detoxifying systems in place already. Our bodies eliminate waste and toxins whenever we use the washroom and even when we sweat! But these detoxifying systems can’t function properly without hydration. 

Drinking enough water helps the organs involved in eliminating waste do their jobs. From your kidneys to your bowels, water helps keep everything moving and grooving, keeping the good nutrients and getting rid of the rest. So this year, instead of going on a juice cleanse, try simply adding more water to your daily routine. Trust us, it’s just as effective!

#2: Staying hydrated helps your skin glow 

We all want that youthful, glowy, Hailey Bieber-type skin. But we don’t have to cough up hundreds of dollars for facials or luxury skincare to achieve it. All we really have to do is drink enough water. 

Drinking water can help prevent acne and pimples by aiding in flushing out toxins. It can help maintain your skin’s protective barrier by balancing your body’s pH levels. Plus, it can even prevent signs of aging by helping maintain your skin’s elasticity and prevent wrinkles, sagging, and those pesky dark circles under your eyes. Want to have your best skin ever? Start sipping on that water. 

#3: Staying hydrated helps your brain function properly 

Our brain depends upon water to get enough blood and oxygen to keep it functioning properly. When we’re dehydrated, our brains can’t receive proper blood and oxygen flow. This can cause headaches, fatigue, a lack of concentration, and even irritability. 

Nobody likes the feeling of brain fog or confusion. Try to start adding more hydration into your routine. You’ll be thinking more clearly in no time! 

#4: Staying hydrated helps you stay mobile and pain-free 

While the connection between hydration and our mobility might seem strange, studies show that proper hydration is the key to keeping our joints and tissues working well. Water essentially acts as a lubricant for our joints, helping them move smoothly and easily. This can reduce the pain we might feel when walking, exercising, or even just bending up and down. If you want to reduce pain and inflammation and stay active and mobile as you get older, try drinking more water to help your joints and tissues stay adequately hydrated.  

While these are just a few of the many, many benefits of staying hydrated, it’s clear that drinking enough water is one of the most important things you can do for your health. But, we also know that drinking water can get… well… boring. 

That’s why you need B*tch Water. Here at That Sweet Lyfe, we offer freeze-dried slices of lemon and lime to completely change your hydration game. They add a burst of refreshing flavour to every sip. We used to struggle to stay properly hydrated throughout the day. But with our B*tch Water, we actually look forward to drinking water! If you want to stay hydrated, be sure to order a batch to experience water like you’ve never had it before.
