Five reasons why drinking water is good for you

Hydration

Drinking water keeps you healthy and in good physical condition. Water is an indispensable element in the human body. Apart from keeping our bodies well-hydrated, water is crucial for our organs. Our organs are incapable of functioning properly without enough water. Water also acts as a carrier for nutrients and oxygen, and is a key source of calcium and magnesium. Without water, our bodies simply wouldn’t be able to function properly (source:http://lifehacking.nl/productiviteit-tips/waarom-water-drinken-je-ochtend-productiever-maakt/). 

Headache? 

Offer your employees a glass of water if they are suffering from a headache. Dehydration is the primary cause of headaches. If you drink enough water, your chances of getting a headache will be considerably reduced (Source:http://www.dokterdokter.nl/gezond-leven/eten-drinken/hoofdpijn-misschien-heb-je-gewoon-dorst/).

Stress?

Nutritionists advise drinking 1.5 litres of fluids every day. This daily intake is particularly recommended when you are suffering from stress. Water is the primary carrier of nutrients to our cells and waste products to our excretory organs. To expel waste products caused by stress from our body as quickly as possible, it is essential that we drink enough water. Water is also our primary source of magnesium, calcium and potassium. These minerals are indispensable to the human body in times of stress.

Promotes digestion

Water is a 100% natural thirst quencher and is truly a universal remedy. Encourage your employees to drink at least the recommended daily intake of 1.5 to 2 litres of water.

Back and joint problems? 

If you suffer from back and joint problems from time to time, be sure to drink enough water. Research has shown that eighty per cent of participants in a study experienced fewer back and joint complaints when they drink six to eight glasses of water a day. http://www.hydrobru.be/nl/tips/water-goed-voor-de-gezondheid/).
