Why you should be drinking more water

Why you should be drinking more water 

Imagine the human body as a car. They often last a very long time if we take care of them properly, much like my friend’s 1999 Toyota Tacoma with over 300,000 miles… One of the best ways to keep your body and its engine working well is to ensure it always has water, which means drinking it on a daily basis. The same goes for our cars. Ensuring they have oil promotes a functioning machine, and when they lack it, a mess often follows.

The recommended daily intake of water can vary based on the individual and other factors, such as excess sweating from working out and kidney or thyroid issues. A general rule of thumb is to drink 8 glasses of water a day.

How does water help our bodies?

Water has a variety of different roles in the body, and according to The Harvard Medical School, such roles can provides benefits like:

  • transporting nutrients and oxygen to your cells
  • flushing bacteria from your bladder
  • aiding digestion
  • providing better looking skin
  • normalizing blood pressure
  • cushioning joints
  • regulating body temperature
  • keeping a balance of electrolyte-sodium balance

What does that mean for me?

Giving your body sufficient amounts of water each day keeps you well hydrated and allows for the body to maintain a proper level of homeostasis, which is when the body is functioning on all levels to its best capability.

Along with drinking water on a daily basis, CBD can help promote homeostasis in the body. CBD binds to receptors in the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) which has been studied and shown to affect our mood, appetite, stress levels, and immune system.

An easy way to take CBD daily is with CBD oils and CBD gummies. Both can be taken on a day-to-day basis and in smaller quantities. Try checking out some of our USDA Organic Oils and delicious gummies today! To learn more about CBD visit our CBD 101 page for all the relevant info you need.
