Do you drink enough water throughout the day? Try to do this experiment – No matter how much water you drink on a daily basis, try to add a glass of water to that amount (~10 Oz/300ml). Believe us, you will be amazed by the results.
A study published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, confirm that only a glass of water more per day, can do a lot for our health.
How important is to drink water during the day confirmed another new study conducted at the University of Illinois.
Drinking only one more percent of water per day than you usually do, will consequently result in 8.58 percent less calories consumed during the day, 0.74 grams less sugar, 9.8 milligrams less sodium and 0.88 grams less cholesterol.
Respectively, drinking a whole cup, two or more of water per day will make the above numbers grow, and you will consume even 205 calories less than you usually do (without the extra water), 18 grams less sugar, 235 milligrams less sodium and 21 grams less cholesterol.
The survey encompassed 18,311 adults and was conducted in the period from 2005 to 2012.
