      Lose weight: Drinking water helps you lose weight because it flushes down the by-products of fat breakdown. Drinking water reduces hunger; it’s an effective appetite suppressant so you’ll eat less. Plus, water has zero calories.
      Natural Remedy for Headache: Helps to relieve headache and back pains due to dehydration. Although there are many other reasons that contribute to headaches, dehydration is the most common one.
      Look Younger with Healthier Skin: You’ll look younger when your skin is properly hydrated. Water helps to replenish skin tissue, moisturizes skin and increase skin elasticity.
      Better Productivity at Work: Your brain is made up mostly of water, thus drinking water helps you think more clearly, be more alert and more able to concentrate.
      Better Exercise: Drinking water regulates your body temperature. You’ll feel more energetic when doing exercises and water helps to fuel your muscle.
      Helps in Digestion and Constipation: Drinking water raises your metabolism because it aids with digestion. Fiber and water go hand in hand so that you can have regular bowel movements.
      Less Cramps and Sprains: Proper hydration helps keep your joints and muscles lubricated, so you’re less likely to get cramps and sprains.
      Less Likely to Get Sick: Drinking plenty of water helps support your immune system which helps fight against flu and other ailments like kidney stones and heart attack.
      Relieves Fatigue: Water is used by the body to help flush out toxins and waste products from the body. If your body lacks water, your heat, for instance, needs to work harder to pump out the oxygenated blood to all cells, so are the rest of the vital organs, your organs will be exhausted and so are you.
      Good Mood: Your body feels very good and that’s why you feel happy.
      Reduce the Risk of Cancer: Related to the digestive system, some studies show that drinking a healthy amount of water may reduce the risks of bladder cancer and colon cancer. Water dilutes the concentration of cancer-causing agents in the urine and shortens the time in which they are in contact with the bladder lining.
German researchers found that drinking 6 cups of cold water a day (that's 48 ounces) can raise resting metabolism by about 50 calories daily - enough to shed 5 pounds in a year. The increase may come from the work it takes to heat the water to body temperature. Though the extra calories you burn drinking a single glass doesn't amount to much, making it a habit can add up to pounds lost with essentially zero additional effort.
I cannot stress enough how good water is for you.
