The Benefits of Drinking Water

Water is an essential part of all life. Plants, animals, humans, and all living organisms need it in order to survive. How much you need each day depends on a number of factors, like the temperature where you live, how active you are, the foods you eat—as some of your water intake will come from them—and more. However, it’s generally recommended that women need to intake around 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of water a day, and men need to intake around 15.5 cups of water a day (3.7 liters)

Consuming enough water each day is also good for our bodies and our overall well-being. Additionally, if we don’t get enough water our bodies get dehydrated, which can negatively impact our bodily functions. In this article, we’ll share some of the most important benefits of drinking water.

What Are the Benefits of Drinking Water

As mentioned above, our bodies require water in order to survive. But there are also many health benefits of drinking water, including:

  • Carrying nutrients and oxygen to all of the cells in our body. 90% of our blood is made of water, making water essential for proper bodily function
  • Helping to regulate our body temperature
  • Cushioning our joints
  • Stabilizing our heartbeat
  • Normalizing our blood pressure
  • Aiding digestion
  • Protecting our organs and tissue
  • Helping to prevent constipation
  • Flushing bacteria from our bladder
  • Maintaining the electrolyte (sodium) balance in our body
  • Helping to maximize physical performance
  • Helping us to have enough energy
  • Promoting healthy brain function
  • Preventing and treating headaches
  • Boosting skin health
  • Helping with weight loss

While the benefits of drinking enough water each day are clear, these benefits only come from drinking clean water. In fact, drinking contaminated or unfiltered water can lead to many health problems. In order to make sure you and your loved ones avoid unsafe drinking water and receive all the benefits of drinking clean water, consider using a water filter with activated carbon. 

At Aqua Clara, we provide access to clean water by designing, developing, and disseminating clean water technologies to benefit those who live on less than $2 per day. We also aim to provide safe drinking water by offering our Universal Cartridge Filter, which reduces many different contaminants. You can purchase a filter directly from our website, or they are also now available at Wal-Mart

Our Universal Cartridge Filter fits most household filter products, includes a rubber seal to protect against contamination, and will purify your home's drinking water at a reasonable price. The proceeds from these filters help fund our projects all over the world, so consider helping us make a difference by purchasing a filter today!

About Aqua Clara International

Scientists long ago discovered how to purify unsafe water. To us, the central issue has been in designing solutions that are both sustainable and scalable and that can reach the millions in need while at the same time continuing to function without sustained outside input. Our target populations are those individuals and families who live on $2 per day or less.

We are a technology transfer organization. Our niche in clean water continues to be in designing science-based technologies that utilize locally available materials where possible and then transferring what we learn to those working in areas of need. The cost of our technologies varies by country and is dependent on the prevailing costs of raw materials, such as plastic containers, PVC piping, sand, etc. Learn more by visiting our website.
