Our bodies rely heavily on water. Thanks to water each of our molecular cells, tissues and organs remain functioning. So what exactly happens when you drink water for 30 days? Incredible things.
Forget about the sodas, iced teas, coffees and energy drinks that you may normally have throughout the day. They don't give you the same benefits that water can bring your body. The simple addition of more water throughout the day can affect you greatly without the need to change your diet or exercise routine in the following ways.
Age gracefully. Jen knows.
Want to maintain glowing and youthful skin? Stay hydrated. Water not only keeps your internal body running efficiently but it also helps keep your skin hydrated and wrinkle-free.

42-year old mom Sarah definitely believes in the power of water and hydration. She was interviewed by the Daily Mail after drinking only water for 30 days. Every day she drank around three liters of water in an attempt to overcome the headaches and poor digestion that she suffered from. At the end of the 30 days she couldn't believe what a difference water had made on not only her outside appearance but on how she felt inside as well. Her headaches were gone and her poor digestion was no longer an issue.
I genuinely can't believe the difference in my face. I look like a different woman. The dark shadows around my eyes have all but disappeared and the blotches have gone. My skin is almost as dewy as it was when I was a child. The transformation is nothing short of remarkable.
Increased mental creativity and performance
If you're feeling thirsty, drink. According to the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, reaction time can be increased when drinking water especially if you're showing signs of being thirsty. If you're feeling thirsty a glass of water may be the solution to helping your visual and mental behavior improve as well as the speed at which you process information. Not having a sufficient amount of water in the body can make you tired and tense, so if ever you start to feel tired pour yourself a glass.
Drinking water does the body good. It circulates nutrients throughout the entire body and flushes out toxins to get rid of extra water weight and burn fat. It's good practice to drink a glass or two of water 30 minutes before eating a meal as research suggests that it can help with weight loss according to Web MD. People who do so are more likely to shed more pounds than those who do not.
Stronger immune system
If you want a healthy body, you have to stay hydrated. The benefits of water can treat and prevent multiple diseases such as arthritis, depression, insomnia, leukemia and lymphoma. Water helps carry nutrients throughout the body and immune cells such as white blood cells which help combat diseases. It also aids in digestion to keep your digestive system in order and prevent serious digestive problems.
Super charged metabolism
Turns out that drinking more water can help speed up your metabolism, therefore help burn off more weight. After drinking water the rate at which calories are burned increases within 10 minutes of having had water and peaks after about 30 or 40 minutes, according to a study conducted by Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
Without water your heart would have to work harder to keep your body going. Your heart needs to be able to pump oxygenated blood to all of your cells and if you're dehydrated you're causing all of your vital organs to have to work harder. This can cause fatigue and other health related concerns.
Moral of the story...
Do yourself a favor and reach for a *few* glasses of water. Stay hydrated and do your body some good!
