The importance of drinking water 04 Jan 2024

Why Drink More Water?

So, water can boost your ability to carry out fitness-related resolutions. But drinking water has benefits that go beyond just supporting exercise. Here’s why drinking more water should be your go-to January target and exactly how much you should aim for.

Boosts skin health

The more water you drink, the better your skin will look. Adequate water keeps your skin hydrated as well as the rest of your body, helping it look plumper and feel smoother and more refreshed. Goodbye, dry patches – hello glow!

Staves off dehydration

Dehydration – either temporary or chronic – can have serious negative effects on your body. Drinking enough water ensures you won’t suffer dehydration and the negative symptoms that come with it.

Delivers oxygen

Blood carries oxygen around your body where it’s needed – to vital organs and to your muscles when you’re working out. Since blood is mostly water, you need to stay adequately hydrated to ensure a good flow of oxygen.

Lubricates joints

Long-term dehydration leads to stiff and painful joints. Drinking adequate water ensures your joints are lubricated, making movement and exercise feel more comfortable.

Flushes out body waste

Water keeps your digestive system ticking along as it should and is a key component in removing urine and stools from your body. Not drinking enough water messes with your body’s ability to move food through the digestive system, leading to constipation. Ouch!

Reduces fatigue

If you ever spend a day drinking much less water than you can, you’ll likely feel tired and disoriented. This is because water helps reduce fatigue and tiredness. In fact, some hardcore travellers even swear by drinking enough water as a way to avoid jet lag.

How much water should I drink per day?

An adult should aim for around eight cups of water per day or two litres. You can obviously drink more (and there are benefits to doing so!) but be sure not to over hydrate by drinking a huge amount of water in one go.

Water On-the-Go

So, you know you need to drink more water, but you simply don’t have the time. With new options for taking water on the go wherever you are, convenience is no longer an issue.

With our handy TetraPak cartons, you can simply slip a carton of Avalis into your work bag or child’s lunch box and enjoy fresh, tasty water on the go. No more having to scramble around for a water fountain.

Water With Eco-Credentials

As well as health, many of us now turn to sustainability in their New Year’s Resolutions. With the climate crisis looming, doing your bit for the environment by making small chances is a must. That means avoiding buying water in plastic bottles and opting for more eco-friendly containers instead.

The good news?

Whether you opt for one of our TetraPak cartons or glass bottles, you can enjoy peace of mind that you’re not contributing to the tonnes of plastic waste that’s produced every year.

So, there you have it! Your New Year’s Resolutions don’t have to be difficult to attain to make a big difference. Simply prioritising water intake can have profound effects on your health, and doing it in a sustainable way has the added benefit of looking after the environment.
