8 Reasons to Drink More Water – DripDrop

This conversation is brought to you by DripDrop and SheSpeaks.


I’m not very good at drinking water the amount of water that I should.  Horrible in fact.  When I was pregnant I tried really hard to get close to the recommended amount but now that I’m not pregnant I only drink a few glasses a day.  I know it’s awful and I’m going to really try to do better!  To help me get excited about drinking water I’ve made a list of eight reasons why people should drink more water.

8 Reasons to Drink More Water

    • – Controls Calories – It fills you up and reduces your eating intake (if you drink water before meals), is a natural appetite suppressant, and it raises your metabolism!
    • – Immune Booster – Water not only helps with decongestion and dehydration but it will help your body bounce back when you feel down with a cold.  This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t see a doctor but chances are that they’ll tell you to drink plenty of fluids too in addition to their other advice.
    • – Headache Remedy – Headaches and migraines are commonly caused by dehydration and drinking water can relieve or prevent them from happening in the first place.
    • – Flushes Toxins – Drinking water naturally flushes the toxins out of your body which helps reduce the risk for kidney stones and urinary tract infections.
    • – Brain Power –  A study in London found a link between students bringing water into an exam room and better grades, suggesting that water promotes clearer thinking. It’s still unclear if actually drinking the water had anything to do with a better score but it doesn’t hurt to try!
    • – Good Mood – When your body feels good (and you feel good about taking care of your body!) you’ll feel good!
    • – Better Complexion – Water is the best anti-aging treatment around and it’s very inexpensive!  It will moisturize your skin better than any expensive cream (although I love my skin care products too!).
    • – Fatigue Buster – Water can help fight that noon nap sensation.  One of the most common symptoms of dehydration is tiredness. Drink water to help you stay alert.

The amount of water people need per day is up for debate but I know I need to up my amount by at least 5 or 6 glasses of H2O.  To keep myself hydrated I’ve recently tried DripDrop.  From their website,

DripDrop provides a simple, cost-effective solution that empowers everyone to treat mild to moderate dehydration with a safe, medical grade solution. Our hydration powder packets fit easily in the medicine cabinet, travel kit, purse and gym bag, so it’s there when you need it. Simply mix with water and consume.

DripDrop is loaded with electrolytes – including sodium, sugars and potassium – that promote good hydration, enabling your body to absorb water more quickly into the bloodstream and promote greater fluid retention.

You can drink DripDrop to proactively prevent dehydration, or use it to reverse fluid loses following an illness, a long workout, or after a long day at the work when you barely left your desk.

Here are a few tips I’m trying to keep myself hydrated: I begin each day by drinking a glass of water as soon as I wake up.  I’m trying to get in the habit of keeping a water bottle on hand at all times.  I’m also adding a DripDrop packet to my water to help spice up the flavor and keep me better hydrated.
