Water For Heart Health

Water has numerous health benefits that are hard to quantify. We have previously talked about the positive effects that water has on the joints and skin. However, can water also play a crucial role in maintaining the health of such vital organs as the heart? According to several studies, the answer is affirmative. Water can help keep your heart healthy and even save your life.

Water is essential for the proper functioning of the heart. It helps prevent heart disease and is even more crucial in treating heart problems. Dehydration can exacerbate the symptoms of coronary disease. Not drinking enough water can make heart problems far more severe, leading to potentially fatal outcomes.

Why is this so?

Dehydration can cause the blood to thicken, one of the most concerning symptoms. Thick blood is not a friend of an already weakened heart. Drinking a proper amount of water can help alleviate the strain.

According to a study by the American Journal of Epidemiology 2002, drinking more than five glasses of water per day can significantly reduce the risk of fatal coronary disease. The study found that the risk decreased by more than 40% compared to those who did not drink enough water. It’s worth noting that these results only apply to pure water and not to soda, juice, or sports drinks. However, adding a little lemon can be a great option if you want to add some flavor to your drink.

Drink the right amount of water and you will improve your health and benefit your heart too. Here are some great tips to help you drink more water:

  1. Keep water on hand: By having a water cooler in your home or office, you will have fresh and cold water available at all times, making drinking more water easier.
  2. Use a water-tracking app: These apps can help you measure how much water you have drunk and set reminders to drink more.
  3. Try hot tea: Drinking hot tea, such as lemon ginger tea, is also a great way to stay hydrated.
  4. Opt for sparkling water: Sparkling water is an excellent option if you crave the fizz.
  5. Set a goal: Having a goal to drink a certain amount of water each day can help you stay motivated.
  6. Use a straw: Drinking with a straw can increase water consumption, and using a reusable straw can reduce waste.
  7. Check-in halfway through the day: Taking a moment to check in can help you see if you’re on track to meet your daily water consumption goal.

Remember that while drinking more water can be helpful for your health, it’s essential to seek medical advice and treatment from a doctor if you have any health concerns.
