6.) Improve Your Gut Health: Stay Hydrated
Water is essential to your health in general, as it acts as a transportation system, circulating nutrients throughout the body and moving out waste products. Logically, it plays a major role for your gut health, too.
As you see, little is better for your digestive system than water. So stay hydrated! You’ll need to drink at least two liters of water every day to keep hydrated. Even m0re if you’re exercising.
Like not eating enough fiber, drinking too little water slows down your digestive system significantly.
The trick: You’re getting enough water when your pee is clear all day long. Easy, right?
