Top 10 Reasons We Need To Drink Water! (continued)

5. Water is essential for proper digestion, nutrient absorption and chemical reactions.  The carbohydrates and proteins that our bodies use as food are matabolized and transported by water in the bloodstream.  No less important is the ability of water to transport waste material out of our bodies.

6. Water is essential for proper circulation in the body.  The levels of oxygen in the bloodstream are greater when the body is well hydrated.  The more oxygen the body has readily available the more fat it will burn for energy. Without the presence of oxygen the body cannot utilize stored fat for energy efficiently.  Not only will the body burn more fat when well hydrated but because there are increased oxygen levels you will also have more energy.
