HOWEVER EXCESS WATER IS BAD FOR YOU


Too much of any­thing is bad for you, and so it is true of water as well.

If you take too much water or drink it when not thirsty, you do your­self a deser­vice. For instead of boost­ing your con­cen­tra­tion, it will impair it.
By tak­ing in excess water, you will also risk your­self of los­ing impor­tant min­er­als as the water will flush them out.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DO NOT DRINK WATER

Your skin becomes dry and sickly looking.
You have a high risk of get­ting a heart attack.
Your body will not be able to fight off dis­eases and infections.
You will be sus­cep­ti­ble to migranes.
Your con­cen­tra­tion lev­els will be very low.

*** So do your­self a favour and make sure you drink about 6–8 glasses of water a day, not all at once, but spaced out dur­ing the day, so your body can func­tion properly.
