  • 7. Removes Kidney Stones

    Kidney stones form in the kidneys when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances. Drinking 10 glasses of water per day can prevent the formation of kidney stones because it will not allow the salts and other minerals to form into stones, thus flushing out the toxins.

    Water is extremely beneficial in preventing rheumatoid arthritis. The joints of the human body are prone to continuous friction, which can lead to arthritis. To maintain your joints in a proper shape and decrease the risk of arthritis, drink plenty of water.




We all know the importance of water and how much it is required by the body. Doctors recommend to drink at least 8-9 glasses of water per day. Drinking water has enough power to eliminate fatigue and depression from your body.

Water performs many primary functions in the body, which include carrying essential nutrients from the food you eat, regulating body temperatures, removing waste products, breaking down and transporting nutrients, and lubricating the joints.
