2. Reduces Risk of Stroke, Heart Attack, and Lowers Cholesterol
Drinking adequate amounts of water can help reduce your cholesterol levels. Lower cholesterol levels will reduce your risk of developing arteriosclerosis, which is the blockage of your coronary arteries. When your arteries become blocked it can lead to having a heart attack or a stroke. As mentioned above, water helps to clear the blood vessels and allows them to relax. It is recommended to drink at least eight glasses of water each day. This in combination with gentle exercise such as walking will help to lower these risks a great deal.
