Everyone talks about drinking water as a panacea; it can help you lose weight, all other drinks are evil and you can drink as much water as you like.

Or have you heard the 8 glasses of water a day myth?

There are so many myths and distractions out there. And guess what – even the experts don’t agree.

The following infographic details the true benefits of drinking water.

Every effort has been made to source facts and dispels myths drawing information from sources such as the Institute of Medicine in the US and the Department of Health in the UK.

Will it give you all the answers, perhaps not, but it will help you make up your own mind about what you can drink, how much you want to drink, and why drinking water is a good idea.

  1. Good to see a post dispelling some of the myths of hydrating through water. One of the myths we like to uncover is that drinking water helps with dry skin….it doesn’t.
    We do like to point out however, that the many benefits achieved through proper hydration are worth the effort. It would be a shame if someone decided that hydrating properly is not worth it because of uncovered myths.
    Here are a few little known benefits of good hydration: Can help migraine sufferers – we are working with the UK-based charity The Migraine Trust to report about the link between dehydration and migraines; Dehydration is one of the causes of Dry Eye Syndrome – recently reported by Prof. Walsh of Bangor University who conducted research on this…and there are many more.
