Sufficient daily water intake is vital for virtually every function within our bodies yet fewer than one in five of us drinks enough.
This article will reveal the results of n experiment that examines the effects of water on our body and health. Read on to see the results of this experiment.
Sarah Smith is a 42 year old mother of two young kids in the UK. She, like many others, openly admitted to not drinking the recommended 2 to 3 liters of water daily. She suffered from poor and sluggish indigestion and regular headaches. Following consultations with medical professionals for both issues she decided to take heed of the advice given – in both cases she had been told that she needed to up her intake of water. She decided to document and photograph what happened in a self imposed experiment whereby she would drink 3 liters, just over 5 pints, of water per day, every day for an entire month and see if she could feel any benefits.
She divided the amount of water she planned to consume in a big jug of water in the morning, another jug of water in the afternoon and the last one in the evening.
At the beginning of her experiment, Sarah looked at her face and noted “I am 42, but have to admit I look more like 52 in this picture, which is shocking.
There are dark shadows under and around my eyes, which make me look exhausted, a profusion of wrinkles and strange reddish blotches, and my skin lacks any lustre. It looks dead….even my lips look shrivelled.”
After the first week she claims that her bowel movements had significantly improved. She also said her urine was clear, she said she had sudden breakouts which were as a result of her body flushing out toxins from her body. Her joint pains had been relieved as the water helped to lubricate her joints and her headaches had virtually gone.
By the second week, her skin tone had improved and her complexion was better. She said her eyes still had some wrinkles but they were not as prominent as before. Her cellulite had gone making her stomach flatter. Her headaches were also completely gone.
In week three the dark circles round her eyes were gone. Her skin complexion was also very radiant and healthy looking. She also started to eat less, and also began to distinguish her need for food and her thirst.
Therefore, as she consumed large amounts of water, she did not eat more than her stomach actually needed.
After the fourth week, Sarah admitted: “I genuinely can’t believe the difference in my face. I look like a different woman. The dark shadows around my eyes have all but disappeared and the blotches have gone. My skin is almost as dewy as it was when I was a child. The transformation is nothing short of remarkable.”
In addition, she became much fitter and leaner, making it hard for people to believe that it was really the old Sarah they knew. Amazingly, this remarkable change in her appearance was result of increased water intake and nothing more! Take a look at the before & after photographs below:
