It's better to sip water and drink water slowly instead of gulping the water down.

Sipping the water allows your body to absorb the water and take the water in much easier than it would if you gulp water down.

The healthiest way to drink water is to drink it slowly and not just gulp it down.

If you're thirsty you should drink a little and wait a few seconds and then drink some more until you finish the glass of water or bottle of water.

If you prefer to gulp the water down that is okay but it's better to drink the water slowly.

Also you should drink water throughout the day before you actually become thirsty to prevent dehydration.

Mineral water and alkaline water may be some of the healthiest types of water because they provide your body with essential nutrients, but simply drinking safe, uncontaminated water should be your number one priority.

Water is very important for our bodies to stay healthy.

Some key roles of water in our body include.

Carrying nutrients and oxygen to your cells.
Flushing bacteria from your bladder.
Aiding digestion.
Preventing constipation.
Normalizing blood pressure.
Cushioning joints.
Protecting organs and tissues.
Regulating body temperature.

Other benefits of drinking water are to maintain normal blood pressure, electrolyte balance, body temperature, prevent constipation, and improve your brain.

Water is essential.

You can survive many weeks without food, but you can only survive a few days without water.

Water is an inorganic, transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance, which is the main constituent of Earth's hydrosphere and the fluids of all known living organisms.

Water is very vital for all known forms of life, even though it provides neither food, energy, nor organic micronutrients.

In humans, water acts as both a solvent and a delivery mechanism, dissolving essential vitamins and nutrients from food and delivering them to cells.

Our bodies also use water to flush out toxins, regulate body temperature and aid our metabolism.

Without enough water, the kidneys use more energy and wear on tissue.

Your kidneys need to function adequately to flush out waste from your blood.

Eventually, your kidneys will cease to function without adequate water intake.

Other organs in your body may also cease to function without water.
