Drinking Water Benefit #2: Prevent Cramping

A cramp is a sudden involuntary muscle contraction that is often severely painful. Though generally harmless, muscle cramps can make it temporarily impossible to use the affected muscle. Long periods of exercise or physical labor, particularly in hot weather, can lead to muscle cramps.

Fortunately, drinking plenty of water and avoiding dehydration is a quick and easy way to prevent cramping. Fluids help your muscles contract and relax. Fluids also keep muscle cells hydrated to avoid cramping up.
