When we injure ourselves or create stress in the body, there is an inflammatory response to release chemicals that are initially helpful, but ultimately, these same chemicals need to be eliminated from the body in order for it to heal properly. 

How water helps heal injuries: A couple of ways these toxins are removed from the body are through sweat and urine. So, if you are not consuming enough water throughout the day your body can’t process and remove toxins which will lead to longer healing times and a compromised immune system.

Bottom line: Make sure you’re drinking an adequate amount of water each day. ?
