Drinking adequate water has many benefits as it helps maintain a good metabolic rate and also the blood pressure levels. But drinking plain water can feel boring sometimes. So, what can you do to help both your gut health and taste buds?

Functional training coach Vijay Menon suggested this easy tweak which can help you have “enough water”.

“Approximately two-thirds of the adult human body is made of water. And did you know your tissues and organs are mainly made up of water.
