How Much Water Do You Need?

Water is required for the proper functioning of every cell, tissue, and organ in your body.

What amount of water should one intake? This is the most common question with no decent answer. We all know that water is very essential for our existence and it has many health benefits, but what quantity should one take daily!

About 60 percent of our body is made up of water. During the day, the body constantly loses water, mostly through urine and sweat, but also through breathing and other routine functions. It is important to drink plenty of water every day as well as eat plenty of food to prevent dehydration.

Need For Water

Water is required for the proper functioning of every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. Some examples are:

· It excretes waste through urination, sweating, and bowel movements.

· Maintains a normal body temperature

· Assists in lubricating and cushioning joints

· Protects sensitive tissues

How Much Water Do We Need?

Water is essential to your body's function, which is why you should drink and consume foods containing water. As per the research, it is recommended that:

· Men should drink about 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids each day.

· Women should drink about 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids a day.

Say About Drinking 8 Glasses of Water Per Day

You might have heard this statement from almost everyone and also from your nutritionist expert. Well, that’s a fairly good choice. Most healthy persons can keep themselves hydrated by drinking water or other fluids whenever they are thirsty. Fewer than eight glasses of water per day may be sufficient for some persons. Others, on the other hand, may require more assistance. Several factors can affect the total amount of fluid you need to drink:

Workout- If you engage in any activity that causes you to sweat, you should drink enough water to compensate for the fluid loss. Exercise should be followed by water consumption before, during, and after.

Environment. Sweating is a natural reaction to hot or humid weather, and it needs more fluid intake. High heights can also cause dehydration.

Overall well-being- Fluids are lost whenever you have a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting. Follow your doctor's instructions regarding oral rehydration or add more water to your diet.

Breastfeeding and pregnancy -If you're pregnant or nursing, you might need to drink more fluids to stay hydrated.

Always Remember

Generally speaking, drinking too much water is not a concern for healthy, well-nourished individuals. In an attempt to prevent dehydration while exercising intensively or for long periods, athletes may drink excessive water. Consuming too much water can cause your kidneys to become unable to eliminate the excess water. As a result, sodium levels in your blood is diluted. The condition is called hyponatremia, and it is fatal.
