Your Body's Many Cries for Water

Water is essential for our health and plays a key role in maintaining the body functions. Up to 60% of the human body is water. We may survive a few weeks without food, but only a few days without water.


Functions of water:

 - Take away waste

 - Keep a healthy weight

 - Help convert food to energy

 - Regulate internal temperature

 - Maintain an efficient metabolism

 - Contribute to youthful-looking skin

 - Deliver oxygen and nutrients to all cells

 

When the body is dehydrated, it may cause symptoms such as fatigue, headache, wakened immune system, lack of energy, and dry skin.


Here are few signs that indicate you may need to drink water.

 - Fatigue

 - Dizziness

 - Bad breath

 - Frequent illness

 - Poor skin health

 - Increased heartbeat

 

Water is consumed during essential body activities such as breath, perspiration, digestion and excretion. Therefore, it is important to keep our body hydrated. However, drinking too much water may lead to over-hydration or water intoxication, which can cause tiredness, seizures, brain damage, coma, and even fatal conditions.

 

How much water should you drink every day? It may vary based on several factors, for example, your weight, your exercise intensity, your living environment (humid or dry), and many more. However, drinking water is not the only way to meet your fluid needs. You can also have food and beverages such as fruits, vegetables, milk, juice, and tea. The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine suggests an adequate daily water intake is:

Men: About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters)

Women: About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters)


Here is a simple formula to calculate how much water you should drink per day.


You may also follow the common suggestion of drinking eight glasses of water a day. It is a reasonable and easy goal for everyone.
