We all know that water is essential for living. We can survive hunger but surviving thirst is an extremely hard thing to do. Our body weight contains around 70% of water. Our muscles are primarily made of 80% water. We lose water when we breathe, when we sweat and when our body digests food.
So we need to continuously keep ourselves hydrated to maintain our energy levels. Dehydration dehydrates our energy level also. So keeping ourselves hydrated is crucial to maintain a daily routine. Also, when we eat a lot of heat-producing food items we should compensate with water or foods which contain water, else we could face some severe issues. Here’s how water improves our body.
- Water Protects Your Tissues, Spinal Cord, and Joints
- Water Helps Your Body Remove Waste
- Water Aids in Digestion
- It regulates your body temperature
- It helps maximize physical performance
The amount of water to be consumed varies from person to person. Heavy gymmers, lifters drink a minimum of 5-6 litres a day due to what they eat. But for an average person, 2-3 litres a day should suffice.
