Do You Drink Enough Water To Stay Healthy

Aug 11, 2008
It seems that everyone you see these days are carrying around a bottle of water with them everywhere they go. It might be that these people have finally gotten the message that water is more important to our good health than we realized. Of course, we have always known that water is essential to our survival we just might have lost sight of just how important it is in daily life. We drink many different things during the day, and the most of them contain a certain amount of water, but they also contain a lot of other things that we do not necessarily need.

Until recently, it was not uncommon for people to spend all day sipping on sodas or coffee. These beverages in moderation are alright for us to have it is just that we had to learn that they did not replace plain old water. Water is needed to flush out our systems and to keep us hydrated. Our bodies are fifty to sixty percent water when you are mature and depending on whether you are male or female.

Everyday our bodies lose water because of our bodily functions. The climate we live in can also help determine how much water we lose each day. This is why it is so extremely important that we replace it daily. If you are the type of person that might go two or three days without even thinking of drinking a glass of clear, pure water, then you definitely need a change in what you drink.

It has been said that a person should drink eight full glasses of water everyday, but realistically, this could be a little difficult for some of us. It is better to ask your doctor and based on your age, weight, and health issues, he might be able to tell you the accurate amount of water you should drink each day. The point is if you never drink water, you may not be healthy for long. Dehydration can cause muscle aches and headaches. If you suffer from these afflictions regularly and do not drink a recommended amount of water, maybe you should to see if it helps.

Whenever we are partaking in sports or other activities, especially in the hot out doors, it is especially important to keep hydrated and nothing works better than plain water. If you do not really like plain water, try some that are flavored, but pay attention to the sweeteners or artificial colorings that might be added. You can also get water from eating fruits too.
