Water is an essential nutrient for life and is part of almost every tissue and process in your body, including the elimination of waste products and maintenance of the body’s temperature.
Without water, your body would stop working properly. Water makes up more than half of your body weight and a person can’t survive for more than a few days without it.
Water is lost from the body through urine and sweat, and must be replaced through our diets. Many people, though, don’t consume enough and as a result may become dehydrated, causing symptoms such as loss of concentration, headaches and tiredness.
Constant dehydration can contribute to a number of health problems, such as constipation. Did you know? Cordial, flavoured water, soft drinks and sport drinks, such as Gatorade, should not to be used as substitutes for water.
Water is the best drink to quench thirst.
Your body doesn't get water only from drinking water. Any fluid you drink will contain water, but water and milk are the best choices.
Lots of foods contain water, such as fruit and vegetables. Try to drink about 5-8 glasses of water each day! 1 GLASS IS EQUAL TO 250ml THAT'S HOW YOU CAN BE Happy, Healthy and Fit for the Future
