Are you taking the right amount of water to help you stay healthy?

Why does the body need water? 

       Water is an essential nutrient for the  body. It is essential for health, growth and development and  makes up more than two-thirds of the healthy human body. Water is essential for most  body functions, including: 

1. Keeps every cell in the body healthy. 

2. Carries nutrients and oxygen through the body by keeping enough water in the bloodstream  to pass through  blood vessels. 

3. Waste removal. 

4. Thermo-regulation by sweat. 

5. Aids digestion and prevents constipation. 

6. Retains moisture in mucous membranes  such as  the lungs and mouth.

7.lubricates and softens joints, and serves as a buffer for the eyes, spinal cord and amniotic membranes during pregnancy. 

8. Moisturizes the skin to maintain a healthy texture and appearance. 

 How much water do I need to drink to stay hydrated? 

         Most adults lose  2.5 to 3 liters of water per day and this water needs to be replaced. Your body can go through weeks without food, but only a few days without water. 

The amount of water your body needs varies from person to person and depends on many factors. This includes health, activity and residence. You need to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your urine  pale and clear. 

NHS Eat-well recommends drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water per day, which includes skim milk and sugar-free beverages including tea and coffee.

What happens if I become dehydrated? 

       If your body loses more water than it consumes, you become dehydrated. Depending on the outside temperature, activity and health, you may need to adjust your water consumption. 

Dehydration can be a serious problem and may be easier if you have diabetes,  vomiting, diarrhea, heat stroke, excessive drinking, excessive sweating, or  a high temperature above 38°C. 

Knowing and managing dehydration symptoms  can help prevent dehydration from worsening. Symptoms include urinating less than usual and urinating, which turns dark yellow and has a strong odor, thirst, dizziness, dizziness, fatigue, dry mouth,  headache, and mood changes. 

       Dehydration can be easily corrected by drinking more fluids. Severe dehydration requires urgent treatment and you should go  to the emergency room right away. 

Water retention affects  many parts of the body and  is important for optimal bodily function. If your body is not  hydrated for a long period of time, it can lead to problems  such as aging skin, obesity, dry eyes, digestive and urinary tract problems, and joint pain.
