It's critical to stay hydrated for good health and well-being, yet many individuals don't drink enough water daily. Water makes up around 60% of the human body and covers approximately 71% of the planet's surface. Perhaps it's because water is so omnipresent that getting enough to drink each day isn't high on many people's priority lists.

Consider water to be a necessary nutrient that can be found in liquids, plain water, and foods. "All of these are necessary daily to replace the significant volumes of water lost each day," says Joan Koelemay, RD, dietitian for the Beverage Institute.

You can become dehydrated if your water consumption does not match your output. Fluid losses are exacerbated in hotter climes, during hard exercise, at high elevations, and in older people who don't have as acute a sense of thirst.
