Water is not just a clear colourless, odourless and tasteless liquid we consume or use domestically or industrially on a commercially, it also makes a significant percentage of our body mass as well.
Water plays a lot of significant roles in our body. A lot of biological processes need to be carried out to ensure survival. And these biological processes need water to proceed. These biological processes include;
Excretion or flushing out of wastes and toxins in the body through urination, sweating and defecation
Body temperature regulation
Improving digestion and preventing constipation
Water has been proved to also improve mood, boost blood circulation and hydrates the skin to give a younger and firmer look. That makes it a natural anti-aging liquid.
So, I much water should you take in a day? A lot of factors need to be considered here, and one of them is the weather of your country or zone. A man should take between 3-4 litres a day (15-18 cups) while a woman needs between 2.2-2.5 litres a day. A bulk of our water intake comes from food and beverages, but that isn't enough. We lose a lot of water through exhalation, exercise, excretion through perspiration, urination and defecation. Thus, we need to replace water constantly. Without water, one suffers dehydration. And this could be lethal, very lethal. About 60% of our body weight goes for water ( in adults) and about 70% in kids, which means that a significant loss of water in the body could send the alarm bells ringing in a matter of days or just few weeks. The brain swells, the kidney gets overworked, the cells shrink due to plasmolysis and other tissues too get worn out.
So why not make a bottle of water your travel partner today?
