Water is a fountain of life. It’s proper we promote health. Some things we take for granted and hardly appreciate it until we don’t have them. If you have to ever had to go without food and water for any length of time you will be suffered from the lack of water rather than lack of food.
All living things in the world need water. No plant, animal, and the living organism can survive without water. Our body composed 70% of water by weight. If inadequate it will take water from vital areas like bones, joints, and skin to give to the brain and heart and some other organs.
How Much Water Should You Drink Daily?
You should drink enough water daily to keep our body organs function well. It is recommended that we drink at least 8 glasses of water a day because the body loses about 10 to 12 cups of water a day through the skin, lungs, urine, and feces. This means that you need to drink 6-8 glasses a day to replenish the loss of water in our body.
The best times for water drinking is first thing upon arising in the morning to flush out impurities, cleanse the stomach and sharpen the appetite. Also, 30 minutes before and after a meal because the more liquid there is taken in the stomach with the meals, the more it difficult the food to digest; for the liquid must be first absorbed.
Get into the habit of drinking water. It is free, the perfect beverage to quench our thirst and one of life greatest blessings. Water is exactly what the body needs to help every organ and system to function well.
