Do I really need to drink water every day?
Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.
The simple answer is, YES
You must drink water daily. Ok great, now that we have established that.
All that water has a long list of duties, from insulating your organs and lubricating your joints to forming the very building blocks of cells. And of course, the water that escapes you in sweat and urine helps to cool you off and rid your body of waste (although sweat isn’t as detoxifying as you might think).
How much water do I need to drink on a daily basis?
You say “what about the coffee, sodas, teas, seltzers, and other fluids I drink?” Do they account for any of my water intake? Yes and no. Most of those other liquid substances take extra water to digest and remove the additives, leaving you a bit dehydrated.
The crazy thing is your body has an amazing way of trying to adapt to its circumstances and will for sometime function ok with just these things, but over time, your body’s inability to protect itself and replace itself diminishes drastically without proper hydration. Leading to a myriad of health issues.
It’s never too late to start drinking more clean fresh water and eliminating some of those other liquids.
Start Your Morning
20oz of Clean fresh water, before anything else. Start here, do this daily for 30 days. Then begin to add in glasses of water throughout the day for another 30 days. Soon enough your intake of the other fluids will decrease and you will have more energy, your skin will look firmer and younger and your sleep will improve.
