Here’s a fact for you; if you’re not drinking enough water, your body is secretly suffering without you really knowing about it.
It’s quite often the case in children and teenagers, whose action packed, entertaining lifestyles remarkably can’t make room for regular hydration. Though while all you parents out there encourage your kids to change that worrying reality, it’s quite easy to forget that you need to consume enough fluids yourself. As a general rule, that’s 3 litres for men and 2.2 litres for women on a daily basis.
Living in the UK, you’d be forgiven for thinking that drinking water is the least of our problems…
We take it for granted, don’t we? But water is the main component of the human body. In fact, wrapped up in all that skin and bone, we’re 55 to 78 per cent water, depending on body size. So, it’ll come as no surprise that regular water consumption has numerous health benefits and, as an added plus, it has no calories, no fat; no carbohydrates and no sugar.
The water we consume everyday plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy body. Experts recommend we drink eight to ten glasses of it every day to stay tip-top.
