The human body is made of 60% to 75% of water depending on your age, how much you weigh, if you are a man or woman and how healthy you are. Every cell in your body needs water to function properly. Everyday our bodies lose water from bodily functions. We have to replenish the water lost by drinking water. If you do not put back the water you lost you will become dehydrated. This can lead to sickness and even death in the worst case scenario.
Dehydration: loss of water and salt that is needed for daily bodily functions.
Signs you might be dehydrated:
- you lack of energy, your mind is always in a fog, you are aging faster than you should, you have constant joint and body pain, you crave sugary foods all the time, you are constipated all the time, you are gaining weight and you don't know why, or you have digestive disorders and skin problems.
If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms it is time to help cure yourself by adding lots of fresh water to your diet.
How much water you should be drinking depends on your weight. You should drink half your body weight in ounces daily for optimum health.
