Just How Important is Water for Our bodies?
We all know that water is one of the key elements to all living organisms on this planet. Some living creatures are made up of up to 90% water. Around 60% of the human body is made up of water. We use this water to help our vital organs digest food, transport blood around the body and control our body temperature. It is recommended that humans drink approximately 2 litres of water a day to replenish the water used.
What happens if we don’t drink enough water?
Without sufficient hydration, your body will not be able to function at a sustainable rate and you can begin to feel very fatigued. Lack of water and electrolytes in the body can result in a lower blood volume making your heart work harder to get blood around the body. Other side effects of not drinking enough water includes dizziness, confusion, headaches and lack of strength. It also can increase mood swings and irritability. Not drinking enough water can lead to a slower metabolism and an increased appetite. On top of this, your physical appearance may begin to decrease making skin look older and wrinkled. Severe cases of dehydration can lead to the shutdownof vital organs.
How to make sure that you are drinking enough water
A recommended 8 to 10 glasses of water should be consumed every day. A great way to drink more water is adding a drop of lemon into your water to add a more refreshing taste.
