4. Up your Daily Water Intake –
The human body can last weeks without food, but only days without water. Water forms the basis of blood, digestive juices, urine, perspiration and is contained in lean muscle, fat, and bones. As the body can’t store water, we need fresh supplies every day to make up for losses from the lungs, skin, urine and faeces. The amount we need depends on our body size, metabolism, the weather, the food we eat as well as our activity levels.
Ten reasons to drink more water:
- Water is essential to the human body’s survival.
- Water also helps to maintain a healthy body weight by increasing your metabolism and regulating the appetite.
- Water leads to increased energy levels.
