Water is synonymous to life, as living objects cannot live without it. In spite of people wasting water on a daily basis, no one can negate the need and importance of water. As the water gets scarce due to pollution, we feel its greater importance.
WATER IS extremely essential for every organ, cell and tissue of our body. Water forms two-third of our body; it keeps body's temperature normal, lubricates and cushions the joints and protects our spinal cord and sensitive tissues.
It also gets rid of the body's waste products through urination, perspiration and bowel movements. We need to keep drinking water everyday simply because we lose water in our routine course of actions and we need to replace it.
Additionally, if one is in hot climate or is physically active or running a fever, the need to replenish becomes even more important. Of course, the need for water differs from body to body. Normally 8 cups a day of water is a good quantity. Remember, we also get water through tea, coffee, juice and many fruits and vegetables. All these things combined should be enough for the body to run well.
The best way to keep the body hydrated is to drink two litres of water during the day. Also, all the social drinkers must remember that alcohol dehydrates the body and hence they must take plenty of water to balance the effect of alcohol.
