Top Reasons Water is So Important to Your Health 7September

Did you know the body is comprised 80% of water? According to Top 10 Reasons We Need Water

Water makes up nearly 85 percent of your brain, about 80 percent of your blood and about 70 percent of your lean muscle. (Because there are a lot of tissues that have less water, the average is about 50 percent.).

It is also important for proper circulation in the body, removing toxins, proper digestion and works as a cooling system. Soft drinks, alcohol and caffeine are definitely not substitutions, in fact these beverages can often dehydrate your body.

So how much do you need to drink to be at optimum health? Some say drink half your weight in ounces, while Mayo Clinic says there is no simple answer. Many daily factors can elevate your need for more water consumption. We suggest talking with your doctor, let them help you be the healthiest you can be.
