London, UK (Merxwire) – How much water do you drink every day? More than half of the human body is water; the water in the adult body accounts for about 50-60% of the body weight, and the water in the baby body accounts for about 70-75% of the body weight. Water is an important substance that helps the body’s metabolism. The main task is to transport nutrients and oxygen to various organs and excrete urea and carbon dioxide from the body.

Why can’t beverages replace water?

Almost everyone has this experience: drinking a lot of beverages and still feeling thirsty! Most beverages contain sugar, which may cause a burden on the body and may also increase dehydration. Therefore, people often feel thirsty after drinking beverages. In addition, coffee and tea contain caffeine, and caffeine promotes urination, so coffee and tea cannot replace water.

How much water should I drink every day?

“Drink eight glasses of water a day” and “drink 2000 ml a day” are the sayings that most people have heard. In fact, with the difference in age, weight, and degree of sweating, each person needs to add different amounts of water. Some nutrition experts and physicians have proposed a simple calculation method: bodyweight x 30 ml is the amount of water needed daily. People who sweat a lot can add more water.

Make drinking water plan

Don’t like drinking water, or forget to drink water often? Setting a “drinking time” can remind you to find a time to take a break and replenish the body with water on time. 

For example:

1. Get up to drink 300 ml of water
2. Drink 300 ml of water before work
3. Drink 300 ml of water during lunch break
4. Drink 300 ml of water at tea time
5. Drink 300 ml of water after exercise or bathing
6. Drink 300 ml of water 2 hours before bedtime

When drinking water is insufficient

If you do not supplement enough water for a long time, it may cause decreased urine, bad breath, muscle spasm, constipation, and dizziness. On the other hand, symptoms such as hypotension, elevated body temperature, electrolyte imbalance, and fatigue may also occur due to poor metabolism.

When drinking too much water

Insufficient drinking water can affect human health, and drinking too much water can also harm the body. When the human body replenishes a large amount of water but does not replenish salt simultaneously, the salt in the blood will be greatly diluted, causing electrolyte imbalance in the body, which is called “water intoxication.” Its symptoms include headaches, nausea, vomiting, and weakness, tremor, confusion, lethargy, etc.

People must replenish the water every day to maintain the normal functioning and metabolism of the body. Whether too little or too much water, it may cause harm to the body. No matter how busy you are at work, you must remember to bring a water bottle, replenish water on time, and not hold back your urine to help your body have normal metabolic functions.
