Drinking water helps the immune system

Spread the love

Our body needs at least 6-8 glasses per day as experts say and this is to help reduce headaches and can help the immune system. Some experts dispute this and it is important to drink fluids such as tea and fruit juices.

Water makes up about 60% of our body weight. All systems in our body need water and water carries nutrients to the cells, carries waste, bacteria and toxins away from the cells and out of our body. It keeps our body temperature stable, protects joints and keeps the lining of our mouth hydrated and moist.

Aim not to wait until you feel thirsty to drink water as this can lead to headaches and if your urine is dark yellow instead of pale yellow, this is a sign of dehydration. Mild dehydration can lead to making you feel tired and little energy.

If you are exercising or if it is hot weather, you may sweat more, so be sure and have a bottle of water to hand.

No matter where I go I always have a bottle of water with me and have now purchased a reusable bottle with a straw if required. Check and see if the tap water in your area is suitable for drinking and if it is then use it and I know some friends who always use a filter for their water. We are fortunate as the water in our area is very good to drink straight from the tap
