Why do we need water? What are the effects of water on our health?

Water is the main chemical component which makes about 60-70% weight of the body. Every system of our body depends on water. As water wash out all the toxins of our body. It is very important for the transportation of important nutrients of our body from one part to the other. It keeps our whole body and skin moist. Water is also very important for the one who wants to lose his/her weight because it limits the appetite and help one to shed fat.

The most frequent problem which is faced by the people, who do not drink water, is dehydration. Dehydration occurs when one expel more water then he takes in. And body doesn’t have enough water or other fluids to carry out different functions of the body.  And the result of dehydration is vomiting; fever or it may be excessive sweating. And it is very dangerous for one’s life. It may take one to death.

People who do not take a good deal of water suffer from many skin problems like pimples, acne, dry skin etc. This is why, skin specialists and beauticians recommend people (who suffer from skin problems) to drink a lot of water. People who do not care for drinking water also suffer from dizziness and do not feel fresh ever. It causes weakness and fatigue. They always feel tired. It has been observed that people who drink less water sleep more than the people who drink.

Every day one loses his/her water through one’s urine, sweat, bowel movements, and breathes. If one want his/her body to work properly he needs to drink a lot of water but here question arises how much water one need to drink? First of all, we need to know how much water we lose daily. So here is the answer, An adult lose about 1.9 liters in which  1.5 liters water through urine and the rest is lost by perspiration, breathing and bowl movement. 8 cups of water one loses his/her water from his body.

So if one want his/her body system work properly he will surely have to replace this amount of water. It is suggested by the general people that one have to drink at least 8 glass of water. But Institute of Medicine recommends men to drink about 3 liters while women to drink 2.2 liters a day. If one do a lot of exercise or hold himself doing such task which makes him sweat then, he need to drink lot water to replace the quantity of water which he has lost during exercising. So he needs about 1.5 to 2.5 liters of water.

A pregnant and lactating mother needs a lot water to drink because they need to be hydrated. The Institute of Medicine suggests pregnant and lactating mothers to drink about 2.3 liters water to drink. If anyone wants to beautify his skin and body he/she has to drink right amount of water.
