Drinking water does more than just quench your thirst — it keeps your body functioning properly and you feeling healthy. Nearly all of your body’s major systems depend on water to function and survive.
Every day, you lose water through your breath, perspiration, urine and bowel movements, which is why it’s important to continue to take in water throughout the day.
How much water a day should you drink if you fit into that category?
There's no one-size-fits-all answer. Water intake must be individualized, and you should check with your doctor if you are not sure about the right amount for you.
