How much water does a person need?

Recently there has been a lot of controversy regarding the required daily amount of water. The issue is further complicated by the fact that depending on the way of life and age, this number varies. So how much water does a person need per day for normal life?

First you need to figure out why do you need water in the body. Water has several functions. It delivers nutrients to cells, removes slags from the body, dissolves substances.

Scientists of all countries agree that about half of the diseases can be avoided if you drink quality water in sufficient quantities. The average fluid rate per day ranges from 1.5 to 3 liters. This number includes not only ordinary drinking water, but also liquids from soups, fruits and vegetables, as well as a variety of water-based beverages.

If you experience great physical exertion and, accordingly, lose a lot of moisture through sweat and breathing, then you need to drink more.Fluid intake should be increased with weight loss, because water helps to remove excess toxins and normalizes digestion.

Be sure to drink a few glasses of ordinary water a day - it is most useful for the body. But do not get involved in mineral water - its excessive use leads to the deposition of salts.

If the smell of sweat and urine is strong - these are sure signs of a lack of fluid in the body. With a good water balance of the body, you can do without a deodorant.
