I am sure, that most of us don’t even realize that Water is a nutrient. But Yes it is.
60 to 70 percent of our body is made up of water and when we do not hydrate it well, it becomes inevitable to ignore some serious health problems. And staying hydrated in the summer can be a difficult job for most of us.
It becomes even more important to hydrate your body well if you are regular gym going or exercise freak person. You sweat while working out or exercising, and need plenty of water to refill for the loss. The amount of water an individual requires to consume daily differs from person to person based on exercise level, how much he/she exercise, what is their daily routine work, how much he or she normally sweats, and other factors. The only best way to know whether or not you’re drinking enough water? Check the color of your urine. Pale color means that you’re adequately hydrated.
Every day while working or hanging out in this hot summer, we lose water through perspiration, urine, breath and bowel movements. Thus, it is important to refill your body with enough water and consuming beverages and foods that contain water.
