Giving our body the right amount of water means ensuring its health.
Our body is mostly made up of water (about 60 percent of body weight), which is why we could survive a month without food but not even three days without water. Therefore, in both the summer and winter periods, it is necessary to keep our bodies well hydrated because water within our bodies plays very important roles, from heart activity to joint fluidity, from digestive functions to kidney and liver function.

It is recommended to drink mostly water and to consume particularly rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables.

In good health, one can drink carbonated or natural water of any kind; however, it is recommended to vary the type often as each has different mineral contents. In addition, coffee, infusions, tea and herbal teas can supplement and help achieve proper hydration. Be careful, however, to avoid sugary drinks as much as possible.

But what is the right amount of water? Actually, the requirement varies from person to person and according to health conditions but, generally, it is recommended to drink at least 1.5-2 liters of water per day (that is, at least 8-12 glasses).

So watch out for symptoms of dehydration (dry skin and lips, dark colored urine…), and try to prevent thirst (the last warning sign) by drinking water in small sips throughout the day.
