Without water, there is no life.
80% of the baby’s body is water, and 70% of adults.
In other words, 35 kilograms of people weighing 50 kilograms are water.
Humans are made up of cells, which have cell walls, nuclei, and cytoplasm, and the water of the syrup, at least mainly water. The main components of blood, lymph, and cerebrospinal fluid in the human body are water.
The water in the human body is also constantly metabolizing. The water in the stool, urination, sweating, and exhaled water is discharged, and the water that participates in the body structure, so people need to constantly replenish water to maintain the balance of water in the human body.
If it is lack of water, it will affect your health.

How much water do people need to drink every day?
each person drinks 1,200 to 1,500 milliliters per day.
How to drink 1 200 to 1 500 ml of water per day?
Some people have studied, removing sleep 8 hours a day for 16 hours a day, and distributing the water evenly, drinking 75 to 100 ml per hour, it is “scientific”, but it is too cumbersome, of course, it is not necessary.
▪ Someone said: “Get up in the morning to drink a glass of water, because you don’t drink water overnight, the body is short of water, and the blood concentrates easily to form a blood clot, causing myocardial infarction and cerebral embolism.”
This is a good thing, and elderly people with a cardio-cerebral vascular disease should pay more attention. If you don’t have this foundation, you can drink water in the morning, or you can use some fluid food when you use breakfast.
▪ Some people also said: “You can’t drink water at night, or you can affect your sleep at night.”
This is not a fake. However, when the person sleeps, the kidney has the function of concentrating urine. At night, the polyuria is more common in the elderly with reduced urinary function of the kidney, rather than just drinking more water.
▪ Someone said, “Don’t wait for thirst and drink water again. You are thirsty and your body is running out of water.”
Drinking water is also in favor when you are thirsty. Thirsty when the body is short of water is a protective reaction of the human body. It is normal to drink water after thirst.
What kind of water do you drink?
River water, well water, tap water, and natural tap water are good.
The state has quality standards for tap water and can be drunk as long as it meets the standards.
But nowadays there are many such things as mineral water, distilled water, space water, ionized water, oxygenated water, etc., each sings a tone, they say that they are good.
In fact, the basic requirements for drinking water are only clean and harmless.
What kind of potassium, sodium, and magnesium are added, in fact, in the diet, the human body is not lacking; “people are not fish”, adding oxygen, water, gastrointestinal fear can not be absorbed, and what is the benefit?
Substituting drinks for water is the wisdom of people.
Tea and “iron”
Drinking tea is good, black tea is refreshing, green tea is hot and diuretic, but tea contains tannic acid. Ingestion will affect the absorption of iron, and iron is the raw material for making red blood cells. Therefore, drinking tea should not be too strong.
Coffee and “heart”
Coffee containing chlorogenic acid and other substances have anti-oxidation effect, or may help to delay aging, but excessive drinking can make the heart beat faster, blood pressure rise, should be properly controlled.
Sugary drinks and “diseases”
Drink less sugary drinks, too much can cause obesity and even lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis.
Salt water and “hypertension”
Salt water is not necessary, too much salt can cause high blood pressure, and now people’s salt intake has already exceeded the standard.
Beer and “health”
It is absolutely unacceptable to use beer instead of water. Although the alcohol concentration in beer is not high, there are many alcohols consumed in large quantities. The harm of alcohol to health is “you know.”
All in all, drink plenty of water for health.
About 3 to 4 cups of water a day, one cup in the morning, afternoon and evening.
