The average human body is made up of 60 percent water, so itís no surprise that most experts agree that drinking water is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In fact, while there are many different opinions about how much water the average person should drink on a daily basis, the 8x8 rule may be the most widely recommended. This means that on a daily basis, each person should aim to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water, which is about a half-gallon. Additionally, it is believed that those who exercise, live in hotter climates, have certain illnesses, or are pregnant or breastfeeding may need an increased water intake to maintain a healthy level of hydration.
Most experts agree that drinking a sufficient amount of water can result in a number of health benefits, including:
- Increased energy levels
- Improved digestion
- Decreased appetite, potentially aiding in weight loss
- Elimination of toxins
- Promotes healthy skin
- And more
Although many studies show that drinking water can result in the health benefits listed above, it is important to talk to your doctor before making any significant changes to your diet.
