  • How important it is to drink water everyday

    Water is the basic component of the human body, as it constitutes an amount ranging from 50 to 70% of the human weight, (depending on the size of the body)

    The amount of water that a person drinks daily plays an important role in maintaining the health of the body. Therefore, nutrition experts recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water every day to maintain good health. Water also helps to maintain body moisture in a large way. This is essential because most cells in the body need water to function properly.

    Water is necessary for all functions of the body because it facilitates the process of digestion and absorption, and it is an essential substance in the formation of blood and lymphatic fluid, and it also helps in the process of excreting toxins out of the body, in addition to that, it regulates body temperature, and it forms liquid secretions such as saliva, tears and gastric juices, It also moisturizes body tissues such as Oral tissues, eyes and nose.

    The most important benefits of drinking water:
    Reducing fatigue: If you often feel tired, there is a high possibility that it is due to insufficient water consumption, which makes the body function less efficient, because fatigue is one of the first signs of dehydration in the body.

    Improving mood and treating headaches: Research indicates that dehydration can negatively affect mood and cause headaches, which negatively affects brain function, so drinking water can help improve mood.

    Helping to lose weight: Drinking two glasses of water before meals gives a feeling of fullness in the stomach and reduces appetite, which helps to eat small amounts of food, and thus contributes to weight loss. Water also helps to increase the rate of burning body fat, and works to eliminate fat cells.

    Detoxification: Water is a very effective way to cleanse the body of toxins and waste, as it enables toxins to be expelled from the body, by getting rid of them through sweat and urine, and water reduces kidney stones by dissolving salts and minerals in urine.

    Regulating body temperature: Having an ample amount of water in the body helps regulate body temperature.

    Maintaining healthy skin: Water improves blood flow, which helps regenerate skin tissue, moisturize the skin and increase its smoothness.

    Reducing bad breath: Water keeps the mouth moist and removes leftovers and bacteria stuck between the teeth and gums, so drinking enough water, especially after eating, helps reduce mouth odor.

    What is the amount of water needed by the body daily?
    The amount of water necessary for the body varies according to age, weight and physical movement, and the weather plays a major role in determining the amount of water needed for the body, and the hotter the weather the more the body needs a larger amount of water.

    The amount of water that children need should not be less than 0.8 liters of water per day, while adults need an amount ranging from 1.5 to two liters per day, which is equivalent to 8 cups of water. This is sufficient for most people in mild weather, while the amount of water increases in hot weather.

    When exercising, you should drink more water than usual, as it is recommended to drink a glass of water before exercise and half a cup every 20 minutes. After completion, the lost fluids must be compensated with water or fluids, especially if the exercise is very vigorous.

    How to make water part of the daily diet of children:
    ⦁ Many children between the ages of 3 and 10 do not tend to drink water in sufficient quantities, so mothers must provide water to their children regularly during the day at the rate of one cup as soon as the child wakes up in the morning, two cups before each meal and one cup half an hour before bedtime.

    ⦁ Do not wait until your child feels thirsty and make sure to provide him with water regularly from time to time throughout the day, which makes him get used to drinking water and demands it every hour or two of the day.

    ⦁ Add more fun and joy when you offer water to your child. For example, serve water in colorful cups and lollipops with beautiful graphics. In the summer, it is also recommended to add a few ice cubes with your child's favorite shapes.

    ⦁ When your child asks you for a soft drink or sweetened juice, suggest that he drink a glass of water first. Through this method, you will find your child's reluctance to drink any drink after the water, and if he continues to want to drink another drink after the water, you will discover that he is eating very small amounts, desiring nothing more than the sweet taste.​
