“Daily Dose” Tip: Drink Water

August 2, 2010  |  

The body is estimated to be 60 to 70 percent water. Water is essential for the transportation of nutrients and oxygen to cells, detoxifying vital organs, and regulating body temperature. Most doctors recommend that we drink 8 to 10 cups of water per day.  However, this number may be modified depending on your level of activity, health status, or the climate. Signs of dehydration include fatigue, headache, dark or amber urine. Not impressed with the taste of water? Try adding a slice of lemon, lime, or cucumber for flavor.
