8 HEALTH BENEFITS OF DRINKING WATER
Drinking water is important for keeping a good health. The amount of water we consume daily can be influenced by different things like the climate we live in, how physically active we are and if we have any health-related problems. Our body weight is approximately 60 percent water and as much as we need water to stay alive, it is important to note that we lose water through sweating, breathing and during digestion; so it is necessary to rehydrate the body by taking fluids.
