The benefits of hydration

Getting enough fluids isn’t just important, it’s vital. Water is the environment in which all the cells making up the body’s tissues and organs develop and grow.

Water also carries the sugars, proteins, electrolytes, and minerals our body needs to function properly. It plays a crucial role in eliminating waste, adjusting body temperature, and keeping joints moving smoothly. In other words, water is indispensable to all forms of life. Unfortunately, the human body can’t store its own water reserves and requires regular hydration to replace the liquids lost through breathing, sweat, urine, and feces. As a general rule, it is recommended to drink 2 to 3 liters of water per day. That amount varies significantly from one person to another and must be adapted based on health, physical activity, and temperature. We are lucky enough here to have easy access to plenty of fresh, potable water almost everywhere we go. There’s no reason not to stay properly hydrated!
