Everybody knows more or less to drink enough per day. The most patients who are coming in my clinic mostly answering:“ yes I´m at least drinking 2-3 liter a day“. But the most do not really understanding why. If you know some facts about water and live you will have some better understanding and to drink water will not only be a mechanical act.
The list will show you the facts about water in % within the human body:
- brain > 73 %
- lung > 83 %
- teeth > 10 %
- heart > 73 %
- muscles > 79 %
- blood > 60 %
With this numbers it should be quite clear why the daily amount of water you taken should be at least 2 liters. You can say the water is like a transporter. The blood by itself is a mix of water with some cellular properties. All the intake of good food, minerals, vitamins etc. are not very helpful if it can´t transported to the place where its needed. And like you see at the above list how essential water is for the human. Is the percentage of water lowering down in the human body the hole functions will be reduced. The power of muscles, the brain function > concentration, focus etc. will be influenced by drinking to less.
I think with this information to quench the thirst is becoming more joy because you increasing your liife by keeping the bodily function up. Life and water a pair who belongs together. I for my self starting the day with a class room temperature water and I´m doing the same before going to bed.
