Better health with Prestige Water. How much water do you need to drink per day to stay healthy? How many glasses of water are they? And how do you know whether it is sufficient or not? Having a full glass of water all the time. In this article you get the answers to these questions!
This is a tricky question! Because it differs per person. Someone who has a lot of sport will have to drink more than someone who is only on the couch. And if you have a fever or diarrhea, it is also important to drink more water. To make it even easier, it depends on what kind of weather it is, how old you are, whether you are a man or a woman, what you eat in a day, etc. The general rule is 1.5 liters of water per day If you drink 1.5 liters a day, you are probably very good. To make it specifically focused on you: the color of your urine says a lot! The darker it is, the more water you have to drink. If the color is transparent you do your best and you should drink a glass less. If your urine looks like this color, do it fine:
I came across a funny overview about what the color of your pee means. Colors emerge that I have never had before, but you might! How many glasses of water should you drink? In total you have to keep about 6 glasses, depending on how big your glass is. I have glasses of 300 ml at home so I have 5 glasses. But assuming that a glass is on average 250 ml, you must drink 6 glasses.
Do you need to drink 1.5 liters of water or do tea and coffee also count? The saving answer is yes: this counts. It is because you get enough fluid inside. Tea, coffee and other drinks mainly contain moisture and so you can count. A frequently heard statement is that caffeine removes moisture from the body and that you therefore have to drink extra water. A study by the university in Birmingham (England) showed that coffee (and therefore caffeine) does not extract moisture from your body, unless you drink coffee for the first time in your life. If you drink coffee daily, it will not be liquid to withdraw. In this article you can read how much coffee you can drink. This study also showed that coffee did not cause dehydration. What is also good to know is that there is water in our food. The first thing you might think of is cucumber or watermelon, but there is also moisture in vegetables, fruit and other types of food. This actually counts too.
Our body consists of 60% water! So if we do not drink enough water, our bodies will not be happy.
And so there are many more reasons why drinking enough water is important! Incidentally, there is no scientific research that shows that more (water) drinking helps for a better disposal of waste, a beautiful skin or helps with weight loss. The recommended 8 glasses of water per day that you often hear is not scientifically proven. But of course it can not hurt either.
Yes, that is why it is also important to drink water / moisture throughout the day. You lose moisture during the whole day. On average, a person loses 500 ml of fluid per day through the skin, 350 ml through the respiration and 150 ml through the stool. In addition, your kidneys also consume a lot of water to excrete waste. Your kidneys will need about 500 ml per day for this. And let it all be together about 1.5 liters! Exactly the recommended amount of moisture! Would that be coincidence? Do not think so. But as I stated at the beginning: it differs per person. So it also differs per person how much water you need.
First, you see that on your urine. But these guidelines can also help:
Something I often hear today is that water helps to lose weight and that it increases your metabolism. So I went to research. Water as a substitute for drinking. Water has no calories. So if you replace drinking with calories by a glass of water, you get fewer calories.
