Healthy drinking from your water cooler Petrie, how much water do I need per day

Your body consists of approximately 60% water and every day we get about 3 liters of fluid through our food and drink. Water is thus an essential part of our lives, but its importance is often underestimated. Why is drinking water so important and how can you ensure that you drink enough?

Every day you lose fluid

The body of women and the elderly consists of about 60% of water, the body of men from about 65% water. Every day a large amount of fluid leaves the body through the skin (if you sweat), when you go to the toilet but also through the breathing. The amount of fluid you lose differs per person, because this depends on a number of factors such as age, gender and weight, but the physical effort also plays a role. To compensate for the fluid that you lose per day, you must drink enough. We need about 1.5 liters of water per day. In normal circumstances, adults need about 2.5 liters of water per day. We get about 1 liter of water from food so there is still 1.5 liters left. Good hydration in the summer. A glass of water is the best way to get enough moisture, because it contains no calories, sugars or other additives. But also in other products you will find moisture such as tea and fruit. It is best to drink healthily and choose the drinks that are in the Schijf van Vijf. These are water and black and green tea. Milk, coffee and herbal teas are also allowed, but only to a limited extent (2 to 3 cups per day). Drinks with sugar such as fruit juice, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages and energy drinks are best not to drink too much. Alcohol and coffee also drift away moisture, which only increases your need for moisture. Calculate how much water you should drink per day.

Get rid of waste

Water is needed for the disposal of waste. The kidneys remove all waste and purify the blood. What remains are the waste products that leave the body via urine. Water is therefore important for the kidneys and therefore also for the removal of waste. You can check if you drink enough by looking at the color of the urine. When it is very dark, it means that the moisture percentage in the urine is very low. A sign that you drink too little. In fact, it counts here that the more you drink, the lighter your urine becomes. Read more about the color of your urine.

Control temperature

The body needs water to keep it at temperature. Tips to get through the summer COOL. If you are warm, you will sweat, for example. This is a cooling mechanism of the body. If you do not have enough moisture, this may cause you to not cool sufficiently.

Helps digestion

Everything you eat ends up in the stomach that changes everything into small particles with the help of stomach acid. The important nutrients from food are absorbed into the blood (which consists mainly of water) and transported to the right places in the body. In addition, fiber that you get through the diet requires moisture to do their job. They bind the fluid to themselves, which makes them softer the stool.

Tips. How can you drink more water?

Water is seen by some as boring and tasteless and that is why it is faster to opt for soft drinks or fruit juices. Sad, because you can make a very nice drink from water. For example with fresh herbs and fruit. We give you 3 examples:
