Drinking Enough Water

Healthy and balanced diets should include plenty of water. Why? Simply put, the body needs to function.
Water makes up much of the human body. Take our digestive systems for example, we need water for
digestion, absorbing nutrients, moving, and getting rid of waste products. We also need water to properly
regulate body temperature. Dehydration also impairs certain body functions. People who don’t drink enough water each day are more likely to develop kidney stones, have heart valve problems, and even increase their chances of certain cancers. Physical and mental performance can be adversely affected by even mild dehydration. Nearly every part of your body depends on water. So, get drinking!
