Drinking water frequently is essential to live a healthy life. More than that, you must get the right amount of water in your system. You need this water for your body to function at top performance. Although, you may have been given some false information about how much water you should drink in a day.
Truth is, you may have heard or been told to drink eight glasses of water every day. Although, it’s only a myth that we need eight cups of water each day. In fact, research shows that there’s no particular amount everyone should be drinking. It’s not a one-size-fits-all. Instead, factors such as body fat, age, and physical activeness play a part in how much water should be consumed.
Unfortunately, there’s not a solid answer as to how much you specifically should be drinking. There’s too many different factors contributing to your specific intake. The United States National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, says that 15.5 cups for men and 11.5 cups for women is an adequate fluid intake a day. Although, that’s fluid intake, which is water also gained from other beverages, and food.
