How much water should you drink per day

How much water needed also depends on each person’s weight, exercising time, even climate factor. Water is
necessity to keep us in normal working temperature condition to avoid from overheating or fever. Generally,
we need an average of 1.5 to 2.5 Liters of water per day to compensate our daily water lost.


When your body is less than the required water will enter the dehydrated state, which may be in life danger. When
your body’s fluid is below 1% of the normal body fluid level, you will start to feel very thirsty, and if its below 5% of
the normal body fluid level, you will have mild fever, and if its below 10% of water level, you will turn blue and not
to be able to move anymore! It is very important that we always stay hydrate in all times.

Water works the best to maintain hydration

Drinks contain caffeine such as coffee, tea, and coke can cause our body to dehydrate. This is because our body
needs more water (body fluid) to deal and digest with such beverages containing caffeine. This is the same to alcohol
beverages as well. Ultimately, water is the best solution to keep us in hydration at all time.

Drink right and be healthy!

To infants, 80% of body weight is made of water, about 60% of water for adults, and body fluid reduced to about 50%
of body weight for elders. That’s why it has been saying that "a person can survive without food for 7 days, but can not
survive not even for 3 days if we don’t drink water". When our body loses more than 10% of our body fluid, we will get
sick, and when if we lose more than 20% we will be in great threat to life. Averagely, a person needs 1c.c per minute
of water, so we should drink plenty of water per day, 1500cc or more, to keep us in good working condition. (For the
market common cup capacity 250cc conversion need to drink 6-8 cups a day).

Medical experts have suggested that patents with urinary tract infection and kidney stones are best to drink 3000cc
of water or more a day, and urinate as much as possible to maintain in healthy state. I have met a 17 years old young
man in the Great Lakes with kidney stones, and a 23 years old young man with diabetes with blood sugar level high up
to 917 mg/dl. Patients with gout even go down to 12-13 years old nowadays. These diseases are closely related with
our daily diet from carbonated drinks, sugar drinks, and alcohol beverages.
