Seventy percent of our body is made of water. Most of our vital organs depend on water to flush out toxins and carry nutrients to our cells.
The appropriate quantity of drinking water varies from person to person, is 30 – 35 mg/kilo. For example, if your weight is 6 0 kg, you must drink at least 2 liters of water daily. And if you do not drink enough quantities, you may suffer from the following symptoms:
- The appearance of pimples on the skin.
- The appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
- Weakness and breakage of hair and nails.
- Difficulty losing weight.
- Problems in the scalp, such as dandruff.
- Muscle and joint cramps.
- Problems with digestion and clotting.
- Kidney problems.
- Feeling tired and low in energy.
- Increased exposure to sunburn and dehydration.
If you do not enjoy drinking water, you can resort to changing the taste of the water by adding a slice of lemon and keeping a small bottle of water by your side always to motivate yourself to drink the required amount.
