Don’t think water consumption is a big deal? Your body is composed of nearly 70 percent water. It’s essential for your body’s systems to properly function. Water:
• Regulates body temperature
• Moistens tissues
• Protects organs
• Lubricates joints
• Prevents constipation
• Flushes out waste products
• Carries oxygen and nutrients to cells
Tip: Adults of all ages should drink a minimum of eight glasses of water daily. Children should drink six to eight glasses.
