It is highly vital for us to keep our fluid levels stable. Water provides lubrication for our joints, prevents dry eyes and mouth, facilitates swallowing, enables our bodies to absorb nutrients, aids in the elimination of toxins, and contributes to the maintenance of a consistent body temperature. The average daily water intake for an adult is about 2 litres, although this amount should be increased during periods of extreme heat, when engaging in strenuous physical activity, or both.

The average daily fluid loss for an adult is approximately three litres, with approximately one to one and a half litres lost through urine, 0.5 to seven litres lost through perspiration, 400 millilitres lost through exhalation, and three hundred millilitres lost through bowel movements. If you drink beverages like coffee, tea, or alcohol, you need to increase the amount of water you consume. Both coffee and tea include a substance that acts as a mild diuretic, which causes increased urination. On the other side, drinking alcohol can cause you to get dehydrated. Consuming more water than the amount of water that is suggested for daily consumption helps flush out toxins, which in turn leads to healthier skin, hair, and nails. However, drinking more water than the recommended amount will only result in an increase in the number of times you need to use the restroom. This does not result in the elimination of additional pollutants.

It is possible to develop a condition known as hyponatremia, also known as water intoxication, if you drink a large amount of water very quickly (more than four to six litres’ worth) because this might throw off the sodium balance in your body and lead to the disease. Because of the swelling in the brain, patients may have symptoms such as nausea, bloating, and seizures.

Dehydration is a widespread concern among the senior population. It is especially important for them to consume a sufficient amount of water if they are taking a diuretic prescription. Dehydration can cause chronic constipation, disorientation, and issues with coordination; unfortunately, these symptoms are frequently misdiagnosed as normal indicators of ageing.
