How much should you drink every day?

How much should you drink every day?

If you type the same in google, you will get 1000 of suggestions. Few will suggest drinking 8 liter of water is only good for health. Few others would suggest, if you drink more water, your kidney will keep functioning and fail soon (WTH!?)
But one thing is clear; drinking 8 liters of water is really dangerous. I feel, an 8-ounce glass is only interpreted as 8 liter of water.

Lack of water may lead to dehydration and excess of water intake may lead to kidney problems. Drinking right amount of water is extremely crucial. There are various factors needs to be considered .Your Age, weight, height and your living location like tropical or cold.
Here is an excellent website from H4H initiative to let you know how much water you should intake in a day. just input your weight, Height, Age, County, Consumption details, and few more details and click on "Set your liquid intake". It will display your accurate water intake

Know your water intake and drink accordingly.  That's a very simple step towards a healthier lifestyle.

Also, Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body
(Below information From A Cardiac Specialist!)
  • 2 glasses of water after waking up - Helps activate internal organs
  • 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal -Helps digestion
  • 1 glass of water before taking a bath - Helps lower blood pressure
  • 1 glass of water before going to bed - Avoids stroke or heart attack
Happy Drinking!!!
