HEALTHCARE TIP OF THE MONTH - LIVE A HEALTHY DAY!
THE IMPORTANCE OF HYDRATION! DID YOU KNOW ?
The amount of water a person should drink depends mostly on the individual weight and level of activity. The equivalent of eight glasses a day is recommended water intake for the average person. About 20 percent of this water comes from daily food intake. The rest should be obtained from water directly or other beverages. If you exercise strenuously or are overweight your need for water is greater. Keep in mind that sodas and other sugary drinks can also add unwanted calories. The human body is made up of 70% of water. People who live in areas at a high altitude, with high temperatures or in dry conditions, need more water. Drinking too little water can cause dehydration which occurs when the amount of water leaving the body is greater that the amount being put back in. When a person is dehydrated, he or she may develop muscle cramps and become light headed. Poor hydration can also result in older looking skin.
BE WELL STAY HEALTHY!
