Drink more water

As i mentioned before, 75% of our body is made up of water. Water maintains the moisture in our body for normal bodily functions and regulates body temperature . Lacking of fluid, causes dryness and disturbs the functions of organs, distribution of nutrients and digestion processes, thus affecting our health. On average an adult loses about 1-2 liters of fluids per day through perspiration, urination, breathing and bowel movements. Other factors contributing to water loss are high salt intake, exposure to chemical substances and extreme physical activities.
Its recommended that we drink at least 8 glasses of water/ day or any type of fluids will do, including fruits and juices. It's important that we replace the water that is lost to avoid any malfunctions or complications with our organs. Avoid taking too much coffee, carbonated beverages and alcohol as these drinks do not act as a fluid, they in fact do the opposite, dehydrating your body. Our kidneys needs adequate fluid to normally cleanse the blood of impurities.
Drink a glass of water upon waking up to boost the health of  your digestive system. It's proven that a glass of water in the morning promotes detoxification and improves constipation. Enough waters also gives your skin a healthy and vibrant glow.
Thirst is a minor indicator that the body is dehydrated, so when you're thirsty gulp down some water, not isotonic drinks as they may contain sugar, but its okay to be consumed once in a while. Fluids are varied in sources, among them; - tau fu far, milk, soups, fruit or veggies and their juices and teas.
