I think most of us know how important water is to our overall health. I don’t always find it easy to drink water, especially in the fall and winter. I am trying to do better, but I really have to work at it.
Women should have 68 ounces of water a day (20 from food and 48 from beverages) and men should drink 84 ounces a day (25 from food and 59 from beverages). I actually get more than 68 ounces a day since I use filtered water for my coffee. I do drink a lot of coffee. Coffee is mainly water, right? I do like water with fresh lemon and sometimes with lemon and fresh peppermint.
Although I knew the importance of water to our health and beauty, this infographic really shed some light on some things that I didn’t know, like the way it affects our internal organs and sharpens memory. For this reason alone, I should be drinking more water… my memory is horrible lately.
I also know how important it is to drink filtered water but never thought about how unfiltered water exposes our skin to potentially harmful chemicals. I do remember my mom telling me to drink lots of water to flush out the impurities and to help me have prettier skin. Moms really do know best.
Check out the infographic for yourself. Maybe you’ll learn something, too…
