Your body is about 60% water, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that you need water to keep things running smoothly. Water-based bodily fluids, lubricate digestion, assist in absorption, aid circulation, create saliva, maintain your body temperature through sweat and transport nutrients throughout your body.

Other benefits of drinking water include:

  • Flushing toxins from your body
  • Keeps your digestion running smoothly and helping you avoid constipation and bloating
  • Lubricates your joints and hydrates your muscles to make exercise easier, prevent injury and prevent cramping

So how much water do you need? Dieters often hear about 6 to 8 cups a day, but according the The Institute of Medicine, that represents the minimum. The Institute of Medicine says, the amount of fluid you should take in daily, should range from 13 cups a day for men and 9 for women.
