The body's drinking water consists of:

  • 85% of the blood
  • 75% muscle

What else is drinking related to?

Not only is it an essential part of the body, but it also has other functions:

  • Hydrates oxygen for breathing
  • Helps convert food into energy
  • Helps the body absorb nutrients
  • Important for proper absorption of water-soluble vitamins
  • Removes waste from the body

How to ensure adequate drinking

How to ensure a sufficient drinking regime? Keep a water bottle with you at all times. Try to drink at least 1 to 2 litres of water a day. You can flavour your water with citrus fruits or herbs to improve the taste.
