Scientists have told whether you really need to drink 2 liters of water a day

(ORDO NEWS) — There are a huge number of different opinions regarding the use of water. Some experts say that you need to drink 8 glasses every day, while others say that only if you feel thirsty.

It is worth remembering that there are people who drink a lot of water, while others hardly force themselves, although they all know about the benefits of water for the body.

The human body is 50-70% water. It plays a very important role in metabolism and thermoregulation. Cells receive the right amount of nutrients with the help of water, the risk of blockage and infection in the body is reduced. Water also helps to conduct nerve impulses and has a positive effect on the condition of the joints.

Many experts will regularly repeat that you need to drink 8 glasses of water, or about two liters, every day. At the same time, there are some nuances. Women need less fluid than men.

An even more correct option would be to calculate the required amount of water, taking into account the fact that 30 ml of liquid is required per 1 kg of body weight.

At the same time, certain categories of people need to drink much more water than others. For example, if the weather is hot and a person works on the street, is actively involved in sports, lives in a very hot climate. The reason for this is more increased sweating and the loss of more fluid by the body.

Drinking water keeps you hydrated, but you can also get fluids from fruits and vegetables. Tea, milk or freshly squeezed juice are also considered a good alternative.

At the same time, scientists advise to carefully monitor the amount of sugar in drinks, so as not to harm your health.
