Essential Nutrient: Water
Water plays a vital role within the body. The body is 55-60% water, present in bodily tissues and fluids. Water is important for temperature regulation, lubrication of joints, and the transport of nutrients to active joints.
Keeping water balance in the body is essential for optimal health. Water can also help control calories, help to energize muscles, keep the skin looking good, help your kidneys cleanse and rid your body of toxins, and maintain normal bowel functions.
When we speak of water, we are essentially focusing first and foremost on all types of water, whether soft or hard, spring or well, carbonated or sparkling. Furthermore, we get water not only directly as a beverage but from food as well. The proportion of water that comes from beverages and food varies with the proportion of fruits and vegetables in the diet.
How much water do we need? The Dietary Reference Intake for water is between 91 and 125 fluid ounces (2.7 to 3.7 liters) of water per day for adults. However, how much water you need also depends on where you live, age, exercise level, and diet. To ensure you are getting enough water, lean toward more than less.
In addition to plain water, water can be obtained from juices, milk, coffee, tea, and other beverages, as well as water-rich foods including watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, peaches, oranges, skim milk, cucumbers, lettuce, broths and soups, zucchini, celery, plain yogurt, tomatoes, bell peppers, cauliflower, cabbage, grapefruit, coconut water, and cottage cheese.
