How Much You Should Drink Water?

Some people said do not drink much water. Drink a cup of two only, the rules for eternal youth. There is the notion that we need to drink 8 glasses a day. Which is correct? The first opinion, is not correct. The second? Not quite right! “8 glasses a day” is more of a legend that has been accepted as fact.

Recently, American Journal of Psychology reveals that there is no scientific evidence to support the theory “eight glasses a day.” Do not misunderstand as well. Scientists are not saying we do not need water. But the advice that we take 8 glasses of water a day is not good advice.

First, we need to drink water throughout the day repeatedly. Drink 8 glasses in the morning and believe that you are drinking enough water for the day are dangerous.

Those who drank the water, even half a glass, at all hours will find themselves very energetic.

How much to drink? It depends on the weather and the activities you run. The more you lose water, the more the need to drink more than 8 glasses. But do not be drinking too much. Why then? Drinking too much water can cause water intoxication (if holding urine) or electrolyte imbalance situation.
