The average adult’s body weight is approximately 60 percent water. The body uses water in its cells, organs and tissues to help regulate temperature and maintain other bodily functions.
As the body loses water through breathing, sweating and digestion, it becomes very important to rehydrate by drinking fluids and eating foods that contain water. Fresh fruits in particular are a great source of water.
The amount of water a person needs depends on a variety of factors including climate, physical activity and health.
In this summer heat, hydration is critical, and water is the perfect choice to “Rethink Your Drink.”
