Drink plenty of water

September 7th 2011

eau-vieWater is an indispensable nutrient for all our vital processes. It makes up 60 to 70% of our body weight, and we lose more than 2 liters (or 2 kilos) per day, only in order to ensure our basal metabolism.

The food that we eat, especially fruits and vegetables, takes care of 1/5 of all our needs. The remaining 4/5 must therefore be directly drunk in the form of liquid.

Remember to drink at least 8 glasses of liquid a day.

    If we 80% of our water needs are satisfied by drinking 8 glasses of liquid a day, I wonder what that says for the health of those who don’t have ready access to water. We are very lucky in Canada.
