Are you drinking enough water?

Water is vital to humans in order for us to survive. Water is found in many foods as well as drinks so you may be taking in more than you realise but are you having enough water? Research shows that we should be drinking eight pints of water a day, which may sound a lot but when you add up all the cups of tea and squash we drink, it may be that you are having more than you think.

Really though to get the most out of water you should drink it on its own. Water can hydrate you making you have more energy and also helps your skin. The skin contains a lot of water and acts as a barrier to prevent excess water loss. If you drink too much water the kidneys will filter it out so it is always better to be overhydrated than under.
