Drinking clean water is good for your health
Water makes up between 50-80 percent of our lean body mass. It helps maintain the appropriate body temperature (by sweating when you’re hot for example). It also helps with digestion and with the absorption of nutrients. It’s very important for our wellbeing.
Australian Dietary Guidelines aren’t overly specific with how much we should drink as this can vary from person to person, but they do state we “should drink plenty of water” (and that’s not surprising as we are living in a warm and sun-drenched continent…)
A quick search of the Internet returns the eight glasses rule!
“There are many different opinions on how much water we should be drinking every day. The health authorities commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 litres, or half a gallon. This is called the 8×8 rule and is very easy to remember.”
