Water and Your Body

The human body contains between 55-75% water depending on the ratio of body fat to muscle.

  • The human brain is 75% water,
  • Blood is 92% water.
  • Muscles are 75 % water
  • Bones are 22% water

Water is vital for body temperature regulation, therefore fluid replacement is extremely important. During hot weather, your body requires even more fluid to maintain it’s normal body temperature.

What is Enough Water?

Dieticians and Nutrionists generally recommend drinking 8 glasses of water per day to keep your body adequately hydrated.

Whilst this might seem a lot, if you keep a drink bottle near your desk or grab a cup of water from your water cooler during your coffee / tea breaks you will find you can make the 8 glasses per day target.
