Water 101: How Much Water Does Your Body Need?

You’ve heard the facts: The human body is made up of approximately 80% water. Water is made of hydrogen and oxygen. We need clean water to survive. But when it comes to your day-to-day life, are you getting enough water, or are you forcing your body to run on empty?

Without enough water, your body doesn’t function as well as it should. Some possible effects of drinking too little water include:

  • Feeling tired
  • Being unable to concentrate
  • Lacking energy to do everyday activities
  • Headaches

Many adults feel these symptoms every day, and don’t even realize that they’re really suffering from dehydration. Hydrating your body can make a huge difference in the way you feel—no prescriptions required.

Water needs vary for every person, so no one-size-fits-all recommendation will work for everyone. But these are a few approximations you can make safely:

  • Men need roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of water per day.
  • Women need about 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of water per day.
  • You probably need to drink more water if you’re sweating a lot (due to exercise or a hot climate) or feeling ill.

We do ingest some water through food, and all liquid beverages do contribute somewhat to overall hydration. But there’s nothing like pure water to replenish your immune system and get your body functioning at its highest level.
