How much water should people drink? The age-old question is asked and answered regularly by water companies, nutritionists, doctors, and governments across the world. At WaterMonster, keeping you hydrated is our goal, but how much is the right amount?
Water, as with other substances, is necessary for all life on Earth. Humans can survive for several weeks without food, but for only a few days without water. A constant water supply to the human body is needed to replenish the fluids lost through normal physiological activities, such as respiration, perspiration, and urination. Furthermore, water is a key element in the growth and maintenance of our bodies, due to the reliance of a number of biological processes on it to continue working. Drinking enough water is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. One way we like to ensure everyone drinks more water is through the use of our bulk water dispenser. As stated before, hydration is our game. We aim to supply outdoor events with the water needed to keep participants healthy and happy. Our bulk water dispenser does just this. With enough room to hold several gallons of water, our dispensers meet everyone's hydration needs.
How much water should I drink?
It is generally estimated that the average adult within the US should try to drink six to eight glasses of water per day or up to two liters. The body should also absorb extra water from a healthy diet containing fruit and vegetables. The source of this water is not a crucial factor although the use of a bulk water dispenser within an outdoor event will encourage people to drink more water. We would of course recommend our bulk water dispenser along with the addition of a touchless spout or foot pedal for extra safety during this summer get-together season.
People still hydrate without drinking water
Of course, the body gets water not only from drinks but also through food. Some fruit and vegetables have high water content such as melons, apples, oranges, pineapples, tomatoes, carrots, and grapes. Therefore, to get a balanced view of how much water people should drink, we would need to look carefully at the general diet of the individual.
Living conditions may change the optimal amount of water
The exact amount of water a human needs also depends on the condition of the subject, the amount of physical exercise, and the environmental temperature and humidity in which the individual functions. We can make general statements on ideal water consumption levels if we look at general weather/humidity factors in a certain area of the world – but the individual needs will ultimately be governed by the lifestyle and actions of each human. For further information on the health benefits of drinking enough water the CDC (Center for Disease Control) has excellent resources.
With the bulk water dispenser, we at WaterMonster aim to provide the thirst-quenching satisfaction everyone deserves while out and about this season. Remember to stay safe, stay healthy, and stay hydrated.
