We all know that water is one of the best healing elixirs for any ailment. It helps to flush out toxins from our body and enable it to function. While it is always recommended to drink at least 8-12 glasses of water daily, there is a possibility that excessive water intake can also lead to certain health problems. You heard right! Drinking too much water in a short amount of time can cause hyponatremia or water intoxication, a condition that can be fatal if left unattended.
Various studies indicate that our kidneys can only filter and remove about 20 to 28 liters of water per day. But then they cannot expel more than 0.8 ml to 1.0 L per hour. Thus, to avoid the symptoms of hyponatremia, you need to consume on average no more than 0.8 ml per 1.0 L of water per hour.
The total amount of water consumed per day, which is considered healthy for people of different age groups, looks like this:
AMOUNT OF WATER FOR DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS
Everything depends on everything. How much do you move, is it hot outside. It is necessary to compensate for the loss of fluid in the body - this is the main thing.
There is a simple formula for calculating the daily water intake by weight, for example, I weigh 45 kg, highly active is my norm 1.75 liters per day
I'll leave a sign for you, save, remember:
2 liters a day is a common myth. A person should drink as much as he wants to drink. No need to force water into yourself. There are also some nuances: -We consume liquids from food. -In hot weather, naturally, you need to drink a lot. Especially when you move in the heat. -People have different body weight, different fatigue, individual characteristics. -Some people just like to drink water, while other teas are driven. -Drinking (alcohol) people need drink more water in the morning. There is no question of any daily rate. The main thing is to get rid of dehydration. -Location and climatic conditions also play a role.
Well, in general, you just need to "listen" to your body. He himself will "tell" when and how much to drink. Well, and evaluate what conditions you are in.
