We know that hydration correlates directly to health but what is the correct amount of water you should drink daily to be properly hydrated?
- Eight 8/10-oz. glasses daily?
- Half of your body weight in oz. daily
- Drink as soon as you begin to feel thirsty?
All are valid reminders of the importance of hydration. Unfortunately, they are just unsubstantiated myths of generic nature that have no real scientific merits behind them and they definitely fall short of truly helping a person properly hydrate their bodies.
Every “body” is different and daily water intake needs vary from one person to the next based on gender, body composition, physiology, age, lifestyle, and activity level.
As a result, it is no surprise that a recent study by the American Institute of Medicine claims that 75% of Americans suffer unknowingly from some degree of chronic dehydration.
