The importance of staying hydrated
Stay hydrated gradually, throughout the day. Drink fluids, or eat water-rich foods.
A healthy person needs 30 to 50 ounces of fluid per day.
Drinking fluids is crucial to staying healthy and maintaining the function of every system in your body, including your heart, brain, and muscles. Fluids carry nutrients to your cells, flush bacteria from your bladder, and prevent constipation.
