PAGE 12 SULLIVAN SENIOR CENTER NEWSLETTER AUGUST 2021 Double down on the Water! Water, the most important liquid on the planet, makes up roughly 60% of the human body. That is why it is soimportant to stay hydrated. While there is no “real” recommended amount of water you should drink a day, mostdoctors agree that you should try and consume 8 10, glasses (64 80 fl oz.) of water each day. Some people mayneed more and some less. Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your bodyneeds water to work properly. Water keeps your skin hydrated, Lubricates your joints, Aids in weight loss, Promotes healthy kidneys, Relievesallergies and Helps maintain healthy digestion. Things to consider If you don’t drink enough water, you may become dehydrated. This means your bodydoesn’t have enough fluid to operate properly. Your urine can be an indicator if you’re dehydrated. If it’s colorless or light yellow, you’re well hydrated. If your urine is a dark yellow or amber color, you may be dehydrated.There are other signs that can signal you may be dehydrated. They include: Little or no urine, Urine that is darkerthan usual, Dry mouth, Sleepiness or fatigue, Extreme thirst, Headache, Confusion, Dizziness or lightheadedness. Different Kinds of Water Tap Water A piped water supply, tap water is found everywhere from the water that flushes a public toilet tothe water that comes out of your kitchen sink or cleans your glassware in your dishwasher. Sparkling Water Sometimes referred to as carbonated water or soda water, sparkling water is infused with carbon dioxide gas while under pressure. Purified Water Purified water is usually tap or groundwater that has been treated to remove harmful substanceslike bacteria, fungi, and parasites. This means that drinking it is pretty much guaranteed to be safe. Flavored or Infused Water Flavored water is water that’s sweetened with either sugar or artificial sweeteners,and contains natural or artificial flavorings. Be mindful of added sugar!
