To get fully hydrated state of health, told that we need at least eight glasses a day.

Furthermore, the lack of water has been linked to everything from hunger to an increased risk of stroke. The message "drink water" is so important in this last decade.

Although there is no doubt that water is vital for numerous body functions, such as transporting nutrients through the bloodstream, and without adequate fluid, salt levels in the body can lead to brain damage, confusion and even death .
