    • LET’S GIVE IT A TRY! Water makes up approximately 60-70% of your body,and it is important for everything from temperature regulation,digestion, absorption, and blood formation to waste elimination.Water is especially important for physically active people. Aperson engaged in heavy exercise in a hot, humid environmentcan lose 1 to 3 liters of water per hour through sweating.

Youshould consume 8-10 cups of water per day through foods andbeverages. People who experience excess sweating, diarrhea,or vomiting or who donate blood may have higher waterrequirements.Powers, Scott K. and Stephen L Dodd. “Water.” Reading for Life. Ed. Corinne Fennessy.
