Nowadays we hear people talking about the 8×8 rule more and more often. We not only hear it on TV or in the hospital, but also in the park, at the supermarket or even at the gas station. Everyone seems to know that drinking eight 8-ounce glasses a day is a necessity if you want to stay healthy.
But is it really so? Do our bodies really need that certain amount of water every day? Or is it just an invention whose purpose is to us to be more careful what we drink?
Well, scientists have come to a stable conclusion: It does not matter how much water you drink every day, as long as your body is well hydrated and you do not feel the need to drink more.
And after all, there is no need to answer this question, we all know that the human body is able to make us aware of our shortcomings. We do not feel the need to eat when our stomach is empty? Whether we start shivering when we cold? It’s the same with water, we feel thirsty every time our body needs more fluids.
There is no point filling our body with water as there is no need for it. There is actually a big reason why we should not.
It is a known fact that could lead to more water to dehydration, and dehydration can kill you easily. But have you ever thought that too much water can also have the very effect?
In everyone’s body, there is a certain balance between the electrolytes (minerals from the blood with the liquid that carries the electrical charge) and water. Once this balance is destroyed, that person’s life in a real danger.
