As you may know, the recommended daily intake of water is around eight glasses. But do you know the role water plays in terms of your body composition?
Your body is mostly made up of water, but the percentage of your body composition that’s made from water varies depending on your individual functional needs, which are impacted by your age, gender, level of physical activity, and even where you live.
When you’re dehydrated, not only does your body lack enough fluids to meet your functional needs, but you may also experience a wide range of systems. In the early stages of dehydration, these can include dry mouth, cool skin, dizziness, and headaches.
