How much water should you be drinking each day? And what should you be adding to it? In dealing with The Fundamentals of Nutrition, Andy reminds us that we are 75% water – and that our good health depends on consuming it wisely. From regulating our body temperature to keeping our joints lubricated, and from preventing infection to helping with our digestion, the miracle of water cannot be underestimated. That said, it’s not simply a matter of guzzling down litres of water each day. Andy talks us through electrolytes and the value in getting good water into your body, in the right way.
