While studies report different amounts, the general consensus among health professionals is that the average person should drink at least eight cups of water a day.
Beyond the dangers associated with dehydration, drinking more water can ward off these ailments:
• Dry mouth – Drinking water prevents dry mouth, which can cause bad breath.
• Achy joints and muscles – Water lubricates bones and joints, helping with aches, pains and strains.
• Appetite – Drinking water can curb hunger. In fact, many confuse being thirsty with being hungry.
At PA Health & Wellness, we know it’s easy to take water for granted. Don’t forget to drink up.
