How Much Water Is Required Daily?

Under normal conditions, the body loses approximately 12 glasses of water daily.  The human body

  • Breathing takes about 1-1/3 

  • The intestines use about 1/2

  • The lungs take about 2

  • The skin uses 2

  • The kidneys use 5-1/2

Your body contains from 55% to 78% water; depending on your body size.  

The body requires between one and seven liters of water per day to avoid dehydration.  

The amount depends on the level of activity, temperature, humidity.
