The body's daily need for water

Water is one of the main components of the body's cells. The human body, however, has no water storage capacity, unlike food, stocks of which are deposited as fat. Therefore, we must constantly provide our body with water, which allows you to maintain the thermal balance of the body, enables the kidneys to function and excrete toxins with urine, and is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Bez pożywienia jesteśmy w stanie przeżyć nawet trzy tygodnie, spalając zapasy energii zgromadzone w tkance tłuszczowej. Jeśli natomiast nie wyrównujemy strat wody, w ciągu pięciu dni następuje śmierć w wyniku odwodnienia.

Zapotrzebowanie na wodę
Około 75 procent ludzkiego ciała to woda, która jest niezbędna do życia. Organizm traci ją pocąc się i wydalając mocz, niezbędne jest więc ciągle jej uzupełnianie.
W przeciwnym razie pojawiają się objawy odwodnienia. Jeśli zaś w ciągu paru dni organizm nie dostanie wody, nastąpi śmierć.

PROTECTION AGAINST LOSS OF WATER

Even resting all day in the shade, you will lose approx 1 liter of water by breathing and urinating. Exercise increases water loss through sweating. Therefore, when we feel a water shortage, we should rest as much as possible, and the necessary physical activity should be limited to the night hours. It is best to breathe only through your nose. Smoking is not allowed. Avoid lying on hot ground. Food should be limited to the minimum necessary for survival. Avoid food containing fat and alcohol, because these foods need a lot of water to digest. Above all, you must inculcate a principle – do not wait to go looking for water until the last drop of previously accumulated supplies is depleted.
