Water is, without a doubt, the essential source for every living thing. Compared to food, we cannot last long or function properly without water.
This includes needing to drink more water for the day.
Our bodies consist of 80% of water. It’s the minimum amount needed for our bodies to work. Humans can live without water for only 3 days.
Should we lack the sufficient minimum water needed, there are several consequences that will happen. And it will affect the way we work:
1) Constant Headaches:
When you don’t drink enough water, your brain won’t have the necessary energy to function.
Your body’s tissues, including your brain, shrink and contract when you’re dehydrated. When your brain contract, Putting pressure on your nerves makes you hurt.
2) Low in Energy:
Water keeps the organ in your body working, acting like the oil of the car. Without it, the ‘gears’ in your body won’t work.
Dehydration will cause low energy for your body to work. Not drinking enough water during the day will cause your productivity to diminish drastically and you won’t feel like working.

3) Slows Down in Metabolism
Every single bodily process requires water, so when you’re dehydrated, your metabolism automatically slows down, which also lowers your energy levels.
This will also mean that your bowel function will be difficult as there is no water to help with the process.
Making sure your body has the water it needs to function will help you feel your best.
4) Dry Mouth
The most obvious sign is that your mouth will feel dry. Your body won’t be able to produce saliva, you’ll have a hard time speaking and even swallowing because of the thirst.
And for certain, drinking water will help you quench your thirst.
5) Poor Skin
Water deficiency can result in dryness, flakiness, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin as the skin loses its elasticity and plumpness.
Water also helps eliminate toxic toxins from the body, which helps to minimize acne and other skin issues. Drink more water to look younger and to lessen or eliminate skin issues if cosmetics and skin treatments aren’t working to improve the appearance of your skin.
6) Frequent Illness
Water enhances your immune system so you are less likely to get sick and aids in flushing toxins, waste, and bacteria from the body to combat disease and infection.
To maintain your body free of toxins and operating at its best, you may need to start drinking more water if it seems like you’re constantly ill. You might be less physically active since dehydration also makes you tired, which is another risk factor for impaired immunity.
7) Bad Breath
Another reason why we need saliva, aside from the need to swallow our food, is to keep our breath in check. Water is necessary for the creation of saliva and aids in the removal of microorganisms to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
However, lack of water prevents the production of saliva and leads to bacterial buildup on the gums, tongue, and teeth, which can worsen breath. Even if you maintain decent dental hygiene, you might not be getting enough water if you consistently have bad breath.
If you want to rule out any underlying causes of foul breath, such as gum disease, type 2 diabetes, or liver or kidney issues, make an appointment with your doctor.
