The body’s most important nutrient!
Water is by far the most important nutrient that your body requires to operate and survive. For general health, the average person should consume 64-128oz of water daily. Athletes require 128oz+ daily as they tend to sweat out and utilize more water throughout the day. Unfortunately, we all tend to fall into a rut in which our daily water intake is lower than normal. The colder months are notorious for lowering our water intake as most people do not feel as though they need to drink as much water considering the cooler weather and lack of sweating throughout the day. With a lack of water comes reduced exercise intensity, reduced strength, increased fatigue, weakened immune system, and much more. Drinking enough water throughout the day will ensure that your system is adequately hydrated, nutrients are being shuttled into your muscles, your immune system is running at full capacity, and that you are recovering optimally from exercise.
