Stay Hydrated, Stay Healthy
- The average human loses between 3 and 6 liters of water on a
typical day. One to two liters rushes out as urine, and another
one-tenth liter in defecation. Water lost as vapor when you breathe

day, but that amount can reach 1 to 2 liters per hour in an intense
But if you're dehydrated, that super gulp won't give you the quick fix you dream of. The body can only absorb about 1 quart per hour. Drink plenty of clean and filtered water throughout your day, every day. How much? A good rule of thumb is to drink enough water to equal 1/2 your body weight in ounces. For example: a 150 lb. person needs 75 ounces of water every day.
