“Our bodies are approximately 60 percent water and require about two quarts of fluids daily to stay well-hydrated and maintain healthy organ function. Not drinking enough fluids causes toxins to build up in the body, and dehydration is a common cause of fatigue. About half of your need for fluids is provided in the foods you eat, especially if you eat plenty of vegetables and fruits. Pure spring water or filtered water is the best option for supplying the rest of the fluids your body needs. Get into the habit of drinking four to six glasses of water daily, preferably between meals.” (p. 267)
