Drinking water often helps to maintain a healthy balance.

Mild dehydration can decrease one’s energy level and mental functioning and increase stress on the body while severe dehydration can have far more damaging effects.

To avoid dehydration drink at least eight glasses of water every day as an adult.

The importance of water to the mechanics of the human body cannot be overemphasized. It serves as a lubricant to the digestive system and all other body processes.

The water in our saliva helps facilitate swallowing, ensuring that food slides easily down the esophagus. It also lubricates and allows edibles to move more freely.

The body cells and organs depend on water for their functioning. Without water, living things, including humans will die in a few days.

So, when you don’t drink enough water, the underlisted side effects happen.
