The average adult should drink at a minimum 2 litres, or eight glasses, of water daily. This is no urban myth. The average adult loses over 2.5 litres of water every day. Drinking eight glasses of water only replenishes what the body naturally loses through breathing, sweating and urination (the other 0.5 litres of water is consumed in food).
The human body is composed of 50 to 75% water (depending upon sex and body type) and water is vital for the proper functioning of every organ.
