The Liquid of Life [Infographic]

    We’ve all heard that you should drink approximately eight glasses of water per day. This recommendation has been told to us repeatedly since grade school. However, modern research indicates that the amount of water you should drink can vary greatly based on your height, weight, gender, location, general health, and level of activity.

    The Institute of Medicine recommends roughly 13 beverages a day for men and 9 beverages a day for women. But that is an approximation – only by inputting your information into a hydration calculator can you start to get a clear picture of your personal water needs.

    Were you surprised about your Pelican Water hydration calculator results? If you’re regularly consuming less water than your results indicated you might be wondering exactly why you need to be drinking so much water in the first place. Three-fourths of the population is chronically dehydrated and seems to be doing just fine. You’ve never passed out because you’re not drinking your recommended amount of water – what’s the big deal?

    What you may not comprehend is the necessity of water for many aspects of your health and wellbeing. Drinking water isn’t just about staying hydrated – the amount of water in your body affects how you look and feel, from the glow of your skin to the efficiency of your brain. Many serious health conditions have been linked to chronic dehydration.
