Did you get your 8-10 cups of water today?

The adult human body is made up of up to 60% water. Some specific organs are made up of even more water. As one can imagine, there can be negative consequences from dehydration. In addition to being a refreshing zero calorie option, the CDC reports that “drinking water can prevent dehydration, a condition that can cause unclear thinking, result in mood change, cause your body to overheat, constipation, and kidney stones.”
