If we lose more fluids than we take in we become dehydrated and the need to drink lots of water for hydration, especially when exercising and in warmer weather. Staying hydrated is especially important for kids and seniors.
The importance of drinking lots of water and staying hydrated:
Control of body temperature
Movement of nutrients and waste throughout the body
Control of blood pressure
Protection and cushion of cells, muscles, joints and organs
