3. Helps maintain body temperature. 

 

4. Helps with digestion and the creation of saliva.

 

5. Helps with cognitive performance when engaging in vigorous exercise that may cause dehydration.

 

6. Helps keep skin moisture and water helps keep the skin from being dry.

There is only a guideline to drink eight glasses of water a day, but it is not based on scientific evidence. 

Water can come from plain water, other fluids or foods.

 

Moreover,  think of water as a nutrient that your body needs.
