  • Water and your health

    Water is good for your health but do you drink enough?

    Adults are recommended to drink around two litres of water a day, equivalent to six to eight glasses.

    6 glasses of water

    Drinking the recommended amount of water each day can help you to:

    • stay fit and healthy
    • concentrate better  
    • avoid headaches  
    • have healthier skin and fresher breath
    • prevent bladder and bowel problems  
    • protect your teeth from tooth decay  
    • relax and sleep well at night  
    • have more energy and feel less tired  
    • perform better at sports or exercise.

    Tap water tastes better when it is served fresh and cool. Keep tap water in a jug in the fridge for an instant cold drink.

    Remember that water kept in the fridge should have a lid and should not be kept for more than one day. Adding a little ice or chilling the water in the fridge will help to take away any chlorine taste.
