Where do I get the water I need?

Most of your water needs are met through the water and beverages you drink. You can get some fluid through the foods you eat. For example, broth soups and other foods that are 85% to 95% water such as celery, tomatoes, oranges, and melons.

What does water do in my body?

Water helps your body with the following:

- Keeps its temperature normal.

- Lubricates and cushions your joints.

- Protects your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues.

- Gets rid of wastes through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements.
