Becky’s Immunity Boosting Tip Number 3: Hydration!
Another super simple yet extremely important way to keep your immune system working well is to STAY HYDRATED with water
Healthy Immune systems need hydration to keep all of the body systems working. The amount of water in the human body can range from 50-75%, so that gives us an idea how important water is to the body!
Adequate water hydration helps to oxygenate the blood found in our body, and that pumps up our cells in order to function at full capacity. Cells working at full capacity will do the best job of fighting germs, bacteria, and viruses. https://hydratem8.com/health/can-water-improve-immune-system/

So how much water should we be drinking? Conventional theory says a person should drink 8 8oz glasses per day. However, it really does vary depending on your body weight, lifestyle, health status and of course the weather where you live. Check with your medical professional about how much water you should be drinking every day.
