Maintaining the water balance in our body is essential for our health.

We hopefully seek water beyond our planet as the only possibility for life to exist. Yet here on Earth we hardly pay attention to it.

Despite the fact that our lives depend on it, water is the forgotten nutrient in scientific research.

The evidence to determine the recommendations for water intake in relation to its effects on health is scarce. Even some food guides don’t even mention it.

The problem is that long-range studies with a large number of participants are lacking.
