Newsletter Excerpt: Getting Enough Fluids
It’s important for your body to have plenty of fluids each day. Water helps you digest your food, absorb nutrients from food, and then get rid of the unused waste. Water is found in foods—both solids and liquids, as well as in its natural state.
With age, you might lose some of your sense of thirst. To further complicate matters, some medicines might make it even more important to have plenty of fluids.
Remember, water is a good way to add fluids to your daily routine without adding calories.
The information contained in this article is not a substitute for medical advice or treatment. Consultation with your doctor or health care professional is recommended. Information provided by National Institute on Aging at https://www.nia.nih.gov.
