11. Water has a memory
Along with its endless useful properties, water is supposed to have memory. Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto has been experimenting with water exposed to music, spoken word, photographs, thoughts, and words written on paper and attached to a glass vessel for years.
During his scientific work, he has taken over 10,000 photographs, some of which have been published in his famous books "The Messages from Water" and "Water knows the answer."
12. The amount of water to be taken per day is individual.
There are many suggestions and recommendations regarding this fact.
Research recommendations are mostly about eight glasses of water a day, but the most important thing is to listen to your body.
For every kilogram of body weight, we should take somewhere between 30 and 40 ml of water.
If you weigh 50 kg, then you will need 1.5 - 2.0 l of fluid per day approximately while if your weight is around 70 kg, then, in this case, you will need 2.1 - 2.8 l of fluid per day (70 x 30 ml = 2100 ml; 70 x 40 ml = 2800 ml).
At the End
If you don't like the taste of pure water, you can always add a slice of lemon, squeeze a lime, add a few mint leaves, or a slice of cucumber to taste - or whatever will make you drink more water.
