Visitor Questions
Q In trying to reach my goal of 9 cups of water a day, can I include tea, coffee, soups as well? Or do I need to only include pure water that has had nothing added to it?

Yes, tea, coffee, soup and high water content foods (e.g., melon) can contribute to your daily fluid needs. However, we recommend that you drink plenty of fresh water throughout the day for optimal hydration. Water is usually best consumed between meals if you are drinking a sizable amount (8 ounces or more). As for intake goals, the National Academy of Sciences recommends (in its Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) recommendations) about 13 cups of water each day for men and 9 cups for women.

You can learn more from this article on our website. Can you tell me more about water and why drinking it is so important to our health?
