Hydrated cells are happy cells

Your body is 60 to 70 percent liquid, and every cell in your body needs water — a lot of it. For a long time, we held to this magic number of eight glasses of water a day. Now we take a more holistic view: You may need more than 64 ounces (especially if you’re very active and losing a lot of fluid through sweat), but you can also get water through high water content fruits and vegetables (all of the same ones that support cartilage and collagen). Water keeps your cells hydrated, so keep that water bottle full and take it with you wherever you go.
