7 Warning Signs You Are Not Drinking Enough Water

We've all heard that the human body is primarily composed of water and that we need to consume a certain amount in order to survive. Your muscles and kidneys are composed of 73% water; your blood is composed of 83% water; your lungs are 90% water and your brain is made-up of 76% water. We lose water when we breathe and daily through urine and sweat so replenishment is crucial. Here are 7 Warning Signs You Are Not Drinking Enough Water.

1.Your Urine is Dark Yellow
This is often the first sign that you are not drinking enough water. Generally, urine should be a light yellow-amber color. When a person does not consume enough-water, the kidneys excrete a "higher concentration of waste products in the urine, including dead blood-cells, toxins, proteins and other products that need to be removed from the body", resulting in darker-urine.

2.Your Urine Output is Reduced
Most people urinate between 6-7 times within a 24-hour period. When you don't drink enough water, there is less-fluid available to replace the fluids being excreted from the body. The kidneys attempt to retain as much fluid as possible to prevent dehydration. If you urinate less than 6-times a day, consider your water-intake and increase if necessary.

3.Constipation
Dehydration is one of the most common causes of constipation, and constipation can often be resolved by increasing water-intake. If you are not fully hydrated, your body will try to absorb water from wherever it can, including your colon. A sufficient amount of water in the large intestine is crucial for soft, easy-to-pass stools. Naturally, a lack of water will lead to harder-stools that are difficult to pass.
