There are numerous types of fluids in which the best one is water. Water is a basic necessity for human body. It carries nutrients and oxygen to all the cells of the body. It even helps in removal of certain harmful substances. In addition to this, water also helps in maintaining one's body temperature. It creates a balance of the fluid content in our body. 2-3 litres of water consumption per day is necessary in order to get all these benefits.
