Green Tea the same as drinking water
No. We can get water from foods and other drinks except any that have caffeine or alcohol in them. These actually dehydrate us and do not count towards water intake. In fact extra water must be consumed to offset the dehydrating effects of the caffeine and alcohol. The 6 - 8 glasses is outdated and inaccurate. The body actually uses at least 8 glasses of water. For proper health and hydration we need 1 ounce for every 2 pounds of body weight plus 8 more ounces for every 20 minutes of exercise/activity we do. With hot/dry days and climates even more is needed.
first of all, the 6-8 glasses a day of water is a myth. no one can prove that to be true. And green tea contains substances that help your body, like antioxidants, egcg, and theanine. water only hydrates your body which is good too, but tea does that also
