Drinking liquids is a fundamental part of staying healthily and keeping the body fully functioning. Some of the liquids will come from food, but not sufficient amounts; the body will need extra intake. Since it is not only water that is lost by the body throughout the day, soft drinks can play an important role; providing other elements, such as vitamins, minerals and energy, which water alone will not provide.

On average, a human being needs a daily intake of somewhere between three to six litres of water to function normally, and replace the fluids lost through sweating, breathing and going to the bathroom. The exact amount will vary according to variables such as the weather, the amount and type of food being eating and the amount of energy being expended.
