Water consumption

Hi. I used to drink close to 5 to 6 litres of water in an average on daily basis for past 10 years because of Gastric issue!. Now on I am getting to know that max of 4 litres should be taken. So, should I reduce to around 3.5 litres slowly or continue as my body could be used to?

Hi,there is no such limit that 4 litres should only be consumed. Water intake depends on also your weather, kind of activity you do plus your body needs. Seeing that you have high BP drinking enough water will help keep the BP stable and throw out toxins from the system. Consume as much water as your body asks you to. Hope this helps.
