Water is a scarce commodity that can be considered a precious resource. Without water, the human brain would deteriorate.

In the health feature, registered dietician Mbali Mapholi chats to Africa about the ways in which Capetonians can stay hydrated during the drought.

Mapholi says that staying hydrated is very important as it improves kidney function, skin functionality and overall gut health.

Most fruits and vegetables contain at least 75 – 90% of water.

Mapholi says that watermelon, tomatoes, grapefruit, celery and broccoli allow the human body to absorb nutrients, she adds that these super fruits and vegetables also nourish the body.

Low fat dairy products contain about 70% of water says Mapholi. She adds that incorporating low fat products into your diet allows you to get more fluids into the system.

Red meat takes longer to digest, this means that it requires more water to digest.

To save water stored in the body, opt for a diet that mainly consists of fish and chicken.
