    Adequate hydration is important for everyone, especially anyone who is undergoing cancer treatment. Fluids help the body eliminate waste, replenish body stores, promote proper muscle function, keep energy levels up, and can help reduce nausea.

    General guidelines recommend that the average person should consume at least 64 to 80 ounces of non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic beverages per day. Cancer patients may have even higher needs, depending on their disease and type of treatment. Water is the best choice, but this lemon-lime drink is a healthy alternative.
