Water

Human beings can survive without food for 30-40 days – about 5 weeks – but without water, life would end in 3-5 days.

The average person’s body is made of approximately 70% water, although the water content varies a lot from person to person and even from one body part to another.

Your body’s water supply is responsible for and involved in almost every bodily process, including digestion, absorption, circulation, and excretion.

Water is also the primary transporter of nutrients throughout your body and so is necessary for all building functions in your body.

Water helps keep normal body temperature and is essential for carrying waste material out of your body.

Therefore, replacing the water continually lost through sweating and elimination is very important.

A drop in your body’s water content causes a decline in blood volume.

The lowering of blood volume in turn triggers your hypothalamus (your brain’s thirst center) to send out the demand for a drink.

This causes a slight rise in sodium in your blood.

These changes quickly trigger a sensation of thirst.

Unfortunately, people often drink only enough liquid to quench a dry throat – not enough to cover all their water loss.

As a result, they can become dehydrated.

As we age, the sense of thirst becomes dulled.

At the same time, we have a lower percentage of reserve body water than we had when we were younger.

This is why it’s important to drink water even when you don’t feel thirsty.

Drinking water can also help control overeating, as thirst is sometimes mistaken for hunger.

Quality water is beneficial for virtually all disorders known to humankind.

Bowel and bladder problems, as well as headaches, can be reduced by drinking water.

If you don’t drink enough water, toxins can build up in your system, causing headaches.

Water flushes out these toxins.

Anxiety attacks, food intolerances, heartburn, muscle pains, colitis pain, hot flashes, and many other discomforts and disorders can be eased quickly by drinking a full glass of water.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is another disorder requiring you to drink plenty of quality water daily to flush out toxins and other substances contributing to muscle aches and extreme fatigue.

Without adequate water, we’d poison ourselves with our own metabolic wastes.

Your kidneys remove waste products, like uric acid, urea, and lactic acid, all of which must be dissolved in water.

If there isn’t enough water available to remove these substances effectively, they may cause damage to your kidneys.

Digestion and metabolism also rely on water for certain reactions in your body.

Water carries nutrients and oxygen to cells though your blood and is involved in the regulation of body temperature through perspiration.

Water is especially important for people who have musculoskeletal problems like arthritis, or who’re athletic, as it lubricates your joints.

Because lung tissue must be moist to ease oxygen intake and carbon dioxide excretion, water is essential for breathing.

Approximately one pint of liquid is lost each day through exhaling.

If you don’t take in enough water to keep fluid balance, every bodily function can be impaired.

And the more active you are, the more water you need to drink.

Inadequate water consumption may contribute to excess body fat, poor muscle tone, digestive problems, poor functioning of many organs including your brain, joint and muscle soreness, and, interestingly, water retention.

Drinking plenty of quality water can slow the aging process, and can prevent or improve arthritis, kidney stones, constipation, arteriosclerosis, obesity, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes, hypoglycemia, and many other diseases.

It isn’t expensive, and you should feel a difference quickly, but you must drink about 10 full glasses of quality water (80 ounces) daily.

You’d think it’d be easy to get quality water.

But, due to the many types of classifications water is given, the average consumer can easily be confused about what’s available.
