Water is essential to live,

                        but most of us are not aware of the crucial role water plays

                                                                 in virtually every organ and function of our bodies.

Water does more than sustain life. It can actually improve our health, our fitness, and even our appearance.

What Water Does

Our

   Bones consist of 22% water,

      Blood consists of 92% water, your

         Brain consists of 75% of water and our

            Muscles 75%.

 Water also:

  • Provide many of the trace minerals our bodies need
  • helps moisten our mouth, eyes and nasal passages
  • Helps keep the body cool when it is hot and insulates the body from cold
  • Is the biggest part of our lymph and blood systems, carrying food and oxygen to the cells and carrying away waste
  • Makes up the majority of every cell in our bodies
  • Acts as a shock absorber to cushion the body’s organs
  • Helps lubricate joints and is part of your blood, sweat, tears, and saliva
  • Helps flush our kidneys to get rid of toxic substances
  • Helps balance our electrolytes, which help control our blood pressure

Health Benefits

What water can do for you…

May help you lose weight.

People often mistake thirst for hunger pangs, so we tend to eat snacks, when in reality, our bodies just need something to drink. Drinking water can also help you feel full, lessening your desire to eat.

Help protect against a variety of ailments.

According to reasoned studies there may be links between high water consumption and a reduced risk of:

  • Constipation, colds, bladder cancer, kidney stones, and urinary tract infection  

May improve your appearance.

Water reaches the skin last; if your body does not get enough water, your skin will feel the effects more than any other organ. Water can help hydrate the skin, leaving it:

  • Softer, smoother, more supple and more wrinkle-free

Improve your overall health and well-being.

Water is key in achieving optimal health.

  • Water helps maintain blood volume, which maintains your energy
  • Proper hydration improves your concentration and reaction time, especially during exercise
  • Water increases the number of calories you burn during regular daily activities
  • Water can help prevent the stomach distress concentrated medicines can cause
  • Water helps rid the body of excess sodium that can cause fluid retention

Studies also show that drinking enough water may:

  • Help your body reduce fat deposits
  • Give you more energy during exercise
  • Increase the calories you burn during exercise

A variety of sources was used for this data including the Center for Disease Control, the Water Quality Association, the American Cancer Society, the American Dietetic Association, and the American Heart Association. (USA)

How Much Water

How much water should you drink each day?

How much water you should drink depends on several things: the size of your body, how physically active you are, and even the climate – because your body works hard to keep you warm or cool.

As a general guideline, the average person should drink between 1.5 and 2.5 litres (about 1.5 – 2.5 quarts) every day to replace the bodily fluids normally lost throughout the day.

Do not get dehydrated.

Dehydration occurs when your body has less water than it needs, and it is a very serious condition. When your body is just 1% below normal, you feel extremely thirsty; when you are 5% below normal, you will have a mild fever, and if you are 10% low on water, you will turn blue and be unable to walk!

Water is the best way to keep hydrated.

Caffeinated beverages such as coffee, tea, and colas actually dehydrate the body, using more water to process than they provide; alcoholic beverages do the same. Drinking purified water is the best way to stay hydrated!
