Our Bodies And Water
 
 
The water we drink does not merely pass through the body.
 
Water is the major component of the body. From 60 to 70 percent of what we are is made of water. The quality of your tissues, their performance, and their resistance to injury, is absolutely dependent on the quality and quantity of the water you drink.
 
Why Is Water The Most Important Nutrient In Your Body?
 

These basic facts of biochemistry emphasize the first nutrient and the most essential nutrient: Plain, simple water.

But, and it's a big but, it needs to be clean, pure, and free of contaminates. In our modern world, the best choice of pure, clean water is steam-distilled water. Since almost 75% of our body is composed of water, it needs at least 8-10 glasses per day to replenish water lost through excretion and perspiration. Blood is known as the fluid of life. Water is also known as the fluid of life. Pure water makes purer blood, and healthier blood.

Since almost three quarters of the human body is made up of water, and the body loses water daily through excretion and perspiration, we have to keep drinking or become dehydrated.

 
Normally, we lose about one and one-half pints of water daily in perspiration and two to five pints through the kidneys and bowels. A loss of five percent body water can bring us close to collapse. A loss of ten percent can bring us close to death. Water controls the body's temperature, provides essential nutrition by transporting nutritive elements from the food we eat to our cells, carries away waste products, and is the medium in which all intracellular changes occur. Good health requires good water for transmission of food. The water we drink does not merely pass through the body. After it is absorbed, it circulates through the veins and arteries performing countless functions necessary for life.
