Water plays a vital role in almost every function of the body! The body is made up of approximately 80% water and is essential for proper digestion. It helps remove toxins, improve circulation and regulate your body’s cooling system.
Consuming your recommended water intake is essential for living a healthy life. We can go weeks without any food but we can only survive for 3 days without any water. The bottom line is: drink more water! It is the key to a healthier life!
Lack of hydration or “dehydration” is at epidemic levels in society. Water acts as a flushing mechanism in the kidneys. On a system level, without appropriate hydration, a person’s organs are subjected to inordinate stress. Our brain, working around the clock, requires more water than any other part of the body. An improperly hydrated nervous system cannot function at optimum performance. In fact water is so important that at birth we are approximately 75% water. What is more intriguing is that by age 70 it is estimated that human water percentage can be as low as 40%! Society is living in a constant state of dehydration.
