WATER!

The human body is made up of a number of things... organs, muscle, bones and WATER!

Up to 60% of the body is actually WATER!

Your body needs water to perform essential functions to keep us going, for example:

  • it is a vital nutrient to the life of every cell, acts first as a building material.

  • it helps to regulate our interval body temperature through sweating and respiration.

  • The carbs and proteins that our bodies use as food are metabolized and transported by water in the bloodstream

  • acts as a shock absorber for the brain, spinal cord and a fetus during pregnancy.

  • forms saliva to start the digestion process

  • it assists in flushing waste through urination

and lubricates the joints.

According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.
