Did you know that adult humans are around 60- 75 percent water and our blood is about 90 percent water? And did you know that around 70 percent of the planet’s surface is covered by water? Amazing!
Water is essential for our bodies to function properly. Water carries nutrients to all cells in our body and oxygen to our brain. Water allows the body to absorb and assimilate minerals, vitamins, amino acids, glucose and other substances. Water flushes out toxins and waste. Water helps to regulate body temperature.
Water is essential for the kidneys and other bodily functions. When dehydrated, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling.
Water helps lubricates the joints. Cartilage, found in joints and the disks of the spine, contains around 80 percent water. Long-term dehydration can reduce the joints’ shock-absorbing ability, leading to joint pain.
Water forms saliva and mucus. Saliva helps us digest our food and keeps the mouth, nose, and eyes moist. This prevents friction and damage. Drinking water also keeps the mouth clean. Water delivers oxygen throughout the body. Water cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues.
Water regulates body temperature. Water that is stored in the middle layers of the skin comes to the skin’s surface as sweat when the body heats up. As it evaporates, it cools the body.
Did you know that dehydration can affect brain structure and function. It is also involved in the production of hormones and neurotransmitters. Prolonged dehydration can lead to problems with thinking and reasoning.
The bowel needs water to work properly. Dehydration can lead to digestive problems, constipation, and an overly acidic stomach. This increases the risk of heartburn and stomach ulcers. Water flushes body waste.
Water helps maintain blood pressure. A lack of water can cause blood to become thicker, increasing blood pressure.
Our airways need water. When dehydrated, airways are restricted by the body in an effort to minimize water loss. This can make asthma and allergies worse.
Water boosts performance during exercise and water may also help with weight loss.
Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being, but many people do not consume enough fluids each day.
