Water – Essential to Life

I cannot stress this enough, your body needs water! Each day, on average, you lose some two quarts of water that is eliminated through the skin, lungs, intestines, and kidneys. Just by exhaling you lose about one pint of liquid a day. How much more so with sweat from exercise or exertion?

Replacing this water is essential to prevent being dehydrated.  Waiting  until you’re thirsty to drink is too late,  you are already dehydrated. And it is not just your mouth that feels the effects of a lack of water!

Inadequate water consumption wreaks havoc on your whole system, especially during exercise/activity. You need water to carry nutrients to your cells, remove toxins, lubricate joints and your colon, to regulate metabolism and body temperature among other important functions.

Dehydration can also cause mental confusion. Your brain, which is  mostly water, is extremely sensitive to any dehydration or depletion of water content.

Those of you who are prone to water retention may think the solution is to reduce your water intake. Quite the contrary, when the body experiences a water deficit, it actually works hard to hold on to every available drop, storing it in such places as the feet, the hands, and the legs. Give your body what it needs—enough water. And remember, the more salt you eat, the more water you will retain to dilute it.

Water is essential for a healthy body and you cannot live without it. A man can live about a month without food, but, he will die in about a week without water.

Since the human body is composed of 80% water, do you think it is important to keep it that way? Was this just some fluke, a random act of evolution or could it be a purposeful act of creation? When is the last time you had a full glass of water?
