Water… you need more than you realise. Did you know your body is made up of 75% water and the brain is made up of 85% water. This means you need to be replacing and topping up your water supplies constantly. Because the body is mostly water, (2 thirds) it’s important to drink water for the body to function properly.
Water carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells throughout the body. This keeps the cells happy, healthy and alive. Along with this water aids in digestion where it helps the body absorb nutrients from food that we eat and is the base line of the body’s bodily fluid like blood and saliva which is made up of 95% water. Water has a lot of more important roles in the body including regulating body temperature, help get rid of toxins from within the body, keep skin hydrated and for protecting joints by forming fluid around them.
The kidney is one of the main organs that controls the amount of water within the body and also deals with the excess fluid through urine. The body will excrete approximately 1 litre of fluid per day which means the intake of water needs to be sufficient enough to be replace this. Although the body actually needs a lot more water than this as the Lymphatic system needs 3 litres of water alone to help flush out toxins within the body. When the body is going through a healing process the body needs a lot more water to flush out toxins, send to cells within the body so the body can heal itself on a cellular level.
