The Importance of Water Consumption


The Importance of Water Consumption

Water is by far the most important nutrient for the human body. Next to oxygen, the human body needs water in order to survive. 2/3 of the human body is water; therefore it is important to take in as much water as we can. Our bodies replace 2 ½ quarts of water each day, to keep running; and in order to stay healthy our bodies need lots of water. Regular water consumption is good for our health and diet, and is essential for many functions of the body. It is important in helping with digestion; the absorption of food, the regulation of body temperature and blood circulation, the carrying of nutrients and oxygen to the cells in the body, and for the removal of toxins. Water also helps with the movement of joints, and helps protect tissues and organs in the body. It is also good to drink water for metabolic and weight loss purposes. Drinking water metabolizes stored fats, and helps maintain proper muscle tone. Most importantly though, drinking water will prevent dehydration, which can have detrimental effects on the body. By drinking enough water, you keep a regular flow of fluids going in the body so that it can perform it's daily functions easily, and effectively.
