Water is the substance of life. Life cannot exist without water. We must constantly be adding fresh water to our body in order to keep it properly hydrated.
The body is composed of 70 to 80% water. There is no more important thing we put in our body. This ratio must be maintained for good health.
It is difficult for the body to get water from any other source other than plain fresh water itself.
Soft drinks and alcohol steal tremendous amounts of water from the body.
However, even other beverages such as coffee, milk and juice require water from the body to be properly digested.
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer. Water is essential for proper digestion, nutrient absorption and chemical reactions.
Water is essential for proper circulation in the body, and flexibility of blood vessels. It lubricates joints, eyeballs, nasal passages, and the intestines.
Water helps remove toxins (acidic waste) from the body, in particular from the digestive tract.
It removes wastes through the kidneys and helps solid waste pass through the intestines.
Water regulates your body's temperature, imagine a car running without water in the radiator. It cools your body by evaporation from the skin and lungs, and it throws off heat when blood is circulated near the body's surface.
Consistent failure to drink enough water can lead to chronic cellular dehydration.
This condition where the body's cells do not get hydrated enough leave them in weakened state, and vulnerable to disease processes.
Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue. Dehydration can occur at any time of the year, not only during the summer months when it is hot. The dryness that occurs during winter can dehydrate the body quicker than when it is hot, one of the main causes being central heating and a dry atmosphere in the home.
Shape – Water is chemical compound that is composed of two hydrogen elements (H) and one oxygen element(O).
Basic property - Colorless, tasteless and odorless
Basic function - Dilutes blood and other bodily fluids which prevents clotting.
It dissolves solids such as minerals and chemicals for nutrition or expulsion from the body.
Composition – Mixture of gas, minerals and pure water.
Next to air, water is an essential element for life.
The amount of water most adults need:
1) Drink half your weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 180 pounds, you need 90 ounces of water per day.
2) Or 10% of your weight in liters. If you weigh 60 kilograms you should drink 6 liters of water a day.?
Water is life
1) The fountainhead of all creation
Contemporary scientists regard water as a very important element in unraveling the mysteries of the universe and the very essence of life. Since the dawn of creation, water has played a creation, water has played a crucial role in man's very existence.
2) A source of Life Energy
Water is the only true "miraculous" substance which exists in three states "gas, liquid and solid. Water in our body generates blood, distributes nutritive elements and eliminates waste matter, controls temperature and helps digestion. Most importantly, water revitalizes body cells. It would be of great interest to note that a seven-week old embryo is composed of 95% water while a seven-week old baby is 75 to 80% water. Adults, 65 to 70% water and the aged 50%.
It is clear from these percentages that water content is an important indicator to the health of the body.
3) A gift from God
The water we drink today is the same water that has existed since life on earth began and has been recycled through the evaporative water cycle for thousands of years. Water evaporates, condenses into clouds, precipitates as rain or snow, it infiltrates the earth and percolates through to be stores underground or in lakes or the ocean. The whole cycle then repeats itself. Before the ground and air were fouled by pollution, this was a good way to clean the water and infuse it with minerals.
But now we need to reply on devices such as our excellent water ionizers to give our water the life giving qualities it should have.
