There is probably nothing out there that can be classified as an essential and necessary nutrient more rightfully than water. For most people, it is abundant and easily accessible which is why we take it for granted. For the same reason, many of us do not understand the critical aspect of adequate hydration. Throughout our whole life, water is the main ingredient of our body. It serves many functions like regulation of body temperature, flushing of waste and toxins, nutrients and oxygen transporter, as part of blood flow.
- A person can survive about two months without food, but only a few days without water.
- Water is an important part of your daily bodily functions, so it is important to continually replenish it.
- Do not wait until you feel thirsty. It may already mean that you may be slightly dehydrated.
“Water is the most abundant ingredient in the human body through all phases of growth and development. Every system in your body depends on water to function.”
