Water is crystalline, water is energy, it is memory, it is life. The single most important ingredient to the potion of life. Without water, there would be no people, no animals, no plants. At first glance, it is an unexciting and simple flavorless liquid crystalline structure. Yet, its secrets, studied for decades, have led to an outstanding discovery of how beneficial the water truly is for our health and existence. Present throughout the universe, water is the cornerstone of life and necessary for survival. Life developed in the oceans and, through evolution, a part of it adapted to life on land.
Over the entire course of evolution we never left the water since we carry it in our bodies.
We are water
99% of molecules in the human body are water. Our body is approximately 70% water, our brain is comprised of up to 80% water, whilst our blood and plasma is 90% water, teeth are 10-13% water, kidneys 83%… Water is the key constituent part of cells, tissue and bodily fluids.
Staying Hydrated – Staying Healthy
The secret of life lies in proper cell nourishment, and the ability of cells to dispose of waste and toxins. In order to be able to receive the necessary nutrients, cells are in constant contact with water. Water regulates metabolism, digestion, blood circulation, cell reproduction, it boosts the body’s immune system, carries information throughout the body and maintains core body temperature. Our health and ageing are directly linked to the water content in our bodies.
Over 70% of people suffer from chronic dehydration, while more than 30% have a malfunctioning thirst mechanism, with the feeling of thirst being mistaken for hunger. Each dehydration event slows down the body’s metabolism. The smallest shortage of water causes fatigue. For that reason, water should be drunk even in the absence of thirst. Water is life so stay hydrated.
