Importance of Water

  • Cell life
    • Water is a carrier, distributing essential nutrients to cells, such as minerals, vitamins and glucose.
  • Chemical and metabolic reactions
    • Water removes waste products including toxins that the organs’ cells reject, and removes them through urines and feces.
  • Transport of nutrients
    • Water participates in the biochemical break-down of what we eat.
  • Body temperature regulation
    • Water has a large heat capacity which helps limit changes in body temperature in a warm or a cold environment. Water allows the body to release heat when ambient temperature is higher than body temperature (1). The body begins to sweat, and the evaporation of water from the skin surface very efficiently cools the body
