H2O = WATER – the body is 60-70% water

The most precious of all liquids is water, so keeping the body well hydrated and knowing what and when to drink are essential to health

Our bodies are made up of 60-70% water and the earth is made up of 70 to 75% water.

Almost every cell and tissue of our body contains water, continually baths in fluid and requires water to function and most bodily systems need it to function.

All major processes in the body, including circulation, digestion, and elimination require the presence of water.

Natural pure water is the best source of water. If not available, filtered or bottled water may be better than tap.

The body needs 64 to 80 ounces of water a day or 8 to 10 eight oz glasses depending on your body weight.

The water contained in fruits and vegetables has been distilled by the sun and provide pure, clean, thirst-quenching, and life-giving water.

Water is best taken between means and should be sipped, not gulped down.

Water should be room temperature as iced water can be harmful to the internal organs.

Water can reduce the heat of the body in cases of fever, increase the heat of the body in cases of low vitality, cleanse the skin and tonify the body.

Water does the following in our bodies:

  • Thins and increases the blood volume
  • Manages body temperature during exercise
  • Acts as the universal solvent
  • Aids in digestion, assimilation and elimination of nutrients
