Water for the body – UKV filtered water is vital

Water is a human necessity. Without food, a person can survive weeks. Without water, the odds of surviving more than a few days are not good.

In fact, approximately 70% of the human body is water. The only thing more important than water to the human body is oxygen.

Water serves several purposes within the body including:
• Maintains body temperature
• Aids in digestion
• Metabolizes fat
• Lubricates organs
• Cushions organs
• Transports nutrients
• Flushes out toxins
The body excretes water constantly through sweat, urine and exhaled air, which is why it’s so important to replenish your body with an ample amount of water every day. Most health professionals agree that the average human body requires from 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.

Every part of the human body depends on adequate hydration to function properly: from your skin to the brain. The following is an examination of the body and its need for water:

  • Skin -Without water, it becomes dry and cracked. It is also the main conduit for releasing water from the body.
  • Joints and Bones – Water acts as a lubricant between bones. Without water, bones may rub against each other and become brittle.
  • Blood – It thickens when the body’s lacking water, which makes it difficult for the heart to pump and distribute blood to the rest of the body. Plus, capillaries shut down creating obstacles for nutrients circulating to vital organs.
  • Kidneys – Without water, the kidneys are unable to remove toxins, wastes and salt from the blood. The risk of kidney stones also increases.
  • Liver – Metabolizes fat. But if the body’s not getting enough water, it has to perform some of the kidney’s functions, which means it’s not metabolizing as much fat as it should.
  • Digestive System – When the body’s dehydrated, the organs of the digestive system have to work harder than normal and become strained, which results in constipation and abdominal cramps.
  • Brain – Without water, the body will experience a loss of nutrients flowing to the brain. Temporary results are dizziness, confusion and irritability. Long periods of dehydration can cause permanent damage to the brain. Water also cushions the brain, which means, if the body is dehydrated, the brain is more vulnerable.
