Our earth’s surface is covered three fourth by Water and water
Constitute ~65% of our body. It is the basic chemical constituent
Of our life. Water is required by our body’s smallest part of the
Body and all of our activities consume water. Water plays an important role in maintaining good Health and Healthy Life. It stimulate and healing of the body.
Chemically water is a neutral chemical. All other chemicals are compared with pH Value of Water. I.e. pH Value of Water is 7. Any chemical whose pH value is less than 7 is acidic and where as the chemical whose pH value is more than 7 is Alkali in nature. It is only chemical in nature which is found in all three states of matter. Liquidate, Gas and Solid. This property makes it Versatile.
Since it dissolve almost all substance, therefore it a Universal Solvent also.
Every system is our body needs water. Content of waters –
Muscles – 75%
Blood – 82%
Lungs – 90%
Brain – 76%
Bones – 25%.
With decrease of water in the above organs our body become week. Therefore we need water in regular interval of time.
Major Functions of Water in our body are –
Regulate the Body Temperature – It is a coolant for our body. The heat capacity of water controls the regulations of body temperature through perspiration and sweating in Summer. This gives cooling effect on the surface of the body and keeps the body cool. In summer lot of intake of water compensate the loss of water through sweeting.
Moistens Tissues – Water provides a mist environment for all mucous membranes including the ear, mouth, nose and throat tissues. It lubricates joints and is the base for Saliva and all other fluids.
Protect Organs and tissues : Every Single living cell is made up water and is surrounded by water. Water acts to cushion and support organs and tissues.
Increase Overall Energy : The Chemical property of water make it the primary energizer of all functions in the body. It manufacture hydroelectric energy at the cell membranes all over the body, particularly in the neurotransmitter system. Water transfer its hydrolytic energy to elements as the are broken down so that the body can use them. Water is also the adhesive that bonds cells membranes. Therefore, it plays an all-encompassing role in energy metabolism and the physiologic functions of the body.
Cellular Transmission : Through its hydrolytic properties, it break down all the elements to their primary constituents for absorption
into the system for further use, for example, protein to amino acids, starch to sugar, and fats to fatty acids. Water dissolve minerals and other nutrients to make them accessible for transport to every cell in the body.
Cellular Communication : Thoughts, emotions, nervous system transmission thought to be transmitted by water. Making water the primary mode of cellular communication.
Excretion of Toxins : there are a number of ways the body eliminates toxins including urine, bowels, sweat, breath and menses and water is the primary constituent of them all. The Presence of water is responsible for flushing our toxins and waster products.
