  • 1. Do you know the human body can last weeks without food, but only days withoutwater?The body is made up of approximately 55 to75 per cent water?Water forms the basis of blood, digestive juices, urine and perspiration and iscontained in lean muscle, fat and bones?As the body cant store water, we need fresh supplies every day to make up forlosses from lungs, skin, urine and feces.Water is needed to maintain the health and integrity of every cell in the body,keep the bloodstream liquid enough to flow through blood vessels, help eliminatethe by products of the bodys metabolism, helps to flush out toxins, regulate bodytemperature through sweating, lubricate and cushion joints and carry nutrientsand oxygen to the bodys cells, just to name a few.
  • 2. The loss of body water through urination is greatly increased by the ingestion ofdecaffeinated and alcoholic beverages. These drinks have a diuretic effect,meaning they stimulate the kidneys to excrete more urine.Not only do we lose water, we also lose water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C,vitamin B (thiamine) and other B complex vitamins. For every caffeinated or alcoholic beverage you drink, you need to add an additional glass of pure water.A diet containing lots of fruits and vegetables will supply about 4 cups of water perday.Even with a diet high in fruits and vegetables, it is still necessary to drink anadditional 6 to 8 cups of water per day to supply enough water to meet the bodysdaily needs.Dehydration occurs when the water content of the body is too low. This is easilyfixed by increasing fluid intake. Symptoms of dehydration include headaches,lethargy, mood changes and slow responses, dry nasal passages, dry or crackedlips, dark-colored urine, weakness, tiredness, confusion and hallucinations.Eventually urination stops, the kidneys fail and the body cant remove toxic wasteproducts.
