Water is the essence of life. About 70 percent or two-thirds of our body weight is made up of water. Our blood contains (83%); muscles (76%), brain (80%), lungs (79%) and bones (20%) contain this vital element water, which is essential for the smooth functioning of all bodily functions.
You need to drink water to replace the normal fluid loss from urine, sweating, stools and breathing. The loss of fluid is accentuated during exercise, illness and in a warm climate. If your water intake does not match the output, then you will be dehydrated. Also since water has no fat, sugar, calories or carbohydrate, it is an ideal choice to replenish the loss of body fluids.
