  • Water is vital for the life of every cell in your body. You are made up of mostly water. Water allows the many chemical reactions that are going on throughout the human body. Blood is made up of mostly water. Blood carries nutrients to the cells and waste products from the cells. Water is part of every physiologic occurrence that is taking place inside your body. Without food or water intake, you'd die from lack of water, long before you'd die from malnutrition. Water is the main ingredient for any form of life. When we send space probes to distant planets and moons, one of the main experiments is to determine if water is present or was present at any time. This is because without water, no life form that we know could exist.
  • I love water. It helps flush fat.. fat cells stay, but shrink. I drink 1 gallon of water a day!
  • It's good for skin. It cleanses your immune system. Flushes everything out. I drink more than the recommended average 8 glasses a day. I have a jug from Walmart (I would buy if I were you trying to drink more water) It is the equivalent to 8 glasses of water. You drink that you are good for the day. I drink sometimes 3 of those in a day. Water is health.
  • It helps keep you hydrated and helps your kidneys.
  • we need a half a gallon of water a day in order to survive.....it keeps the salts in our body which regulate our heart beat in check, and to ensure that all of our organ's will stay healthy.......if you drink tooooo much water, it will dilute those salts and can stop your heart...but, that would mean drinking 3 gallons of water in one setting....we had a tragic case here in dallas on a radio show that was called "HOLD YOUR WEE FOR A Wii".....basically meant, drink as much water as you could in a short period of time to win a Wii game console.....without peeing........a gal drank 3 gallons of water in about an hour or so.............and, yes, she died..........the water diluted all of the potassium and sodium in her body to keep her heart pumping.......tragic.....drink at least half a gallon a day......64 ounces......take care....Brian....
  • Drink Water to Lose Weight First of all, water has no calories, is fat-free and cholesterol-free, and is low in sodium. Second, it is an appetite suppressant. Third, water helps the body to metabolize stored fat. How? Well, when the kidneys do not have enough water, they cannot function properly. The liver steps in as a backup, but doing so hinders its ability to metabolize fat effectively. The fat thus remains stored in the body, and you gain weight. Hence, as Dr. Donald Robertson of the Southwest Bariatric Nutrition Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, U.S.A., says, “proper water intake is a key to weight loss. If people who are trying to lose weight don’t drink enough water, the body can’t metabolize the fat adequately.” True, water retention is often responsible for weight gain. Hence, many who are prone to water retention think that the solution is to reduce their water intake. The contrary is true, however. When the body experiences a water deficit, it attempts to hold on to every available drop by storing it in such places as the feet, the hands, and the legs. So nutritionists recommend that we give our body what it needs—enough water. And remember, the more salt you eat, the more water you will retain to dilute it.
  • "Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids. Your body is composed of about 60% water. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature." www.webmd.com/diet/features/6-reasons-to-drink-water
  • cause we need it to stay alive
  • Because weight loss also involves water weight. I drink a gallon a day
  • Water is necessary for metabolism, protein synthesis, nutrient transport, waste removal, etc. Without water, every cell in the human body will die. If your cells die, you die. Bad news. Drink water.
  • Over half of our bodies are made up of water. It flushes out toxins through sweat, urinate, and bowel movements, carries nutrients, lubricates mucos membranes, helps create saliva, regulates body temperature, helps brain function, helps lubricate and cushion your joints, spinal cord, and tissues, Hydration also affects your strength, power, and endurance especially in the heat. If you don't have enough water when exercising in the heat you can suffer drops in blood pressure, hyperthermia, extreme dehydration, can cause seizures and even death. It aids in digestion and helps prevent constipation. It helps with nutrient absorption, helps you lose weight, and improves blood oxygen circulation. It helps prevent kidney stones, exercise-induced asthma, urinary tract infection, and hypertension. It boosts energy, aids in cognitive function, and improves your mood because dehydration causes fatigue and confusion as well as anxiety. Drink up!
