Drinking Pure, Filtered Water Is Healthy for Body and Mind

The air we breath and the water we drink has a profound impact on our health and vitality. Are you leaving it up to chance as to how good the quality is of these two highly contaminated resources are?

Water helps nearly every part of the human body function efficiently. Considering that our bodies are almost two-thirds water, it is important to understand water’s role in healthy lifestyles. Consider the following breakdown of the human body:

  • About 65 lbs. of body weight is water
  • blood is 92% water
  • muscles 75% water
  • brain is 75% water
  • bones 22% water

The following are just some of the things water does in the body:

  • moderate dehydration can cause headaches and dizziness
  • water is required for breathing
  • regulates body temperature
  • carries nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body
  • moistens oxygen for breathing
  • protects and cushions vital organs
  • helps convert food to engery
  • helps body absorb nutrients
  • removes waste
  • cushions joints

The role of Electrolytes

Electrolytes are important because they are what cells (especially nerve, heart, muscle) use to maintain voltages across their cell membranes and to carry electrical impulses (nerve impulses, muscle contractions) across themselves and to other cells. Kidneys work to keep the electrolyte concentrations in blood constant despite changes in your body.

For example, during heavy exercise, electrolytes are lost in sweat, particularly sodium and potassium. These electrolytes must be replaced to keep the electrolyte concentrations of the body fluids constant. You should drink, 8-10 oz. of water 10-20 minutes before you exercise. And replace fluid every 20-30 min. when you exercise 1 hour or more. Salt tablets in hot weather, could be a big plus. Always consult with a professional, or your doctor!
