WATER IS LIFE
The HUMAN BODY is 65% water
The body uses water to dissolve and transport nutrients to our cells and muscles. It helps the body flush out waste products while also regulating body temperature, lubricating our joints, aiding digestion and preventing our muscles from stiffness. Water is a key element to sustaining human life.
90% of the BLOOD is made of water
So lack of water can result in low blood levels. When your body has too little blood, the heart needs to work extra hard to pump oxygen filled blood around the body. The harder your heart works, the harder your organs have to work depriving you of energy that may be needed in other areas often leaving you tired or fatigued.
75% of the BRAIN consists of water
With over 100,000 miles of blood vessels running through the brain, it depends greatly on water to thin the blood and transport minerals and nutrients to its billions of neurons. A main cause of headaches is brain dehydration. That’s why the first recommendation for a headache is always to drink a litre of pure, fresh water.
74% of adults are DEHYDRATED
Drinking the wrong kinds of liquid stimulants such as caffeinated drinks, sodas and artificial beverages often fools us into thinking we are keeping hydrated. The truth is that nothing hydrates better than pure, clean natural water. The rule of thumb is for every 25kg of body mass, you should drink one litre of water.
37% of people confuse THIRST
Instead of properly hydrating the body with a fresh drink of water, thirst is often mistakenly confused with hunger causing people to eat unnecessarily. Drinking water regularly throughout the day not only hydrates your body, but prevents you from snacking when what your body really needs is a refreshing glass of water.
The Earth’s surface is 70% covered in water
This fact has given Earth the name, ‘Little Blue Planet’. But most of the water on Earth' surface is salty, found in the seas and rivers. Only 2% of Earth’s water is fresh and ready to drink. And of that 2%, most of it is in the form of frozen glaciers. So access to clean, fresh water is a gift we often take for granted.
