Importance Of Water: Why Water is Essential

Most people will take water for granted every day, especially those of us who live in a country where we don’t have to worry about how clean it is or when we are next going to be able to see it. We shower every day, we wash our hands every time we use the bathroom, we drink tap and bottled water whilst at work, and we clean our pots and pans every evening after use.

It’s because of the fact that we don’t have to worry about where water is coming from next that we don’t really give it much thought at all. Do you know why it’s important?

Read on for just some of the reasons for why water is extremely important.

The Body Is 80% Water

The fact that our body is made up of 80% water makes it very important. Each day, we lose around 2-3 quarts of water when we sweat, breathe; go to the toilet, or exercise. Therefore, it’s important to drink a certain amount of fluids a day to keep adding more water to replace what we lose. This is especially important for those who live in a hot country.

85% of our brain tissue is made up of water, so if we are dehydrated – both our body AND mind will be under pressure and stressed.

Water Improves Physical Performance

Your physical performance is improved greatly through drinking an acceptable amount of water each day. It increases your breathing potential and therefore allows the lungs to do a better job. Drinking water also allows your muscles to perform a higher intensity of work, by reducing the amount of glycogen.

Water also aids in weight loss – drinking ice cold water can help the body burn more calories as it takes energy for the body to warm up the water.

Industry Depends On Water

You may not know this, but industries such as those that produce metals, paper, woods, and chemicals; all heavily rely on the use of water as part of the way they operate their production. It can be used as a solvent, a coolant, an energy source, or even as a raw material.
