It is important to stay hydrated for good health and well-being, but many people do not drink enough fluids on a daily basis. Water makes up about 60% of the human body, and it covers about 71 percent of the planet's surface. It's possible that the abundant existence of water means that getting enough water per day isn't at the top of many people's priority lists. All of the body's cells and organs need water to work properly.
Here are some of the reasons why our bodies need water:
Saliva aids in food digestion and keeps the mouth, nose, and eyes moist. Friction and damage are avoided as a result. Water also helps to keep the mouth clean. It can also help to prevent tooth decay when consumed instead of sweetened drinks.
Dehydration may have an effect on the structure and function of the brain. It's also involved in hormone and neurotransmitter development. Dehydration for an extended period of time may cause issues with reasoning and thinking.
Water is needed for proper bowel function. Dehydration can cause digestive issues, constipation, and a stomach that is too acidic. Heartburn and stomach ulcers are more likely as a result of this.
Cartilage, which is present in joints and spinal disks, contains around 80% water. Long-term dehydration can reduce the ability of the joints to absorb shock, resulting in joint pain.
When the body heats up, water contained in the middle layers of the skin rises to the surface as sweat. It cools the body as it evaporates. In sports, for example. Some scientists believe that when the body has too little water, heat storage increases and the individual's ability to withstand heat stress decreases. If heat stress occurs during exercise, a large amount of water in the body can help to reduce physical strain. However, further research into these effects is needed.
If you drink water instead of sweetened juices and sodas, you might lose weight. By generating a feeling of fullness, “preloading” with water before meals will help avoid overeating.
Water deficiency can cause blood to thicken, raising blood pressure.
