Importance of Water for The Human Body

The importance of water in good health cannot be overstated. Next to air, water is our most vital source of survival. Our survival would not be possible without it. Water has many benefits for the human body because the brain, blood, and lungs are made up of 95% water. According to estimates, 75 percent of Americans have mild, chronic dehydration.

Despite the abundance of water, it is still frightening. Drinking water regularly has many benefits to the human body that most people are unaware of. It is necessary for working the body, just as gas and oil are essential for running a car. Here are a few things you should know about drinking water every day. Water, for instance, is necessary for all human cells and functions. Our bodies need water to make saliva, to maintain body temperature and blood circulation, to digest and absorb food, to move food through the digestive tract and eliminate waste, and to function properly.

Additionally, exercise reduces the risk of developing diseases such as bladder, colon, and breast cancers, as well as other ailments and disorders that affect our bodies. Moreover, these benefits are virtually free. For the price of a six-pack of cola, you can drink more than 4,000 glasses of tap water.


We have undervalued water for a very long time, and we haven’t had a lot of education about it. It is worth pointing out how important water is to our health. For instance, few people realize how much water the human body uses daily for breathing, digestion, elimination and sweating. Our bodies become dehydrated if we don’t replenish them every day, and this can worsen a number of health issues. Therefore, let’s determine how much water is sufficient to enjoy the benefits of water in order to prevent this situation from occurring.

There has always been a belief that eight glasses (8 ounces) of water per day is adequate, however, I would argue that for athletes and people living in warmer climates, it can be more due to the greater loss of water due to perspiration as well as the regulation of body temperature. Accordingly, I recommend drinking one cup of water per 20 pounds of body weight. In hot climates and when exercising, it can be more. You can determine this by looking at the color of your urine. Drinking enough water will result in a pale yellow color.
You can also use this water intake calculator to help determine the right amount of water recommended for your weight and height.  Remember to adjust this for activity level and your climate:


Many health conditions can be improved by drinking water every day. There are a number of factors that contribute to exhaustion, from nutrient absorption to toxins removal, circulation, angina, heartburn to hypertension (blood pressure) to immune system disorders. Kidney function is another benefit.

Filtration of waste and toxins by the kidneys depends on water. As a consequence of not consuming enough water, the kidneys will dump their work on the liver which will not function properly and will not be able to metabolize fat efficiently. Drinking more water isn’t really a matter of choice but rather a necessity. Furthermore, water contaminants have more harmful effects on the weakened immune system than they do on the healthy immune system.

 So knowing how important it is for you to consume water, you will want to drink the purest water you can get.
