What is the effect of water on our body?

it rehydrates our cells and stuff like that without it we would die

dear, u cant imagine a life without it.

Functions of Water in the Human Body


The human body is two-thirds water. Water is essential nutrient that is involved in every function of the body. It helps transport nutrients and waste products in and out of cells. It is necessary for all digestive, absorption, circulatory, and excretory functions, as well as for the utilization of the water-soluble vitamins. It is also needed for the maintenance of proper body temperature.

Water must be continuously replaced since on average 250ml is lost on a daily basis through breathing. Nutritionists have difficulty in suggesting an exact daily requirement because the amount of water required will vary depending on the on the climate and whether any type of activity is undertaken. By drinking an adequate amount of water each day-at least eight glasses (2 litres) -you can ensure that your body has all it needs to maintain good health.

Your fluid needs might be double or even triple that amount when you work out for more than an hour in the heat. Even on cool days and shorter workouts, you still need to drink more than nonathletes.

You can live without food for several weeks, but you can go less than a week without water. The best way to get this water is by drinking plain water. But other beverages, such as fruit juices, milk, and noncaffeinated drinks are also good sources of water. Fruits and vegetables can also be good sources of water.

Caffeinated and alcoholic beverages, while they do supply water to the body initially, contain diuretics that cause the body to lose water.

It would appear that most people do not drink enough water. The classic signs and symptoms include:

Poor concentration
Increased risk of developing kidney infections, and
It is almost impossible to drink to much water, although if large volumes of water are taken in a short space of time it can provide short lived symptoms similar to being drunk

On the outside or the inside? Hot or cold. Polluted or clean? Fresh or salt? Steam bath or pouring rain. You need to be specific.

It keeps us away from dehydration

From a personal standpoint? You have to have it our bodies are 90% water, you would die of dehydration, it helps with cleansing your system, gets rids of wrinkles, frees our brains... from an esoteric standpoint? think of Water and you think of rain, of a river of the ocean, of a pond or a lake. Are you calmer now? The sprinklers in my complex go off everynight at this time...if I'm not asleep by now, that's what lulls me to sleep.

Water, after oxygen, is the second most important substance for human health. Water is a universal solvent and transport medium, and because of that it is the basis of all biological processes in the human body.
Water is mainly important for the digestive system, because it contributes to the constant supply and export of products and substances. The transport of nutrients can only take place through a solvent, and as such water acts as the main transport medium of nutrients.
Water also attends heat regulation in our bodies. For humans it is of vital importance that the body temperature stays at a standard level. That is why we have to drink water, when we are infected with a fever. Water takes up heat and transports it out of the body while we are transpiring.
We can survive without food for about 30 to 40 days, but we can only survive a few days without water. This is a factor that proves how important water is for us.
