Wa­ter for Life!

Hair - - Colour Splash -

Sure, wa­ter has no taste or calo­ries even, yet it is vi­tal for life! Wa­ter makes up about 60% of the body weight and is nec­es­sary for dif­fer­ent bod­ily func­tions in­clud­ing di­ges­tion, ab­sorp­tion, trans­porta­tion of nu­tri­ents, elim­i­na­tion of wastes and reg­u­la­tion of body tem­per­a­ture. Wa­ter is re­quired to build body tis­sues and is the base for blood, fluid se­cre­tions (such as tears, saliva, gas­tric juices and se­cre­tions that lu­bri­cate or­gans and joints) and sweat. Given wa­ter’s es­sen­tial role in keep­ing the body func­tion­ing, one needs to drink ad­e­quate amounts of wa­ter ev­ery day to re­plen­ish wa­ter lost via per­spi­ra­tion and other se­cre­tions. If wa­ter lost by the body is not re­placed, a per­son can be­come de­hy­drated and this may re­sult in dull­ness, tired­ness, headaches and mus­cle cramps, and the skin look­ing and feel­ing dry, tight, flaky and wrin­kled.
