If we don’t drink water, it will effect the human body as the human body is made up largely of water. Water is your body’s most important nutrient and it is involved in every bodily function, and makes up 70- 75% of your total body weight.

Why water is essential for your body?

By not drinking water, it won’t flush out waste that collects in our body causing countless problems. Water helps you to maintain body temperature, metabolise body fat, aids in digestion, lubricates and cushions organs, transports nutrients, and flushes toxins from your body among numerous other functions. Drinking water also helps your skin do its job of regulating your body’s temperature through sweating. Water is important for the proper circulation of nutrients in your body.

Water serves as your body’s transportation system and when you are dehydrated things just can’t get around as well. Dehydration can also lead to a rise in blood cholesterol as the blood becomes thicker causing resistance to blood flow, resulting in elevated blood pressure. This is your body’s response to prevent water loss from the cells in your body.

How does water affect the human body


What can lack of water do to the body?

In a nutshell, water depletion on a daily basis can cause tiredness, lack of energy, headaches, constipation, dry skin and chapped lips. Severe dehydration can affect blood pressure, circulation, digestion, body weight, mental abilities and kidney function.

How can I remember to drink clean, sweet tasting water?

Setting up reminders to drink water can also help. Set a timer on your phone to remind you. You can also download the app called Water Balance (there is an app for both iPhone & Android). These apps will assist you to keep track of how much water you have had throughout the day. Another idea could be to get a water bottle that you constantly keep with you and mark it with time-oriented goals. Both of these ideas will help you to remember to drink water regularly throughout the day.

Where to next?

Ensuring your drinking water is clear of any harmful bacteria is just as important as remembering to drink water as it has the potential to cause health threats. This is one of  the reason why Waterways have developed a CC1 Quad Action filtration system. This system has been specifically designed to provide you with a constant source of clean, sweet tasting water.

Why is it important to consume clean water?  With the increase of pollutants which are finding their way into our water supply, resulting in our water being filled with a high percentage of water toxins.

So not only is it important that you drink water, it is also essential that you and your family drink clean filtered water.
