Earth, are many, The biggest is without a doubt...Our Life

blood is more than 80%‚ our brain over 75%‚ and the human liver is
amazing 96% water!
Our bodies are machines designed to run on water
and minerals. The life giving and healing process that happen within
our body can happen only with water.

Water works as a lubricant for our joints and it
flows throughout our bodies. It fills nearly every space of our body
and acts as a protective shock absorber. It also helps to form the
structure of protein and glycogen.
Water is the source that carries nutrients to our
cells and also helps to transport the waste from those cells out of the
body. Clean water is a health benefit for the functioning of the
kidneys. Drinking more of the precious yet abundant fluid could lower
the risk of developing kidney stones and gallstones.
Our energy levels can also be affected by the
amount of water we drink. Being properly hydrated is critical to the
proper functioning of our bodies.
It is estimated that over 80% of our population
suffers energy loss due to minor dehydration.
Consider these statistics about
in our bodies:

causes mental and physical performance to be impaired

Would you be surprised to learn that your body requires no less than two quarts of quality water daily to be properly
hydrated? Here are more facts on dehydration.
Charles Strand a Water Quality Specialist says:

Water is the best beauty treatment.
You may have heard this since high school, and
it's true. Water will do wonders for your looks! It flushes out
impurities from your skin, leaving you with a clear with a glowing
complexion. It also makes your skin look younger. Skin that is becoming
saggy, either due to aging or weight loss, plumps up very nicely when
the skin cells are hydrated.
An additional health benefits, it improves muscle tone. You can work
out lifting weights until you're blue in the face, but if your muscles
are suffering from a dehydration, you won't notice a pleasant
difference in your appearance. Muscles that have all the water they
need contract more easily, making your workout more effective, and
you'll look much nicer than if you had flabby muscles under sagging
skin. And that is a wonderful set of health benefits.
Other Health Benefits...
Headaches... Our brain is over 75%
water. When it detects a shortage of available fluids it implements a
water rationing process by producing histamines‚ causing pain and
fatigue. Histamines are released as a warning signal that something is
wrong. This is meant to slow us down and help conserve water. When we
take antihistamines or medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen we
are just turning off the signal thus allow the problem to progress. Two
cups of water and a 20 minute break may overcome most common headaches.
is one of the best home remedies for gout. By
drinking water you will dilute the uric acid. This makes it
easier for the kidneys to excrete the uric acid and makes it less
likely to form MSU gout crystals, and hopefully the next gout
attack doesn’t arrive.
Back pain... is often the
result of a deficiency in body fluid levels. Our discs in our back are
in reality little hydraulic shock absorbers. These discs are made up of
an outer shell and filled with fluid‚ primarily water. A properly
hydrated disk creates a cushion that absorbs the shock of physical
activity and supports the weight of the upper body. When these discs
become dehydrated‚ the outer shell has to support a larger portion of
the load causing pain‚ swelling and can possibly lead to more serious
Hypertension... is very often a
result of the body adjusting to blood volume loss. The most common
cause is dehydration. Blood is more than 83% water and is heavily
affected by the level of available water in our body. When the body
detects a loss of blood volume‚ it closes off less active capillary
beds to maintain blood flow to the more active areas. These vessel
closings cause a rise in tension inside the muscle mass which we‘ve
come to know as "hypertension." More water allows proper blood volumes
and less tension.
Arthritis pain... and stiffness
is now understood to be a result of increased friction and swelling in
the joints. Water is what our body uses to lubricate these joints. When
our water levels are reduced there is increased friction between the
cartilage surfaces resulting in swelling‚ stiffness and pain. An
increased intake of water and gentle rhythmic movements of the joints
can ease‚ and in many cases‚ overcome minor arthritic pain.
Morning sickness... is a direct
result of dehydration. The fetus lives in a world of water and the body
prioritizes its needs above all others in the body. During the night
the uterus draws water from the mothers system to maintain its internal
fluid levels and those of the fetus. In the morning the mother awakens
in a state of dehydration‚ nausea‚ and fatigue. Drinking some water
before bed and upon waking may help to elevate those symptoms.
...You've probably heard about the fabulous health benefits and
fat-burning powers water. Nonetheless, there are many good reasons why
