Be Healthy: Water

The health benefit of water is key to a healthier and longer life. Drinking water is important for:

  • The elimination of toxins;
  • Keeping your blood thin and flow well;
  • Cellular and bodily functions such as digestion;
  • Relieving constipation;
  • Suppressing appetite, and
  • Metabolizing stored fat, thus helps with weight loss.

Some quick facts:
  • You can live 40 days without food, but only 3 without water.
  • You can loose 50% of your glucose, body fat or protein and survive, but if you loose 20% water, you'll die of dehydration.
  • Babies are 90% water, adults about 70%, elderly about 60%.
