Approximately 70% of the body is water therefore we know that it has many uses in the body. It helps to dilute the toxins and to flush them out of the system. It helps to down regulate high blood pressure. It helps purify the skin. Along with fiber it helps to regulate bowel movements. One can only live a few days without it.
Most Americans are dehydrated! I have had many people tell me that they do not like water. It often times shows in the wrinkling of the skin or constipation. How much water should you be drinking? Take your weight and divide it by two and drink that many ounces of water per day. I encourage people to drink distilled water which has a PH value of 7 which is neutral. If one is very acidic then you might want to add some minerals to it to raise the PH value into the alkaline level.
Water does a body good! Drink it throughout the day and stay healthy!
