Water is really life. Our bodies need the right amount of water, for our cells, tissues, and organs to have optimal functioning. Within our bodies, we contain 60-70 percent water. We have many uses for water in the body, it's used as a healing agent for many of our problems and many of the chemical reactions in our bodies. When we begin to increase our water intake, our body responds by sending messages to us about its desire to have more. The kidneys monitor the amount of water in our bodies and increases or decreases the amount excreted by urine. At the end of the day remember, that we need to drink enough good clean water for optimal health.
