What does your body do with water

Drinking Water and your Body
Did you know that water is even more important than food to your body because - your body is mostly water?
Yes it's true!
More than half of your body weight is water. Your body can't survive for more than a few hours without it, even less if you live in a hot country or the weather is hot.
This doesn't mean that your body is like a glass that you fill with water. Your feet would get pretty soggy wouldn't they?
What it does mean is that water is the biggest part of all the fluids that travel round your body, and there is a lot of water inside your cells too. Even bones have a lot of water in them! Having a full glass of water all the time.
Blood and lymph are the main ways the body gets food and oxygen to your cells and the way wastes get taken away - this is a very important job for water!! Blood and lymph also have special cells in them which fight infections - they are part of your 'immune system'.
Now that you can see how important water is, you can understand why your body needs so much of it.
Adult bodies use up around 2 liters a day and smaller bodies use less. If you are around 8 years old you might use up about 1 liter a day, so you have to replace that much water.
A lot of people have started to drink water from a Prestige Water filter system, which has different minerals in it. The water taste different from tap water so people may like it more. Chemicals such as chlorine and most of the other impurities will be removed and replaced with much needed minerals.
