The Importance of Water in Human Life

There are many factors that will justify the importance of water in human life.  There is an important saying “Water is necessity for human existence”.

Dehydration Clients need to drink at least 2 litres of water daily, it promotes 1. Cell life, Water is a carrier, distributing essential nutrients to cells, such as minerals, vitamins and glucose. 2. Chemical and metabolic reactions, water removes waste products including toxins that the organs cells reject, and removes them through urines and faeces. 3. Transport of nutrients, Water participates in the biochemical break-down of what we eat. 4. Body temperature regulation, Water has a large heat capacity which helps limit changes in body temperature in a warm or a cold environment. Water allows the body to release heat when ambient temperature is higher than body temperature. The body begins to sweat, and the evaporation of water from the skin surface very efficiently cools the body. 5. Elimination of water, Water is an effective lubricant around joints. It also acts as a shock absorber for eyes, brain, spinal cord and even for the foetus through amniotic fluid.
Water is at the centre  of life. This is why nobody can live more than 3 to 5 days without any water intake.

Reduction in Collagen and Elastin Collagen is a fibrous protein in the dermis that gives structure to the skin and provides the foundation for the retention of elastin and hyaluronic acid. Elastin is an elastic protein that helps maintain shape, while hyaluronic acid cushions and lubricates to keep the skin moist. A higher amount of collagen, enables the presence of more elastin and hyaluronic acid.
With age collagen is lost due to a slower metabolism in the body and therefore the slower production of natural collagen. Damage from the sun and environment also decreases the body’s natural collagen production. This damage to the underlying structure of the skin reduces the skin’s ability to maintain elasticity and retain moisture. This then leads to an aged, dehydrated skin resulting in fine lines and wrinkles and an uneven skin tone.

According to the Department of Health, “Water is one of the most important substances on earth. All plants and animals must have water to survive. If there was no water there would be no life on earth. Apart from drinking it to survive, people have many other uses for water.”
