What you need to survive, just to live. water, food Air, cellphones (lol)? I would say water is the most important to all living things; in some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. Our bodies are around 60% water, give or take. It is recommended to drink eight 8-12 ounce glasses of water per day (the 8×8 rule). Here are Health Benefits of Drinking Water And Staying Hydrated.
Health Benefits of Drinking Water And Staying Hydrated
Water serves a number of essential functions to keep us all going:
A vital nutrient to the life of every cell, acts first as a building material, Hydration Has a Major Effect on Energy Levels and Brain Function
Water Helps to Maximize Physical Performance
Drinking Water May Help to Prevent and Treat Headaches
Drinking More Water May Help Relieve Constipation
Drinking Water May Help Treat Kidney Stones
Water Helps Prevent Hangovers
Drinking More Water Can Help With Weight Loss
It regulates our internal body temperature by sweating and respiration
The carbohydrates and proteins that our bodies use as food are metabolized and transported by water in the bloodstream
It assists in flushing waste mainly through urination
acts as a shock absorber for brain, spinal cord, and fetus
Reduce High Blood Pressure
Slow the Aging Process
I love cold water the best with some ice and lemon is perfect, I do my best to drink 8 glasses of water per day but even I fall short sometimes. There are 6 different kinds of water to drink and I have listed them below.
Tap Water is water supplied to a tap (valve). Its uses include drinking, washing, cooking, and the flushing of toilets. Indoor tap water is distributed through “indoor plumbing“, which has existed since antiquity but was available to very few people until the second half of the 19th century when it began to propagate in what are now developed countries. Tap water became common in many regions during the 20th century, and is now lacking mainly among people in poverty, especially in developing countries.
Tap water is often culturally assumed to be drinking water, especially in developed countries. Usually it is potable, although water quality problems are not rare. Household water purification methods such as water filters,boiling, or distillation can be used when tap water’s potability is doubted. The application of technologies (such as water treatment plants) involved in providing clean water to homes, businesses, and public buildings is a major subfield of sanitary engineering. Calling a water supply “tap water” distinguishes it from the other main types of fresh water which may be available; these include water from rainwater-collecting cisterns, water from village pumps or town pumps, or water carried from streams, rivers, or lakes (whose potability may vary).
Mineral Water is natural water containing not less than 250 parts per million total dissolved solids. Mineral water is distinguished from other types of bottled water by its constant level and relative proportions of mineral and trace elements at the point of emergence from the source. No minerals can be added to this product.
Purified Water is water that has been produced by distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis, or other suitable processes while meeting the definition of purified water in the United States Pharmacopoeia. Other suitable product names for bottled water treated by one of the above processes include “distilled water” if it is produced by distillation, “deionized water” if it is produced by deionization, or “reverse osmosis water” if the process used is reverse osmosis. Alternatively, “drinking water” can be used with one of the purifying terms defined above (e.g., “purified drinking water” or “distilled drinking water”).
Spring Water is water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth. Spring water must be collected only at the spring or through a borehole tapping the underground formation feeding the spring. Spring water collected with the use of an external force must be from the same underground stratum as the spring, must have all the physical properties before treatment, and must be of the same composition and quality as the water that flows naturally to the surface of the earth.
Sparkling Bottled Water is water that, after treatment and possible replacement with carbon dioxide, contains the same amount of carbon dioxide that it had as it emerged from the source. Sparkling bottled waters may be labeled as “sparkling drinking water,” “sparkling mineral water,”
I drink them all except for tap water although where I live in San Antonio, TX our tap water is some of the best in the world, and I drink mine alkalanized using Alkaline Water Drops and when I’m outdoors or exercising I use Hydration by Genesis Pure Corp.
