Water, our most needed ‘nutrient’ for optimum health

Water, our most needed 'nutrient' for optimum health

Technically, water may not be a nutrient, but a carrier of nutrients. It aides almost every process in our human bodies. I’ve heard of people going over 50 days without food, but it would be tough for anyone to go longer than a week without water. Many people in the world quench their thirst by consuming coffee, soda, milk, processed juice, and even alcohol. How many people go an entire day without drinking any clean water?

Today I drank less water than I have in months. Altitude sickness may have kicked in when I was on high elevations. The higher you are, the more you need. Why do I find myself struggling to drink enough water? My goal is a gallon a day but I doubt I’ve made it to 3 liters.

If water is our most needed ‘nutrient’, then why don’t we make sure we are getting enough for optimum health? When we are a fetus in our mothers belly, our bodies are about 90% water. When people get fat, old and sick, their body composition can drop to 50% water content. The more hydrated we are, the healthier we will be, and feel.

Pure, clean water. Drink some now.
