People still have not been able to find the answer to what can replace water. From the very beginning of life, we perceive water as an integral part of being. Water, as one of the most common elements, is present in almost all plants, animals and humans. She is part of the blood. And our body mainly consists of water: in infancy it is 95%, in old age – up to 60%. Perhaps aging is the inability to retain water?
The human body consists of 60-70% water, but with age we begin to lose it. Blood is fundamentally nothing more than water; fluid is present in the muscles, lungs, brain. Water is involved in the mechanism of thermoregulation, with its help, the necessary substances are transported to the internal organs. Water delivers oxygen to cells, removes toxins and protects joints and organs.
Drinking water is a must
If the body is not provided with water constantly and in the required volume, it is forced to distribute its supply, which are available and to cut back on the implementation of some functions, so that the reserves are sufficient for a long period. Vital organs like the brain can be considered a priority, while others are completely deprived of water or provided with it on a leftover basis, when the needs of the brain are already satisfied.
