Water sustains all forms of life including human life. Water adjusts the body?s temperature and assists in digestion. It removes toxins from the body and also makes necessary body fluids. The chemical reactions that support life takes place in a water medium, with water being an important reactant and product of these reactions.


It can be said that the chemistry of life is water chemistry. For the body it to function properly, it must be hydrated properly. Moreover the properties and quality of water we drink can determine the quality of our health.


This is not about coffee, tea, cocoa, or soft drinks. We are talking about pure water in its purest. Although coffee, tea and other beverages including alcoholic do contain water, they also contain chemicals and other additives harmful to your body. These are not substitutes for water and they do not hydrate and cleanse your body like pure water.


The adult human body is made up to about 60-75% water.

The brain is made up of about 85% water.

Blood which carries nutrient and oxygen through out the body is about 90% water.

By the time you are thirsty you are already dehydrated.


This is a common way of defining dehydration in its most practical term. Chronic dehydration manifests itself as sickness and premature aging. An average person needs about 8 glasses of water in order to function at an optimum level. When the human body is dehydrated it begins to pull water from the organs and tissues.


Lack of energy and exhaustion are results of even mild dehydration. Other results of dehydration includes allergies, asthma, colitis, constipation, migraine headache, rheumatoid arthritis, and angina just to mention a few. It is obvious that both the quality and quantity of your water intake have a significant effect on both your physical and mental health.


Have you ever wondered if there is something new you should know about the water you are drinking?



Over acidity is very common and may be due to a number of reasons including diet, environmental pollutants, disease and other pollutants.

When the body is in a constant state of acidity it gives rise to an environment conducive to disease. Symptoms associated with an acid is weight loss problems, insomnia, water retention, alternating constipation, colds, flu, difficulty swallowing, burning in the mouth, bumps in the tongue, stomach ulcers cancers and even acid reflux are often associated with this condition.
