Why Do We Need Water?

The human body is made up primarily of water. In fact, 70 to 80% of our body is water. So just how important is water and what does it do in our bodies after we drink it?

Water lubricates our bodies.

All of our muscles and joints need moisture and cushioning to work properly. We also need to avoid creating too much friction within the body. After we drink water, our cells absorb and allocate the water to plump up membranes, muscles, and cartilage so we get proper lubrication.

Water replenishes our fluid balance.

Our bodies lose water through sweating, digestion, urination, defecation and even breathing. In the heat of summer, we lose more fluids than usual. Drinking water helps us to stay in tip-top shape! In addition, sweating allows us to get rid of excess heat when it is hot outside. By drinking water, we can replenish the fluids we lose through sweating.

Water energizes your body.

Without enough water, our bodies have a difficult time transporting nutrients in our bodies. Other systems have to pick up the slack and work even harder. This leaves us feeling sluggish. The solution – fill up that Puritii Water bottle again and start hydrating!

Water transports nutrients, oxygen, waste throughout our bodies

Water is our body’s carrier service, whisking nutrients to where we need them. When we take in more resources than we need, or have any toxins in the body, water carries the waste out through sweat or urine.

Water helps us maintain great skin.

You can’t moisturize your skin by just putting water on it because our skins are not permeable to water. We must hydrate from the inside out. In addition, the water in our circulatory systems brings nutrients to our skin cells so we can make new collagen and elastin for healthy skin.

Water may help us lose weight.

When we try to lose weight, drinking water first when we are hungry for a snack sometimes reduces our desire to eat. In addition, when we burn fat, the toxins that are released need the water in our circulatory systems to help flush them out either through our livers or through our kidneys.

What type of water should we drink?

The majority of water on earth is not drinkable (97%), so what remains should be pure. However, the water companies do not remove many of the impurities (see Flint, MI).

So it’s up to us to find out the best and safest way to drink water. ARIIX has released a water bottle/filter called Puritii. This portable water filtration system removes up to 99.999994% of all impurities including biological material (bacteria, viruses, protozoa and fungi), toxins, pharmaceutical products and toxins. I use it where ever I travel so I don’t need to worry about my water source. But what about bottled water? Most bottled waters come from the water company, so they contain the same impurities as tap water. In the US, the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) is responsible for our municipal water supplies while the Federal Drug Administration has the authority over bottled waters. This means that the standards for the water we drink in the US are different. It’s up to us to find and drink the best water available.

The American public has always been fascinated with masks.
