WATER - ELIXIR OF LIFE

Considering that water has an extraordinary great significance, and not enough drinking water or dehydrating the organism can have enormous and harmful consequences on the health and it can cause rheumatoid arthritis, stress and depression, high blood pressure, increased level of cholesterol, body overweight, asthma, allergies, etc. To better understand the aforementioned disorders, due to lack of water, we will present them more extensively in this article and the next few.

Water is the biggest quantity ingredient in the human body. While in the embryo there is more than 90 % of water, with the development of the fetus the percentage of water drops, so at newborn baby there is 75 %, and at an adult depending on age and nutrition 59-65 %. Water can be found freely and can be found bound for proteins, blood plasma and tissues.

Water plays a string of very important functions in the organism: it’s the solvent of all inorganic and organic compounds; represents an environment in which all the chemical processes in the organism take place; participates in the chemical reactions (in hydrolytic processes); because it circles the organism consistently serves as a carrier of inorganic salts and organic compounds – on one hand through the bloodstream, and on the other hand from blood capillaries in extracellular intercellular fluids, and from there into cells and back; it gives tissues elasticity and protects the inner organs from injuries; and participates in regulating the body temperature.

Water enters the organism by food or by drinking, and there is a third choice for the water to enter and it is the so called metabolic water that comes with oxidation of nutritional maters. Water leaves the organism through feces and urine, through breathing and through sweating. During lactation of milk large quantities of water are also lost.

Unfortunately even in the so called civilized world very few people now that water isn’t just for washing. Although nothing is better than fresh and pure water to satisfy the daily needs for liquids, people nowadays usually quench their thirst with coffee, milk, coke or red bull. Why else would everywhere be repeated and emphasized that a person needs to drink 2-3 liters of pure water? Because of the nutritional habits that a modern human has, it has to sooner and better dissolve the toxins that the body would receive in order not cause damage to the organism. A person needs pure water; everything else is just a burden. Only pure water passes through the cellular membrane and only such refreshes the body.

Proper drinking water is the one which is almost without minerals, free from dead bio-nonconsumable macrocluster minerals. These minerals are precipitated in the body and with time they set into concrete everything that comes in contact with them. Today unfortunately it is still considered that the best water is the one that contains the most minerals. This is why most sparkling waters represent liquid stones offered for drinking. The water that is useful for the body is free from inorganic minerals and metals and free from carbon dioxide. Good water has a high negative ionic charge i.e. it is highly ionic negatively electrified.

Researches show that the organism loses around 3-3.5 l of water (12-14 cups) a day through feces, urine, and breathing and sweating. Through food and other ways the organism receives 1-2 l (4-5 cups) of water. In order to establish the balance of water we are missing 2-3 l (8-10 cups).
