Water is a wondrous and important element of our planet earth. Every organism consists of a certain percentage of water in order to survive.
Water regulates the cardiovascular circulation and digestion, acting as solvents for salts and minerals as well as acting as a mean of transport for nutrients and degradation products. Moreover and most importantly the central significance of the body’s thermoregulation is linked to sweating and breathing. Every day we lose around 2-3 litres of water under normal circumstances throughout the day. This loss must be regained primarily through drinking water, as the body can react even to smallest changes in the water balance, leading to severe disturbances.
