This simple compound of three atoms
makes up 67% of our body weight. A 2% decrease results in fatigue.
A 10% drop causes significant problems and greater losses can be
fatal. Good hydration cushions bones and joints, transports
nutrients, flushes toxins, regulates body temperature, and empowers
the body's natural processes of healing.

You are not sick, you are thirsty!

From the Author
"The human body is like an envelope encasing 20 trillion living
cells. Each cell swims in a fluid of salty water. All proteins,
minerals, vitamins, fats, and other molecules are suspended in that
water. Water is not just present in every cell, it is essential to
its survival. Good hydration provides healthy cell repair and
regeneration. An improperly hydrated cell is weakened and more
susceptible to infection and alteration (malignancy). We humans
walk through life carrying around approximately 10-13 gallons of
water. A deficiency of only 10% can lead to chronic health
complaints. Subtle dehydration is alleged to afflict 30% 50% of
Americans. Water cushions bones and joints, transports nutrients,
flushes toxins, regulates body temperature, and empowers the body's
natural healing process. You cannot achieve optimum health without
accommodating your bodies many needs for water."
