Why we need water
Water is an essential element on earth and significant for the existence of life. It exists in three states namely liquid, gaseous, and solid forms. Liquid water is found flowing in rivers, springs, lakes oceans among others. Gaseous water exists when liquid or solid water evaporates into the atmosphere. Consequently, solid water exists in ice, frost, and snow. It forms when liquid water freezes at 0 degrees centigrade. Moreover, classification of water can be on sources, for instance, water from springs, distilled, and even tap water.

Water is an essential resource on earth since it supports and maintains life. First, drinking of clean water reduces chances of dehydration since a lot of water is available in the blood to help in carrying out functions such as excretion, respiration among others. Secondly, availability of water supports proper functioning of body organs such as liver, heart, and kidneys. These organs use water to facilitate effective running of processes taking place within them and ensure they carry on smoothly. For instance, the kidney performs the function of excretion of urine and mineral salts from the body. The process requires a lot of water and thus the need for someone to take at least eight glasses of water per day.

Third, water plays an extremely vital function in the body in that it facilitates the removal of waste products from the body. Such waste products include caffeine and sugar. Water provides a medium through which such wastes get dissolved and thus removed in the form of urine and sweat. Removal of waste is significant since it reduces incidences of human waste intoxication.

Fourth, water helps in cooling the body through generation of sweat. The human body releases excess heat through water vapor, which escapes, with the heat to the atmosphere. Such heat when left on the human body may disrupt the normal functioning of the body, thus reducing efficiency and performance.

Fifth, water helps in reducing human body weight in many ways. Water influences cholesterol levels by reducing such levels in the body and thus contributing to slimming of the body in a faster manner. Water also suppresses the human eating appetite by reducing incidences of feeling hungry. Moreover, water also reduces muscle dehydration thus minimizing chances of toning. Further, it helps in the digestion process as well as soothes digestive problems thereby reducing chances of feeling bloated. Consequently, human liver requires a lot of water in metabolizing fat and thus reducing the amount of stored fat and thus cutting weight.

However, drinking of too much water proves dangerous since it can result in the flushing out of all mineral and vitamins in the body, a condition known as hypernatremia. This condition often leads to confusion, seizures, and irritability and to some extent result in comma. Though rare in healthy people, it is common in endurance athletes and elders. Thus, this condition of drinking a lot of water may lead to water poisoning whereby there occurs imbalance of electrolytes within the body’s fluids. Therefore, caution must be taken when drinking...
