Virtually everyone understands that water is essential to survival. While people can last weeks without food, they can only last a couple of days without water. In addition to survival, quality drinking water impacts health and well-being in numerous positive ways. Indy Soft Water is on a mission to provide quality water, and this post explains why it’s so important.
Water and the Body
Did you know that water comprises up to 60% of the body and 96% of its total mass? The brain, heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and kidneys contain primarily water. In fact, even down to a cellular level, water predominates. Clearly, water is essential to human life. Of course, all of life (even beyond humans) requires water for survival. Water quality plays a major role in human health, development, and functioning.
Regulating Body TemperatureProper hydration helps to regulate body temperature. During summer and vigorous exercise, sweating helps keep the body cool. The potential electrolytes and plasma you lose through sweat should be replaced with quality drinking water. At the same time, you should replace the water lost through sweat in order to stay hydrated and maintain a normal body temperature.
Helping with DetoxificationThe kidneys help flush and remove toxins and waste from the body. Obviously, kidneys are designed for this purpose. Still, what supports the kidneys to function effectively and stay productive? You guessed it. Water. The more and better quality water you drink, the more you support healthy kidney functioning and avoid kidney stones.
Supporting Weight Loss, Digestion, and Nutrient AbsorptionWhen it comes to food, water supports the body in several ways. First, it supports weight loss, which is partially a result of improved digestion, the second example. Drinking water frequently, including before, during, and after meals, helps break food down to be more digestible. Finally, as water breaks down food, it also dissolves the vitamins and minerals in the food and helps transport them throughout the body. The more quality water you drink, the more effective these processes are.
Providing a Sense of Well-BeingPeople who feel energized, clear-headed, and healthy tend to be in a good mood. Fortunately, water aids all these things. First, getting the right amount of water each day supports the immune system. Second, proper hydration promotes cognitive functions, such as staying focused and being alert. Finally, staying hydrated with clean, filtered drinking water can boost the metabolic rate and provide energy.

With all the benefits of quality drinking water and proper hydration, why would anyone choose not to take advantage?
