Importance of water in the body

Water is the most important component of any living organism. The human body is made of 70% of water. Water is essential for various functions in the body, some of them are as follows
  • It is important for supporting cell life - water depletion (loss) can lead to cell desiccation (extreme dryness) which will ultimately lead to the death of the cell.
  • Very Important for transport - Water forms 92% of the total blood composition. All the nutrients, hormones, oxygen etc., are transported through blood to various parts of the body
  • The water in the cells (70% of cell composition) also play an important role in the transport of nutrients, minerals, vitamins to various parts of the cell.
  • The water forms the medium in which various metabolic reactions occur.
  • The temperature of the body is controlled by water (through sweating).
  • Water forms the medium through which nitrogenous waste (urea) is excreted through the body.
  • Thus, water is the major component of the body and is critical for life
