According to scientific data, our body, like each of its cells, is 75%, the brain is 85%, blood is 94% water. When a person is born in the womb, he is 99%, and when born, 90% consists of water. But in old age, we only have 65% of water, that is, with its loss, we begin to get sick and grow old. With a loss of 8% of water, a person falls into a semi-conscious state, with 10% - hallucinations and cardiac arrest begin, with a loss of 12% - death occurs.
The deprivation of water is much more dangerous than the deprivation of food. A person can live without food for more than a month, and without water only a few days.
In our body there are reserves of nutrients, which, when they are deficient, begin to be economically spent. Biochemical reactions in the body occur constantly, the cell converts substances into energy, while releasing harmful waste substances into the intercellular space, which must be removed from the body. And water does it.
What does the body do when there is not enough water? He starts taking her from the reserves and then from the cells. Of these, it can take up to 66% of the water requirement, but the cell itself is a living organism, it begins to defend itself, covering the holes for the entry and exit of water in the membrane with cholesterol.
Each cell is a whole world with its own center of government located in the core, with factories (processing nutrients and releasing harmful substances) and hydroelectric power stations, transport arteries (and there can also be traffic jams here). The function of protecting the cell is performed by its two-layer membrane with a complex system of receptor openings for the passage of water and nutrients and the removal of already used substances. The cell spends 70% of the generated energy on its life support, and with a shortage of water, the efficiency of its work decreases by 40-50%, where then will the forces come from to work ?! Water can be taken from the intercellular space up to 6%, but then the harmful substances used by the cell will not be removed, the processes occurring in the body will slow down, and as a result we will get gout, kidney stones and gallbladder, etc. Up to 8% of water can be taken from the blood , in connection with which it thickens. Only water can prevent all these scourges, and neither tea, nor coffee, nor carbonated sugary drinks (they, according to WHO, are the most harmful substances for our health).
How much water to drink?
In European countries, it is recommended to drink 30 - 35 ml per 1 kg of your weight. Europeans drink bottled water 15-20 times more than in Russia. Most of all in Italy, and not without reason there is the smallest percentage of the incidence of hypertension. The blood is more liquid, the vessels are elastic, the cells work, there is no cholesterol, and only water can do this. It is recommended to drink 2-3 liters of water per day, and not various drinks..
Why don't we drink enough water?
It turns out that the signals given by the brain about the lack of water are very similar to the signals of hunger. And, of course, instead of drinking a glass of "tasteless" water, we drag something tasty into our mouths to please our taste buds, and drink something sweet. Water is not added to the body. And then we get upset when we step on the scales or have to buy a new suit one size larger.
It's IMPOSSIBLE TO LOSE WEIGHT OR BE HEALTHY WITHOUT WATER!
When and how to drink water?
The morning water intake is extremely important. During the night, the body loses 600-1000g in weight. Water left us - we breathed (900-1000 ml of water is spent on breathing per day), sweated, cells worked, as a result, the body was dehydrated in the morning. Therefore, half an hour before a meal, drink 300-400 ml. water, during this time the water will pass throughout the body and prepare the organs for the digestion of breakfast.
Again, don't confuse water with tea, coffee, soft drinks, beer, etc.
Drink 200-250 ml of water 2-2.5 hours after eating, in order to remove harmful substances used by the cell, and so on: 200-250 ml 1-2 hours before meals and the same amount after 2-2 ,5 hours after eating.
How to find out about the lack of water in the body?
Following our taste buds, many of us have almost eliminated water from our daily diet. Alas, all these drinks that allow you to "cheer up" are not water, they have killed the water structure that allows water to work with the cell.
The body quickly gets rid of such drinks, taking away water-soluble substances from them, which are very often harmful to it. And if you drink water, it will work in the body, washing out harmful substances from the intercellular space, filtering them with the kidneys.
Chemical reactions are going on all the time in the body, and if you do not drink water for a long time, this will lead to the fact that at the first stage you will have dark, and then cloudy urine - this is the first signal of a lack of water in the body. If the body is not provided with normal conditions for waste removal, then "non-standard" molecules, essentially toxins, will accumulate in organs and tissues, and in extreme cases, tumor degeneration of cells may occur.
To prevent this from happening, cells of the immune system and antibodies are connected to the fight against them, which are able to structure water on their own and "burn" the enemy with the help of reactive oxygen species. But the main purpose of the immune system is to fight the "external" enemy, and if the fight against the "internal" enemy continues for too long, chronic inflammatory conditions can develop..
If you continue your lifestyle without drinking water, you will get sand, and then stones in the kidneys or gallbladder and many other diseases. The body gives a large number of signals about the lack of water, for each person they are individual and depend on the importance of the organs for the body (as determined by the biocomputer) and their weakness, incl. and due to lack of water and other vital chemical elements.
Everything happens, as with natural selection in nature: the weak die first..
