The importance of water

Why Do We Need Water? 

As a whole, our bodies are as much as 60% water — which makes a pretty strong case for its important role in our biology. What’s even more fascinating is how much water is present in the individual organs of our bodies. Water plays an important role in the proper functioning of our body parts as well. For instance, did you know that blood is about 92% water, brain is made up of 75% water, and even bones are as much as 31% water? 

Water is an essential component of living tissues because it allows molecules to move, interact and develop. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that water is the basis of all life form on our planet.

Water provides us with hundreds of different benefits, some of them are mentioned below.
