Let’s learn what’s the truth about water. By the end of the reading, (which will be just 5 mins), you will know it all.
Water is essential for life. Freshwater is vital for drinking, cooking, and everything that sustains life. Also, the human body is surprisingly 60% water. It is hence of utmost importance to keep hydrated. Many bodily functions involve water as a carrier. Water is technically a chemical compound but a way of all recreational activities on earth.
During the summers, you might sweat a lot. It hence, is important to keep dehydration out the door. Do you know that 4/10 Americans suffer from dehydration unknowingly? Talk about a dry state of affairs.

The truth about water
Lets cut the buzz. Here is the truth about water that you probably didn’t know. And aha, do not fly away when you finish reading. We have a gift for you in the end. (Early sneak peek for now: It’s everything related to your health).
Before we learn the truth about water, here are some fast facts on drinking water:
- There is no universal water consumption amount.
- Water is essential for bodily functions.
- Dehydrated leads to dull skin and causes wrinkles.
- Switching soda with water boosts weight loss.
- During summers, the body sweats more. Thereby, increasing the risk of dehydration.
#1: Water lubricates the joints
Cartilage in your joints has the shock-absorbing ability. Also, the spine contains around 80 percent water. A dehydrated body will experience more friction and will arouse pain. Ouch.
#2: It forms saliva and mucus
Saliva is that wonder binder that helped you digest your meals since you were born. It also keeps the mouth, nose, and eyes moist. It is again related to friction and damage control. Drinking water ensured hygienic oral health. If you switch to water for cola, you will cut down on tooth decay by 50%. That is a fact! We looked it up.
#3: It delivers oxygen throughout the body
Blood is more than 90 percent water. Blood is thicker than water! The blood carries oxygen and vital nutrients across the human body.
#4. It boosts skin health and beauty
Get that healthy glow just by drinking water. No toner or moisturizer can beat the beauty you get by plain & good-old water.
#5. It cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues
Dehydration has red flags written all over it. It can hamper brain structure and function. Hormones and neurotransmitters’ ability is average in dehydrated bodies. Dehydrated bodies have limited thinking skills. The next time you think someone is being stupid, probably ask them to drink water, haha. (We’re joking okay, damage control is on you if you actually do this).
#6. It regulates body temperature
Water is a natural coolant. Packed in the middle layers of the skin, it progresses towards the skin’s surface. So that’s how you literally SWEAT IT OUT!
#7. The digestive system depends on water
The bowel movements are dependent on water. Dehydration brings many unwanted gifts. To name a few, digestive problems, constipation, and an overly acidic stomach. You do not want heartburn or stomach ulcers, do you?
#8. It flushes body waste
Sweat and bodily excreta are essential metabolic needs of the body. Say thanks to water for keeping you fit.
#9. It helps maintain blood pressure
Less water can cause blood to become thicker, oops. Blood pressure will naturally be inconsistent as a result. So is that what Taylor Swift meant in her song “bad blood”!
#10. The airways need it
Airways contract as a defense mechanism to minimize water loss. Asthma and allergies will shoot up eventually due to this. Another good reason to take a shot of water right now.
#11. Water makes minerals and nutrients accessible. It also saves you from Kidney damages.
#12. It boosts performance during exercise and helps you lose weight.
