The water in our blood helps to carry the oxygen to all the cells in our body. If it stops, the human system will get collapsed. Hence, water is very much essential for our organs to function properly. Now, you may get an idea of why we need water. On the outset, we can see our body covered up by flesh and skin but water is the real driving force inside. Therefore, it is very important to drink plenty of water to keep our body healthy and we should not let it get dehydrated.

Water doesn’t have calories to increase the weight, but at the same time it helps to prevent excessive intake of solid food.

Removes the unwanted: Sweating is one of the way out to get rid of unwanted particles from our body. Likewise, our kidney segregates unwanted salt from our body and flushes it out by urination.

I once heard a way to calculate how much water you should drink. It had to do with weight, measured in pounds, and it related to water, measured in ounces. It was half or double. I can't recall now.

Water never helped me with weight loss at all. It goes right through me. I'm in the bathroom every 15 minutes and still starving. I can only drink it mixed with crystal lite, unless I'm super thirsty.

I drink 8-10 glasses of water everyday... it's really important as you write here. I think we do a diservice to ourselves by drinking soda which is empty calories. .. when we should just be drinking water which is so much better for us :-)

I'm a runner, so I always drink plenty of water the day before a race--and on race day! I have a glass beside me right now--have a 5K to run in the morning!

Water is so good for us, and I don't drink as much as I should. Thanks for reminding me to drink more! I will go and get some right now. Wishing you a very nice Thanksgiving.
