Human Body's Major Component - Water
On an average, the body of an adult human being contains 60% water. Most of the water in the human body is contained inside our cells.
In fact, our billions of cells must have water to live.
The total amount of water in our body is found in three main locations:
· Within our cells (two-thirds of the water),
· In the space between our cells and
· In our blood (one-third of the water).
For example, a 70-kg man is made up of about 42L of total water.
Actually, the amount of water a body contains varies according to certain contexts:
· The body of a newborn is composed of more water (75%) than that of an elderly person (50%).
· The more muscular a body is, the more water it contains.
· Conversely, the more fat in the body, the less water the body contains as body fat has little water.
Also, all our vital organs contain different amounts of water: the brain, the lungs, the heart, the liver and the kidneys contain a large quantity of water between 65 to 85% depending on the organ, while bones contain less water (but still 31%!).
Dehydration is a Common Problem
Based on clinical trials on adults, scientists have identified that dehydration has an impact on Physical and Mental performance.
Consequences of mild dehydration (a loss of 1-2% of body weight) include:
· Headaches and
· Decrease in alertness, concentration and memory
· Loss of endurance and sport skills.
Staying Hydrated is the key!
Dehydration can be avoided by drinking the recommended daily amount of water.
Don't wait until you are thirsty to drink, When we feel thirsty, dehydration has already set into a certain degree. So, everyone should drink regularly throughout the day, before they even feel thirsty.
