How much of the human body is water? It might surprise you to learn that water makes up about 60% of our body weight.
And what does water do for the body? The benefits of drinking water are many: It’s vital for almost every function in the body. Water acts as a building block, a solvent for chemical reactions and a transport material for nutrients and waste.
Water also helps maintain blood volume and allows proper circulation, helps regulate our body temperature and acts as a shock absorber for our joints and our brain. There are still more health benefits of water: It helps lubricate the linings of our inner organs and maintains healthy kidney function.
