Chemical composition is good for people
Water is the primary component of the human body. In adulthood it takes 60% of the body weight, in average. In child’s body the water content is even bigger – upon birth it’s 75%, and then it gradually reduces till the age of 12 when it reaches the values of a grown up. As we grow old, the percentage of water reduces and in elders it amounts from 50 to 55%.
After the age of 12, females contain less water than males because they have more fat, while males have more muscle mass, which contains more water. That is the reason why daily needs for water are different with males and females, as shown in the table below. The water constantly leaves the body in many ways – through urine, sweat, skin diffusion, stool, breathing (in the air we breathe out is water vapor made by evaporation). Good balance of water in the body entails taking in as much water as is daily lost. Finding the adequate balance is of crucial importance for body’s benefit. The needs for water depend on the number of kilocalories taken through food (the water is used in the metabolism), loss of water through physical labor and sweating, ambient conditions (increase in heat or decrease in air humidity increases water loss through sweat or through breathing out the water vapor).
Recommendations for fluid intake (EFSA):
|Age||Male sex||Female sex|
|6-12 months||800-1000 ml||800-1000 ml|
|1-2 years||1100-1200 ml||1100-1200 ml|
|2-3 years||1300 ml||1300 ml|
|4-8 years||1600 ml||1600 ml|
|9-13 years||2100 ml||1900 ml|
|Over the age of 14||2500 ml||2000 ml
+300 ml pregnant women
+700 ml women nursing
Water functions in the body:
-in water environment all metabolic processes occur
-water is the primary component of body fluids and cells, so it’s used for transporting nutrients to all parts of the body
-takes part in removing harmful substances from the body
-takes part in body temperature regulation
-takes part in keeping the balance of minerals in the body
-takes part in keeping Acid/Alkali balance (pH)
The distribution of water in the body is not even. The highest percentage of water is in brain, blood, muscles, and lungs, while the lowest percentage is in bones and teeth. So the deficiency of water in the body firstly influences the function of organs which contain water in higher rate. That’s enough proof how important it is to have enough water in the body. Good hydration decreases fatigue, improves concentration and increases stamina. In other words, good hydration boosts mental and physical body performance, which increases the feeling of vitality.
And that is why the slogan “One sip younger and a sip more vital” in Heba’s campaign is true.
