Why is water the essential nutrient?

Water is our body’s most essential and important nutrient. It is involved in every bodily function and makes up 70-75% of total body weight. The lack of water in the body in sufficient amount can make it stop working properly. It helps maintain body temperature, metabolize body fat, lubricates organs, aids in digestion, transports nutrients and flushes toxins away from your body. Water is a carrier and distributor of essential nutrients to cells, such as minerals, glucose and vitamins. It removes waste products such as toxins that the organs’ cell castoff and help body eliminate it through urines and fasces. (KnowsWhy.com)
