Water a key element for our body

Water is the largest constituent of the human body: Total body water averages at 60% of body weight.¹
The water content of various organs ranges from 83% in blood to only 10% in adipose tissue.²

Water content of different organs and tissue²

About two thirds of this water is located in the intracellular compartment, and one third in the extracellular compartment (plasma and interstitial fluids).¹

Water is essential to our main physiological functions:

  • Water acts as a medium to support numerous metabolic reactions
  • Water, as the main component of blood, carries:
  1. nutrients, hormones, and other compounds to the cells
  2. metabolic waste products away from the cells, for excretion from the body³
  • Water is the solvent that assists the elimination of the soluble metabolic wastes by the kidneys, through the production of urine
  • Water ensures body temperature regulation. It is the major constituent of sweat, and through its evaporation from the surface of the skin, it helps dissipate excess body heat
