How much water is enough? Good water is essential to body cleansing. It's obvious. It
sounds like a truism. Your body goes down fast without water. Making
up almost three-fourths of the body, every cell is regulated,
monitored and dependent on an efficient flow of water. Not one of
the processes in our bodies could take place without water. Water is
something that we take for granted. But how many of us really
understand how essential water is or what happens to our body if it

- Water is the adhesive that bonds your cell architecture. When
you get enough water fluid retention decreases, and gland and
hormone functions improve.

equilibrium and helps the liver break down and release more fat.
- Water carries every nutrient, mineral, vitamin, protein,
hormone and chemical messenger in your body to its destination.

one of the reasons I recommend adding more sea greens to your diet
for moister skin, shining eyes and lustrous hair.... a quality of
sea plants known since ancient Greek times.
The human body is a water machine‚ designed primarily to run on
water and minerals. Every life giving and healing process that
happens inside our body... happens with water. In just the last
decade medical science has begun to focus more on the tremendous
healing ability our body has and how much that ability depends on
water. Our body instinctively knows how and strives to sustain
youthful longevity‚ and in its every effort... water is the key.
