Water Cure

Water Cure 

  Water is the most important and abundant inorganic compound in all living organisms and is considered as the elixir of life. An examination of the composition of the human body reveals that it is composed of nearly 65% of water. Even bones considered to be the driest organ have 22% water.

 The ability of water to form solutions, and hence its role as solvent is essential to health and survival.Because water can dissolve so many different substances it is an ideal medium for metabolic reactions. Water enables reactants to form products as well as dissolves waste products, which allows them to be flushed out of the body in the urine. Along with enzymes it helps to break down starches,triglycerides and protein into smaller molecules of glucose, fatty acids and aminoacids. A German study found that drinking 1.5 liters of cold water can help you burn up to an extra 50 calories per day. Thus water improves metabolism, boosts energy, and aids digestion thus improving bodily functions.
