We're made out of water

Water represents about 60% of an adult's body weight. In fact all of our vital organs* contain different levels of water.¹ It even makes up a large part of our blood, our skin and our muscles. No wonder why it's so important!

What else does water in the body do?

Water is one of the most important needs of the human body and helps with the following functions:

  • Keeping your body at the right temperature.
  • Carrying out waste products from the body.
  • Transporting nutrients from food through the digestive tract, and moving them to the cells via the blood stream.
  • Acting as a lubricant for the joints and as a shock absorber for sensitive tissue.
