Water Information

Infinite Pathways presents water. Every cell in your body is made up of water. Your muscles for instance, are close to 75 percent water while your blood is 82 percent water. Incredibly, your brain is almost 95 percent water and your lungs are approximately 90 percent water. Even your bones are made up of 25 percent water.


Drinking enough water is the most important thing you can do for your body. Essential to good health, water makes up approximately 70 percent of the human body. When you become dehydrated, critical cells begin to dry up, many functions and processes within your body begin to malfunction, and even mild dehydration will slow your metabolism by as much as 3 percent. While your body can go without food for up to 6 weeks, you will only last one week without water before you begin to die a very painful death.

  1. • Lubricates joints, decreasing joint pain and inflammation
  2. • Regulates pH levels in the body, thereby reducing inflammation and pain
  3. • Protects and cushions vital organs
  4. • Regulates body temperature by producing sweat that evaporates and cools the body when hot
  5. • Carries nutrients and oxygen to vital cells
  6. • Moisturizes skin
  7. • Lubricates eyes
  8. • Converts food into energy

Water & You

Water conducts the necessary electrical signals in your body that are responsible for almost every function imaginable. The most significant factor in daytime fatigue is actually dehydration. Studies show that even a 2 percent drop in body water will trigger adverse responses such as difficulty focusing on a printed page and short-term memory loss with such things as basic math problems.

Water lubricates your joints. Drinking sufficient water can decrease joint pain in up to 80 percent of sufferers. Studies further show that many people suffering from joint pain are simply chronically dehydrated.

It is said that by the time we feel thirsty, our body is already dehydrated. Furthermore, most people are chronically dehydrated and as a result, have developed a weakened thirst mechanism, which means they often mistake thirst for hunger.

We have all been told we should drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. An important reason to drink lots of water is to flush the body of toxins and help regulate pH levels. Compare your body to a pool of water. A stagnant pond has no flow of liquid in or out. Like a stagnant pond, when you donít drink enough water, over time toxins build up, creating a sludge pool. Water helps your kidneys and lymphatic system flush out this toxic build-up.

"What goes out must come in." In other words, the amount of water you release through everyday activities must always be replaced. Temperature, humidity and your activity level are detersming factors in how much water you need to drink. Overweight people tend to sweat more than others and therefore lose more water on a daily basis. In general, the average sedentary adult loses about 2500 ml of water a day.
This water will be lost as follows:

  1. • 1500 ml through the kidneys in the form of urine
  2. • 500 ml as evaporation and perspiration from the skin
  3. • 300m1 through respiration in the lungs
  4. • 200 ml through the gastrointestinal tract

Your body produces about 200 ml of water a day in metabolic processes, leaving another 2300 ml that must be replaced. If you exercise at all, the amount of water loss increases by as much as 4 liters per hour during heavy workouts. For many people, drinking eight glasses of water a day can seem tedious at first. Here are several tips that can make this process easier for you.

  1. • Have water bottles in places like your car and your desk at work.
  2. • Keep a supply of water bottles in the fridge. When you want to snack on something, take a water bottle instead. This is great for weight management as well.
  3. • Keep a glass of water beside your bed. Your body requires as much water while you sleep as it does when you are awake, so when you wake up after 8 hours of sleep, you are already dehydrated.
  4. • Keep a small cup beside the bathroom sink and take a drink every time you brush your teeth or wash your hands.
  5. • Drink a tall glass of water with meals instead of soft drinks or juice.
  6. • Make sure you drink a glass of water before drinking wine or other alcoholic beverages.
  7. • Put a slice of lemon in for a refreshing change. Be sure it has been washed before slicing.
