Most of us know that water is important, but keeping hydrated can have a massive impact on overall health and anti-aging. Water is needed by all our major organs and systems to function properly. Water protects the spinal chord, lubricates our joints, regulates body temperature, allows our digestive track to work effectively and efficiently, and is a vehicle for delivering essential nutrients to our cells. Water is considered by many heart specialist to be one of the most overlooked tools against heart disease.
