Drink more water! We hear this advice from all types of health advocates. It’s hard to argue that we should drink more water, but why?

Water makes up 60-75% of human body weight. A loss of just 4% of total body water can lead to dehydration, and a loss of 15% can be fatal. It is pretty incredible that a person could survive a month without food but wouldn’t survive 3 days without water. It is clear that water is vital for survival, but what is it exactly that makes it so essential?

Let’s dive into the main ways that water supports the body. Because sometimes, the biggest motivator to change is understanding the “why” behind the claim.
