Water as the basis of life

We look around and see only water. Trees, leaves, dogs, cats, grass, people, birds and insects are mostly water. Without water, all this natural splendor will perish in a matter of days. This is the meaning of water.

The search for extraterrestrial life first of all begins with the search for water. Modern scientists are well aware that without it the appearance of life on other planets is impossible. The fact is that water has unique chemical and physical properties that other substances do not have.

Our body is 60-70% water. And newborn babies are almost completely saturated with water – 90% of their body weight is water! This is very difficult to imagine and realize, but it is so!

In our body, most of the water is found in cells. About 30% of water is located outside the cells, and 70% inside. Moreover, blood contains only 7% of all our water. Also, a lot of water can be found in interstitial space and lymph.

It is water that ensures the transport of nutrients to the cells of our body. Without this, the human body would not have been able to form. And the blood itself, which “brings” the necessary building elements to the cells, cannot function normally without water.

The mechanisms that keep our body alive are very complex. However, it is known for sure that they will not work without water. In every cell there are chemical processes that could not proceed without water. From the food we eat, various substances are created that are needed for a fulfilling life. Further, these substances enter the cells through the blood and are there in an aqueous solution. This is another important function of water – it is a laboratory for the synthesis of essential proteins and amino acids.

How water quenches thirst

Water is a natural thirst quencher. When there is not enough water in our body, we quickly begin to feel it. With a shortage of only 1-2% of water from the norm, we begin to experience acute thirst. This is not surprising, because with a shortage of 10%, serious problems begin to appear:

  • skin wrinkles
  • dry mouth appears,
  • there is a blackout of consciousness,
  • hallucinations appear,
  • symptoms of dysfunction of the swallowing reflex appear,
  • the functioning of the psyche is disrupted.

When a person loses more than 15% of water from the norm, he dies.

How water balance is regulated

A very important feature of our body is its ability to regulate water balance. A person consumes 2-3 liters of water per day. The set-off includes both ordinary drinking water and coffee, tea, soups, sweet drinks. Even ordinary food, cereals, meat and fruits, contain a lot of water. At the same time, our body regularly gets rid of excess water. This is necessary to remove from the body various toxins, salts and other harmful substances that can be formed in the process of life. However, when we begin to receive less water, our body gradually decreases its return to the external environment.

With a decrease in the flow of water into our body, blood thickens. We begin to feel an acute thirst. How does this happen? When blood with a water content below normal reaches our brain, a special center that regulates the water-salt balance, notices the lack of water and sends signals that make us look for water. At the same time, the brain sends signals to the pituitary gland. The latter produces a special hormone that causes our body to significantly reduce its excretion of water. So we can live for a long time in a situation where we do not have enough drinking water.
