Branded Water : The Importance of Water in Human Health
Recent Company News
Nearly seventy percent of the earths surface is covered with water, and whether it be by coincidence or divine, our humans bodies are also nearly seventy percent water and the salinity of our extracellular fluids is also approximately that of ocean water. These three simple atoms, H2O, are so integral to our existence, that the discovery of it on another plant is almost a certain indicator of life.
We love water, we play in it, spend our leisure time around it, build our most luxurious homes next to it, enjoy some of our favorite sports on it, exercise in it, travel to exotic vacations spots to be near it, cleanse ourselves with it and visit spas to seek out its healing powers.
We cherish our freshwater lakes, streams, reservoirs ad our great oceans.

The therapeutic use of water in all its forms crosses all cultures and dates back to the beginning of civilization. The Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Hebrews, Hindus, Chinese and Native Americans all used water to heal injury and treat disease. And here is something to ponder : the water we drink today is the same water that our ancient ancestors drank. It is the same water that Moses lifted to his lips, that was served to Cleopatra, and to George Washington and Nelson Mandela. The way our ecosystem works, the water on the planet continuously recycles. When the sea water evaporates, it leaves the salts behind. As the rising water cools, it condenses to form water droplets and clouds which, at the right temperature, drop back to earth. The same molecules of water are merely exchanged between sea and sky and soil and have been doing so for years.
The restorative powers of water are so primal that even the sound of water is healing. Sounds of recorded rivers and ocean waves and waterfalls are sold everywhere and there are even videos of them. It is easier to fall asleep or meditate listening to water. Water is a fantastic stress reducer. A hot bath before bedtime is the universal cure for relieving the stress that cause insomnia. Special shower heads can massage you in the shower and tubs with water jets soother areas in your neck, back and shoulders. Lets face it, we love water because we are water. The average adult contains 37 to 47 litres of water. Blood is 83% water, muscle 75%, brain 75%, heart 75%, bones 22%, lungs 86%, kidneys 83% and eyes 93%. We are indeed mobile sacks of water !!!! Every cell in every living thing, whether plants or people, contains a nutrient fluid that is mostly water. Every cell is also floating around other cells in an 'extracellular' sea of saline water. If the water table for either of these fluids is even slightly under, it is like farmland that is under-irrigated. True, most vegetables will still grow, but they are not in their prime and there are areas of decay. Just look at dry skin to get and idea of what's going on when its to dry inside you. Where you see shriveled skin, there are shriveled cells. It is like parched soil, only in people, its is one step closer to mummification. You cannot see dehydration, but it is crucial you do not ignore it. These extracellular fluids carry the electric charges that enable the cells to communicate with each other. They transport the food (nutrients), deliver oxygen and remove the bad stuff - waste products and toxins. They regulate temperature and prevent sticking. On a larger scale this extracellular fluid acts as a lubricant and even a cushion for joints and bones. It acts as a shock absorber for organs and glands. It quenches free radicals by binding to them and is crucial to the body's overall capacity to repair, restore and heal.
Water, therefore, plays an all encompassing role in energy metabolism and the physiologic functions of the body.
