Video Transcript: Why is Water Important?
Ty: Fascinating stuff Paul. Now tell me why is water important? We’ve got water out here. We’ve got a swimming pool here, you can hear the water flowing. Water’s everywhere. Why is it important?
Paul Barattiero: Yeah. Water, water everywhere, right? Well water is important. If we really look at our body, three quarters of our body is water if we’re properly hydrated. Most people are not. We know that 70-80 percent of America is chronically dehydrated so that’s another whole problem.
But why is water important? Water, believe it or not, functions in every system. From joints to the brain to the blood is 93 percent water. So people don’t think—even down to the bones are 13-22 percent water. So water is everywhere in our system. And it’s critical to health that we are properly hydrated.
When we are not properly hydrated our metabolic rate is reduced. Our thought processes are reduced. The toxins that we are supposed to be removing are not happening. So our bodies are taxed and burdened with having to do that in other ways. And so we end up with skin issues. We end up with a lot of different pathology as a result of chronic dehydration because we’re not putting water in.
I call water our filtration system for our body. So, when we bring water in to our system we want to void out that same amount of water, but take some things with it that we didn’t want in our body in the first place. That’s the way I look at water. And if water is structured properly it will do that. If it’s not structured water, water’s not structured properly we can bring it in into our system and do nothing and void it back out without it doing what it’s designed to do.
