Water is a macronutrient that is essential in human health and healing.
It is the most abundant molecule in the body. In adults, water constitutes approximately 50-70% of body weight. The actual amount depends on many factors including age, sex and body composition. For example, muscle has more water than fat. Hence, physically fit individuals with a higher percentage of lean muscle and a lower percentage of fat tend to have more water than sedentary individuals.
Water plays a critical role in the major systems of the body including the nervous, digestive/excretory, cardiovascular/circulatory, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, renal/urinary, endocrine, reproductive, integumentary/exocrine and muscular/skeletal systems.
