The Essential Element H2O

How important is it to drink water?

Water Is More Crucial Than You Think!

Water is an essential element for us; in our external environment, to moisten our air and to nurture plants and wildlife. Water is a requirement in our bodies to keep it healthy. Two glasses of distilled water after waking up helps activate internal organs. Add a teaspoon of lemon and it cleans those organs. One glass of distilled water 30 minutes before a meal helps digest food and prevents over eating. If you suffer from high blood pressure, take a glass of distilled water before taking a bath which helps lower blood pressure. Distilled water is void of chemicals, salts and minerals. Did you know, our body has the same percentage of water, as the planet Earth, roughly 80%.
