The need for replenishing your body's water supply is vital because one of the main activities of the body's self-healing system is the filtration of the blood, a job performed mostly by the kidneys, aided a bit also by the sweat glands. With the proper amount of water coming into the system, the kidneys, heart and blood, combine forces to constantly cleanse and purify the body by removing all the toxic wastes of metabolism and the breakdown products of harmful substances that have gotten into our bodies. The KEY element here, however, depends on the body having the proper amount of water in it to carry out this amazing function. This purification system can operate ONLY if the volume of water flowing through is sufficient to carry away the waste. So, make sure you drink a MINIMUM of eight 8-ounce glasses of purified water DAILY.
