Water is essential to accelerate the metabolism when we want to lose weight, learn the exact amount you should consume and the importance of consuming it.
Water is the most abundant component of the human body (60% of body weight) composed of 89% oxygen and 11% hydrogen according to its molecular mass. For this reason, when consuming water (preferably pure so that it passes directly into the bloodstream) hydration and oxygenation at the cellular level is increased and this causes fat combustion to occur, being another important factor through which metabolism is accelerated, leading to to the weight loss which is reflected with the body figure, in addition to providing a better state of health, because it is important to stay hydrated since otherwise dry skin, heartburn, absence of sweat, strong yellow urine, with the smell of ammonia and little thirst, if you read correctly! little thirst! Well, when the body detects little water supply, it takes precautions and saves the little amount that exists in the body with mechanisms such as: less thirst, less sweat, and in general less waste of this mineral.
Water is essential for all living beings, man is able to survive weeks without food but only a few days without water. The functions that it fulfills are of great importance because it is the essential component of the blood and in general of the organism; intervenes in the regulation of body temperature; transports nutritional substances facilitating their digestion, absorption, circulation and excretion; Fundamental to eliminate waste substances through the lungs, kidneys, intestines, skin, it also maintains the electrolyte balance.
Water intake (900 – 1500 ml / day)
- Water, drinks, soups (Ingested liquids).
- Water contained in solid foods.
- Water produced inside the body through metabolism.
The body removes water through certain mechanisms.
- Kidney: through urine (1000 – 1500 ml of water).
- Skin: With sweat there is loss between 500 – 600 ml of water. Varies depending on the weather.
- Digestive tract: With the feces 100 – 200 ml of water is excreted. In case of diarrhea this figure increases.
- Respiratory system: With the expiration between 300 – 400 ml of water.
Generally, large water losses occur with fever, vomiting, excessive sweating, burns, bleeding.
To preserve the stability or hydric balance (water) the organism must maintain the balance between the entrance and the excretion of the water.
The kidney is responsible for maintaining a balance of the amount of water in the body, increasing or decreasing the elimination of urine depending on the amount of water in the body is greater or less.
