Why is clean drinking water important?

Our bodies are composed mainly of water and the water that we drink is processed into the cells within our body.

All our most critical body parts are composed mainly of water. Drinking more clean water than other liquids (such as soft drinks, alcohol, coffee, tea) helps our body to work as best as possible.

Each person is unique but on average, the following percentages represent the amount of water in each of our body systems.

  • Overall body 60%
