Functions Of Water

It regulates our body temperature

Our body loses water through sweat during physical activities and in a hot environment. Our sweat keeps our bodies cool and regulates our body temperature. So to keep our body hydrated we must drink plenty of water.

Forms Saliva

Water is the main component of saliva. Saliva contains small amounts of electrolytes, mucus and an enzyme called amylase(breaks down starch into simple sugar). Generally, our body produces enough saliva with a daily intake of fluid.

Excretory system

Our body uses water to sweat, urinate, and have bowel movements. Sweat excreted by our body through sweat glands, regulates our body temperature. Water is also needed by our kidneys to work properly to flush out toxins by urination. It is also required for a proper bowel movement. Insufficient water may make you constipated.
