Water and the immuine system

September 12, 2015 | Posted in:Special Awareness

Soon it will be that time of year again, you know, sneezing, sore throats, hacking coughs and sniffy noses. Then the cold and flu season is here.  With the weather already turning cool in the mornings, busy school schedules and many are already preparing for the usual holidays coming up, it’s too easy to get worn out and the immune systems need to start working overtime.  Those in the medical field provide information on getting the flu shot; washing hands and avoiding close contact with sick people are some of the best ways to prevent cold or flu.  It’s also important to remember to keep up healthy habits such as getting plenty of sleep, eating well and staying hydrated.  Once again, water is an inexpensive and easy way to support ones health.

Studies show that water makes up more than half a person body weight.  It is in every cell of the body and is an essential component of the fluids in everyone’s body including lymph.  Lymph is the fluid that is part of our immune system, which helps fight illness and infection.   These Lymph’s carry and move around white blood cells and nutrients to all of the body’s tissues.  This makes water very important for keeping our immune system functioning correctly to fight infections that common during cold seasons.
