We are mostly made up of water. About 55 to 60% of our body is water. In fact, our body composition determines how much water is in our body since different types of cells contain different amounts of water. For example, fat tissue is about 25% water, whereas muscle tissue is closer to 75% water.
Getting enough water for your body is important for many reasons, including bringing nutrients to our cells and removing waste, lubricating our joints, and regulating our body temperature. In order to keep our body functioning well, we need to make sure we properly hydrate and maintain our fluid balance, which is the relationship between the water going into your body and the water going out.
