Does water have any nutrients?

    Yes and no!
    Water does not contain any other nutrients, but in a way it’s a vital nutrient itself. Water is needed to maintain health for cells, to keep our blood liquefied, eliminate byproducts from metabolism, regulate temperature, keep mucus membranes moist (for example, your lungs), lubricate and cushion joints, keeping the bladder clean, aid digestion and prevent constipation, improve skin’s texture and appearance, and serve as a shock absorber for the eyes, spinal cord and in the case of future mommies, the amniotic sac. It’s reconmended that one needs to drink 6-8 glasses of water or other fluids a day (such as juice, tea, milk, or soda… but the best is water!), and over 8 if you’re active.

    If you don’t drink water you will become dehydrated and if you continue to not drink for three days you will die.

    Water is known to contain variable amounts of 15 essential minerals; it also contains, in moderate amounts, selenium, sodium, chlorine, fluoride, calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron; and in low amounts, phosphorous, potassium, iodine, boron, manganese and chromium. In addition, substantial amounts of water are also necessary to hydrate the body, and proper water consumption amounts have been proven to affect infant bodily growth.

    Ordinary water does not contain any nutrients, but is instead a nutrient in itself because the body requires more water than it can naturally produce. It is also a nutrient in itself because it is essential for bodily functions such as digestion; absorbing, transporting, and dissolving nutrients; regulating temperatures in the body; and flushing out waste products. Mineral water contains other nutrients such as sulfates, fluorine, calcium, and magnesium. These nutrients protect bones, strengthen the heart, and aid in digestion.
