Water is the primary element for the development of life on the planet: water, in fact, is the most common chemical compound in nature, as well as the major component of human body, accounting for up to 60% of the weight of an adult man.
The total body water (TBW) features a specific distribution which includes 67% inside the cells and 33% outside them, in the interstitial fluid, plasma, lymph and transcellular fluid.
The water balance in the human body is constantly regulated by the thirst centre in the hypothalamus as well as by the antidiuretic hormone, whose joint action on the nerve centres and organs responsible for its elimination allows for the water balance in the body and the prevention of potentially fatal dehydration.
In nature, water is commonly found in a “spurious” form, that is mixed with the substances dissolved in ionic (mineral salt,) gaseous and non-ionic state, as well as in the form of organic biological compounds.
Over the centuries, thanks to several experiences, exams and in-depth analysis, it has been possible to certify the early assumptions and attest to the presence of undisputed therapeutic properties, whose value was codified and canonized during the last century through in-depth scientific analyses relating to the various types of water and its beneficial effects on human body starting from the specific characteristics of each water so far classified.
