Just like the earth, our bodies are comprised mainly of water… approximately 60-75% of your body weight is water.  It is essential to stay properly hydrated each and everyday as a form of detoxifying your body.  Water helps flush out toxins that can cause damage as well as help bring the good nutrients to our bodies so we can perform at an optimal level.
