As a society, we are mostly eating cooked food when we were engineered to consume raw food. Eating cooked food triggers a loss of many methyl (a single carbon and three hydrogen molecule) groups per cell per day.

One of the most important health benefits we get from beverages is liquid! The good news is that all beverages can contribute to our daily liquid needs. Why is liquid important? Water is the largest single constituent of the human body and is essential for life. Water is necessary for transporting nutrients to cells and waste products out of the body. It provides lubrication for joints and cushioning for vital organs and skin. It is needed to regulate body temperature, for muscle function, for optimal performance, and to prevent dehydration. Water comprises 75% of the body weight in infants, 62% of body weight of an adult, and 55% in the elderly.
