Water

Water is the most important constituent of all living tissue. It forms up to 95% of the fresh weight of some animals. We all know that water is lost through sweat, excretion and evaporation from the respiratory surfaces. It must therefore, be replenished by drinking, through food and in small quantities by metabolic processes of the body like synthesis and oxidation of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
