Water and Aging
This post will explore water and aging. The elderly population can have as little as 50% water in their bodies. Dr. Jhon states: “Water and aging are directly related and it has been shown that the water content of the body decreases with age, producing a visible wrinkling and withering effect. Keep in mind that the outward signs of aging are just an indicator of what is also happening on the inside of the body.”
The cells in the body become wrinkled as well, because they are not receiving enough water to function properly. Water movement, or “cell turnover”, also decreases with age. This means that each cell is not refreshing itself as often and toxins can accumulate more rapidly than normal. This also slows metabolism for the body.
As a side note, overweight individuals can have up to 20% less water than a normal weighted person and lower metabolism, suggesting that hexagonal water or structured water could benefit in this scenario. It has been measured scientifically that hexagonal water does increase water absorption on the cellular level. Hexagonal water has smaller clusters that are more easily distributed to each cell.
The elderly also experience a decline in thirst. This makes it especially hard for an older person to stay hydrated. MRI imaging has found that aging may be shown as a decrease in hexagonal water structure from the body’s organs and cells. Other studies have been done related to the topic of hexagonal water and aging.
