Water is the biggest part of the blood & lymph systems carrying food and oxygen to the cell and removing waste
It helps flush and detox the kidney
It moistens the eyes, mouth & nasal passages

A timely Invention.
In South Africa recently, I came across an amazing invention:
- A machine that pulls moisture from the atmosphere, runs it through a 6 stage filtration system followed by U.V treatment and delivers hot & chilled water on demand.
