Isotonic drinks for athletes
In the body of an adult human the proportion of water should be around 70 %. Among other things this value is dependent on the age and sex. Women for instance have more fatty tissue than men. But fat contains very little water. The highest concentration is found in the blood, the skeletal musculature and the skin. This life-giving elixir has many different functions in the body. Among others these include nutrient and hormone transport and the distribution of warmth throughout the body. Water also works actively with the kidneys. In this context it ensures that the kidneys can produce sufficient urine to excrete toxins from the body.
