Water & Hydration Center

Water is a colorless, tasteless, odorless substance essential to all known forms of life. It is composed of hydrogen and oxygen and is the most abundant macronutrient in the diet. The body is made up of approximately 60 percent water. Dehydration occurs when the body loses too much water. This condition can be caused by diarrhea, vomiting and being in high temperatures.
