How long could you survive without water?

How long could you survive without water?

Everyone’s had that dinner party conversion – how long could we survive stranded on a desert island. While we’d like to think we’d fashion clothes out of coconuts and fish with our bare hands unless we had access to fresh water, we’d be in trouble.

We can often take for granted the important role that water plays in our lives, basically it’s the sole essential factor for life on earth. The human body is 65% water, water flows through our blood, carrying oxygen and nutrients to cells and flushing wastes out of our bodies. It cushions our joints and soft tissues as well as regulating our body temperature. Without water as a regular part of our intake, we cannot digest or absorb food.

Our bodies are constantly losing water, which is why drinking a glass once a day is not enough to keep the body replenished. We lose water when we sweat, go to the bathroom — even when we exhale.

The maximum time an individual can go without water seems to be a week — an estimate that would certainly be shorter in difficult conditions, like extreme heat. Under extreme conditions an adult can lose 1 – 1.5 litres of sweat per hour!

Survival extraordinaire, Bear Grylls says his number one tip is finding water. However as the delicious natural bottle spring water is generally not found in the wild he’s had to resort to some rather extreme measures. In a moment of desperation, Bear used his own urine as a source of hydration by peeing into a shirt so he could cool himself down and re-hydrate as well.

We don’t know about you, but we certainly aren’t ready to stoop to those lengths.

Our new Aussie Natural Bag of spring water could just the difference between life and death when you’re out camping in the wilderness. Our 12L bags of water are a great portable way to keep your water levels up. Simply spike the bag and press the tap for fresh 100% natural spring water and the bag is fully recyclable and degradable.

Alternatively make sure you always carry a bottle of Aussie Natural Water on your person…. Just in case.

Best water, service and price! Dealt with Hayley through email who was efficient and friendly and Mary over the phone more recently to add more bottles to be delivered and she was easy to understand and prompt ! Love having good cold water in Perths summer heat and it’s made better when it’s so easy to access with their delivery service and the great customer service they provide.

When your daughter mentions that the water at Mummy's house is better than at Daddy's house you know your onto something good. If a 5yo can taste the difference in the water quality what's that say about what is coming out of our taps. Thanks for making the small changes I've made in our health easy. Delivery guy is always polite and happy to carry the bottles to where I store them. Staff, on the few times I've had to visit the Wangara office, are always polite. Really if you want to do something good for your family then Aussie Natural Spring Water is a no brainer. You won't regret the change.
