Carries nutrients and toxins.

Water has the ability to dissolve minerals that are necessary for basic body functions and distributes them throughout the body through the circulatory system. as well as, it transports toxins and substances that need to be disposed of from the body and takes them to the specific organs so that they can be eliminated
