What exactly happens when our throat gets dry and why does water almost always fix it?

In: Biology

It’s pretty much exactly as it sounds like. The cells in your body require moisture to perform all of their various actions and functions. When there isn’t enough produced they can get dry and signal this to your brain. If you add more water back it helps keep things shiny and happy.

The air from your breathing/talking dried out the surface of your throat. I little splash of water moistens it back up. Like a sponge, but more meaty

Dry cells inflame as they struggle to survive. If there is no water present – they die and may increase infection chance.
