Aquaporins are molecular channels that are found within the cell membranes of numerous kingdoms (plants, fungi, animals) and specific cells of the human body. They allow water to pass in and out of the cell at a rate faster than the usual diffusion through the fatty cell membrane. They are structured to only allow water through, single file, without room for any other molecules that might be in the water, called solutes.
There are several types and variants of the aquaporins. This post will contain developing information and relavance to holistic health.
