 Osmosis is of prime importance in living organisms, where they influence the distribution of nutrients and the release of metabolic waste product. The membrane forms a selective barrier between the cell and its environment; not all substances can pass through the membrane with equal facility. Without this selectivity, the substances necessary to the life of the cell would diffuse uniformly into the cell's surroundings, and toxic materials from the surroundings would enter the cell.
