Aqueous means water. Environment means surroundings. So aqueous environment simply means 'watery surroundings'. Cells are surrounded by a watery solution called tissue fluid or interstitial fluid. This forms from the blood and contains dissolved food and oxygen needed by the cells and wastes (eg carbon dioxide) produced by the cells.

My Anatomy and Physiology book says: "Blood is the only fluid tissue in the body. It appears to be a thick, homogeneous liquid, but the microscope reveals that blood has both cellular and liquid components."
It breaks down food so the digestive tract can absorb the nutrients.
Blood it's simple :)
Well, if the question is on just components and functions of the body, it is blood that carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells. If the question is about body systems, the circulatory system (the system for blood circulation through the body) carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells through the blood.
Each and every cell in your body (trillions) has a capillary that goes right by it. These capillaries are part of the blood delivery system. The blood carries nutrients and oxygen to the cells and picks up waste and carbon dioxide.
Blood -> plasma -> extracellular fluid -> cells.
interstitial or tissue fluid that surrounds cells.
lymph, is a clear, yellowish fluid that carries desease fighting cells called lmphocytes
Capillaries allow Glucose and oxygen to move out of the blood in the capillaries into interstitial fluid and into the cells. Fluid is exchanged between capillary blood and interstitial fluid.
