Water supports every function of the body. We need clean water to survive.
Mild dehydration will cause headaches, backaches, joint aches, constipation, dry skin, hair and eyes, poor sleep, weight gain, and can be linked to higher cancer risk. Dehydration can even cause you to retain water.
Caffeine and alcohol actually will dehydrate you; juice adds a lot of calories. The body needs clean water. What about the quality of water? Does quality matter?
Water is the universal solvent and the quality of water matters. Water is the way nutrients, medications and oxygen are transported to the muscles, the joints and the brain. Water is what transports waste away from the body cells, organs and skin.
What types of chemicals are added to our water supply? To name a few: fluoride, chlorine, and chloramines, not to mention fracking and medical waste. There are more than 2100 known drinking water contaminants that may be present in tap water, including several known poisons
If our water is not clean, will our bodies become a filter for the contaminants?
Many are turning to bottled water to avoid these dangers. But, bottled water is often nothing more than treated tap water, with even more added chemicals. What about the plastic bottles? What chemicals are being used for their production? Those chemicals eventually end up in what we think is safe water. There are no current regulations for the bottled water industry.
How often are you purchasing bottled water at the grocery store, the convenience store, the airport or the movie theater, anywhere? To top it all off you are paying for (in 90% of the cases) acidic water, and the plastic bottle leaches chemicals into the water. These facts are easily verified with just a few keystrokes.
Maybe even more troubling than the individual cost of bottled water to each family budget, is the disposal issue. A mountain of discarded, non-biodegradable containers is a potential ecological disaster. How often are you purchasing bottled water?
These types of water systems actually deplete water from trace minerals, which make it acidic. Furthermore, the way our municipal water is treated, cleaned and filtered, the H2O molecules form what is known as 'long chain' molecules and requires a great deal of body energy is to convert it into water our bodies can really use. As a result, we have become a generation of dehydrated people.
Having too much acid in your body can weaken all your systems. Your body has to borrow minerals from your bones, teeth and organs to neutralize excess acidity. High acid levels might lead to diarrhea, osteoporosis, anxiety, rheumatoid arthritis and impaired immune function. Cancer cells thrive in acidic environments.
Clean, healthy drinking water is essential to a child’s proper mental and physical development. According to the EPA, lead in drinking water contributes to 480,000 cases of learning disorders in children each year in the United States alone.
In order to capitalize on the health benefits of water, it is essential to draw from a clean water source.
The only way to ensure pure, contaminant-free drinking water is through the use of a filtration system.
Clean water, alkaline water has many benefits. In 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for his pioneering discovery of cancer cells not being able to reproduce in an alkaline environment.
