The Benefits of Filtered Water
5 Reasons why filtered water trumps both tap and bottled water
Considering water is the most essential element to our survival, many people don’t put a lot of thought about what kind of water we are putting into our bodies.
However they should, because there can be a huge difference in quality between filtered drinking water, tap water and bottled water.
There is a lot of speculation on the internet about which is best in terms of quality versus cost. Now let’s put this argument to bed once and for all. The safest, healthiest and most cost effective source of water is filtered.
In this blog we are going to look at the benefits of filtered water that make it the best choice.
Hopefully it will persuade you to invest in a filtration system.
There are numerous contaminants in both tap water and bottled water. While a glass won’t hurt you, being exposed to these organic and inorganic contaminants over a long period of time can have a negative effect on your health.
It can weaken your immune system, cause cellular damage and even contribute to the big C (cancer) through cell mutation. Changing to filtered water from tap water (which contains chlorine by-products) can significantly reduce your risk of rectal, colon and bladder cancer. It also retains the healthy minerals deposits in the water that help balance the pH level.
Even the most expensive water filter costs a pittance compared to bottled water. Of course, this is comparing the costs over a long period of time. Even after 5 years, it becomes much more cost effective.
As well as the financial benefits, you are also cutting down on the amount of plastic bottles you are buying, which is great for the environment.
Our bodies are composed of 60-65% per cent water, so habitually drinking water is going to help improve the your body functions. Toxin free, mineral rich water is obviously going to be better at contributing to your overall health.
However, the health benefits can also extend to growing children. Clean water is essential for physical and mental development – the EPA in the United States have linked lead in water to learning disorders.
Obviously, if you are healthier on the inside it is going to show on the outside. Drinking filtered water can actually make you look better!
Apart from the obvious health benefits, which will naturally improve your natural appearance, the absence of chlorine in the water will make your hair, skin and nails look much heathier.
Because filtered water removes chlorine and other contaminates, it contributes to a better, more natural taste. If you have better tasting water in your home, you might feel compelled to drink more of it instead of resorting to cordials and soft drinks, which will be much better for you.
As you can see, the benefits of a filtration system extends beyond having clean, tasty water to drink – it can also improve your bank balance and, most importantly, keep you healthy.
