When we think about water, we don’t usually think about how it’s processed. Most people will grab any bottled brand out of the cooler, or not think twice about putting their glass under their sink’s faucet tap. Because all water is the same, right?
All water may “taste the same” to some, but as simple as water is, there are many complex factors that go into creating the best quality drinking water. It’s important to know that not all water is created equal and that bad water can lead to major health issues, which is why choosing quality drinking water is essential to our overall well-being.
“Bad water” is a pretty vague term, but it describes any water that has naturally occurring or inorganic matter such as metals, bleach, salts, pesticides, or bacteria present in it. These contaminants can produce waterborne viruses, which can make you ill.
So on a positive note, let’s break down what happens when we treat our bodies right and drink good quality water.
Flushes Out Toxins
In our modern day world, we are surrounded by toxins. From pollution to the processed foods we eat to the medication we take, toxins are present and make their way into our systems daily.
Although there is no escaping these toxins, quality drinking water can help us to flush these toxins out and cleanse our bodies so that we can continue to perform at optimal function. This is why it’s important to make sure we're getting the adequate intake of water daily for our body’s specific needs. If our bodies are not getting enough, toxins can build up causing health issues.
Gives You Energy
Our bodies are made up of mostly water with the brain and heart being 73% water, our lungs 83%, and our bones 31%. It only makes sense that in order to keep everything in check and working smoothly, we need to stay hydrated with the proper fuel: quality drinking water.
Good clean water gives us the energy we need to keep our bodies running, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally, as well. If we're lacking the water we need, our brains start to shut down and get foggy. Dehydration is one of the most common causes of fatigue, but it’s not something we tend to think about when our eyes start feeling heavy. If you find yourself feeling sluggish despite getting a good night’s sleep, do yourself a favor and up your water intake.
Prevents Diseases & Conditions
Drinking bad or unsafe water can put us at risk for a myriad of diseases. Common fatal diseases such as the norovirus, cholera, hepatitis A, and typhoid can all occur because of the consumption of contaminated water.
Keeping your body hydrated with clean water has also been proven to prevent hypertension, which 45% of Americans suffer from. And if you’re still not convinced that water is one of the main factors to keeping our bodies healthy, just think about how long we’ve been drinking water. Since we were babies, right?
Well, studies have proven that if babies or young children are exposed to unsafe water, there is a strong possibility for late mental development, short attention spans, and learning difficulties. It seems it’s important for everyone to have water that is safe to drink!
Aids In Digestion
If you’ve ever had digestion trouble, you’ve probably reached for an over-the-counter solution that promises fast relief. And though that may work temporarily, the underlying cause is most likely dehydration.
Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is key to maintaining normal bowel function. Water is what keeps everything moving through your system smoothly so you don’t experience constipation or other gastrointestinal issues.
So How Do You Ensure Your Water Is Quality?
Finding quality drinking water doesn’t have to be a challenge. Plus, you don’t have to spend money every single week buying gallons and 24-packs of bottled brands that put plastic into our landfills. No, the answer is much simpler than that: You can use a reverse osmosis system.
With the AquaTru Reverse Osmosis Water System, you can make quality drinking water from your tap. This system is the first of its kind! The AquaTru Reverse Osmosis Water System is a countertop reverse osmosis water purifier certified to NSF standards to remove 82 contaminants, including Lead, Chromium-6, Chlorine, Fluoride, PFAs, Nitrates and more.
This convenient countertop system brings the technology of a bottling factory into your home for fresh, clean, quality water with a simple touch of a button, turning your tap water into water you can feel good about consuming.
The osmosis process works in 4 steps:
- With AquaTru’s mechanical pre-filter, sediments and cloudiness, also termed “turbidity,” is removed from the tap water.
- Then its activated carbon pre-filter removes 99% of chlorine and chloramines.
- The high-efficient reverse osmosis filter then gets to work removing toxic inorganic contaminants hidden in the tap water.
- Lastly, the activated coconut shell carbon VOC filter removes the organic chemicals to ensure that you get great tasting water each time.
When you have the promise and security of good, clean, and quality water at home, you’ll feel at ease knowing that your body is getting what it needs to run efficiently in good health.
