Here’s one of life’s little ironies, to be sure: nothing is more essential to our bodies than water, and yet most people don’t think a great deal about the quality of the water they consume. We just assume it’s all “ok”, and go on our merry ways.
By now you’ve probably guessed the truth: there are profound differences among the three primary kinds available to us: tap, bottled, and filtered water.
While there are opinions on all sides of that argument as to which is the best option of the three, we’re here to tell you that filtered water wins hands down, and here are several reasons why.
Not all tap water or bottled water is bad for you, but that chance always exists. Which is why filtered water came into being in the first place.
Water with high levels of organic and inorganic contaminants consumed over a long period of time can lead to severe health problems, including these:
- Weakened immune system
- Cellular damage
- Rectal, colon, and bladder cancer
Filtered water, on the other hand, can significantly reduce your risk of acquiring these and other health and related problems while retaining healthy mineral levels to help balance the pH level.
Even the most expensive water filter pales in comparison to what you pay for drinking equal amounts of bottled water. It will take a few years for the savings to manifest themselves, but they will. And then there’s the ecological benefit of reducing plastic water bottle production, especially when you consider that over half of those bottles are not recycled.
Drinking filtered water can make you look better! Apart from the obvious health benefits, which will naturally improve your 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 will naturally be inclined to increase your water consumption instead of resorting to soft drinks, sugary juices, and other less healthy choices.
