There's Something In The Water!
We all know we are meant to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, to stay hydrated and healthy. That's largely because our bodies are made up of 50-75% water (depending on age, gender etc). Our brains are about 70% water!
But what sort of water should we be drinking? Tap water? Bottled water? Filtered water? It can be a bit confusing, right?
Back in the day, we all drank out the tap - or even the hosepipe! But then we got wise about what actually goes into our tap water. At the very least, it has been 'treated' with potentially dangerous chemicals, including chlorine and fluoride.
Bacteria, Heavy Metals and Carcinogens
However, because of the way it's collected, it could be carrying many more contaminants, including bacteria, poisonous heavy metals, and carcinogens.
That's when bottled water got popular. Often labelled 'natural spring' or 'mineral' water, we thought we were onto a good thing. Wrong! For starters, many of those brands had never even seen a natural spring!
Then there are the toxins that seep out of the plastic bottles. Not forgetting the fact that plastic bottles are not sustainable, and are causing major landfill issues.
Bottled Water Is Not The Answer
So what's the solution? It's actually quite simple and, in the long run, far more cost effective than buying bottled water.
The very best thing you can do is grab yourself an Alkaline Water System. This is a specialised filter system that transforms your drinking water into healthy, alkaline mineral water.
The great thing about this system is that the water not only tastes delicious, but it's good for you, too. We talked last week about the benefits of maintaining a healthy pH level, and this will definitely help.
Pure Healthy Drinking Water
The water produced by this method sits at around 7.4pH. However, you can boost that to 8.5pH by using an Alkalinity and Anti-Oxidant Enhancer.
This water system also reduces fluoride by up to 90%, and is BPA and Phthalate-free, with the glass bottom tank option. The filters are so well designed for removing toxins and bacteria, they get them down to 0.2 micron.
Suddenly, you're not just drinking water, you're drinking healthy water. This water can hydrate at a cellular level, help your cells release toxic waste, and nourish your body with essential minerals and electrolytes.
Test Your Water Regularly
It's a great idea to also get yourself a proper Water pH Test Kit. This nifty little kit is easy to use and can determine whether you need to add the Enhancer.
The Zazen Alkaline Water System offers some great options. The Ceramic Filter - made of highly compressed Diatomite earth - filters bacteria, E. coli, giardia, and other organic matter. It also removes sediment and rust.
The Multi Stage Filter Cartridge reduces fluoride by up to 90%, and removes lead, arsenic, cadmium, chlorine, MTBEs, THMs, and many other toxins known to cause cancer. It even filters out odours!
We'll Drink To That!
For best results, it's recommended that you place Zazen Silver Stones in the tank, to keep your filtered water clean and fresh. Silver has a natural anti-bacterial effect, and will not leach into your water.
If you're keen to get your family drinking more water, this should do the trick. Healthy, natural and delicious - we'll drink to that!
