Water makes up 2/3 of our body, so it is very important that we stay hydrated. Drinking the necessary amount of water benefits our heart, skin, better mood and gives us energy. The benefits of a drinking regime have already been described many times.
Tap water contains hormones
The tap water in our country is safe and the water companies pay a lot of attention to its treatment. The water from the tanks is gradually subjected to the process of filtration, screening, aeration and disinfection. Nevertheless it fails to rid it of trace amounts of antibiotics, contraceptive hormones, pesticides, analgesics or drugs. Sometimes it also smells like chlorine.
It then travels to our homes through pipelines, which can also negatively affect its final taste. Therefore, not everyone likes tap water.
Bottled versus tap
Many people solve this situation by buying bottled water. Someone because they don’t like the faucet, others don’t believe that it didn’t come into contact with contaminants during the entire process.
There is a large amount of bottled water on the market. From clean to strongly sparkling. The prevailing opinion is that bottled water is safe. But no one cares that it doesn’t have to be fresh. In its plastic packaging, it could have been in storage for a long time. And perhaps at the same time she was experiencing all kinds of temperature jumps, which probably did not benefit her quality.
So if you are one of those who prefer to buy water, try to think about getting a filter kettle. It will definitely pay off. Bottled water is not cheap, regardless of the amount of plastic we pollute the planet with.
The solution is filtration
The filter kettle removes limescale from the water. This can lead to the formation of air bubbles in the water, which in turn contribute to abdominal pain. It also removes the chlorine used for disinfection. Its amount in water is really small, but if you eliminate even that, it will only benefit your health.
Filtered water tastes and smells much better, it is free of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and all sediments. It will strengthen your immune system as it helps flush out toxins and other impurities from the body. It does not burden the kidneys, which are crucial in removing waste from our body.
Stop spending money on bottled water and start filtering it. You will get clean water with an excellent taste and you will save money in the long run. Modern filters can filter up to 150 l of water.
