Filtered Water Versus Tap Water: “Tap” Into Filtered Water
It’s no secret that tap water has improved a lot in recent years. However, there are still chemicals in regular tap water that we all need to know about. Now, we all know that drinking water promotes a vast array of health benefits, but what good is it if this same tap water that we are drinking day after day, and cup after cup contains chemicals that can actually harm us.
Did you know that much of our plumbing infrastructure in the United States contains lead piping, lead service lines, or lead plumbing components, many of which are over 50 years old? According to a nationwide study from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), “Lead leaches into tap water through the corrosion of plumbing” (https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/su6104a1.htm) as out-of-date lead pipes and components start to break down. Therefore, if we drink a lot of tap water over time this contaminated drinking water can affect fertility, liver function and more.
Flouride is another concern, which should not be taken lightly. Once again when drinking a lot of tap water over time our thyroids could be damaged which, affects our thyroid hormone production. Flouride can also damage our brain function as it is a neurotoxin. A high fluoride content in water correlates with an up to seven-point decrease in IQ!
Last but not least we have chlorine and chloramine. Did you know that the government sanitizes water with chlorine? Large scale studies have linked chlorinated water to bladder and colorectal cancer, therefore, chloramine came into the picture, but not without its disruptions, as chloramine corrodes lead, thereby combining old lead pipes/plumbing with corroded lead caused by the chloramine and you have even more lead in your water than you had before not to mention that chloramine doesn’t kill pathogens nearly as well as chlorine does. Its byproducts are potential carcinogens, and you can’t remove chloramine or its byproducts through boiling or distilling.
Now Let’s “Tap” Into Filtered Water
After reading the above it’s no wonder that people are safely drinking filtered water. First of all the simple peace of mind knowing that our water is free from contamination alone would make anyone want to switch. However there are a lot more benefits to drinking filtered water then we know about.
Here are just a few:
- Improved Digestion
- Removes Chlorine
- Reduces Acid Reflux
- Has Anti-Oxidant Properties
- Reduces Cardio Stress
- Reduces Lime Scale
- Protects your Teeth
- Saves Money on Buying Bottled Water
- Saves the Planet by not Using Plastic
Join us in our quest to make ourselves the healthiest that we can be, while saving money and saving the planet all at the same time. This is a no brainer, win-win for all!
Pure Water in Every Drop!
