Healthy drinking water has four properties that set it apart from regular tap water and most bottled waters. To be considered healthy drinking water it must be:
Water filter systems remove these minerals from the water; therefore, re-mineralization is required to ensure the naturally occurring minerals are present. Drinking de-mineralized water can actually leach minerals from bones and teeth.
Ensures optimal health, water filter systems and contaminants typically leave the water acidic.
Great tasting water is fundamental to ensure proper hydration – when water does not taste good alternative beverages are typically selected.
Ensure that water is clean. The 1st step for healthy water is to ensure the water is clean which involves removing the toxic and harmful contaminants that are present in the water. Multi-stage filtering is required to ensure all the possible contaminants are removed.
Clean water is absolutely essential for all proper body functions, including skin and organ integrity, immune system balance, cellular respiration and repair, waste elimination, and longevity.
The primary purpose of clean water within the body is to transport nutrients to the cells and then transport waste by products to the eliminatory system. It is absolutely essential in maintaining the critical balance needed to support life. Yet this system, with its multiplicity of interrelated dependencies, can be grossly affected by minute traces of chemical toxins like chlorine.
The 2nd step for healthy water is to replenish the natural minerals in the water.
The 3rd step for healthy water is to ensure the pH is balanced to a healthy alkaline level.
Several research studies have demonstrated the presence of chemical carcinogens in surface, ground water, and municipal treated drinking water. However, often overlooked are the beneficial properties in drinking water that can help protect us from diseases such as cancers – natural minerals and alkaline pH.
Water that contains natural minerals and alkaline pH is associated with lower mortality from heart disease and cancer, and overall health. The drinking water in the 100 largest cities in the US were found to have 10% to 25% reduction in the amount of cancer deaths when the drinking water had a moderately high level of minerals and had an alkaline pH (above 7.0).
The 4th step for healthy water is to ensure the water has a great natural spring water taste.
