Water is essential for our survival and wellbeing, but not all water is created equal. A potent substance for overall health, clean, filtered water is one of the most essential foundations in supporting our well-being.
Adequate hydration through filtered water provides an abundance of benefits, supporting our health, energy, and vitality for years to come.
With our range of benchtop gravity-fed water filters, you’ll be able to eliminate any unwanted contaminants from your drinking water before they enter your body while also preserving the healthy minerals that are vital for proper bodily functions.
The Importance of Water in the Body
Water is essential for feeling energised, rehydrating the body and supporting its many processes. It is required for biochemical reactions to occur as well as for proper digestion, nutrient absorption, transportation, thermoregulation, waste elimination and more. It will keep you feeling vital, alert, energised and glowing.
Contaminants in Australian Tap Water
It is conservatively estimated that there are approximately 50 chemicals added to Australia’s water supplies before it reaches our tap for a variety of purification and health purposes. These additives ensure that water is fit for human consumption, with the most common being chlorine, fluoride and aluminium.
These numbers do not take into account contamination from by-products such as chemical fertilisers, animal waste, toxic waste, oil, plastics and detergents. Some of the common contaminants found in Australian tap water include heavy metals such as lead, copper, aluminium and mercury, chemicals such as chlorine or similar used in sterilisation of the water, pesticides, fluoride, hormones, pharmaceutical residues, micro-plastics, bacteria and more.
The Benefits of Drinking Filtered Water
When you drink unfiltered water, your body has to adopt the function of a filter, working twice as hard to remove harmful chemicals and contaminants from the water before it can be properly utilised. By opting to drink clean, filtered water, the filtration process is already done for you and your body can process the water more effectively and quickly. Obviously, the easier we can make things for our body to perform its natural functions the greater chance we have to feel our best.
Filtered water is also better tasting and more refreshing than tap water. Many people find that tap water has an unpleasant taste or odor, which can be caused by the presence of chlorine, sediment, or other impurities. Filtering water can remove these impurities and improve the taste and odor of the water.
In addition to the health benefits, drinking filtered water can also be better for the environment. Bottled water is a popular alternative to tap water, but it comes with a significant environmental cost. Plastic water bottles contribute to the global plastic pollution problem, and the production and transportation of bottled water requires a significant amount of energy and resources. By using a water filter, you can reduce your reliance on bottled water and do your part to protect the environment.
