The Benefits of Filtered Water

Filtered water is particularly beneficial to your health and wellbeing. When given the choice to drink filtered or non-filtered water, consider the following points that could influence your decision. Human bodies are made up of approximately 60% water. Nevertheless, people are continually losing water, mainly through urine and sweat and become dehydrated quickly. Drinking filtered water increases hydration to improve functionality of internal organs and makes your skin glow.

Filtered water improves daily routine and retains healthy minerals. Minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium should remain in the water as they improve taste, health and are vital to the wellbeing of the body [4]. All unwelcome impurities such as chlorine that makes skin dry and rash are eliminated while still absorbing all mineral deposits that are supposed to be in water [4]. Another downside of tap water is that it tends to taste and smell like chlorine. Often by choosing filtered water, people find that the taste improves.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (2015) [2], drinking filtered water is always advised, especially when ill. Chronic mild dehydration can cause headaches and migraines. By drinking filtered water, it can eliminate the pain of a headache altogether [1]. Partnered with a nutritious diet, clean filtered water can make a world of difference by preventing the occurrence of colds and flus, especially in the winter months.

As stated by the Human Performance Resource Center (2016) [3], as soon as the temperature drops in the cooler seasons, it is recommended that people consume more water than when it is scorching hot, due to dry weather. In this climate infections spread fast and doctors recommend staying hydrated as it can fend off any contagion. Filtered water also flushes out damaging contaminants through the lymph system.

Other illnesses that can be reduced by filtering water include functional gastrointestinal disorders [1]. This syndrome can result in constipation and irregular bowel movement. Toxins that are not filtered out of tap water include aluminium and prescription drugs, among 2,100 others [1]. Whereas filtered water eliminates impurities and improves gastrointestinal function. Bowel movement discomfort may be related to whether your water has been filtered or not [2].

Another remarkable benefit of choosing filtered water is how it supports the body’s immune system and mental health. Frequently drinking filtered water during the day does wonders for the brain battling against dehydration and is a necessary step towards being mentally healthy. In addition, contaminants in tap water like arsenic and aluminium affect the overall natural growth and development of children. Filtered water is also important for pregnant women and children who are prone to infections due to weak immune systems and an unborn foetus can potentially have birth defects due to contamination [1]. Children and young adults can grow and develop healthier with the assistance of filtered water.

Investing in a water filter is an affordable way to ensure you and your loved ones are drinking safe and healthy water. People need to be aware of the potentially harmful effects of tap water. Filtered water also plays a part in protecting the environment. Buying bottled water and using unnecessary plastic increases pollution in the ocean. However reusable bottles restrict the damaging effects on the environment. Keep cool this Summer with filtered water for your home or office to save money, the environment and stay healthy.
