Water is an essential part of everyday life for the millions of people living inthe United States.

However, even though water is universally recognized as the source of life, the truth is that it can easily be the source of ailments and other diseases as well.

The primary causes of these complications are contaminants. When water becomes contaminated, it can quickly become a breeding place for bacteria, which in turn causes a variety of health complications.

The Best Type of Drinking Water

From tap water to bottled water to distilled water, and even alkaline water, the options for portable drinking water for many Americans are endless.

The truth, however, is that many of these options are not necessarily safe.

Unsafe elements such as pathogens, chlorine, and pesticides often find their way into tap water.

Distilled water is acidic and draws out nutrients from your body.

Also, about 40% of bottled water is merely bottled-up tap water; and the plastic bottles are made with a chemical called bisphenol A (BPA). BPA is a synthetic hormone disruptor that has been linked to many health problems including obesity, prostate cancer and learning and behavioral problems.

The safest option is drinking purified (or filtered) water. Listed below are some of the elements removed with water filters:

  • Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs): These are harmful elements resulting from disinfecting water with chlorine. Water filters will typically reduce the chlorine levels in your water by 99%.

  • Arsenic: This is powerful carcinogenic that has been linkedto several types of cancer. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, as many as 56 million Americans drink tap water with arsenic at unsafe levels. Water filters reduce this risk drastically (our Aquaperform is NSF certified to remove pentavalent Arsenic)

  • Aluminum: This has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, hyperactivity, learning disabilities in children, skin problems, and liver disease. Using water filters can protect you and your family.

  • Trace Pharmaceuticals: Commonly used drugs such as Ibuprofen are now finding their way into many water supplies. A good water filtration system such as our bestselling Aquaversa will remove Ibuprofen and other pharmaceuticals from drinking water (as certified by NSF Standard 401).

  • Lead: If you're familiar with the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, than you know the primary contaminant was lead. Every drinking water system we sell at Vortex Pure Water is certified to remove lead at concentrations beyond what occurred in Flint's drinking water.

Do not be fooled by the hype of bottled, distilled or vitamin water companies. As you can see from the evidence and statistics outlined above, filtered water is a healthier and much safer option than any other type of drinking water available.

Now that you know the best type of water to drink, the next section discusses some of the additional benefits of actually drinking it.

Benefits of Drinking Purified or Filtered Water

With the human body made up of about 60% water, it is no surprise that we lose a tremendous amount of hydration throughout the day.

Therefore, it is crucial that you always replenish your body with clean water. Keeping well-hydrated ensures that your body stays in excellent condition and keeps many ailments at bay. Here are some of the most significant benefits of drinking clean, filtered water.

  1. Purified Water Elevates Your Energy Levels Throughout The Day

The number one drink for boosting energy levels for many Americans is coffee. While coffee may indeed give you a quick boost of energy, it will likely leave you feeling distracted and jittery. On the other hand, filtered water can quickly restore your quickly restore your powerand also keep your brain functioning optimally. And if you are going to drink coffee, improve the taste and cleanliness of it by brewing it with filtered water.

  1. Purified Water Detoxifies Your Body Naturally

Kidneys are one of the most critical parts of our body. They help us detoxify by removing wastes like lactic acid and other toxins from the body. However, they can only do this when there is a constant supply of clean, purified water. Your kidneys could get damagedwithout an adequate amount of water needed to dilute the waste it secretes.

  1. Purified Water Gives Your Skin a Healthier Glow

Not everyone can be a model or celebrity and afford to spend thousands of dollars on skincare every month. However, everyone can afford to drink clean and filtered water, and studies have revealed that is enough to give your skin a healthy, beautiful look. Purified water can help your skin with everything from complexion to elasticity, thereby giving you a more youthful glow.

  1. Purified Water Helps With Weight Loss

The human body tends to absorb sugar and carbohydrates (which builds up fat) unless it gets a constant supply of clean water. If you want to lose weight fast, drinking water is the safest solution because it metabolizes fat and it does not contain any calories. Furthermore, drinking water before a meal helps people consume fewer calories because the body feels full.

  1. Purified Water Filters Away Harmful Chemicals

Thisis by far the most obvious benefit of installing water filtration systems. As we have mentioned in the previous section, municipal tap waters are laden with harmful chemicals such as chlorine, chloramines, arsenic, and lead. Purifying your water ensures you get rid of these toxic chemicals. The Flint, Michigan water crisis is enough to motivate anyone concerned about their health to start taking the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families.

  1. Purified Water Helps With Digestion 

Another benefit of drinking purified water is its ability to aid in digestion. It helps the body absorb and digest food, thus keeping constipation, bloating and the resultant stomach pain at arm’s length. Drinking filtered water not only prevents the excess absorption of sugars and harmful chemicals in your body, but it also helps to break down significant bits of food so your body can absorb the nutrients. This, in turn, promotes proper metabolism and regular bowel movements.

  1. Purified Water Prevents Cancer

A proper filtration device can remove all the byproducts of cancer-causing chemicals that enter our water systems. In fact, filtering your drinking water can reduce the chances of becoming infected with rectal and bladder cancers resulting from the byproducts of chlorine. Thisis especially important for families with kids because they have weaker immune systems and are more likely to be infected. Nevertheless, nobody is safe, so filtering your water supply is the most reliablething you can do to protect yourself and your family.

Water is an essential part of being healthy. The cleaner the water you consume, the more the benefits outlined above will start to manifest. Your body is doing more than enough to filter out the numerous toxins we consume every day, so ensure you do not make matters worse by drinking contaminated water.

Remember, if you're not using a filter, YOU are the filter!
