Water and you
Essential for Healthy Living
Water makes up over 70% of our bodies and is essential for our good health and well-being. Blood is 87% water, and our muscles, lungs, and brain also contain a lot of water.
Water is required to regulate the body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to all our organs. Water also transports oxygen to our cells, removes waste, and protects our joints and organs.
Drinking the highest quality natural spring water will ensure you get all you need from water, while enjoying a great fresh taste.
Grab that Bottle of Water
One of the most underestimated aspects of ones good health and wellbeing is drinking enough water. Most people drink water when they feel thirsty, which more often than not, means our bodies are greatly dehydrated and are letting us know that we need water now.
The average human needs about 2 litres of water per day and even more if exercising or in hot weather. Drinking water helps not only clean our internal systems, but keep us feeling young and energetic. So if you haven’t got that bottle of water on your desk as you’re reading this, we suggest now is a good time to start.
In addition, water is the most underrated aspect of weight loss. Water is a natural appetite suppressant. Do NOT underestimate the power of this statement. Lack of water can lead to over-eating.
You brain does not differentiate between hunger and thirst. So, when you think you are feeling hungry, your body may in fact be signaling to you that you are thirsty! If you are not consuming enough water each day and you feel hunger pains, chances are, your body really is crying out for water.
Better than the alternatives
It’s a sad fact that tap water does contain some chemicals, pollutants, bacteria and other contaminants. These elements not only affect the taste of the water, but they also reduce the water’s natural health benefits. In regards to filters, they start with tap water, not natural spring water. They only filter down to a 1 or 5 micron level, they don’t eliminate all the bacteria, they’re expensive to buy, and they require regular cleaning and maintenance.
There is much information online about which water is best for you, and most agree that natural spring water is second to none in promoting your health.
Why is bottled water better?
Ten years ago, hardly anyone bought bottled water. Today you can buy it in virtually every supermarket and convenience store in the country. Sales of bottled water are the fastest growing of any beverage in Australia.
The first thing people notice when they switch from tap water to bottled water is the improved taste and the clarity of the water. Indeed, once they start drinking bottled water on a regular basis, they rarely ever go back to tap water.
Having a hot and cold water cooler also improves your water drinking experience – allowing you to serve water at the temperature you prefer.
Bottled water is free of all the factors that people don’t like about tap water, such as bad tastes and odours. Plus it’s free of all the things you can’t detect that can be very harmful – like bacteria and chemicals. In fact, up to 50 chemicals may be added to tap water in order to “purify” it.
