Choose spring water over reverse osmosis

Contaminant-free water is a very attractive proposition. Especially as now more than ever we understand the crucial benefits of maintaining proper daily hydration. And reverse osmosis water certainly goes a long way to delivering H20 free of contaminants. Yet the problem is, reverse osmosis flushes out all the goodness too. So rather than healthy natural water brimming with goodness, reverse osmosis tends to deliver starkly stripped water without much left in to nourish our bodies.When you want to drink for your health, drink natural spring water instead. 

Watered down health and hydration

Traditionally water has been recognised as a great source of health and wellbeing. But only when consumed in its most natural form – and it doesn’t get more natural than spring water. Modern purifying processes like reverse osmosis can achieve quite the opposite effect. Indeed water lacking minerals has actually been linked to health issues like:

  • Bone density deficiencies
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Joint degeneration

Reverse osmosis is effectively mineral-free which leaves it highly acidic. Such acidity can upset the balance of your blood pH. Meanwhile key minerals can be lost as your body goes to work to restore acidic balance.

Reverse osmosis water leaves a big carbon footprint

Much more water is used in reverse osmosis process than the H20 that makes it into your glass or bottle. Reverse osmosis pushes water through a carefully punctured plastic membrane. Following this the system is backflushed with water too. So much precious Adam’s ale goes down the drain. Meanwhile the plastic membranes used to decontaminate reverse osmosis water wind up populating landfill. So the environmental implications of this process are negative and far-reaching.

By contrast, natural spring water comes largely as it is. Even bottled natural spring water can conscientiously reduce its carbon footprint. At Tranquil Water we refill and reuse all our bottled natural spring water. Then when a bottle has served its time, we never send it to landfill. Instead it goes to a professional Australian recycling company to be salvaged for future use.

So if you are tossing a coin between natural spring water or reverse osmosis water, the choice seems clear. Natural spring water is packed with purity and goodness galore. Plus it makes a minimal carbon footprint which is important in the water supply industry. Reverse osmosis water strips out the goodness alongside the contaminants – and is rather environmentally unfriendly too. Think before you drink – and hydrate with natural spring water. Your body and the environment will thank you.
