Why Would or Should We Be Purifying Tap Water?

Our bodies are at least 75% water. Adults should drink a minimum of 8 glasses of pure water per day to prevent dehydration. Water is essential for our bodies to function properly as it facilitates nutrient absorption and removal of wastes.

We have 10 times the amount of bacteria cells living in our body than human cells. Having an adequate amount of flora (friendly gut bacteria) helps us manage weight control, as well as producing human chemicals that harness energy and allow more absorption of nutrients from our food. We also know that a healthy gut means a healthy, strong immune system and it also prevents us from many digestive issues which we commonly hear about today, such as: gas, bloating, stomach pain, reflux, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). Maintaining a well balanced and thriving inner ecosystem (inner gut) is vital in striving for optimum health, which means that having a good water purification system is absolutely crucial.

Tap water contains chlorine, which is designed to kill bad bacteria in our water supplies, however it also kills our good, friendly bacteria in our digestive track. Our water filters remove 99% of chlorine, as well as 99.99% of pathogenic bacteria (cholera, typhoid, salmonella, e. coli, fecal coliform), plus a lot more contaminants. The filters come in variety of 12 colours and are made from eco friendly stoneware, they are easy to maintain (requiring only one filter change once yearly), do not need any power source, and keep your water at a pleasant cool room-temperate all year round.

Make sure your filter of choice removes chlorine and fluoride (fluoride in our tap water is synthetic, not the naturally occurring fluoride, which means it is a byproduct of chemical fertilisers, a heavily toxic chemical, have a look for yourself, none of this information is hidden, it is only misleading).
