Why do you need a water filter?
Water is an essential component of life sustenance. The average adult human body is 50-65% water. Water is necessary for proper functioning of the organ systems, metabolism, for absorption of nutrients as well as eliminating waste and toxins from the body. Said simply - we all need water, a lot of it - every day!
So, here come the questions: what kind of water is best for me and my family? Should we filter the tap water? What are the benefits and is it even necessary?
To validly answer these questions, here are some facts you should know:
- Water - being an excellent solvent - contains a lot of minerals - organic and inorganic, along with pollutants that affect its purity and quality.
- A large mineral portion of water is inorganic in nature. Inorganic minerals present in water cannot be absorbed by the body and is harmful instead.
- Some organic minerals present in trace amounts in water have high bioavailability and hence can be absorbed and used by the body.
Better explained by Harvey & Marilyn Diamond in ’FIT FOR LIFE II’:
“In addition, there are inorganic minerals ranging from mildly to highly toxic - sulphur, iron, gypsum, calcium, magnesium, lime, soda ash, fluorine, chlorine etc.
Tap water is not ideal for the human body because it contains inorganic minerals that the human body can neither use nor precipitate out. These inorganic minerals tend to hook up with cholesterol in the system and form a thick plaque in the arteries. Distilled water does not have this effect. When you eat a piece of fruit or a vegetable you are consuming distilled water.
Perhaps the most important thing to remember about tap water is this: Its more than just water! All chemicals are unusable poisons. Please do not make the grievous mistake of relegating your drinking water to a position of secondary importance or saying something like, "Hey, its just water. Water is water." That's not true. Water is life! The better your water, the better your life.”
Very rightly said: Water is life indeed, the better your water, the better your life.
Tap water has a high concentration of harmful, un-absorbable inorganic minerals and other pollutants, which need to be filtered out, alongside, some useful trace minerals need to be added to enhance the benefits - this is the function of a high-quality water filter.
