Did you know that regular tap water/ non-filtered water can contain a number of nasty toxins and impurities. Just some of these include:
- Heavy metals - like lead and mercury
- Volatile Organic Chemical's [VOC's]
- Potential endocrine disrupting chemicals
Not exactly what you want you to be putting in and on your body on a daily basis! And not only do they give your water an altered unpleasant colour, taste and smell but the long term cumulative effects of these contaminants can be detrimental to your health and cause illnesses. In fact, leading medical journal, The Lancet, have now classified fluoride as a neurotoxin.
By using a high quality water filter system, not only will these toxins be removed from your water, leaving you with only the naturally occurring minerals that are needed for optimum health, you will also have better smelling and tasting water, that is more environmentally friendly than bottled water.
There are a number of different water filters on the market. Some use the reverse osmosis method which is the most effective for removing all the nasties, but does leave the water totally stripped and acidic. Others use alumina, oxidised aluminium which we avoid here. We love the Waters Co brand of filters and sell these at Nourished Life because they keep the water alkaline, full of healthy minerals and avoid the RO and alumina methods.
The Bio Mineral Pot 400 bench-top water will remove all toxins and dirt from tap water as well as 99% of chlorine and produce an alkaline pH of around 7.4 – 8.2 to the filtered water. Alkaline water aids your body in neutralising acidic build up in our system caused by our diet and lifestyle, which is said to help to restore optimum functionality to major organs & immune system while improving energy and concentration.
The 1.5 litre Ace Pot is a is super handy, super effective water filter jug that removes fluoride and other impurities from tap water leaving clean, pure tasting, alkaline, energised water. It contains activated silver ionised carbon, alkaline minerals and magnets to re-mineralises ordinary tap water while filtering out chemicals. They are great for the home, workplace and even travel!
