Is Your Drinking Water Really Healthy?
Did you know that our regular drinking water lack the minerals that our bodies need? Water purification methods like distillation, membrane filtration (reverse osmosis or nanofiltration), and other technology eliminate bacteria, impurities and also essential trace minerals from water.
Why are trace minerals important?
- Trace minerals are components of enzyme systems that facilitate a myriad of biochemical reactions in our bodies. They are essential for maintaining optimal health and health issues could result from a mineral deficiency.
- Trace minerals are constantly used by the body, yet they are not produced naturally and must be replenished regularly through diet, ideally in a balanced proportion.
What Defines a Healthy Drinking Water?
1. Clean water is necessary for proper body functions. It should be devoid of harmful substances such as chlorine, heavy metals (e.g. lead and mercury), bacteria and chemicals.
2. It should be mineralised with healthy, balanced ionic minerals.
- Your body can better absorb the minerals in drinking water as compared to those from food.
3. It should not be acidic.
- Purified water tends to be acidic due to low level of alkaline reserve minerals. Drinking the acidic water for long-term could cause the body being constantly shifted toward acidity and serves as a breeding ground for diseases.
- Mineral replenishment helps create an alkaline water, which can assist in regulating the body’s pH balance. By preventing enormous fluctuations in acid-base balance, the body has a higher tendency to defend against illness.
