Your body is made up of anywhere between 70 - 80% water depending upon your age. Therefore, I believe it to be one of the most crucial and important things to consider in your day.
The level of purity is of concern these days they are even seeing signs of pharmaceuticals in the water because just as the air in your home is recycled so our water is also recycled through the water treatment plants. So what is a person to do? Our suggestion is to buy a filter. Reverse Osmosis filters seem to do a very good job of cleaning out many impurities. There are also Alkaline Water Systems which is what I highly recommend. They can be a bit pricier but I can justify the expense because my body is my most precious asset. Check out the picture to the side. I did a personal experiment just checking for chlorine, with my local tap water, reverse osmosis water as well as alkaline water and the results will tell you what the best drinking water is hands down.
You can find a spring close by and get the real good stuff. This is one of the many things that our bodies cry out for on a daily basis that we have seemed to ignore. The best thing to do every day is to make sure it is the first thing that enters your lips , then you will see that you will start craving it more often.
Also the impact that the bottled industry is having on the environment and on the communities where they extract the water is actually doing way more harm than good. Bottled water is creating dead zones in the ocean because of how plastic accumulates into one area of the ocean and are killing the sea animals in that area. These sea animals think it is food so they eat it, or they just get trapped underneath it all and cannot breath.
One last thing to consider about plastic is the fact that it has a tendency to leach chemicals into the water especially since it travels so many miles before it gets to the store and during transportation those bottles get pretty heated. So purchasing a BPA Free container will help control this issue and you will be environmentally friendly at the same time:)
