Every well-informed and written life style article we read about obtaining a ‘healthier’ lifestyle will tell you one thing!
You ought to be drinking more water.
So Why Aren’t You?
Most of us know that drinking water is essential to a good personal health. We know it instinctively.
Not only, does it help keep away many chronic illnesses. It can also be a big boost for those who are looking to lose more weight more rapidly.
Unfortunately, many can’t stand or dislike the taste of ‘plain’ water. When they feel thirsty they tend to reach for other beverages. Forgetting that they contain lots of sugar which is detrimental to their health.
In the UK, where the population has grown markedly obese in the last few decades. Research shows that 25% of all drinks that are consumed by adults contain ‘harmful’ amounts of sugar.
The amount goes up to 40% in teenagers and even more in small children.
If you care about your health at all these statistics should concern you.
Simply put, you are consuming way Too much Sugar in Your Everyday Beverages and Not Enough Water.
We can expect that it will come back to bite us later in life. It adds additional strain to our health care systems.
You might gain excess weight. Or, even develop a chronic illness that could have been totally avoided. If only, you had changed your habits or lifestyle to begin with.
Switching to drinking lots of water or drinking more water daily is not easy for those who aren’t used to it. Coffee, tea or juices and so many others aren’t healthy replacements.
It doesn’t’ Taste’ all that Good! – ZeroWater filtered water reduces background tastes.
If your problem with water is its taste there are things that you can do to improve it’s taste.
We recommend the use of more infused water. You crush and mix fruits and vegetables into your drinking water’s to improve it’s taste. It has many more health benefits than just the fact it increased your volume of hydration. After all, you consumed important nutrients that came from fruits and vegetables which are fresh and ideally in season. A simple question of min and maxing your intake and budget.
Recipes for infused water are many and varied and you can make your water taste the way you ‘fancy’ it. And this with minimal effort or worrying about the small print of ingredients on the last beverage you considered purchasing when you felt instinctively ‘thirsty’.
The best period and way to get as many nutrients as possible into your drinking water. Is to use fruits and vegetables that are in season. More, they often come at reduced prices during the their respective seasonal periods. Your household’s budget is not affected negatively. In most cases it will be influenced into a more positive cash flow direction. After all, you will be buying less single use plastic drinking water bottles for your family, friends or business.
While getting Proper Hydration is Important.
It is also vital to ensure that you are drinking only ‘clean’ water.
The water that comes from your tap at home or in your office is hardly that.
Many studies, from a very varied number of backgrounds have shown that drinking the ‘local’ tap water can sometimes be detrimental to your health.
It can contain all sorts of contaminants. It will depend on your personnel situation, geographical location and many other aspects. Nevertheless, prolonged intake of such contaminated tap water is sure to lead to all kinds of problems. Pets react differently. Their constitution is different, but they deserve consideration when contaminants are detected.
At one time or another, in your life, you may develop skin, stomach or worse, you may find you contracted a cancer problem.

A must see for all our news blog readers from Britain.
We quote: “In a unique science experiment, Dr George McGavin and Dr Zoe Laughlin chronicle the history of rubbish and explore how what we throw away tells us about the way we live our lives. With unprecedented access to one of the UK’s largest landfill sites, the team of experts spend three days carrying out tests all over the site, revealing the secret world of rubbish. They also carry out three other ‘archaeological’ digs into historic landfills to chart the evolution of our throwaway society. Ultimately, their quest is to discover whether the items we throw away today have any value for tomorrow’s world.”
