Why you should drink purified water
We discussed the importance of quality of water when watering your garden here – Why You Should Never Use Tap Water in Your Urban Garden. The same reasons discussed in that article about watering with cleaner water applies to our drinking water. Here is the list again of possible toxins in water and some great information is linked to each:
- Chlorine treatment by-products
- Radioactive Contaminants
- Vinyl Chloride
We really recommend filtering or purifying any water source you come in contact with because of this list of toxins. The number of health problems associated with these contaminants is astronomical. You would really need to research each toxin to see the health problems associated with the individual toxins in city water. Again, I have informative and reliable links discussing each toxin.
Finding the right purification system is a matter of preference. We recommend a good reverse osmosis system that is installed under your kitchen sink. Reverse osmosis systems purify the water coming out of your kitchen faucet making it the most convenient and best filtering system for drinking, cooking and cleaning from your kitchen sink.
There are other filters you can use, purification systems and distillers to distill your own water. Any way you choose would be better than just drinking water from the tap.
Everything has a downside or disadvantage, unfortunately. What is the downside of purified drinking water?
The downside to drinking purified water
The side effects of drinking water that has been too filtered are described in this article here. The article describes how reverse osmosis systems removes even the good electrolytes and minerals our body needs. If you are not aware of this, there could be some serious health side effects. So why is it important to have electrolytes and minerals in your water?
Why your body needs electrolytes and minerals
Your body needs electrolytes and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, and magnesium. There are other minerals your body needs that can be more commonly found in healthy foods. Your body uses these to:
- Balance the amount of water in your body
- Balance your body’s acid/base (pH) level
- Move nutrients into your cells
- Move wastes out of your cells
- Make sure that your nerves, muscles, the heart, and the brain work the way they should
Having these in the water will help increase the absorption rate to do the things listed above improving health. Maybe you can have purified water to remove those toxins and amend that water with something beneficial to generate the healthiest drinking water for your body.
About Himalayan salt
Himalayan salt or pink Himalayan salt you may be more familiar with is mined by hand at the foothills of the Himalayan mountains. The salt comes from a sea present during the Jurassic period that became landlocked. Over millions of years, the water evaporated and left behind the oldest and purest of sea salt.
The popularity of pink Himalayan salt is growing very rapidly with the knowledge of using it as an alternative to table salt. Table salt has the same properties but is heavily processed and includes additives that can be toxic just like the city water.
How to improve purified drinking water with Himalayan salt
A new method of absorbing Himalayan salt into drinking water is called Sole. This is an extremely easy way to add the health benefits of Himalayan salt to your drinking water. Adding Himalayan salt to your drinking water can give your water back those electrolytes and minerals needed in your body for optimal health. Here is a video that adds more information about Sole and how to make it – Health benefits of Sole and how to make it.
Himalayan salt is the purest and cleanest alternative we have found to amend purified water. Drinking Sole gives you the benefits of purified water and takes way the disadvantages. Problem solved!
