Did you know that you use up to a pint of water per day just by breathing?
Water is the foundation of all life and its value to our bodies is immeasurable especially when you consider we are made of over 70% water and our body does not efficiently detoxify if we are dehydrated. Many of our basic metabolic processes, such as the regulation of body temperature, require enormous amounts of water up to 3 litres daily.
And if you drink coffee, you need to drink 2 cups of water just to break even as caffeine is a diuretic (makes you urinate). Lest we not forget when you are dehydrated you age at a much faster rate!
But let's take it one step further -- what kind of water are you and should you be drinking? This is a question I'm often asked as a nutritionist. As much as it would be nice to buy the Ferrari of water systems, it was simply not in my budget to spend thousands of dollars (nor is it even necessary!). So like many of you, I used a basic carbon filter to remove most of the chlorine and some of the heavy metals.
After doing a lot of research on water systems, I've learned I was right and it's not necessary to spend thousands of dollars on a filtration system but my basic carbon filter was NOT doing enough. This is why I wanted to try out Santevia because it filters out the following:
In addition, it also creates healthy mineralized and alkaline water. This is key!
Most tap water is very acidic. Acidic tissues are a magnet for disease. So it is extremely important that you at least filter your water with this pitcher. I've been drinking water from this pitcher, using the alkaline stick in my bottles on the go and the thermos for my tea for a month now and I cannot believe the difference. It tastes better, I feel better and I know it's good for me.
Plus, there's the huge benefit of saving the planet from countless water bottles that end up in landfill sites. Did you know that ONLY 40% of plastic water bottles are even recycled.
The time for change is now my joyous readers -- for the health of your body and the health of mama earth!
