Why Every Home Benefits From a Water Filtration System
Drinking water in the U.S. is not as crystal clear as most people think. The Environmental Protection Agency regulates 80 known hazardous chemicals, including lead and arsenic, allowed to exist in small levels in drinking water. However, other harmful substances are cropping up in America’s drinking water, including “forever chemicals” that don’t break down under typical environmental conditions. Legal drinking water doesn’t necessarily mean healthy drinking water.
The good news is, homeowners can take steps to provide cleaner, healthier drinking water in their home by installing a water filtration system - and reap extra benefits in addition to the filtering!
Better Tasting Everything - Food and Drink
Among the chemicals that crop up in American drinking water are lead, chlorine, and copper. Do those sound appetizing? No. But whenever drinking water is used for cooking, making coffee, or baking a cake, those chemicals taint the flavor of the food. Cooks, for example, find themselves using more spices and sugar to get the flavor right in baked goods or meals. Filtered drinking water removes the chemicals and compounds, ruining the taste of food and drinks, bringing out the best tasting flavors food and drink can offer.
Protects Against Chemical Compromised Water
Many chemicals regulated by the EPA are known to cause bodily damage over long-term exposure. They are allowed to exist in drinking water because, in small doses, they are harmless. But after a lifetime of drinking compromised water, the body may develop illnesses or diseases from the hazards.
Filtered drinking water has less risk of chronic exposure to harmful toxins, bacteria, algae, and diseases found in America’s drinking water. It keeps family and pets safe from the detrimental effects of contaminants.
Gives the Body a DAILY Detox
Some health gurus refer to too many toxins in the body as “high body toxicity.” The body removes toxins through the liver and kidney, providing enough fluids to keep the cycle going. However, drinking chemical ladened water does not make detoxing easier. Instead of just processing internal body toxins, the kidney and liver must process chemicals and toxins in the water, too!
