Benefits of Filtered Water

Drinking plenty of pure filtered water everyday is really good for us, health experts recommend adults drink between 6-8 glasses of water a day to keep our bodies healthy and hydrated. You will benefit in many ways if you regularly drink water, but why choose filtered water over standard tap water?

There are many reasons why you should opt to drink filtered water;

  • Full of essential minerals
  • Chlorine content significantly reduced
  • Reduced risk of certain cancers and disease
  • Great for children’s immune systemWater glasses
  • Many health benefits
  • De-toxifying
  • Aids digestion
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Improves concentration
  • Keeps skin hydrated and supple
  • Calorie free – Aids weight loss

Although all tap water is cleaned and safe to drink by the time it reaches our kitchen tap we must remember it has travelled a long, long way to get to our house picking up tiny bits of dirt along the way. With a filtered tap, any little nasties that may have been collected along the way will be removed before it reaches your glass. Turn on your filtered tap and your glass will be filled with fresh, pure filtered water full of essential minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium. Filtered tap water leaves the essential minerals in the water.

A good carbon filtered tap significantly reduces the chlorine content in your water. By removing chlorine and chlorine by-products from the water it protects the body from disease, reduces the risk of certain cancers and makes your water smell and taste better too. No one wants a glass of water that smells like your local swimming pool!

Filtered Water Taps

 

Pure, filtered water is brilliant for children and their developing immune systems, in fact, it is an excellent healthy option for all the family. It’s a great calorie free substitute to sugar laden drinks that often contribute to weight gain. Drinking lots of filtered water every day will naturally detoxify your body as it promotes kidney function meaning you’ll also have healthier skin. It will help you to digest and absorb nutrients from food and will improve circulation too.

 

There are so many benefits to be gained from filtered water. How wonderful it would be to have it available on demand, whenever you left a little thirsty; it’s easy to achieve, especially with your own filtered water tap. Here are a few options on how to get filtered water at home or in the office which will suit all budgets;

Filter Jugs

The cheapest option is the filter jug; simply fill with tap water and pop it in your fridge to cool whilst the water passes through a charcoal filter. Brita do a great range, however, you are restricted by the capacity of the jug, unless you plan ahead you’ll have to wait for the water to pass through the filter plus cartridges need to be replaced periodically.

American Style Fridge Freezer

The American Style Fridge Freezer is a popular choice in many newly renovated kitchens. Many models offer filtered water and ice on demand and certainly add a style statement to any interior. They are expensive and bulky so if space is restricted or you’re working to a small budget then this option isn’t ideal.

Water Switch

Another great option is the addition of The Quooker Water Switch to your existing tap. This clever gadget allows you to switch from tap water to cold filtered water easily and is compatible with all taps. You would still need to change filters from time to time.

Office Water Cooler

Most offices around the country have a large water cooler installed for staff to stay hydrated; don’t forget the more filtered water that you drink the more alert you are. Office water coolers are usually rented, which can become costly over the years. They are extremely heavy too which can make refilling the barrel very difficult, unless you have a strong colleague in the office who’s willing to help (or show off!) Why not opt for a filtered water tap in the office kitchen and replace the bulky water station with a nice bit of greenery, plants are said to reduce stress in the office!
