of Drinking Water
Water.... Sure, it’s a fundamental part of human existence
and life on earth. And it has been here with us since time immemorial.
Well....what's the big benefit of drinking water?
like there’s been a Renaissance in interest in the benefit
of drinking water all of a sudden, as if it had been in
hibernation and has re-emerged to become the latest trend.
Well, the first benefit of drinking
water is that we
need it because it makes up 90% of what constitutes our
bodies. We’d be dust without it! But obvious facts aside,
why should you run down to your local water store to look
for a 50-ounce bottle of spring fed “designer” mineral
water? I mean, c’mon, there’s water from the tap, right?
did you know that most tap water is full of chlorine or
bromine, both of which have been associated with various
illnesses, including heart disease? Not to mention
public water suppllies contain other things like
pesticides, herbicides, and minerals like mercury.
Maybe bottled water is like health insurance.

urge to have a taste in your mouth.
Lots of Choices in Flavor Available

water is that people are finally waking up to the fact
that it does have a taste. Thus, the astonishing array of
designer spring waters in the supermarket beverage section
hailing from the U.S., France, Iceland, Canada, Italy and
Now you can get the fun of drinking water in upscale
designer flavors. All of the brands claim that their
source is the purest and most free of the contaminants
that are found in most public water supplies.
in the end, it really is about taste. Public tap water
tastes like chlorine. Yuck! And of course, studies are
now showing that drinking chlorine every day in your
water is definitely not healthy.
I know that there
must be some benefits to drinking water because now my
boyfriend is drinking it all the time instead of juice or
soda pop....Which is great, because there’s always a
steady supply of my favorite water at his house now.
And we both feel more vital, have enhanced metabolic
functions and we have lots more love to share because of
the rejuvenating benefit of drinking water!
