Important Reasons to Purify Your Water


1. You & Your Family’s Health

The most important reason of our 5 part mini blog series that we’ll discuss is the benefits of what drinking purified water has on your family and loved ones. Purified water is vital for you and your family’s wellbeing and staying hydrated is one of the most important things to remember. The human brain is composed of 95% water; blood is 82% water and the lungs are nearly 90% water.

Water is also the single most critical nutrient for health, growth, and development. If you are drinking tap water, bore water, tank water, desalinated, recycled or treated dam water then your drinking water could be contaminated with bacteria, blue green algae, sediment and more.  This means that the water authorities need to add chemicals to combat these problems. Unfortunately it’s these chemicals that are added which are harmful to our bodies. Purified water is needed for every cell in your body and it also helps us to digest food, convert it to energy and get rid of waste, which are all essential for good health.

Encouraging children to drink water from a young age is also vital to set them on the path of good health. If you need help with getting the kids to drink water, read our past blog, ‘7 Of My Tried & Tested Tips to Make Kids Drink More Water’.

2. The Greener Option

Aussies spend more than half a billion dollars on bottled water and end up recycling only 36% of their plastic bottles. Our oceans are becoming more and more congested with billions of plastic bottles and packaging with 80% of our plastic waste ending up in our ocean.  More than half the damage could’ve been reduced if everyone stopped buying bottled water and drank purified orfiltered water from their tap. You can read more about the devastating effects plastic is having on our environment in our most recent blog ‘How Plastic Bottles Once Saved The World’.

There is an easy and cheap alternative to purchasing bottled water when you are out, once you have a Pure Water Systems water purifier or filter in your home, then all you need is a BPA free drinking bottle that is made from safe materials. Just by filling up your drink bottle you are not only saving yourself $2 every time, but you are also helping to save the earth from choking on plastic. There are many kinds of different drink bottles out there, and we have put them up against each other in one of our past blogs ‘What is Safe Water Bottle’ from glass to aluminium and in between, so if you would like more information on what we have classed as a safe drink bottle then check it out. Also, have a look at our Pure Water Systems BPA free Stainless Steel Sports Drink Bottles that we have available for purchase.

 

3. Reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia; it damages the brain which then leads to memory loss. At this stage, there is no cure or treatment to stop or reverse it and in fact it actually worsens as time goes by.  When we drink water straight from the tap, it is believed that the rain washes aluminium particles out of the air and into our water supply. According to evidence, aluminium has long been known to affect and cause damage to nerves or nerve tissue, with chronic exposure being a factor in many neurological diseases, including dementia, autism, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.

The body naturally guards against aluminium by absorbing less than 1% of dietary aluminium and effectively getting rid of it via the kidneys,  although it’s worth knowing that aluminium accumulates with age in lung, bone and brain tissue, and this is what leads to the indication of aluminium and the association it has with Alzheimer’s.
When aluminium largely builds up in tissues such as the brain, it has the potential to cause serious harmful neurological effects.  If you drank the standard 1-2 litres of water from your tap per day, you could be exposing your body to unnecessary aluminium every day without knowing it. Studies note that there is a higher concentration of Alzheimer’s where there is also a higher concentration of aluminium in the drinking water.
Although there is debate surrounding aluminium and it causing Alzheimer’s, it definitely doesn’t hurt to be on the safe side.   The best way to protect yourself is to drink water from a Pure Water Systems water purifier, and minimize your use of vaccines and other drugs that are often contaminated with aluminium.

4. Save Money

It is a known fact that most bottled water is far more expensive than petrol these days and as discussed in our last blog How Plastic Bottles Once Saved The World, it is not the most environmentally friendly option either, but recent studies have shown that a large percentage of bottled water is in some cases no better than your tap water!

Australians spend over $500 million on bottled water every year and last year alone drank 115 Olympic swimming pools worth of bottled water! Why waste money on buying water all the time when you could have a flowing stream of unlimited purified water right from your kitchen and simply fill your drink bottlebefore leaving home. If you would like more information on safe drink bottles, then check out one of our recent blogs What is a Safe Water Bottle. Also, check out our Pure Water Systems BPA free Stainless Steel Sports Drink Bottles that we have available for purchase.


When Australia was first introduced to bottled water in the late 1980s, everyone all thought it was a joke. Would we really be so silly as to buy bottled water? Well, the joke is on us! In a celebration of marketing over reason we are being conned by the advertising of big corporations and our pocket is feeling it more than ever!
Why waste time and money lugging bottles of water back and forth from the grocery stores? Purified water saves money, environmentally friendly and is a healthy alternative. As discussed in Part 1 of this mini blog series just by filling up your drink bottle you are saving yourself $2-$4 every time, which means more money stays in your wallet!
