5 Reasons to Drink More Water

5 exciting things you didn’t already know about water.

By 

We all know we should drink water, yet many of us don’t drink nearly enough (and much of the world is still without clean sources of it). Water is just…water. It’s a relatively neutral taste, perhaps not as exciting or enjoyable as, say, a pumpkin spice latte or margarita.

5 Reasons to Drink More Water

Well, I’m here to tell you that it can be exciting. Because the results areĀ exciting. It is literally the source of life. More than half of our bodies are composed of the stuff, and if that’s not enough to get you chugging it, maybe one of these will tickle your fancy:

  1. Hi –

    I’ve been around the block with tap water, trying to clean it up using filters, etc. and I finally decided that there are just too many variables and too many contaminants in tap water with which to deal. A water expert at a local business here in Clearwater, Florida pointed out that, on any given day, Clearwater can receive its water supply from 30 different sources. And, to that water, they will add one or several of 300 different chemicals to make the water “right” – nullify contaminants, improve taste, etc.

    And, in addition to these various chemicals, manually-added fluoride & chloramine and polluted groundwater, there is the issue of several miles of pipes that run from the water tank in your town to your home. They are probably 20 years old and WHO KNOWS WHAT is growing inside them and WHO KNOWS WHAT is leeching into the water from them!

    And, every few months there is a news article stating that a HORRIBLE, NEW CHEMICAL has been found in the tap water!

    I decided that tap water is the wrong way to start.

    Here’s what I do: I have a Royal Berkey gravity filter but I use my Berkey in a special way. I have an AWG (atmospheric water generator – The Traveller from DroughtMasters) that removes 6 to 10 gallons of water per day from the air here in Clearwater, Florida. I then pour that water through my Royal Berkey, which contains 4 Black Berkey carbon-block filters. The AWG unit contains a UV light that kills bacteria, etc.

    I am a dealer for both of these products, The Traveller and Berkey Filters. If anybody is interested, or has any questions about this, please email me at admin@sweetpuppy.com .

    A few years back, I would have never imagined myself saying that but water truly is one of my favourite drinks! The first thing I have in the morning is water with lemon, and throughout the day, I continue drinking it. When I know I won’t be home for hours, I also leave home with a bottle of water. Hydration is SO important and much more necessary than food! šŸ™‚

  3. There are so many healthy benefits from drinking water. What I learned recently from having bottled water with me all the time is that you get used to the taste and learn to love drinking water. When you have a lot of sugary drinks or anything other than water, it gives water a bad taste. once you wash those out, water is great and you feel better drinking it every day.

  4. I totally agree with the point that drinking adequate water helps in getting a ‘Glowing Skin’. All other points are true as well, but I’ve personally noticed how beautiful the skin becomes just by drinking lots of water.
    Yes its true that you need to ‘Answer Nature’s Call’ more often [:p], but thats a good thing too.!!
