Unfortunately your body is under constant daily assault by toxic substances, a great many of which are hard or impossible to completely avoid.
Your blood, your kidneys, and your liver all require good clean water to detoxify your body from all the pollutants you come into contact with every day. They requires a constant daily supply to fuel all the various waste filtration systems nature has designed to keep your body healthy and free of toxins.
When you give your body water that is filled with toxins leached from plastic, or filled with by-products from chlorination, or with volatile organic compounds, or water that is contaminated by pesticides or hormones, you are asking your body to work twice as hard at detoxification, because it must first detoxify the water you are drinking, before that water can be used to fuel your organs of detoxification!
Drinking polluted water makes your body work twice as hard every day!
Clearly, the most efficient way to help your body both avoid and eliminate toxins is to provide your body with the cleanest, purest water you can find.
Toxins in your water don't just attack your body internally.
If you could only afford one filter there is no question in most experts minds that the shower filter is the most important product to buy for water filtration, even more important than filtering your tap water. This is because the damage you incur through your skin and lungs far surpasses the damage done by drinking water (which at least gives your body a fighting chance to eliminate the toxins through your organs of elimination).
An even better solution to the problem of harsh chemicals and toxins in your home's water supply is to install a whole house water filtration system. This not only protects your body, but also your appliances as well. There's just one water line coming into your house. Putting a filter on this is the easiest and simplest strategy you can implement to take control of your health by ensuring the water and the air in your house is as clean as possible.
Just remember, if you are getting your water from a municipal source your indoor air quality, especially in the winter when your windows are closed, is likely atrocious. This is related to the chlorine and other toxins evaporating from all your toilet bowls, showers, baths, dishwashers and washing machines.
One of the easiest ways to improve your health is to control the water coming into your house.
Make sure the water you are drinking, bathing in and breathing in your indoor air is clean! You can do this with a whole house water filter, a shower filter and a tap water filter, or a combination of these that makes the most sense for your residence and your budget.
