ONE WORD, MANY DIFFERENT LANGUAGES
WE NEED IT…WATER IS LIFE
Water remains the composition of hydrogen and oxygen, in the ratio of two hydrogen to one oxygen molecule. We are all familiar with its short-hand chemical logo of H2O.
It is the essential life source and is key to preventing, healing and helps to filter toxins out the body.
As abundant as rain, we dance in it, play in it and cleanse with it.
Yes, water is everywhere! In the last few decades, Americans’ drinking passions have shifted significantly. Most American’s drink water more than any other beverage. Second only to oxygen, water is a healer. It accounts for 70% of total body weight. Each cell of the body needs water to carry out its functions. The kidneys eliminate a pint of fluid per day to prevent toxin build-up. Water supplies oxygen and nutrients to cells and removes cellular waste through the blood and lymphatic systems.
Water also acts as the body’s air conditioner by expelling internal heat through perspiration.
It may sound unbelievable, but it is true, you might survive for 30 to 45 days without food, without water we would die in 10 days or after a 10% water loss, whichever came first. Amounts in excess of six to eight 16oz. glasses day are needed to fight off colds and other respiratory impairments. Thirst is a signal to your body that you need water. However, in most cases, thirst occurs after your body has already become dehydrated. It is best to keep your body hydrated with water before you become thirsty. Bottled water is the fastest growing beverage in the marketplace. One out of 17 families in the United States purchase bottled water.
Bottled water manufacturers usually remove any harmful organisms by means of ultra-violent light methods or by ozonation (a purification method where Ozone gas (O3) is added to water as a disinfectant to kill dangerous bacteria).
General rule of purchase:
Unlike deep-well water which is pumped up, spring water rises to the surface due to its own pressure. Natural spring water undergoes no processing from the source to the container that we as consumers purchase. When purchasing spring water look for the label to read bottled at the source. When only the words “spring water” are used, the water may have been modified in some way. Keep in mind, the word “spring” is no indication as to purity of content.
Mineral water is water that contains dissolved minerals. Actually, all water other than distilled water fits this definition. The use of the word natural means the minerals were there when the water was removed from the ground. The description “mineral water,” without the word natural means some minerals have been removed or introduced.
Seltzer man-made water, is generally tap water that has been filtered and carbonated. No mineral or sodium salts are added, which distinguishes seltzer from its cousin, club soda.
Sparkling water is man-made water that contains natural or added C02 in the same amount the water had from its source.
Artesian water is water collected from a drilled well into an aquifer (body of saturated rock through which water can easily move). This water is confined by a layer of clay or rock, which pressurizes the water enough to allow it to rise up through the ground without mechanical pumps.
