—How To Improve Your Health With Water—
Drinking clean water is critical to your overall health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, few realize the importance of filtering their water. Water supplies vary around the country, but almost also city and municipal water supplies undergo some form of treatment. This treatment process includes filtering, but eventually potentially harmful chemicals like chlorine and fluoride are added to the water. High-priced modern filters can remove these chemicals, but unfortunately then water is left clean but needs invigoration to help bring it back to it’s natural state. If you have access to spring water from clean sources than I would highly advise drinking that. Spring water contains natural minerals and oxygen that is lost during the filtration process. Unfortunately, most people who live in urban environments are unable to access clean spring water and must drink from municipal sources. Use these 5 techniques to improve your drinking water.
1.Buy a High Quality Reverse Osmosis Water Filter
In my opinion, buying a high-quality water filter is the best investment in your health you can make. Even if your lucky enough to live in a municipality that doesn’t add fluoride, you still have to deal with chlorine and potentially other chemicals in your water supply. Filtering your water with cheap store bought filters will remove some chemicals like fluoride, but will not remove chemicals with a smaller particle size like fluoride, otherwise know as hydrofluoric acid. When picking a water filter make sure it can remove fluoride, if so you can rest assured that it will be able remove most of the chemicals in your water.
2. Add Fresh Squeezed Lemon
One of my favorite ways invigorate water is through the use of lemons. Lemons are a great way to get your much needed dose of vitamin C as well as improve the taste of your water. I prefer to squeeze a 1/4 chunk of lemon into by 40oz water canteen two times daily. Lemon also has detoxing and other properties that can help clean out the body. Ancient cultures for thousands of years have recognized the benefits of adding lemon juice to water and have done so for centuries.
3. Add Cayenne Pepper to Warm Water
I believe it’s critical to your success in life to set up a morning routine. This basically means that you do the same thing every morning when you wake up, especially on Monday through Friday. I have practiced the same morning routine for years and I believe I can attribute it to a large part of my success. Unlike most people, I avoid drinking coffee first thing because I don’t want to become dependent on caffeine to wake up in the morning. Instead, I warm up a glass of warm water over the stove. Next, I squeeze 1/4 piece of lemon and approximately 1 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper. This incredible mixture has a multitude of health benefits and tastes amazing.
4. Add Fresh Organic Cucumbers
Adding fresh organic cucumbers to your water is a great way to change it up. Cucumbers are a water heavy healthy choice that adds a great natural flavor. My favorite thing to drink in the summer is cucumber water because it does wonders to quench my thirst. First, I fill a pitcher 1/2 full of ice. Next, I add in a fully chopped cucumber into the pitcher. Finally I fill it will clean or purified water and let it site for about 20 minutes. Now, sit back and enjoy a tasty thirst quenching beverage.
5. Add Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0
One of my favorite things to add to my water is Beyond Tangy Tangerine 2.0. I love adding this delicious vitamin and mineral mix because it gives water a tangy taste while also providing me with my daily dose of vitamin and minerals. You can add other vitamin and mineral powders to your drink and get the same results, but for me personally this one tastes the best.
That is my list of the top 5 ways to improve your health with water. If you want to stay healthy you should be drinking a lot of water, but the problem is after a while it become difficult to drink. That’s when these invigoration techniques come in handy to mix it up and keep your taste buds happy. Thanks for reading my blog!
