Your body is 70% water! You must replenish the water lost from your body every day by drinking more water. The habit of drinking plenty of water will help you maintain a healthier body, your skin will glow, your energy will increase and your thirst will disappear.
What kind of water you drink matters. Unfortunately, the healthiest water does not come in convenient plastic bottles:
“The best way to keep water truly fresh and pure is to store it in a glass container. All plastic bottles leach plastic byproducts like BPA and phthalate into the water, affecting both taste and purity. The longer water sits in a plastic container, the more contaminated the water will become.” (source)
Who wants contaminated water? Certainly not you! And, certainly not your children!
Aquasana published a great article called, “How water quality affects your children’s health.” It states that, “Although poor quality water isn’t good for anyone, it’s particularly harmful for young children. Because of their smaller size, the way their immature bodies work and the way many contaminants build up and persist in their bodily tissues, your children are more vulnerable to the ill effects of contaminated water than adults.
Children younger than five make up just 10 percent of the world’s population, but they comprise 40 percent of those suffering from physical illnesses associated with water contamination worldwide: diarrhea, dehydration, asthma, allergies, and lead poisoning. Water that seems fine to you can make your child really sick.”
My son drinks a TON of water. It’s so good for him and I’m happy to see him develop this healthy habit. However, he is sucking down the water from plastic bottles.
It’s time for a change.
I was recently sent a very affordable Aquasana Countertop Water Filter and glass water bottle to help me create safer drinking water for my family. The filter reduces microscopic particles and removes greater than 97% of chlorine and chloramines from tap water. It connects to the kitchen faucet and is super easy to install. Use it to fill glass drinking bottles and store for future consumption. The water is fresh, crisp and best of all, safe to drink!
With back-to-school in full gear, send your kids to school with a new Aquasana glass water bottle. They are heavy duty and you can purchase silicone sleeves to go over the bottles. They provide a nonslip grip for the bottle and are available in 6 colors.
