Water filters, types of water supply, and the harms of untreated  water


In this post, we want to discuss with you water filters, types of water supply, and the harms of untreated water. We made this post based on Dr. Mercola’s video about this topic.

We have three different options for good quality water:

  • Mountain springs, you can find one here.

Mountain Spring water is living water, It comes from the earth, just the way nature intended, meaning it is the best water on the planet for the human body.  Drinking natural spring water daily can bring some benefits like maintaining healthy body weight, improved circulation, decrease muscle and joint pain, better food digestion, and healthy glowing skin, it also  helps the body to maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keep the bones strong, support a healthy immune system, and to keep the heart rhythm steady.

The body requires 220 and 410 milligrams of magnesium daily and the spring water can help with that.

  • Well Water

Well water is  untreated groundwater, It isn’t hard to find drinkable groundwater. But, since groundwater is essentially rain that has moved through the soil and into an aquifer, it can absorb a lot of other things along the way.

There’s much more in your well water than H2O, that’s why you will need a  water filter system. Before buying your water filtration system, you need to do a test to find out what contaminant is present in your water, after that you are free to choose.

  • Municipal Water Treatment – Tap Water

The third type of water supply it’s the most used, 90% of the North American population use this type of water with no other filter added.  Tap water with no other kind of filter has lots of contaminants like fluoride or drugs that are prescribed for you. You must be wondering how is this possible, well, tap water lots of times comes from the filtrated sewer, and the municipal filtration can’t remove all the contaminants.

Tap water can contain fluorine, pipes can add lead and other stuff, chlorine is added to remove some microorganisms but it ends up killing your beneficial bacteria when mixed with organic compounds it creates disinfection by-products (DBP). DPB is made off trihalomethanes or endorses attic acids, they can increase cancer and other diseases.

Any filter it’s better than NO Filter. Because with no filter you become the filtration system.

If you don’t want to acquire a water filter there is another option:

Bottled Water, but there is not a good a long term option and here is why:
-First, it’s nod good at all for the environment, by buying bottled water you will increase the use of fuel for transportation and you will increase the use of plastic.
-Plastic has BPA that are toxic components.
– The municipal water supply is regulated by the EPA, that has very strict rules about contamination, bottled water is regulated by the FDA, and they are not so exigent, so the bottled water can be easily duped.

Unfortunately, not all of us live close to a mountain stream where we can fill up our water bottles and drink some of the best water on the planet for free – the way nature designed it. Most of us live in large urban areas and need to rely on commercial water distribution systems that are often loaded with chlorine, disinfection byproducts, fluoride, and many other toxins. Assuming you’ve thought about it and got the result that the best is to buy a water filter to be sure of the absence of contaminants, here are Doctor Mercola’s favorites.
