Water, H20, is an elementary and fundamental liquid we humans cannot live without. An interesting thing about water is the many health benefits. Water is related to reducing weight, fat, and sugar concentration in your blood. Water is often associated with better skin health and better feeling. Water is proven to be one of the most effective body cleansers, meaning it efficiently reduces the number of toxins in your body and is great for the liver and kidneys. However, most tap water supplies are heavy with pollutants and little contaminants making the water not safe for everyday use over a longer period of time. Unfortunately, bottled water leaves a big environmental footprint on the surroundings and therefore is not a long-term solution. One way to solve the problem is installing water filtration systems in the house. This can drastically reduce the number of pollutants in the water, clear it from chlorophyll and other chemical compounds within the water, and it can affect the taste of the water. Water filtration systems are an initial investment but essentially they are a long-term solution, as it is safe for the environment and furthermore it also can be applied to the bathroom as well. A little-known fact is, water can worsen certain skin conditions like seborrheic dermatitis and eczema, as it has all these heavy compounds in it. A filtered water system can be applied and reduce the harm the water can do on your skin when showering.
