Most of our body is water, and its reserves should be replenished regularly. It is believed that the normal functioning of the body can be ensured by drinking one and a half liters of fluid daily. However, the most important question here is what kind of water to drink.
Of course, in most cases we are talking about standard tap water, that is, the one that flows from the tap. However, it is often undrinkable, so it must be further processed. Many people boil water to get rid of the bacteria it contains. However, boiling can hardly be called a harmless operation — as a result of it, the chlorine contained in the liquid can form compounds that are hazardous to health. In addition, the boiled water in the room can act as a “sponge”, literally absorbing all the bacteria from the air. So if you decide to use boiled water, you should do it immediately after boiling.
Today, all kinds of cleaning systems, the so-called filters, are very popular. In most cases, the filter medium here is activated carbon. The advantages of filters are cheapness and high-quality work. However, one should also take into account such an aspect as the life of the cartridge, since its timely replacement is important.
You can also buy commercially filtered water at the store. As a rule, it is sold in large volume containers. But there is one caveat here — there are no harmful impurities, but there are also no minerals useful for humans. Keep in mind that artificially mineralized water is constantly drunk is possible only if the salt content in it does not exceed 1 gram/liter. A higher salt content indicates the therapeutic purpose of the liquid.
There is another alternative to table mineral water — artesian water, which is good for health. If you still want to use water from the plumbing system, then it is advisable to clean it with filters. You can also purchase a special mineralizer.
At home, you can use melted water. It should be prepared from pre-purified water through a filter or purchased liquid. Such water strengthens the immune system and slows down the aging process in body due to the fact that it contains a complete natural mineral complex.
