Water: It makes up almost 75 percent of your body and is absolutely necessary for life.
You probably know you should drink 8 to 10 glasses of this life-giving liquid per day, but have you given serious thought to the quality of your water?
Our water guide will tell you everything you need to know about water and which kinds are best for optimal health.
If you're not getting enough minerals from your water and your diet, then you need a mineral supplement. Our Ancient Earth Minerals Liquid provides a highly concentrated source of amino acids and humic, fulvic, micro, and macro minerals. It's also easy to add to water.
In the United States, we have many different options for our drinking water, but they are not all healthy:
All of the above waters lack essential minerals that are necessary for good health.
Mineral deficiency can lead to insulin resistance, migraines, high blood pressure, constipation and even heart beat irregularities!
Bottled waters deserve some special attention because they are not always as pure as you might expect them to be.
Here are some reasons not to choose bottled water:
If you do you use bottled water, make sure you use reusable glass or plastic containers, and try not to consume ultra purified municipal waters in favor of naturally clean sources.
The best water to drink is naturally clean, pure, and full of naturally occurring minerals:
All of the types of water mentioned above have essential minerals and nutrients like magnesium, potassium, and sodium. Minerals are important for nearly every function in your body, especially your adrenals.
Mineral-rich water can be one source of these nutrients, but if you can't get these waters because of cost or your location, then home filters are an option.
Look for these types of filtration when you purchase filters or bottled water:
Remember that any filter is better than no filter, so even standard "pour through" filters like those from Brita help clean up your water, can remove chlorine and improve the taste, but they also remove minerals.
If you are not getting enough minerals from water and your diet, then try a mineral supplement like Body Ecology's Ancient Earth Minerals Liquid. This amazing formula is a concentrated, alkalizing nutritional supplement that can detox your body from harmful pollutants and give you the minerals you need to thrive. Even better, our Ancient Earth Minerals Liquid is easy to add to water and sip on throughout the day.
Water is one of the most important parts of a healthy lifestyle, so make sure that you are choosing the best possible water, avoiding dangerous plastics, and getting enough vital minerals.
With 8 to 10 glasses a day of pure water, you'll have energy and vitality like never before.
Is bottled water dangerous, and are you really drinking the best water for your health? The unfortunate truth is that tap water in the U.S. is treated, processed, and disinfected municipal water; distilled water that has been vaporized and collected may be entirely devoid of minerals; reverse osmosis water that is forced through membranes to remove pollutants may be acidic; deionized water is free from ionized impurities but may still contain bacteria and pathogens.
All of these common types of water are completely lacking in the essential minerals that your body needs to maintain good health. Even worse, popular bottled water brands are not the health superstars they have been made out to be. Not only can harmful toxins from plastic water bottles leach into the water that you are drinking, but many major bottled water brands contain purified municipal water, aka cleaned-up city water, that is still lacking in critical minerals.
So, what should you be drinking? We highly recommend naturally clean, pure, and mineral-rich water to nourish the body and support your health. Examples include well water, bottled natural spring water, bottled artesian or spring waters, and mineral water. These types of water may contain valuable nutrients and essential minerals, like magnesium, sodium, and potassium, required to support almost every function in the body and especially the adrenals. You can also use Absolute 1 Micron Filtration or Ozonation filters at home to maintain mineral integrity in your water supply.
Drinking the wrong kind of water may do more harm than good, but we think you’ll notice a big difference in your energy and vitality when you are drinking 8 to 10 glasses a day of the pure, mineral-rich water your body needs. Adding one dropperful (1mL) of Body Ecology's Ancient Earth Minerals Liquid to pure water each day can provide balance and help to offset commonplace mineral deficiency.
