Water is the “source of life.” Our world is 75% water (from what I remember from grade school) and our bodies are around 50% water as well! It’s no wonder we act differently on full moons; it’s “high tide” in our bodies!
I’m already assuming you already know the importance of drinking plenty of water every day (don’t wait until you’re thirsty and choose water over sodas or juice). A rule of thumb is to drink enough water to turn your urine light yellow.
Regarding the source of water: I’ve done a little bit of research about the best types of water to drink.
1. Tap water: definitely “no.” The amount of chemicals and toxins in tap water are stupefying. Including:
2. Bottled water: depends. In general, I would say “no,” but when traveling and in a pinch, it will do the trick. Choose glass over plastic as plastic does contain contaminants that mimic estrogen and can lead to hormone imbalances including cancer. Be cautious using aluminum containers for water as evidence is showing they contain trace amounts of PBAs just as plastic does!
Brands I do NOT recommend: Fiji, Whole Foods Italian Still Mineral Water,Vintage Natural Spring Water, Sahara Premium Drinking Water, O Water Sport Electrolyte Enhanced Purified Drinking Water, Market Basket Natural Spring Water, and Cumby’s Spring Water (these were tested as having contaminants).
Brands that were tested as “safe” according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG): Nestlé’s Pure Life Purified Water, Gerber Pure Purified Water, Penta Ultra-Purified Water. These brands, regardless of whether or not it started as tap water, is purified with no contaminants.
