How Water Affects Your Health

History supports that civilizations with clean water were strong and healthy. For many of us, that is like a “duh” moment. Of course they had clean water. Otherwise, how could they thrive, right?

In fact, cosmetic and anti-aging research supports that consumption of clean, pure water is a primary anti-aging and health promoting thing that we can do for ourselves.

Here’s what consuming 8 glasses of pure water per day can do for you:

* Improves your energy
* Can reduce anxiety, stress, even depression
* Reduces headaches and dizziness by detoxifying your body
* Sharpens your mental and physical performance
* Improves your skin’s appearance and reduces wrinkles
* Helps relieve symptoms of asthma, allergies and arthritis
* When trying to loose weight, consumption of water often alleviates “false hunger signals”.

According to a six year study published in the May 1, 2002, American Journal of Epidemiology, women who drank more than five glasses of water a day were 41 percent less likely to die from heart attack than those who drank less than two glasses. The results were even greater for men.

Hydration is mandatory for a human body to maintain normal physiological and psychological functions. But if you’re drinking water full of toxins, you may suffer decreased mental alertness, lower I.Q., cancers and neurological disorders, as well as dental deficiencies. Your body also requires water to break down the fats that are filtered through your liver.

Here are a few of the things that pure water does for your body:

* Allows you to digest your food
* Helps deliver oxygen to your cells
* Is required for joint lubrication
* Water is required to regulate the bodies temperature functions
* Is part of the elimination process to rid yourself of toxins and wastes
* Is required to generates cellular energy
* Carries nutrients within your body and helps the body absorb those nutrients

Obviously, if you don’t drink enough pure water, you will run into health issues. Have you ever noticed, whether on TV shows or in real life, that one of the first things done in many instances, is to insert an IV and provide the patient with sterile fluids?

Water is indeed the gift of life. And although, in this country, local water departments attempt to provide us with clean, pure water, the single thing they can’t overcome is the age and disintegration of those water delivery and processing systems. (as reported by

Which Distiller is Right For Me?

Distilled water provides the cleanest, purest water. For many years, faucet or pour through water filters have provided a false sense of security to consumers. But these filters do not filter out objectionable odors, and do not remove common problems including copper, parasites, bacteria, virus’s, and more. Did you know that these filters can actually breed bacteria in them? And when are you supposed to change those filters?

Steam distillation of water, as produced by reflux stills,  is the best method to get clean, pure water.
Out in nature, water evaporates, condenses, and then falls back to earth is rain or show. Which is great, as long as it falls through unpolluted air!

Distillation follows Mother Natures process, separating the contaminates from the pure, fresh water. A good quality distillation system provides water that is up to 99 percent free of impurities, including heavy metals, most chemicals, and biological contaminates. This is because of the continuous boiler process used in distillation.
