    Drinking Your Way to a Healthier You

    Accounting for about 60 percent of our bodies’ composition, water plays a key role in circulation, digestion, and brain function. It’s also responsible for transporting nutrients and maintaining body temperature. At the same time, water offers a host of little-known benefits that can make us look and feel better on a daily basis.

    Noticeable Improvements

    Americans spend countless dollars on supplements and other products that claim to enhance beauty and health. Interestingly, research has shown that they can get noticeable improvements in both areas simply by drinking more water:

    • Younger-looking skin: By naturally plumping skin, water can help fill in wrinkles and fine lines. It can also improve lackluster complexions and reduce bloating.
    • Weight loss: You may have heard you can flush away fat by drinking more water. While this has been proven false, water has been shown to promote weight loss in other ways. According to a study presented at the 2010 American Chemical Society, subjects who consumed two 8-ounce glasses of water before meals ate 75 to 90 fewer calories at each sitting, resulting in much greater weight loss when compared to participants who drank no extra water. By making us feel fuller, water can reduce cravings and cause us to eat less.
    • Improve brain function: A study out of King’s College in London determined that dehydration can impair brain functions related to planning and spatial reasoning.
    • Enhance mood: According to researchers at Tufts University, even slight dehydration can promote feelings of depression, anger, and confusion.
    • Fewer breakouts: Research indicates that people can reduce acne breakouts by consuming more water. Skin care specialists also recommend hot lemon water as a natural remedy to reduce the internal bacteria responsible for breakouts.

    Getting More Water

    Unfortunately, many people choose other beverages over water. By installing an affordable home water filtration system, you can significantly improve the smell and taste of your tap water. You can also save a substantial amount of money by choosing filtered water over bottled water, which has been shown to offer no benefits over filtered tap water.

It’s also easy to install and comes with a 5-year performance guarantee that ensures your complete satisfaction.
