Health Benefits of Water

Water is a Suppressant

Why it’s important to drink "Fresh Purified Crystal Clear Water"

Incredible as it may seem, water is quite possibly the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off. A 12 week study managed by Dr Brenda Davy who is a dietician and associate professor at the Virginia Tech with a PhD in Nutrition confirms that drinking 1 litre of water before each main meals increased weight loss. Dr Brenda Davy’s calorie controlled study prescribed 1,200 calories for women and 1,500 for men and established water consumption as the only variable. Half the group were given no water instructions in their diets and the other half prescribed one litre of water before all 3 meals.

After a 12 weeks the group prescribed water had lost an average of 7 kilograms and the group who were not averaged 5 kilograms.

Those who continued drinking water after they had successfully reached normal eating patterns continued to lose a further one kilogram.

The 12 Day Study

About Dr. Brenda Davy

Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolise stored fat.

Constantly hydrating is important for many reasons. Putting water into the body assists with removing toxins and you will feel and look better by flushing unwanted toxins from the body.

On average eight 8 glasses or 2 litres of water per person should be consumed daily and drinking a reasonable quantity is important with fluid retention. When the body doesn’t receive its required quantity of water to function correctly it senses this as a threat to survival and begins to hold on to every drop which means that toxins are also held with your body and not flushed out. An overweight person needs one additional glass for every 4 kilos of excess weight.

So when the body get the water it needs, then the fluids are balanced and this means the body's;

  • Endocrine-glands which include which include the Adrenal, Hypothalamus, Islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, Ovaries, Parathyroid, Pineal, Pituitary, Testes, Thyroid function improves.
  • Fluid retention is alleviated as stored water is lost and toxins are rid of.
  • Fat is used as fuel because the liver is free to metabolise stored fat.
  • Natural thirst returns.
  • loss of hunger occurs almost overnight.

Contaminants

The tap water supply which we rely so heavily on may still contain contaminants such as chlorine, metals, pesticides and other residues.

Australian tap water can often make epic journeys from the catchment areas along delivery lines before they reach your local water supply. It is at this time that the water collects contaminants such as fertilisers, pesticides, livestock waste from agricultural industries. Combine this with chemical, heavy metals from mining and other industries. The comfort with this is knowing that before it is delivered to your tap, the tap water has been purified but is this enough?

Generally yes as there are strict guidelines laid down by the National Health and Medical Research Council to which Australian water producers must adhere to. This includes 70 different contaminates which may exist in unfiltered or untreated water including Cryptosporidium, bacteria and some pesticides where accepted levels are set and in some cases theses are set at zero so it is quite tough but depending on where your water is actually coming from determines what chemicals may be found within your water supply. As previously mentioned, 70 chemicals are currently monitored and over the short time rather than for the longer standing effect of a chemical combination of over 300 chemicals that are actually found in food and water.

Although the best water regulators monitor safety according to health information that is available this means that in relation to micro-organisms, the information is impartial. What this means is that the water is ‘clean’ meaning that it is 'germ-free'. But what about other toxins? What else has the water been tested for?

Chlorination of water is as one of the most important advances in modern civilisation effectively removing deadly diseases, such as dysentery, typhoid and cholera and has saved lives, but new evidence suggests that not without ramifications.

The introduction to molecular chlorine was not until the early 20th century, when chlorine gas was liberated and bound to organic molecules and today there are about 15,000 chlorine-based chemicals in common use which are all toxic including the elemental chlorine used to disinfect water.

Filtered Fresh Water Coolers are a carbon based block filter system. A carbon filter removes 99% of chlorine, chlorinated hydrocarbons and Chloramine, another commonly used disinfectant for water providers. Chloramine is the combination of chlorine and ammonia called which after testing in the US was found to be highly toxic and could be the most toxic disinfection by-product ever tested.

Bottled Water Isn’t Healthy

An interesting article produced in the US by the Natural Resources Defence Council recently and when the question was presented “Isn't bottled water safer than tap water?” there response was not favourable. After a 4 year review of the bottled water industry and the safety standards that protect bottled water rules and tap water rules and an independent testing of 1000 bottles was carried out the following conclusion was reached.

That there is no assurance that just because water comes out of a bottle it is any cleaner or safer than water from the tap. They went on to say that they concluded that 25 percent or more of bottled water is really just tap water in a bottle -- sometimes further treated, sometimes not. But are you prepared to take that chance.
