Our bodies are composed of more than 70% water, so the water we drink, shower and cook with can have a significant impact on our overall health. This is why simply adding a water filter to your home can make a big difference!
You may recall that I recently had the opportunity to try Aquasana’s Countertop water filter, which is a great solution for those of us in rentals or for those not ready to commit to a pricier under-the-counter unit.
Aquasana’s drinking water filters are NSF certified to remove over 97% of chlorine, over 99% of lead, herbicides, pesticides, cysts, asbestos, volatile organic chemicals in addition to chloramines, pharmaceuticals and over 50 additional water contaminants. While their filter technology provides maximum reduction in water contaminates, it also leaves behind the beneficial minerals found in water such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Here are a few more facts on the contaminants found in our nation’s tap water, provided by the EWG:
Not only will a water filter reduce these contaminants, it will also improve the taste of your water! (Especially if you live in a place like Los Angeles, where the tap water tastes terrible.)
