– What you drink is extremely important. The water you use has a huge impact on your health, and on the quality of the foods you eat.
– Water plays a role in
– transporting food to different parts of your body
– assimilating food
– eliminating waste (through sweat and urine)
– conducting bio-electric energy
– building cells
– catalyzing biochemical processes and hydrolysis
– regulating body temperature
– Water contained in organically grown fruits and vegetables is much superior to the water content of non-organic produce.
– Water from natural sources contains minerals, but is not as pure as distilled water (except for rainwater and melted snow).
– Drinking water should be clear and odourless, taste pleasant and fresh.
– Drinking water should not contain too many minerals, and few nitrites or nitrates. It should also be free of bacteria, larvae, infectious microbes, etc.
– Water that contains a lot of minerals should be used for medicinal purposes, and not on a regular basis.
