What kind of water should you be drinking?

Tap Water – People all over the country and the world drink tap water from sinks every day. It is regulated by the EPA and is safe for consumption. Many people recommend and use filtrations systems to improve the taste of tap water from the fluoride and chlorination process it goes through.

Well Water – Most well water is safe to drink, but it is incredibly important to always test well water before drinking it. If there are chemicals or bacteria present, it could get you sick. Well water has some great benefits in the form of minerals and the lack of chemicals present in tap water.

If you are concerned that water may be unsafe to drink and you don’t have the means for testing, boil questionable water before consumption.

Spring Water/Mineral Water – You can get far more calcium and magnesium from drinking bottled mineral water than from drinking tap water from the faucet. Bottled water is regulated by the FDA to meet specific safety standards when it is bottled and sealed: ensuring it is safe to drink.

Purified Water – Purified water goes through a filtration and purification process that removes all contaminants and chemicals from the water before bottling, making it quite safe to drink.

Distilled Water – You can drink distilled water, although it has a different taste than other water sources because it lacks all minerals such as the calcium and magnesium present in both tap water and spring water sources.

Sparkling Water – Drinking sparkling water does not provide the same harmful effects on teeth that most carbonated beverages do, sources report – making it great for people who like a little bubble in their drink. Do be careful with carbonation though as it can have a lasting impact on the kidneys.

Alkaline Water – What makes water alkaline? A high PH level. Studies have been done testing the effects of drinking Alkaline water to combat acid reflux symptoms and research is still very active to determine the true nature Alkaline water has on acid and our bodies.

The truth of the matter is that if you’re drinking water every day, you’re already on the right track. Try to follow the 8×8 rule and set a goal to drink eight 8oz glasses (half a gallon) daily to keep your body hydrated and happy.

Why You Shouldn’t Drinking Water From Your Garden Hose in Las Vegas

 

Getting a cold drink from the garden hose on a hot summer’s day might strike a chord of nostalgia in some people’s minds. It used to be the norm and you may hear people claiming they used to drink from the garden hose and they turned out just fine. However, you shouldn’t drink water from your garden hose anymore. Below, we detail a few reasons why.

Regulations and Awareness

“We used to do it all the time!” Isn’t a good reason to keep doing things. Doctors used to smoke in their exam rooms and people used to drive without seat belts. It’s true that people used to drink from the garden hose all the time however water out of the garden hose was different when they were growing up.

The FDA regulates water to help keep the public healthy and water from the garden hose just doesn’t make the cut anymore.

Cleanliness is an Issue

First of all, there are plenty of critters  and bacteria that can make camp in your garden hose since it lives outside or in a garage or shed all the time. Waterborne bacterial infections can be easily transmitted through the water flow of your hose. Water from the hose may also contain chemicals that may not otherwise be present in tap water or bottled water. Your hose itself is made up of plastics and heavy metals that should never be ingested. Small pieces of debris from the hose are easily dislodged and could end up making you very sick over time. The pipes that carry water to your hoses aren’t necessarily up to code for drinking water and can also carry toxins and other dangerous elements.

Conclusion

It might be convenient on a hot day to take a sip from the hose but think twice before indulging in this nostalgic activity. Contact us today to get Silver Springs water delivered to your home so you have clean, fresh water at your fingertips all summer long!

Drinking Enough Water is Essential

Why Drinking Enough Water is Essential to Your Health

Drinking Sufficient Water Is Important.

Understanding that water constitutes 65% of your overall body weight should be reason enough to keep downing those eight 8oz glasses of water daily. Having enough water on board becomes even more important when you realize that your brain is composed of 70% water, your blood is 80% water and your lungs are 90% water. An adequate amount of daily fluid intake is necessary for body systems to work normally or to even keep working at all.

Ways to Keep Your New Year’s Weight-Loss Resolution 2017

Weight-loss resolution 2017 are made by countless people on New Year’s Day. Some are able to faithfully stick to their plan, while others fall off the diet wagon long before the end of the month. Those who have trouble sticking to new diet and exercise goals often decide to jump ship, and they end up weighing more than they did on January 1st. When one tire goes flat on your vehicle would you purposely flatten all four tires? Of course not. Consider these ways to keep your New Year’s weight-loss resolution, and get back on track. Weight-loss is a slow process, but it does not have to be emotionally or physically painful.
Update Your Resolution with a Realistic Plan

When seeking ways to keep your New Year’s weight-loss resolution, rethink your original plan. When people have trouble reaching a weight-loss goal, more often than not the diet was too strict. Give yourself a little more leeway when it comes to snacks, and do not be too hard on yourself if you backpedal now and then. The word diet indicates a temporary change. Update your New Year’s weight-loss resolution for long-term success. It should be one that you can live with indefinitely, especially if you want long-lasting results.

Opt for Moderation Instead of Deprivation

Strict diets can be adhered to for a while, but they soon get old. Many people give up on their New Year’s weight-loss resolution because they feel deprived. They begin feeling sorry for themselves and go right back to mindlessly eating whatever looks good. Give yourself permission to have small daily treats. Opt for moderation instead of deprivation. A lifestyle change will be much easier when you do not feel denied. As long as you are not restricted because of a medical condition, you can have anything that you want within moderation.

Start Keeping a Calorie and Exercise Journal

Were you keeping track of your caloric intake and physical activities when you began losing confidence in your weight-loss plan? If not, you should be noting every calorie consumed and every physical activity. When considering calories, think of a checking account. Imagine your caloric intake as deposits and expended calories as debits, but unlike a checking account, excess credits are not good. Those that are not burned off will accumulate on the body in the form of fat. Determine how many calories you should consume each day, and start keeping a calorie and exercise journal. You will be able to see how many calories you are actually taking in and how active you really are. The journal will make it easier to make adjustments by increasing accountability. The numbers will not lie unless they are entered incorrectly.

Set Fun and Easy Exercise Goals

Exercise does not have to be painful or monotonous. It does not have to be strenuous to be effective either. When working to keep your New Year’s weight-loss resolution, make it fun. You do not have to join a gym or an exercise class to achieve your goals. Consider buying an interactive game system and games that will encourage you to move. Even if it is too cold to head outdoors, you will burn calories while toning your muscles.
If an exercise game system does not sound ideal, just get up and move for at least 30 minutes each day. Walk briskly in place during television commercials, or dance to your favorite music while completing household chores. Buy an exercise DVD that looks like fun, and get a friend involved while working to keep your New Year’s weight-loss resolution. Any form of movement is better than inactivity. The goal is to burn calories and lose weight, but a fit and toned body is a highly desirable bonus.
