If you have heard of water purification in the past, it is likely that you have also heard that water purification can be responsible for removing healthy minerals. We know that our body needs a variety of minerals in order to get a balanced diet and to enjoy ideal health. One of the most common myths surrounding the water purification industry is that a filter is going to remove some of the most important minerals from the water supply throughout purification. This is simply false.
Filtering water with a purification system does not remove the benefits of water, you’ll still receive hydration but without all of the excess contaminants that can typically be found in a water supply. The two minerals that are commonly mentioned as part of a water supply that are removed are calcium and magnesium.
These minerals are extremely harmful to home plumbing systems. If you’re continuing to eat a healthy and balanced diet, you’ll be receiving the total amount of minerals that you will need in a day without even having to consider your water supply.
Mineralized water is not something that needs to be included in your diet for proper health. When water is properly purified and controlled, only the good minerals are left in your drinking water and all of the contaminants will be removed. Water filtration systems can be adjusted based off of your requirements and based off of your water supply. Water can also be remineralized through a water filtration system but performing this task is often counterintuitive as you’ll receive the same benefits from your food.
The idea that water purification will remove healthy minerals from your water is simply a false rumor. If you would be interested in enjoying healthier water today, contact us!
