Health Benefits Of Water Filtration
Water is at the center of all of our lives and can affect our overall health and well-being. Unfortunately in the last few years, cryptosporidium parasites have been found in the Bull Run Watershed, one of the Portland area’s main sources of water. Portland is also one of the very few cities that does not filter their water. The Oregon Health Authority has now obliged the Portland Water Bureau to build a treatment plant, which will be up and running by 2027. However, 2027 is still a few years in the future and the need for filtered, clean, high-quality water is NOW.
Water filtration is vital for the health of our community which is why our Wolfer’s team is dedicated to providing you with water filtration that is SECOND TO NONE! Continue reading to see how improving your water will provide you with countless health benefits.
Softer and Smoother Skin
Say goodbye to dry, flaky skin! It’s common knowledge that water improves the overall appearance of our skin by hydrating it. With fewer additives and chemicals in your water supply, your body will be able to easily process your water and keep your body hydrated. Filtered water is also better to bathe in because it softens your water and leaves your skin with more moisture and less leftover residue. Filtering your water can also potentially increase your daily intake of water which will aid in the hydration of your skin.
Weight Loss & Nutrient Absorption
Did you know filtered water can help with nutrient absorption and weight loss? Filtered water can double the rate at which water molecules and nutrients are absorbed by your cells. This dramatically improves your metabolism and overall health. Filtered water not only improves your metabolism but can actually speed it up. By speeding up our metabolism, filtered water helps us lose weight. A fast and well-functioning metabolism is not only good for maintaining the proper functioning of our bodies but also for better digestion.
Showering and bathing in filtered water will also benefit your hair! Those who have naturally blonde hair or get their hair colored understand how important it is to preserve the expensive salon color. Hard water strips your hair of natural oils & added color, and chlorinated water can even turn blonde hair hues of green. With your natural oils preserved, chlorine, and other impurities removed, your hair will feel and look smoother.
Peace Of Mind
A water filtration system will leave you with the peace of mind that your water is truly clean. Not only will your water be chlorine-free but will also rid your water of other impurities like metals, minerals, and other base bacteria, like microorganisms that can make you and your family sick.
