A healthy organism
is in a state of natural equilibrium. This means that the organism
absorbs the nutrients it needs. The organism completely metabolizes and
excretes nutrients and no degradation products are being deposited in
the tissue. This process requires a balanced diet, adequate exercise
and sufficient fluid consumption.
Health out of the tap
water is unrivalled low priced and available at any time. However the
long way from the water works to the consumer reduces its quality.
Water filters can provide pure and healthy drinking water directly out
of the tap.
Water is our most precious natural
resource. Drinking a lot of water keeps you in a good shape and the
circulation going, improves the blood circulation, detoxicates and
purifies the organism. The fluid in our body supports the metabolism,
transports nutrients and regulates the body temperature. We loose
approximately two litres of this vital fluid every day. We must replace
this amount constantly, preferably with pure water that is of high
quality, with a low price and is free of calories. Therefore it has
aspects that other beverages do not provide.
From the spring into the home
sure, the purest water is available in the mountains where it comes up
out of the ground. But not everybody lives in a place with such a
supply of spring water. However you do not have to haul boxes of
expensive mineral water to your home.
We have the privilege - unlike
the people in many other countries of the world - that we can draw our
drinking water directly from the water tap without any effort. This
also has an ecological advantage thus a bottle of mineral water often
travels hundreds of kilometres across Europe before getting into the
shelf of the local supermarket. Admittedly, the high engineered
conditioning in the water works and the inevitable stagnation in
containers and the pipe system reduce the natural taste of the drinking
water considerably. After some years water pipes can get a quite
unappetising look because of various disposals. Who once has seen such
a pipe will not want to draw drinking water from it again.
there are regulations concerning the admissible amount of contaminants
in the drinking water but not everything that has been approved of is
also healthy. That is why the following should apply for our most
precious natural resource: the less unnatural substances the better.
Savoury water thanks to filters
That is where activated-carbon block filters apply: They protect
without using chemical substances and retain contaminants such as heavy
metals, pesticides or residues of medicaments through the cohesion of
baked activated carbon without filtering out vital minerals. The result
is hygienically pure drinking water comparable with still mineral
water. Water of this high quality provides excellent taste for tea or
need for sufficient fluid consumption is beyond dispute. Water is
irreplaceable and its quality is of greatest importance for our health.
Numerous scientific studies lead to the presumption that water
deficiency is the cause for a lot of physical ailments and that it
rapidly accelerates the ageing process.
lot of water keeps you in a good shape and the circulation going,
improves the blood circulation, detoxicates and purifies the organism.
Water stimulates the metabolism and helps against acidity. Therefore,
many nutritionists and alternative practitioners recommend filters for
drinking water. Depending on age and weight your body
needs 2 litres of fluid per day preferably in form of water. People
who prefer mineral water have much to carry.
By filtering water from the tap, you get fresh and tasty water that is comparable with excellent still mineral water.
tap water is conditioned in the water works. But the water that gets to
our tap does not always have the same quality after being pumped
through long pipe networks and maybe through old pipes in our houses.
Transportation and stagnation in the pipes lead to ageing of the
conditioned water. A filtration at the tapping can reverse this process
and guarantees you water of best possible quality.
Calorie-free out of the pipe
idea is tantalising: If you drink a lot of water during your diet, you
loose weight more rapidly. German scientists now have found out that
this can absolutely be taken seriously.
a human being consists of water. In the body it is distributed for
example over the blood and the lymph fluid. Interesting is the fact
that the brain also contains a lot of water - our distributing centre
is downright floating. The central organ for the water balance is the
kidney. It filters about 1,700 litres of blood per day and permanently
disposes of decomposition products evolving from metabolism through the
Power for the metabolism
For people who are about to start tackling the body fat the following
information should be of interest: Researchers of the Charité in Berlin
and the "Institut für Ernährungsforschung Potsdam-Rehbrücke" (German
Institute of Human Nutrition) have found out that the consumption of
tap water can be supportive for diets. They studied on overweight test
persons the effect of drinking tap water on the metabolism. The
researchers established that the consumption of 1.5 to 2 litres of
water a day could elevate the energy exchange of 100 kilocalories.
Projected on a year, this would be 36,500 kilocalories. This
corresponds to 4 to 5 kilograms of adipose tissue.
you already have tested the effect of drinking a glass of water before
a meal. The calorie-free drink fills the stomach and tricks the body
with the feeling that there is not too much space in the stomach. Of
course this is not just good advice for loosing weight but also for
wants to reduce weight successfully naturally wants to loose the
unloved fat pads. However fat is not only the stock for hard times but
also for a set of fat-soluble substances like for example toxic
elements that mostly appear in food only in tiny amounts and
accumulate over months and years in the adipose tissue. If the diet
is successful and the fat pads can be reduced those toxic elements
reach the blood circulation and have to be disposed. In its function as
refuse disposal service the kidney is thankful for being supported with
a lot of fluid. By this way it can filter alien substances much better
out of the blood. Therefore doctors again and again advise to drink
regularly calorie-free beverages in the process of loosing weight.
The more the merrier
balancing the fluid loss, doctors advice to drink at least 1.5 litres
of water daily. Of course it may and has to be more during the summer
when tropical temperatures make you break out in sweat. The same
applies for athletes and people going to the sauna. If the water
balance is not levelled, the ability to concentrate quickly decreases
and the efficiency reduces. A lot of pure water from within also helps
to provide dry skin with fluid. If you want to be really certain that
the blue element out of the tap is as pure as possible then you can
revert to water filtration. Cola or lemonades are rather inapt to
satisfy one's thirst lastingly and also stresses the metabolism.
Getting exercise is healthy
Regular physical activity peps up the metabolism and trains the
cardiovascular system. Whether hiking, running, cycling or more modern
alternatives like inline skating, walking or mountain biking: the
number of sports is growing continuously. Attention should always be
paid to a sufficient fluid consumption.
is obvious: We sweat during every sportive activity and with the sweat
we loose important minerals. Especially the "sport minerals" calcium
and magnesium are very important. Concerning the amount that should be
drunk it can be taken as an approximate guideline to drink at least as
much as has been excreted. One and a half times more would be better.
Of course additionally to the daily need.
drinking means to drink notably more to balance the fluid loss. And
also not to drink all at once but distributed well before, during and
Serious fluid loss
somebody is on the move he is getting warm. The body emits this heat by
sweat. Someone who does exercises is sweating. And this is very
important. During a persistent training the body must sweat permanently
to avoid overheating.
However the human body looses
water by sweating. The more intensive the sport is, the higher is the
loss of water. Normal athletes loose approximately between 1 and 1.5
litres of water. If the temperature or the air humidity is high it
could be up to 2 litres. Competitive athletes lose much more e.g.
marathon runners for example lose between 4 and 5 litres. And they have
only two hours to make up this great loss of fluid. This is almost
impossible. Also normal athletes can not manage to make up this loss
during their activity.
Have a drink before you get thirsty
this reason it is better to drink before exercising, preferably a
quarter up to half a litre. And during sport small amounts of water
should be drunk every ten or fifteen minutes. It is also very important
to drink after sport in order to balance the body fluid.
drinking in advance is the motto. If you get thirsty it is often too
late. The body has already reacted. The blood becomes thicker and
circulates slower, the muscles receive less oxygen and a loss of power
is the obvious consequence. At this point drinking is not very helpful
then the effects will remain.
What to drink?
useful is to drink exactly the same what the body has lost. Water, this
can assimilate the body immediately. Inside the body the assimilation
of water takes place within the small intestine. Therefore the drink
has to pass the stomach first before being assimilated. Drinks that
leave the stomach quickly are best. And this fact applies mainly to
