Aquasana Water Filters and parts provide drinking water for the whole house to remove disease and improve health.
Water is life. The human body is made up of more than 70% water. Our blood contains 80% water, our brains are 75% water, and the human liver is 96% water. Water serves the vital purpose of cleansing and detoxifying our bodies. We are exposed to chemicals and toxins constantly because they are rampant in our food, air, and unfortunately, our water. This is why it is so important for us to drink the purest, cleanest water possible. We must drink water that is free of dangerous chlorine, lead, and other toxins so that the water can effectively do its job of purifying our bodies systems. If we drink water that contains these harsh chemicals, it places the burden of detoxification entirely on the liver and kidneys, causing increased damage to two vital organs. Research also indicates that water is crucial to the bodys ability to metabolize nutrients that we eat. Sugars and carbohydrates are absorbed more quickly, which means that even slight dehydration can cause us to get the caloric intake from our foods without the nutritional value. Water does wonders to enhance the bodys energy levels as well. Research shows that just a 5% decrease in fluids can cause a 25% 30% loss of energy. Water is the ingredient of life and it can be reasoned that if water plays such an intimate part in our physical and mental well-being, we should ensure that the water we drink is clean, pure, and offers maximum health support.
Detoxification is one of the most important processes in the human body as it helps to prevent disease. Water is the key factor to proper cleansing and pure water plays a powerful role in helping to lower the risk of degenerative and neurological diseases. The bodys cells function by nervous signals sent through the nervous system. When the fluid in the neural pathways gets thicker due to dehydration or when toxins like lead build up in the pathways, the neural signals can become distorted. Many experts claim that this can be the cause of some degenerative and neurological diseases such as anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Clean water is crucial to the healthy function of the nervous system. It is important to recognize that everything we put down our drains will eventually come out of our faucets and we will put it back into our bodies. The worlds water supply is constantly contaminated by chemicals and solvents such as lawn chemicals, household cleaners, etc. Unfortunately, our water purification plants are not equipped to adequately clean the water that we drink. They function by filtering out the visible particles of contaminants and use chlorine and bleach to clean the rest of the water. Therefore, the water still contains a fair level of toxins as well as cleaning solvents that are unhealthy for the human body.
"Drinking water plants are old and out of date and water supplies are increasingly threatened by and contaminated by chemicals and microorganisms." Natural Resources Defense Council
Much research is confirming the fact that our water is not safe and is causing an incredibly high incidence of disease, especially in the United States. One study completed by the Ralph Nader Study Group reviewed 10,000 documents under the freedom of Information Act and concluded that "U.S. drinking water contains more than 2100 toxic chemicals that can cause cancer." In the early 1900s, prior to the wide-spread use of pesticides, herbicides, household chemical cleaners, etc. the average rate of cancer among Americans was 1 in 50. Today, Americans have a 1 in 3 chance of developing cancer in their lifetime.

Research is showing that many illnesses which could not be linked to anything before are now believed to be rooted in the toxins ingested in our drinking water. One study conducted on 29 U.S. cities evaluated pesticides in tap water. The results were staggering and scary. 27 of the 29 cities produced tap water with at least two or more pesticides in the drinking water, three or more in 24 cities four or more in 21 cities five or more in 18 cities six or more in 13 cities and seven or more pesticides in the tap water of 5 major U.S. cities. Nine different pesticides were found in a single glass of tap water in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Children can be especially impacted by the harmful chemicals flowing in our drinking water. Childrens bodies are not capable of detoxifying themselves of the many dangerous toxins they ingest. Small children also consume a much larger amount of fluids per pound of body weight than adults, and therefore, get a much larger dose of contaminants. Unfortunately, the EPA does not calculate these facts into water safety regulations. The standards for what is considered to be safe drinking water is based on a 175 pound adult and only figures for the ingestion of one chemical, not the combination of two or more toxins, which is common. Based on the study mentioned above, in the 29 cities evaluated, over 45,000 infants were given bottles of formula made with water that contained weed killers and at least 4-9 other harmful chemicals. Healthy drinking water is not being provided by our cities, so it is the responsibility of individual families to ensure they are drinking pure, clean water that supports health rather than degrades it. This is where Aquasana enters the scene.

Aquasana offers affordable replacement filters for each water purification and filtration system. It can be difficult to determine the best water purification system for the price. The key is to evaluate the water quality produced compared to the cost of the system and maintenance. Aquasana makes the choice a little easier because no other water purification system has produced the high quality of water as Aquasana. Aquasana consistently outshines its competitors. And the extra good news is that you can regularly find sales and discounts for Aquasana products, making it even more attainable and affordable to stay healthy with pure water. Aquasana water filtration system was reviewed by third party performance testers and it always filtered out contaminants better than any other water filtration system. Aquasana was tested by even more rigorous standards to ensure its quality above other products. For example, the Aquasana system tested its ability to filter out lead at a 10% higher rate (155-160 ppb) than the standard 150 parts per billion. Aquasana produced lead-free water throughout a 500 gallon test. The performance of Aquasana in filtering out synthetic chemicals was also studied under more challenging circumstances than the standard levels for evaluating water safety. Again, Aquasana out-performed competitor water filtration companies. The value of Aquasanas performance in effectively purifying water should not go unnoticed as it is a crucial factor in our overall health and wellness. No amount of toxins and chemicals should be considered safe to our bodys health. A recent report from the National Cancer Institute to the Surgeon General proclaimed "No level of exposure to a chemical carcinogen should be considered toxicologically insignificant for humans".
There has long been debate over the best way to produce the healthiest quality of water. For many years, companies have marketed water systems that employ distillation or reverse osmosis to purify its water. Reverse osmosis and distillation processes were created 40 years ago for the photo developing and printing industries, which require mineral-free water. The processes were then used for drinking water as the demand for clean water increased. Often, the companies using reverse osmosis or distillation will demonstrate TDS (total dissolved solids) levels to support their claims that their systems are producing healthier water. In reality, TDS levels are only indicating that the minerals, mainly magnesium and calcium, have been removed from the water. TDS levels have very little to do with actual contamination levels. The key is to use a water filtration system that preserves a healthy supply of natural minerals and removes the dangerous toxins and synthetic chemicals from the water. Minerals are essential for healthy function of the bodys systems. After much research, the World health Organization has determined that water should contain minimum levels of certain essential minerals.
"the longer one consumes distilled water the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state." Dr. Zolton Rona, author of The Joy of Health
There have been multiple studies that indicate the potential for a mineral deficiency when consuming water that has been stripped of its essential minerals. In addition, de-mineralized water contains more hydrogen which turns it into an acid. Our bodies will naturally pull minerals from our teeth and bones to produce bicarbonate in an effort to reduce the acid levels in the body. Also, a body that has become more acidic than alkaline based will produce more free radicals, ultimately creating an increased risk of cancer. Studies have shown that cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment. This is a point worth noting as the areas in the world where cancer occurrence is lowest and people are largely disease-free are the regions where people drink natural, mineral-rich water. Consequently, it is important to reiterate a water filtration process that effectively eliminates contaminants without discarding valuable minerals is a wise choice and Aquasana is the best water filtration system you can purchase.
Bottled water is a multi-billion dollar business that is largely unregulated. There is no guarantee that the water you drink from a bottle is any safer or healthier than water from the tap. In fact, regulations are even less stringent than for water purification plants. The safest route to healthy, clean water is a home filtration system and the Aquasana products have demonstrated to be the best in producing quality drinking water.
