What’s wrong with tap water?

 It often lacks nutrients that help sustain healthy blood and oxygen levels. Because its sources, reservoir rainwater and rivers, can be contaminated, tap water must be treated with chemicals before it can be piped to your home. Most municipalities use chlorine to kill bacteria in water. High levels of chlorine, arsenic and benzene in drinking water have been shown to increase our risk of cancer.

What’s wrong with individual bottled water?

The use of individual bottled water has grown hugely over the years. Unfortunately, the plastic many of these bottles are made of contains BPA, which is known to have negative health effects. Americans throw away 25,000,000 plastic beverage bottles every hour. Even if these bottles are recycled, it takes a lot of natural resources to create them and energy to recycle them. This makes individual bottled water bad for our environment and for our health.

What about the big name water companies?

Make sure it’s not modified tap water. Pictures of snowy mountains don’t guarantee that this water comes directly from a geologic source. Pepsi and Coca-Cola both add some minerals to tap water and bottle their own brands, Aquafina and Dasani.

Profits from sales by the big name home delivery water companies go to shareholders around the world rather than remaining in your community. Mayacamas puts its profits back into your community.

Surely reverse osmosis filters don’t have any of these drawbacks?

These filters can only remove contaminants that are of a larger molecular structure than water. So while they remove some toxins, they DON’T remove herbicides and pesticides, which are made of small molecules and are commonly found in our water supply.  What these filters DO remove is the water's natural minerals, such as calcium. Stripped of its natural minerals, the water becomes slightly acidic. To regain its pH balance, our body pulls minerals from our bones and teeth, leading to health problems. This pH imbalance also causes an increase in the production of free radicals, putting us at greater risk of certain cancers. Natural mineral water helps our bodies maintain the healthy balance needed to fight disease.
