WHAT SHOULD YOUR WATER BE?
- balanced pH (approximately 7.4 to match your body’s natural pH)
Beyond the water quality, the quality of the water container or bottle is also important. I love Core Natural water, because the bottle is made from 100% recyclable plastic. This ultra purified water – free of chlorine, arsenic, fluoride & MTBE – is also infused with electrolytes and minerals to ensure top hydration. Nearly everywhere I go, I’m touting one of these Core bottles around to keep myself hydrated and balanced throughout the day. According to Core, we can only effectively assimilate the vitamins, minerals and food supplements we need to survive when our body's pH is in the optimal range (that is between 7.35 and 7.45.)
But what if you're more accustomed to drinking water at home, and bottling it yourself? Another great solution is a top-line water filter. I’ve just had the opportunity to test one of the most trending water filters right now by Soma, deemed by Fast Company as “the more beautiful, sustainable alternative to Brita.”
I had the opportunity to use the Soma Glass Carafe, which indeed makes for a beautiful table centerpiece. Made of borosilicate glass, this sleek carafe won't break and holds 6-cups of filtered water. Not only is the carafe beautiful, it's super easy to use! I just held it underneath my sink's faucet and the lid opened for me so I can fill it with water. Pure magic!
HERE'S WHAT I LOVE ABOU THE SOMA GLASS CARAFE:
- the reservoir is made of BPA-free plastic (BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. Some research has shown that BPA can seep into beverages from containers made with BPA, and exposure to this chemical might affect brain and behavioral health. )
- 60% of the filter is comprised of plant-based, renewable materials (talk about clean living!)
- the filter eliminates popular contaminants chlorine and zinc
Now, here’s the thing. If you're a water bottle person that's constantly on the run like me, we’ve got another viable option for you from Soma. Soma just released its glass water bottle, another sustainable piece that’s sporty, yet elegant. Today, well-designed water bottles have become as popular as workout attire – whether or not you’re hitting the gym, your frequently donning fitness apparel and fitness accessories! This is likely due to the increased trend and interest in healthy, clean living. Just look at some of these fancy water bottles!
Nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide (or 2x the population of the United States) live without clean water. Make a difference. Invest in your health and the health of others.
