You probably already know that eating high quality food is the key to a healthy body. But did you know that the quality of your water is just as important? Perhaps you simply put your water through a Brita filter and tell yourself “it’s fine” and that it’s “too expensive to change to pure water.. tap water is good enough”.

Well, you might think tap water is good enough, but let me ask you;

If you watched someone put a drop of poison in your water, would you drink it?


Poisons Found in Tap Water

Your tap water has more than just one drop of poison in it. Here’s a list of some of the chemicals and poisons in most tap water:

  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Disinfectants & byproducts
  • Agricultural & industrial chemicals
  • Heavy metals including mercury & lead
  • Microorganisms
  • Hormones & hormone mimicking chemicals
  • Fluoride-this really deserves its own post
  • MTBE- from oil spills and more
  • Volatile organic compounds-VOCs
  • Polychlorinated Biphenyls- PCBs
  • BPAs
  • Viruses, parasites & bacteria

Um, would you like some parasites in your water? No, thanks!

Bottle Water - Yay or Nay

Bottled water is a poor solution, too. For one, most of it is equally as shitty as tap water - or worse.

Recent tests by [provide link here] showed bottled water contains [a stat here]. Also, it’s not cost effective. And then there’s the pollution problem…

So whats the answer, Ana?

Glad you asked! Read on my dear, the answer is near 😉

The Berkey Water System

Get ready to drink water as nature intended!

THE BERKEY WATER SYSTEM can remove hundreds of contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, cysts, parasites, pesticides, chlorine, fluoride, VOC's.

I personally tested the water with Adya water drops, which separates contaminants out of tap water. Usually after 24 hours of using the drops, you can see a yellowish film on the bottom of container. With Berkey, it is clean and pristine. It cleans up to 99.99% of contaminants. Whole house systems often compare themselves to Berkey. 

A couple things to note:

CA residents can only order the travel Berkey or the Berkey Light which holds 2.5 gallons of water. This is what I have and it’s plenty for me. 

Berkey has 2 main filters which filter out most contaminants, as stated above, up to 99.99%. However, they do not remove fluoride and arsenic (can you believe there’s arsenic in our water?!) I recommend getting the attachment filters as well, which remove those two things.

Water, truly is life.
