Reduce colon cancer and bladder cancer – Research shows that drinking adequate amounts of water can reduce your risk of colon cancer by 45% and bladder cancer by 50%.

Helps lubricate joints – The lining of cartilage between the joints use water as a cushion between the bones so that the joints can move easily.

So the answer is yes, drinking clean water can help you live longer. On a very basic level, your body cannot store up to its own supply of water. It needs a fresh intake of valuable water to hydrate cells and removes toxins through your liver and later kidneys. Without this vital replenishing of water, your body dehydrates, slows down and your blood literally 'thickens' as your body releases histamines in an effort to store water up in cells. This has a negative health effect as you are likely to experience headaches and lethargy among other generally negative health effects. Seeing how much the body really needs water it is imperative we all get our daily worth! If you are not sure how much water you should drink refer to this: One cup for every 20 pounds of body weight. For example, a 190-pound person who does not exercise or work in hot climates should drink 9.5 cups. If you exercise and work in hot conditions you should drink extra to account for the water that is lost in these conditions.

Water consumption is crucial to a healthy lifestyle. However, the quality of the water you are consuming is just as important. Pure water is the best water to drink to avoid any contaminants from entering your body. Drinking water with contaminants will reverse the benefits that pure water gives you by adding more toxins in your body. Filtration systems that use Reverse Osmosis technology are guaranteed to remove 90-99% of contaminants in the water. This is as good as, if not better, than bottled water! Giving your body pure water will allow it to absorb as much pure water as your body needs.
