Habit of Hydration

Posted by Rayne Water

Cooler weather here in California has many of us changing our habits. Whether you are exercising inside or staying cooler from the hot summer sun, one habit that shouldn’t change is staying hydrated. Many people believe that drinking water is only important during extreme temperatures or when performing extensive exercise activity, but the truth is that staying hydrated all day, every day no matter what the season will lead you to a healthier, happier life.
The cooler weather tends to have us feeling refreshed and thirst is the last thing we are thinking about. When we don’t feel thirsty, we don’t drink as much. However, keeping up with your exercise routine even in cooler weather has plenty of benefits. It is a great way to cure those “winter blues.” It also increases your energy levels, as long as you continue to stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of quality water is essential because you can become just as dehydrated in cooler weather as you can in the heat, and we tend to drink less in the cooler weather because it isn’t on our minds.
To stay hydrated even in the cooler temperatures, experts encourage people to stay away from sugary soft drinks and stick with filtered tap water from a drinking water system. This tap water, free of potentially harmful contaminants, will have you feeling better and looking better all year long. Our home drinking water systems work to effectively reduce contamination through the most advanced drinking water technology and keeping you hydrated and healthy. Hydration habits shouldn’t be forgotten when the cooler weather hits. Staying hydrated all year long is an important part of our daily routines and our drinking water systems are the perfect tools to help you remember to drink quality water daily.

Nothing’s Better Than a Hot Cup of Tea

Posted by Rayne Water

January is National Hot Tea Month and we will agree with millions of other people around the world that there is nothing quite as soothing and relaxing as a cup of tasty, hot tea. For thousands of years, tea has been recognized as a key to good health, and even in today’s modern world it is still touted as having many useful health benefits. Experts agree that all tea is good ; however, we say that all good tea starts with great water.
According to a recent article from WCPO News, green tea consists of natural compounds called polyphenols which may actually protect against several cancers, including those of the prostate, GI tract, lungs, breast, and skin. Likewise, those tea polyphenols strengthen bones and protect against fractures. Furthermore, those who drink tea could see improvements in mood, concentration and performance.
How you make your tea matters and it can certainly affect the final outcome as many tea drinkers know. It takes good water to make good tea. When you have contaminants in your tap water, flavors can be altered or overpowered by the less-appealing flavors of minerals or chemicals which could be present in your tap water. Experts and tea aficionados alike agree that it is best to use purified water or filtered water to avoid any issues that may affect the taste of your tea. Hard water should always be filtered for the best tasting tea. Water filters are available for those with specific water problems or a desire for truly excellent water.
Many people use tap water and boil it on their stovetop before adding the tea. However, boiling contaminated tap water could actually make some contaminants more concentrated and worse for your health. Boiling nitrate-contaminated water does not make it safe to drink and actually increases the concentration of nitrates.
For consumers, the best choice for making great-tasting tea and other beverages is tap water filtered by our home drinking water systems. Our drinking water systems remove harmful contaminants and other pollution which could affect the taste of your water and in turn, your tea. For something that is so good for you to drink, shouldn’t it taste as good too? With one of our water filtration systems, it can!
