The health benefits of having a water filtration system in your home Ensuring the water that your family drinks, cooks with, and bathes with is important in making sure they are healthy and happy. A whole house water filtration system will help protect you and your family from the harmful chemicals and toxins that can be found in tap water. The many health benefits of installing a whole home water filtration far outweigh the costs when it comes to keeping your family safe. One sign of good health is the condition of a person's hair. Silky and shiny hair is considered to be healthy hair. However, this is near impossible to obtain with just plain tap water. Water that is delivered into your home from the water company has typically been treated with chlorine. Chlorine is a chemical which can dry hair out making it rough and brittle. Removing this chemical from your water will make your hair smoother and shiner. Another sign that someone is healthy is the appearance of their skin. Chlorine does heavy damage to the skin as well. Bathing and showering in hot water enable the chlorine to not only have an effect on the outside of your body, but inside as well. Hot water opens the pores of the skin and allows toxins to creep into your body which can damage the digestive system and cause certain types of cancer. Chlorine on the outside of your skin can cause the skin to becomes dry and flaky. A whole home water filtration system will remove chlorine and other harmful toxins from your water which will help your skin to be soft and smooth without the use of lotions and medications that can be costly. Nails are another way to tell outwardly if someone is healthy. Healthy nails are usually a good indication of what is going on inside the body. However, exposure to chlorine and other toxins in normal tap water can cause the nails to become brittle and dry. The nails can be effected by direct contact while performing tasks such as washing the dishes or bathing, or they can be indirectly effected by the water your drink. A filtration system that removes the toxins and chlorine from the water before it is delivered into your home will help your nails grow much faster and will improve the overall strength of your nails. Another health benefit of filtered water is weight control. Harmful chemicals in your body can effect your metabolism and can cause your body to absorb more sugars and toxins, thus causing your to gain weight. If you are fighting a battle with weight loss, a water filtration system may be a recommended tool. Looking to install a whole house water filtration system in your Orlando home?
