Here’s Why Well Water Is Good for Your Health

Here's Why Well Water is Good for Your HealthWhether you are trying to lose weight or brighten up your skin, everyone you talk to will tell you one same thing: stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. Water is the elixir of life and offers several health benefits. Unfortunately, the water supplied by municipal authorities in Metro-Detroit undergoes a rigorous cleaning process during which it is often treated with several chemicals. Some of these chemicals make way into our home’s water supply, rendering this water unfit to drink. It is, thus, that homeowners around the world are choosing to get private water wells installed. The water supplied by these wells is not only chemical-free but also far tastier and healthier.

In this article, we share with our readers four lesser-known health benefits of well water.

It Can Help You Shed Those Extra Pounds

Tell a dietician you want to lose weight and the first thing they will tell you is drink as much water as you can. More often than not, when our body craves food, it is just thirsty. So, the next time you feel munching on a chocolate bar, try to satiate your cravings with water first. Water all fills you up, which, in turn, reduces the number of calories you take. Thus, water plays a key role in weight loss. Unfortunately, when water is laden with chemicals, its weight-loss effect becomes diminished. Water obtained from wells is chemical-free. More importantly, it is tastier and thus, can easily be consumed in higher amounts.

Well Water Improves Cardiovascular Health

When you stay hydrated for far too long, the blood within the body thickens, which in turn, leads to low blood volume and pressure. When this happens, the body has to work doubly hard to maintain the required blood pressure. That apart, the lack of water within the body also makes the body people more susceptible to cardiovascular diseases. The veracity of these facts has been confirmed by many scientific studies. Staying hydrated, therefore, is key to good cardiovascular health.

It Is Good for Your Skin

Water does wonders for the skin by eliminating all the toxins flowing within our bodies. That apart, water also keeps acne and pimples away by maintaining the right skin pH. And if all of that isn’t enough to convince you already, water has anti-aging properties and plays a key role in maintaining skin elasticity. However, if the water you are drinking has harmful chemicals in it, irrespective of how many glasses you gulp down each day, your skin will still feel dry and dull. Private well water is healthy as it contains no chemicals and thus, is good for the skin.

Well Water Also Improves Brain Health

75% of the human brain is water and thus, water is considered essential for the proper working of the brain. Water is responsible for transferring all the required minerals and nutrients to the brain to enable its proper functioning as well as eliminating toxins. Thus, when people don’t drink ample water, the water reserve within the brain becomes exhausted. This, in turn, leads to diminished cognitive function and hampered ability to think. Water obtained from wells is far healthier than city water and thus, is better for your brain’s health.

Key Takeaway

Those who have a private well will tell you how much tastier and healthier well water is in comparison to city water. If you live in Metro-Detroit and have been thinking about getting a private well installed, we are certain the benefits discussed in this article have already convinced that you are making the right choice.
