Staying hydrated this festive season – 5 reasons why you should drink Alkaline Water

20th December, 2017
zazen Alkaline Water System

With the silly season now upon us, and the beautiful warm summer weather here, it is now more important than ever to keep up your fluids with the right quality and quantity of water to ensure that you are staying hydrated during this busy and festive time. Drinking filtered alkaline mineral water is foundational for longevity and wellbeing.
Water is required for every biological function of the body – circulation, assimilation, digestion, elimination, temperature control and even thought. Our body is made up of 75% water and our brain is 91%, so by drinking water we replenish the water lost on a daily basis. Without water, even the best vitamins and minerals cannot be absorbed or made available for cellular processes and proper bodily function. We need water as much as we need air. Yet it is easy to forget how completely we depend on it.

Today we explore what are the key benefits of drinking alkaline water and how it affects the body:

New Healthy Food Pyramid tells us to Choose Water

19th May, 2015

We are thrilled to see a new and improved "Healthy Eating Pyramid" from Nutrition Australia. The pyramid shows at the bottom to "Choose Water" as your beverage of choice.  They state that the simplest way to get healthier is to cut down on junk food and sugary drinks. We couldn't agree more of course, and most of our customers are not only focused on filtering and alkalising their water, but choosing organic fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy, herbs and eating a diet that is oriented to alkaline foods that have been grown to sustain their nutritional value.

10 Reasons to Drink Good Water

10th October, 2014
The body is 75% water

Did you know that your body is 75% water?  When we teach the kids our Water Ambassador lessons as part of our school program, we tell them this, and go on to tell them they aren't 75% juice, or 75% milk, only 75% water!  Maybe for adults, the equivalent is tea/coffee and wine/beer for the drinkers!  So it makes sense that the liquid we drink the most is water.  And water in our tea, coffee and fruit juice unfortunately doesn't count – only straight water!  So why is replacing this water so important?
