The biggest advantage of bottled water is that it is both convenient as well as safe. When you are travelling to go to work, the gym, or anywhere, you can never be completely sure if there will be clean and safe drinking water at your destination or on your way there.
One company we highly recommend for your bottled water needs is MEND Water. Their bottled water is pure and filtered to remove any harmful chemicals and bacteria, leaving you feeling better and healthier. Many water processing plants use dangerous chemicals to purify their water, but the MEND Water purification systems do not. Chemicals in water that has not been purified correctly can have adverse effects on both your mind and your body. If the fluoride content in your unfiltered tap water is too high, for example, it can lead to discolored teeth and fragile bones!
Other benefits of bottled water is that it will ensure you are properly hydrated at all times. Tests have shown that a drop in body fluids can lead to poor mental and physical performance of 30%. Carrying fresh water with you, and having regular sips of water will ensure 1. that you are never thirsty, and 2. that you will always perform at your best.
In 2007, Chase Norton came across a water crisis charitable foundation online based on the east coast. Norton was deeply affected after learning about the worldwide water crisis and seeing pictures of the billions of people who do not have access to clean drinking water. Growing up in a neighborhood of Newport Beach, drinking VOSS, Smart Water, Fiji and Acqua Panna was an everyday occurrence. Norton wanted to create a premium, consumer goods brand of bottled water delivery service that by its substantially higher price point would help build wells for people in third world countries who do not have access to clean drinking water. The water delivered is in fact described as “ultra pure”: MEND water goes through a rigorous 11 hour, 13 step purification process. It is tested, retested and recorded along each step of the way. Norton started MEND after quitting his job as a Series 7 Licensee Bond Broker for Finance 500.
The company is now delivering to all of Southern California and has a clientele that includes athletes, celebrities, high-profile executives, doctors, wellness centers, health-conscious families and more. With the right choices, we can make both our bodies and the world a healthier place to live in.
