Graze and we have our own water filtration unit so we don't have to contribute to the loads of plastics in land fills and we walk everywhere and use public transit.
Am I crazy to have this? No.
Do I want to give my family the best water? Yes.
Do I hate bottled water and the plastic it comes in? YES!
When the transition came to include water into Charlies diet I was researching different water filtering companies and I almost went with Mountain Valley Spring Water which is a wonderful company as they offer glass filtered water units.
With all the hoopla about BPA I was considering my options and tap water for me is fine but I wanted something better for my son so my mom got me this Santevia water system she bought it in Winnipeg at A1Nutrition in Grant Park Mall (204)475-7522. We have the unit that's in the center of the picture, I'd love to get my hands on the stainless steel water bottles. Another thing I like about this system is that water is at room temperature which is great for his tummy. I use it for cooking, my morning cup of joe and we save on buying bottled water when we go out I always have water with me and I trust the resource where it's coming from.
It is BPA free, "it has revolutionized tap water, creating pure, fresh tasting water that is healthier for you and more cost effective than bottled water. Using an eight stage filtration and re-mineralization system, the Santevia™ Water System cleans, mineralizes and invigorates your water while adjusting the pH level to mildly alkaline."
There is a difference when you taste this water compared to regular tap water.
Here's a quote from one of their customers: "So I had the alkaline level tested of my regular tap water, before and after it was filtered. The results... The Santevia™ water filter changed my tap water from being an unhealthy, acidic 6.5 to a healthy, alkaline of 8.0"
It has an 8 Stage water filtration process with a magnetic spout. The process uses a patented five-layer toxin removal and sterilization system shown to produce water that is contaminant free. Its ceramic pre-filter has a pore size blocks bacteria, germs, parasites and particulates, it adjusts your water's pH(as mentioned above) to mildly alkaline by reintroducing minerals that promote ionization and oxygenation, helping your body balance it's acid/alkaline levels.
We were spoiled when we got this and it's really not that crazy expensive, it can retail for $199.99 and you need to change the filter every 6 months and the cost of the filter was $32.99, not bad considering what beautiful tasting, alkalized healthy water we have to replenish the body.
*Disclaimer: Santevia has nothing to do with Everything Mom and Baby when this blog post was writter. This product was purchased.
This is my honest opinion that I wanted to share with you, it is not influenced in any way and it's to give you an idea on healthy choices you can consider for you and your family.
