Dear parents, do you know which natural element offers the following functions and benefits?
Transports nutrients to the human organs and tissues
Supports digestion by removing waste and other toxins
Regulates body temperature
Moisturises the skin and keep it smooth and supple
Lubricates and cushions joints
Keeps mucus membranes in the lungs and mouth moist
Protects the foetus within the amniotic sac in a pregnant woman’s womb
The answer is, of course, WATER.
Making up 50 to 75 percent of the human body, water is essential for most of our bodily functions. That is why nutritionists recommend that we drink at least eight glasses of water daily. Moreover, for kids who perspire a lot during their active pursuits, it is most important to help them stay hydrated and replenish the water in their bodies throughout the day.
Tap water’s not enough
In Singapore, simply turning on the tap will give you clean drinking water that is well within the World Health Organisation (WHO) drinking water guidelines. However, many families still want to take additional measures to filter out any other impurities.
In fact, we have heard how some parents go to great lengths to ensure that their kids drink water of the highest quality, be it for their children’s healthy growth and development, or even to alleviate certain health issues.
“I used to have eczema and so did my son. I discovered that those things we apply externally are just treating the symptoms of eczema. Changing the drinking water for our family has really helped me and my son… we no longer have eczema,” posted blesseddad on the KiasuParents’ forum.
Other families turn to filtered water simply because it tastes better than drinking cold or boiled tap water. “My colleagues shared that after drinking filtered water, they won’t want the boiled tap water anymore,” said KiasuParents forum user, starlight1969sg.
Another forum user scang also commented: “Based on what I understand, boiling tap water may not remove some of the fine contaminants, chlorine odour and taste as well as chemicals, which a proper filter system does.”
