Why Good Water Filters = Healthier Thyroids!

Why Good Water Filters = Healthier Thyroids!

Why is fresh, clean water so important for our health?


Have you noticed the taste of tap water?  Have you smelt those ghastly chlorine fumes when running a bath or shower? Do you notice the feel of your skin when you step out of the shower – dry and rough skin? When you start drinking filtered water on a regular basis, you will never go back to tap water or have any desire for it ever again!




In order to maintain adequate hydration of the body, our cells and tissues require pure water, free from chemicals and toxins. Standard drinking tap water is likened to a chemical cocktail of harmful, destructive components that do little for our hydration or state of overall health. One of the most detrimental effects these chemicals can have is creating thyroid dysfunction.  Chlorine and fluoride are two of the major culprits that block the production of our thyroid hormones.  So if you regularly drink tap water you are not doing your body any favours! Both chlorine and fluoride block our #1 nutrient, Iodine, from being absorbed into the body’s cells. And why does this matter??? Simply because Iodine is one of the main things we need to produce our thyroid hormones.


Zazen water filters

Keep in mind there are number of points to consider when selecting a water filter:

  • Does it remove fluoride and chlorine?
  • Does it remove other chemicals, pollutants, bacteria etc?
  • What is the filter made of?
  • How often do you need a replacement filter?
  • Can the company provide lab test results that clearly depict the removal of chemicals?
  • MOST Importantly: does it remineralize the water to keep it alkaline?


**Best idea is to go online and see what is available with each company.  Most places will offer a number of different units to suit your individual needs.  For example, there are bench top units, shower filters, fridge and caravan units and whole house filtration systems.  We highly recommend the Zazen filters and have found these to work really well.


The solution to this is to ensure you drink filtered water daily.
