Updated: Apr 12

Hello there! Today, we're diving into a topic that might have you rethinking your hydration game – the quality of your drinking water. It turns out that the water flowing from your tap might not be as pure as you'd hoped. Let's talk about the dangers posed by chemicals like chromium, chlorine, nitrates as well as microplastics, and other toxins found in tap water, and discover how Refresh Pure Water can be your solution.

Toxins Found In Tap Water

Chromium: Ever heard of hexavalent chromium? It's a harmful chemical that can contaminate water due to industrial processes. Consuming even small amounts over time can lead to serious health issues, including respiratory problems and an increased risk of cancer. We have Erin Brockovich to thank for the increased levels of awareness around this but there are some more that you might not be aware of, so read on….

Dirty tap water

Chlorine: While chlorine does a great job of disinfecting pools, having it in your tap water is a different story. Chlorine byproducts can pose health risks, from exacerbating asthma to potentially causing higher cholesterol levels, a weakened immune system, and an increased risk of bladder cancer.

Nitrates: Nitrates might not sound like much, but they can seep into water from farming runoff or septic systems. They're particularly dangerous for infants and can lead to methemoglobinemia or "blue baby syndrome" which is the baby's inability for their blood to carry oxygen to all parts of the body. Not what we want in our water!

Microplastics found in tap water

Microplastics: Microplastics, those microscopic plastic particles, have found their way into our drinking water from sources like plastic bottles. They can carry harmful chemicals and their ingestion could have various health impacts, including inflammation and even the accumulation of these particles in our tissues. Microplastics are silently multiplying in our waters, highlighting the urgent need for sustainable choices and environmental action.

Microbial Contaminants: Now, let's talk about microbial contaminants, which include a range of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, yeast, mold, fungi, prions, and protozoa, along with their by-products. These can potentially lead to a variety of illnesses and health complications when present in drinking water.
