Clean Water …. day 27
Clean water is core to good health. While there are many factors that determine how much water makes up the human body, the average is some where around 65%. When broken down into various organs water makes up 75% of our brain, 80% of our blood, and 96% of our liver. Amazing, huh? There’s no getting around it. Water is important in nearly every aspect of our health. We know that drinking enough water each day is essential.
We need to make sure that this water that we are taking into our bodies is clean water. But it’s not just the water that we drink that is important, but also water that we bath with, cook with and play in. These can affect our health as well. When the streams, rivers and lakes are polluted, the fish and wildlife that rely on that water are also affected. In the long run this affects us in a bad way.
While Shaklee has developed cleaning products that are environmentally friendly and bio-degradable, that was just not enough. Going a step further in their Get Clean line, Shaklee has developed GET CLEAN® WATER to provide us with clean water in our homes.
What Shaklee Has to Say
The water from your tap may look clean, but exactly how safe is it? Relax. Cleaner, healthier water is just a pitcher away.
Introducing Get Clean Water Get Clean Water is a revolutionary new water-filtration pitcher system certified by the Water Quality Association (WQA) to reduce up to 99% of lead1, as well as dozens of other nasty contaminants that can turn up in your water and may be harmful to your health.
