Our crowded, modern world is more polluted than nature intended, and it takes a toll on our water. According to the EPA, common water contaminants in US municipal water include microorganisms, disinfectants, inorganic chemicals (like arsenic, fluoride, lead, and mercury), organic chemicals, and even radiation! These pollutants in our water can hurt our well-being, but we can’t avoid our need for water—it is necessary for life. Water is the best way to stay hydrated, focused, and aware. We need it to operate smoothly, facilitate digestion, lubricate joints, push out toxins, prevent fatigue from dehydration, & give us energy. Water is the easiest way to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
According to estimates by the EPA, 20%
of exposure to lead is from drinking water! You'd be surprised with what hides in your tap water supply.Common contaminants like inorganic chemicals (such as arsenic, fluoride, lead, & mercury), organic chemicals, disinfectants, microorganisms, even radiation! And yeah, you heard us right—these are common! Who knew water could be so scary?At Dream Tree, clean, pure water is only our starting point! More often than not, bottled water companies and filtration systems end up removing both the good and the bad from water. This leaves what we at Dream Tree call dead, acidic water—water with a lower pH and without the essential minerals of water found in nature.
Our health is very closely linked to the pH levels of the water and blood circulating in our bodies. A low pH contributes to an acidic body that is a breeding ground for disease which is why Dream Tree offers alkaline water solutions. Alkaline water helps to raise the pH of your body so that it can function like it should and hydrate more efficiently.
A higher level of acidity in your body isn’t the only factor that contributes to poor health. Dehydration can slow your metabolism and lead to weight gain, impair your mental abilities, and leave you feeling exhausted, hungry, and grumpy. This is another area that Dream Tree goes above and beyond because many of our products are able to create very small clusters of water molecules, or microclusters. Water that is delivered to your cells in microcluster form are able to hydrate you faster and more effectively.
And don’t be fooled by other alkaline water companies that use electrical ionizers to zap water into a dead alkaline condition! Our patented ceramic conversion process transforms water to an alkaline state while adding essential minerals and antioxidants. Dream Tree water is living water! That's why Dream Tree offers water solutions for the way that we live! From Antioxidant Alkaline Water to filtered shower heads & Whole House Systems we have something to offer every need and budget.
