The best home water filters and why you need to clean up your water NOW!
After air, the most important nutrient you need in your body is water. Water not only hydrates our bodies, but it also helps the body remove and flush environmental and metabolic waste.
However, despite local government's best efforts, our public water supplies are full of toxins and pollutants that threaten our long term health.
In fact, public and private studies have proven that public water supplies in many parts of the world are contaminated with fluoride, chlorine, volatile organic chemicals ("VOCs"), heavy metals, estrogens from birth control medications, agricultural chemicals/pesticides, and more.
I know what you're thinking, "I'm set because I use a water filter pitcher." Well, those store bought filters remove only a tiny portion of the contaminants, leaving most of them behind for your consumption. This includes the filter in your fridge!
There are a lot of great home water filters on the market to help improve the quality of your drinking water.
The following 3 home water filters are systems we use in our homes and are also some of the most affordable units you can buy (with the exception of #3).
3 of the Best Home Water Filters You can buy
Home Water Filter #1: Steam Distillers
Steam distillers are number #1 on our list of the best home water filters because they can eliminate almost all contaminants by isolating pure water through steam extraction.
In a steam distiller, tap water is steamed within the system separating water vapor (steam) from the various contaminants and toxins.

The only downside to steam distillers is that they eliminate everything, include beneficial minerals. If you use a distiller as your home water filter, it is important to add a pinch of raw sea salt to each gallon to replace the electrolytes and trace minerals.
Home Water Filter #2: Alkaline Water Machines
Alkaline water machines or "Water Ionizers" use a combination of carbon filters and electrolysis to separate tap water into acidic and alkaline components, resulting in what is commonly referred to as "Alkaline Water."
Clean water should have a pH of around 7.6, which is equal to the natural pH of our bodies.
The alkaline water machine is one of the best home water filters because it can rapidly isolate and separate water molecules with a pH close to 7.6, from molecules that are above or below that.
Because many contaminants have a pH that is different than water, the machine helps filter out as much as possible, sending the waste water down the drain.
Note: Be careful when shopping around for Alkaline Water Machines, as many are sold under a MLM structure and can cost 5 times the cost of something you can find on Amazon.
Machines like Kangen aren't better, they're just more expensive since the sales rep's commission is baked into the price.
Home Water Filter #3: Whole Home Water Filters
Unfortunately, whole home water filters are very expensive and often require professional installation. However, they truly are a must in today's toxic world.
Alkaline water machines and steam distillers are great for filtering drinking water, but they do not filter the water we bath in or wash our dishes and clothes with.
Whole home water filters help remove as much of these pollutants as they come into your home. This "front line defense" is important; especially in older neighborhoods where the plumbing infrastructure way be old and corroded.
Conclusion: Water is essential to life and getting the best home water filter you can is essential to optimizing your health and wellness. Governments do the best they can to eliminate the most dangerous pathogens, but they can't remove anything.
