Today, people have a wide range of choices for drinking water. There’s tap water, mineral water, spring water, purified water, distilled water, and filtered water. The health benefits of mineral water are pretty well known. But what about filtered purified water? How can it benefit you and your health? This guide will provide you with useful information concerning water filtration and the specific benefits of Nova Filters. Additionally, you will learn about some of the basic science involved in water filtration. But first, let’s start with the top 5 benefits of filtered water.

Filtered water will help reduce the presence of numerous carcinogenic substances. Disinfection by-products (DBPs) are a type of carcinogen that results from the chemical reaction of chlorine (used to disinfect drinking water) and natural organic substances. Using Nova proprietary Coconut carbon reduces these contaminants better than any other on the market. A quick review of your water bill from most municipalities usually revels several by-products from the disinfection process both being class B carcinogens. TTHM (for total trihalomethanes) and haloacetic acids (HAAs). See further detail on the CDC website. Consuming these by-products is even more harmful than the direct consumption of chlorine. DBPs have been known to cause a range of cancers, including rectal, colon, and bladder cancer. Thankfully, filtering water gets rid of DBPs, thus may reduce the risk of getting certain cancers.
