filtered water and allergies

Do you suffer from allergies? Millions of people around the world suffer from allergies, usually due to certain types of food, dust and pollen. Each time the immune system detects an allergen, it produces the corresponding antibodies to fight it, thereby causing the known nasty symptoms.

However, although most of our allergens are known, almost no one knows that drinking water also has its own share of responsibility for allergies. While we all acknowledge the importance of water to our body health and well-being, we often neglect its quality and, therefore, the installation of a reliable water filter.

So don't be surprised that research has shown that certain allergies and respiratory ailments are caused by the chemicals in tap water.


Allergies and potable tap water

Chlorine, its derivatives and fluorine are widely used in water systems to disinfect water from dangerous pathogens, making it safe for consumption.

However, these substances, while disinfecting water, can be poisonous to human body. In many cases, the human body recognizes these chemicals in tap water as allergens and reacts to the potential danger.

Research has shown that these substances can worsen asthma symptoms, cause eye and skin irritation, and, in some cases, even bronchitis.

Anyone who has allergies knows that the symptoms are due to histamine, as its role is to trigger an immediate inflammatory reaction. But do you know how body hydration affects our levels of histamine?

In a dehydrated organism, the levels of histamine are increased in order to retain water and break it down in the body. So we understand that keeping our body hydrated with clean water daily helps strengthen it when dealing with allergies. In addition, we enhance the retention of moisture in our skin by actively contributing to the fight against atopic dermatitis.

It is no coincidence that people with skin allergies usually have dry and irritated skin. So moisturizing prevents dry skin and helps heal wounds and reduce itching.


Water filter and protection against allergies

If you and your family are suffering from allergies, then installing a tap water filter is a step you should take.

Home water filters remove a host of harmful substances that tap water contains such as chlorine, pesticide residues, nitrates, arsenic , salts etc.

If you have eye and skin irritations and want to protect your skin's pH, then it is advisable to install a water filter to the shower as well.

Shower water filters snap easily to your faucet and allow you to pamper your skin with water free of harmful chemicals.

Installing a certified water filter enhances the health of your body and removes the harmful substances you unknowingly intake daily.

A simple yet useful device ensures that the whole family consumes healthy water daily. So are you still thinking about it? Contact us to discuss your needs and suggest the right solution for clean water.
