With sales of $11 billion a year, bottled water is a successful product available throughout the world.

Many countries, particularly developed countries, regulate the quality of bottled water through government standards.

Bottled WaterThere is something you shpould know about bottled water, and that is – when we think of bottled water we imagine hot tennis players drinking it between matches. One of the thing, which comes in our minds is that rich people drink it, and this is one of the reasons why bottled water has become so popular. All of these rich famous people on television drinking it. If you are thirsty – the first thing you can think of would be water, and when you go to the store – you will see a huge number of brands. It is good to have it with you while you are out walking or exercising and do not have it near to you.

Is bottled water a rip off?

And the short answer to this question should be – Yes. There is nothing so special about bottled water, only the way it has been marketed, is the great thing around it. Marketed as something we all should drink and the best thing that we can get as well, but keep in mind that these companies have one main goal – to sell you bottled water, no matter you need it or no.

Is bottled water better for you than tap water?

StatsIf we have to be honest with you, well the answer is: No, it certainly isn’t. And just for the record – most bottled water is just tap water. It doesn’t have the sma taste like the tap has, because it is filtered and purified, the idea is simple – everything, which makes you drink more water is great. Now you think that it is a big waste of money, it depends on the point of view, you certainly do not get something that your body will jump for joy.

We want to tell you this – Pay Attention what you buy though. Some of the bottled waters have different elements added to it, instead of others. There is a cases where they put sugar or other flavorings to it in order to get the best tatse for their clients. That’s why some do not taste like pure water. You can find it also marketed as bottled water took from a spring or a mountain river. You will ask yourself: is it better? Well, to tell you the true – not really, it has some minerals in it that tap water does not have, but generaly speaking it the same, just more expensive.

What do you do if you like the taste of bottled water but you don’t like the taste of your tap water?

For beginners, I would suggest that you don’t go to the store to get more bottled water. There is a large selection of products that you could use to filter your tap water. One of the best products, helping you do this is the pitcher with the filter in it. You have seen such stuff on television before, it works simple – the water goes through a filter.

These tend to be less expensive and easy to use. It doesn’t take much brain power to be able to fill a pitcher with water. Check your local shop, I’m sure that you will find one there. There are also filters that you can put right over your faucet. These tend to be the best thing to use. They are easy to use and easy to replace the filters. You can get these at any Wal Mart or store like that.

There is always the water filtering system. You know, the ones with the pellets and all that garbage. Personally, I think these are a pain in the ass. We don’t know why people get these instead of the smaller faucet units.

We know that some people have to use these because of the condition of their water. Sometimes the water is too hard and you need to soften it. Though, that does sound like a plot for a porno movie.

The problem We see with the bottled water is, it is too expensive. They are charging you an arm and a leg for something you can get next to free. Why should you pay for it? Well, you shouldn’t. I don’t know why people don’t feel guilty for buying bottled water. It is one step up from going to a whore. You should stop drinking the bottled water and see how much money you save just for one month. We find it crazy that there are people around the world dying of starvation and disease and we pay a dollar or more for a bottle of water. That seems so crazy to me. You can also use bottled water, when you do sports and weight loss exercises, it is a good helper, while you do that.
