Why water filtration is an Olympic winner

Elite athletes know the benefits of drinking filtered water and staying hydrated will be a primary concern of the Olympic medal hopefuls.  If watching the top athletes in action inspires you to get out and do something yourself then drinking filtered water is the key to making the most of exercise. Here’s why top athletes drink water to win:

Energy and power – Even just a slight drop in hydration levels has a big impact on mental and physical ability. During exercise the body loses even more water than normal through body heat and sweat so drinking enough fluid means you can work harder for longer.

Less injuries – Being dehydrated can cause cramps, fatigue, dizziness and even an increased heart rate. Water also lubricates the muscles and joints making them less susceptible to sprains, tears and damage.

Faster metabolism – this is the amount of energy we burn while we are awake and active. Water increases blood volume and a properly hydrated body is able to work more efficiently

Filtered water provides the cleanest, tastiest and safest way to avoid dehydration. Removing impurities such as metals, chemicals and other unpleasant solutions which are found in tap water means the body is not fighting off unwanted toxins and is working to keep you healthy and energised.

And with our excellent water filter range, The Water Filter Company can help you bring the best and safest filtered water to your home, whether you’re an athlete or not!
