GREEN IS YOUR WATER?
Green is your water?
That was a popular sentiment in this week’s issue of The Huffington Press, as we asked readers if they knew the difference between “organic” and “non-organic” water.
Many people, including many who live in cities, thought the answer was “not a whole lot,” and many people were confused by the word “organic.”
“I guess I just like to think that there are some ingredients that we should really pay attention to, and that the only thing that is not organic is what we’re drinking and eating,” said reader J.R. “I think the best thing to do is to make sure you don’t consume any products that are made with anything other than the most organic ingredients,” he said.
“The best thing is to take care of your body, and be aware of what you’re eating and what you put in your body.”
But not everyone thinks that’s the best approach.
“It seems like there are two or three ingredients in every water bottle that are non-organic,” said user John.
“There’s a lot of things that can be considered organic that are actually not.”
So, we reached out to water experts to help us figure out which ones are organic.
The answers: 1.
All-natural ingredients: There are only a few organic ingredients that you might think of as non-traditional ingredients.
In the past, this was an easy answer to consider, but it can be a tricky concept to understand.
The term “natural” is used to describe ingredients that are not manufactured by any of the industries that are associated with them.
Some of these ingredients are often derived from plants, such as soy, cotton, and almond.
For example, there’s no soybean meal in almond milk.
But other ingredients may be from plants that are grown in the tropics.
No artificial colors: While some of the ingredients in most water bottles may not be organic, most of them are not labeled as such.
And some of these are more common in non-food-related products, like baby bottles, baby food, and toothpaste.
No preservatives: The word “preservative” doesn’t appear on most of the bottles in the article above, but that doesn’t mean that the ingredients aren’t still in there.
Preservatives are chemicals that can help prevent the growth of bacteria in the body.
For example, some non-natural preservatives in toothpaste are often found in fruit and vegetables, like cucumbers and lemons.
Other non-toxic ingredients that can affect the health of the body include many of the natural compounds found in nature, such it vitamins and minerals.
No chemical additives: There may be no chemical ingredients in your water bottle, but you may be drinking some kind of preservative that is added to the water.
Most water bottles contain natural and artificial flavorings that are sometimes added to make water taste better.
But many of these chemicals can be harmful to the body, which may make you want to limit your water intake.
No sugar: Water is often thought of as being healthy, and there’s really no sugar in the water at all.
But it’s important to note that not all water is made with the same ingredients.
Some water is naturally flavored, and some is artificially flavored.
But the truth is that, most, or all, of your water will be non-nutritive.
No sodium: Sodium is an electrolyte that’s found in the urine.
The electrolyte can help you absorb water.
But when you add sodium to water, you can get sodium chloride, which can cause the body to lose water.
This can lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.
No potassium: Keto dieters may have noticed a spike in their blood pressure, which some experts say is a sign of a potassium deficiency.
No trans fats: Trans fats are made from hydrogenated oils and other ingredients.
They’re found in so many food items, including some packaged food items.
Trans fats have been linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and even death.
No gluten: Gluten-free products, whether packaged or not, contain ingredients that contain gluten, which is a protein found in wheat and rye.
Gluten-Free labels are required by the Food and Drug Administration, but most manufacturers don’t carry them on their packaging.
No added sugars: Most of the beverages we consume are naturally sweetened with sugars, such sweetened drinks, fruit juices, and sports drinks.
But sometimes, those products are mixed with sugar.
That can cause a sugar rush, which in turn can cause weight gain.
No chemicals: Some products have added chemicals in them, such artificial flavors, preservatives, or preservatives for color, odor, flavor, and texture.
Some are also made
