Victoria Beckham, aka Posh spice, has discussed her moon water ritual which is said to help cleanse the body. Dr Amir appeared on Lorraine to discuss whether it has any health benefits.
Although moon water might not be as effective to one’s health as many claim it to be, ensuring you are drinking enough regular water is vital.
It’s commonly recommended that a person should drink eight glasses of 237ml of water per day.
Drinking water can prevent dehydration, a condition that can cause unclear thinking, result in mood change, cause your body to overheat, and lead to constipation and kidney stones.
Filtered water Vs unfiltered water
While drinking tap water is safe, we all know it tastes pretty bad due to the chemicals used to treat it.
In most Western countries, public drinking water is purified to make water safe for human consumption.
However, standards for drinking water around the world vary and are typically based on governmental regulations or international standards.
While tap water is safe to drink in many areas, it may still contain trace contaminants.
Water purification systems like charcoal filters remove chlorine, a common chemical added to the public water supply as a disinfectant.
Several studies have linked chlorinated water to an increased risk of certain cancers, including colorectal cancer.
