Transforming Chlorine Into harmless
Chloride using a quality Shower Filter
Using a quality shower filter can transform damaging
chlorine into chloride and make shower water healthier for consumers. Chlorine is a chemical that is present in many municipal
water supplies. Every time a consumer
takes a shower with chlorine tainted water, the skin absorbs a great deal of
chlorine into the body. By itself,
chlorine is a non-soluble chemical and can cause a number of irritations to the
skin and lead to health issues.
Installing a shower filter that is designed to transform non-soluble
chlorine into soluble chloride can negate the harmful effects of the water and
reduce health risks.
When taking a shower in chlorinated water, consumers will
suffer from skin and hair damage.
Chlorine dries out the skin and reduces the ability of the skin to
absorb moisture. When the level of
moisture is decreased, the skin becomes flaky and irritating. In addition, when skin becomes overly dry it
begins to age prematurely. Chlorine causes
free radical damage to the skin, discoloring the skin and accelerating the
formation of wrinkles. Hair is also
dried out because of the chlorine. The
cumulative effect of taking showers in chlorinated water can cause serious and
lasting damage over the course of a lifetime.
Lung DamageIt is never
a good idea to inhale deadly chemicals, yet consumers who take showers in
chlorinated water inhale large amounts of chemicals every time they take a
shower. The water and steam from the
shower are inhaled and go directly into the bloodstream. Breathing in the chlorinated air also takes
the chlorine directly into the lungs. Chlorine
is especially damaging to the lungs and continuous exposure will decrease the
lungs' ability to function properly.
Even though the exposure is slight during each individual shower, the
long-term effects of the exposure to chlorine in shower water can have a
General HealthPerhaps the
greatest threat to the consumer's health is the damage that chlorine can do to
the body's ability to absorb vitamins. Chlorine
prohibits the activation of two very important vitamins and this causes serious
health problems. First, chlorine
prevents the niacin in Vitamin B from becoming active and this can affect mood,
sleep patterns and the ability of the body to produce and use insulin. Vitamin D is also severely affected by the
presence of chlorine. Chlorine does not
allow Vitamin D to become activated, inhibiting its ability to function in cell
growth, cell repair, digestion and maintaining a healthy immune system. Consumers
can ensure that the chlorine in their water is converted into a less dangerous
chemical with the use of a shower filter.
The shower filters neutralize the negative impact of chlorine in the
water by ionizing chlorine into its less dangerous form: chloride.
