To lead a healthier life, one of the simplest changes you can make is drinking water instead of other beverages that are heavy with sugar and calories.
So, if you want to eliminate or moderate calories, sugar, caffeine, artificial flavors or colors, and other ingredients from your diet, choosing water is a right decision.
And, In today’s on-the-go society, where most of what we drink comes in a package, bottled water is always the smart and healthy choice.

By federal law, the FDA regulations governing the safety and quality of bottled water must be at least as stringent as the EPA standards for tap water. And, in some very important cases like lead, coliform bacteria, and E. coli, bottled water regulations are substantially more stringent.
