We’ve long thought that one of the best ways to ruin a perfectly good cocktail (or any drink, for that matter) would be to use non-filtered ice cubes. For one, just look at the difference between filtered (left) and non-filtered (right) ice cubes above! The difference is really amazing. For the most optimal ice cube, we should add, double boil Mavea-filtered water before icing!

Today, we got an added, enthusiastic endorsement of the Mavea-filtered ice cube by, none other than, cocktail connoisseur, Warren Bobrow, saying in his Memorial Day weekend cocktail post today:

“… I made some giant ice cubes using my Mavea pitcher for this cocktail. Up here in the country our water is full of minerals that can taint the flavor of the cocktails and especially your ice. I don’t like stuff floating around in my ice.

The Mavea makes my ice taste like ice, not like dirty rocks.”

Check the recipe Warren’s talking about HERE, and have a happy, tasty Memorial Day!

We try to do the best we can to live the healthiest life — for both our families and ourselves. We try to choose the best foods, we wear our seat belts, and we even floss (most days.) But what about the thing we use the most: water?

The water that comes out of our tap — the water the we use to cook and drink with — may not seem like too big of a concern. You just turn on the faucet and it’s there. But the truth of the matter is that in almost all areas of the country the water that comes out of the tap could use a little (sometimes a lot) of help.

In fact, tap water contamination is proving to be a growing concern in residential spaces all over the globe. Here are some examples…

Living in:

A heavily forested area? Many forested areas surround active (or inactive) mines, which have shown to allow arsenic, cobalt, cadmium and manganese to seep into corresponding water supplies.

Farmlands? Herbicides, pesticides and insecticides, which are used on most inorganic crops, are washed away by rain and irrigation — becoming part of the water supply.

The City?  If you’re living in the city, you probably already know the main concern — pollution. And perhaps the most notable pollutant? The ever growing appearance of pharmaceutical drugs in major cities’ drinking supplies!

So what are you to do? FILTER YOUR WATER!

Yes, it’s really that easy. Filtration systems and water filtration pitchers (like our Mavea products) help to greatly reduce, if not eliminate, the majority of these harmful and rather nasty chemicals and contaminants. Problem solved! Now, time to floss.

If you’re feeling down or just in a bad mood, Journal of Nutrition suggests that even mild dehydration can dampen your spirits.

Researchers have tested people’s moods at different periods of exercise and hydration and found that more they were dehydrated, less happy they were.

There are also other health benefits to drinking at least a gallon of water a day. Studies have shown that drinking 16 ounces of water when you wake up can increase your metabolism for the rest of the day.
