Is Bottled Water Superior to Tap
by Christian Duque
As many of us know by now, the body is made up of more than 70% water. Many lifters are even more obsessed with water because of the high-end creatine products they’re using. At Tokkyo Nutrition, we have some amazing muscle-building products, but if you’re not properly hydrated, you will simply NOT make the most of your gains.
One key principle we’ve always advocated is quality. Quality in your meals, where you train, & what supplements you take. It would be absured if we didn’t extend that very important principle to the water which we drink. It’s very important that the serious lifter really analyze where their water is coming from. Sadly, the hunt for H20 can be as misleading as the one for choice supplements. At Tokkyo Nutrition, we’ve set a very high standard. We haven’t set this through hype, rather, through excellent customer reviews & tons of repeat business. That’s the benchmark of any great business – keep those customers happy & keep them coming back!
Now when you look for water, you’re going to find that some will charge you good money per bottle (e.g. Aquafina, Dasani). Would it surprise you that not all bottled water is spring water? Would it surprise you that some retail water might actually be nothing more than filtered tap water?
I’m very fortunate to live in Louisville, KY, where we have some of the cleanest tap water in the country, but even here, I like to mix my Deca Creatine & Diesel Fuel Pump with spring water. Is there any statistical data that asserts its better than straight tap water? No, there really isn’t, but spring water tastes better, feels more pure, & when you’re taking expensive products designed to build muscle, you don’t cut corners. Another benefit of buying a liter bottle of water is that there’s a psychological convenience about it. Chances are, you’re not going to throw away half a bottle of $3 water. You won’t throw it away because it cost you money & you won’t throw it away because if you can’t drink water, you’re the kind of loser that probably can’t lift weights or eat six meals a day. That half bottle of water becomes a challenge almost.
Speaking of psychology, be if you’re supplementing with powerful agents like Deca Creatine, Diesel Stim, & Diesel Fuel Pump, you should carry around a liter bottle of water at all times. Once you drink it, refill it. A liter is the perfect size. If you walk around with a gallon jub in corporate America, your peers might write you off as a nutjob. A gallon jug is also impractical to carry. A liter is the way to go.
Remember – not all water is created equal – and drink lots of water throughout the day. Every supplement, from whey powder to prohormones, requires an abundance of water in the system to work its magic for you!!
