Although water contains no essential nutrients, it plays a vital role in a child’s health and development. Water makes up more than half the body weight in children and is also essential in the proper functioning of all the body parts. Which begs the question.
What kind of water is fit for consumption by children?
Only water has the power to invigorate, quench, and purify your body.
However, for decades, the marketers of the agri-food industry have praised the merits of multiple drinks, each more “thirst-quenching” and “energizing” than the last. Little by little, packaged waters, “fruit juices,” and countless lemonades have insidiously replaced the natural water essential to our health.
Often sweetened, these addictive drinks activate and promote the development of many diseases such as:
– Lack of concentration
Habit gradually creates dependency. These ersatz drinks are now regularly consumed by increasingly young children in place of water.
And yet, pure and living water promotes intracellular exchanges. It brings to the organism in a full charge of the children, vital energy, saving, and balancing.
The energizing effect of water promotes mineralization and the elimination of waste via the kidneys, the intestine, skin, lungs, and certain glands.
Immunity is developed in humans during the first early years of life. Drinking living and healthy water allow children to naturally develop their immune systems.
The water balance is however precarious. Most waters stagnate quickly, the hygiene of bottles, glasses, and gourds must be the subject of special attention.
Pollutants, excess minerals, and pathogens should not be part of the daily life of young children.
High sensitivity to toxic products
Babies and young children are very sensitive to toxic and polluting products. It has been scientifically shown that the younger the child, the more sensitive he is to pollutants.
In this regard, a study conducted by Professor Luc Michel, a specialist in endocrine glands, published on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, shows that in Belgium children who were under 15 years of age during the disaster nuclear in 1986, developed twice as many papillary thyroid cancer as their elders. The main reason for this phenomenon is that cells multiply faster in a growing being.
One observation is clear: any alteration in the process of DNA formation in a young person amounts to ensuring more quickly, the multiplication of organic dysfunctions.
Giving preference to certain waters according to the age of the consumer is an illusion. We all need to drink biocompatible water, especially children.
Choosing the right type of water for your children
Breastfed babies drink little water outside of feedings because breast milk is mostly water. On the other hand, when the baby is fed with formula, different ingredients including sugar are added.
This is mainly to improve palatability. The sugar present will increase thirst in the child.
It will therefore be necessary to regularly offer water to the baby. Which water must you give preference? Spring water, mineral water, tap water, or filtered water?
Pure spring water drawn with griffin contains a balance of essential minerals and beneficial germs for the development of the intestinal flora. It participates in strengthening the immune defense.
This is the reason why pediatricians tend to recommend bottled low mineralized spring water. They are partly right. In amorphous form, minerals are little recognized by the human body.
It is, therefore, better that the water is very weakly mineralized. Unfortunately, as soon as it is bottled, the quality of the spring water deteriorates rapidly.
Bottled spring water is “empty of energy” therefore not very draining and does not provide biocompatible materials because they are simply not bioavailable.
Mineral water is simply to be avoided in infants because it is much too loaded with minerals. Originally, this water was “medicinal” water.
Taken with a griffin, it was mainly intended for adults and exceptionally for children to treat certain very targeted pathologies. These waters are not intended to be consumed daily, let alone by children.
Bottled mineral water has even more drawbacks than bottled spring water. Still, the presence of minerals in the form of salts, trace elements, organic and inorganic is beneficial and all of them are excellent and indispensable.
Even if they are not always assimilated, they induce exchanges between the extracellular medium and the cell. Unfortunately, bottled water lacks certain essential factors: the energy produced by a coherent and natural movement, the presence of air, the bioavailability of the elements, the vital balance creating the energy that allows stability in the time
Even if, tap water is safe to drink across much of the United States, according to the WHO, however, tap water is drinkable and considered good for health (adults only), it often happens that its taste, smell, or quality leaves much to be desired. We find more and more often pollutants, hormonal residues, or fine particles (nanoparticles) whose effects on the medium and long term are not yet known.
As standards vary from state to state and sometimes even from region to region, it is difficult to navigate. Tap water, however, contains too many unnecessary elements such as pollutants, suspended matter, flocculants, and a quantity of toxic or poorly assimilable minerals.
However, tap water has many advantages over other water. It is better controlled, easily transformed, economical, ecological, and always in motion.
Naturally filtered and free of all chemicals, it contains minerals and traces elements. Therefore, this water more easily recovers its primary character and remains stable over time.
Obtaining the equivalent of spring water is not an easy thing, but approaching it becomes possible because water has a great capacity for self-regeneration.
Few filters, however, allow a coherent filtration i.e. filtration that retains most of the harmful or excess matter and leaves the minimum of essential minerals. Invigorated and filtered, thanks to the various filters, filtering fountains, and invigorating elements, the water can meet the needs of everyone, even young children.
It thus becomes again the key element essential to the development of our children and their balance.
