Daily Water


You need purified water everyday. Go ahead and use tap water. Tap water is required to meet stringent federal guidelines. Bottled water does not have to meet these same standards. Purify it and chill. Add a squeeze of lemon or lime juice for a treat for your taste buds and immune system.
