The Importance of Water

We all know about the importance of water. But are there things about water that you don’t know?

Humans drink 1.5 litres of water a day. If you don’t, you should! Without water, you would die in a few days. Depending on your size, water constitutes between 55% and 78% of your body.

Your brain is made up of 95% water, your blood 82% and your lungs are 90% water. A mere 2% drop in your body's water supply can trigger signs of dehydration. Mild dehydration is also one of the most common causes of daytime fatigue.

Your entire anatomy and physiology depend on water. Water helps remove dangerous toxins from your body, cushions your joints, carries oxygen and nutrients into all your cells and helps regulate your body temperature.

Water is one of the best cures for our most common ailments and can treat allergies, asthma, depression, high blood pressure, diabetes, headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, alcoholism, lower back pain, neck pain, and more.

Importance of Clean Water

Water covers over 70% of the Earth, yet 99% is unsafe or unavailable to drink.

1.2 billion people lack safe drinking water, making clean water a global health issue.

2.6 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation. One flush of a toilet in the West uses more water than most Africans have for a day's washing, cleaning, cooking and drinking.

Many of the 10 million child deaths a year are due to unsafe water and lack of sanitaion.

At least 2 million people, mostly children, die annually from legionella and other water-borne diseases.

This is where Tarn-Pure comes in.

Mountain lake - a Tarn

What is a Tarn?

A tarn is a mountain lake formed in a valley that has been excavated by a glacier. The word tarn is derived from the word 'tjörn' an Old Norse word meaning pond.

In the UK, tarns can be seen in the English Lake District and Pennines. Tarns provide some of the most beautiful and spectacular scenes on our planet.

Bacteria in Water

Even in a natural environment like a tarn, water is not sterile.  Bacteria are as much a part of nature as good, clean water. Water should be free from pathogens: micro-organisms capable of causing disease. 

Tarn-Pure kills Legionella, Ecoli and other water-borne bacteria. And stops people dying from the diseases these bacteria inflict.

Furthermore, Tarn-Pure is the most environmentally-friendly and cost effective way to save human lives from such diseases.
